I recommend it very heartily. The contact with the history of the war period made a great impression and emotion. I have read many books on the subject of war and the memories of people who survived hell in the concentration camp. However, contact, touching the walls of the camp and seeing the remains of those people leave unforgettable impressions, regret, sadness and, above all, great respect for the victims.

Our guide was fantastic. We were lucky to fall into a group of 8 people. This guide did nothing but with the tone of her voice to convey the feeling.

We booked 2.5 hours tour what was long enough for us. Tour was very informative thanks for our leader Iwona .

A visit to Auschwitz-Birkenau corrects some attitudes towards life. Definitely a letter of recommendation.

Very good tour, the information was well-founded and there were also appropriate answers to questions.
