What people are saying about Auschwitz I

Next time I would choose to leave from the pick-up point. We had already been on the bus for an hour before we even left the city. Auschwitz was very impressive, but I missed the time to look around and really let it sink in. The tours are so tightly organized and with such large groups at the same time that you have to make an effort to take in the things.

Bra tour! Kunde dock inte bli hämtad och lämnad vid mitt hotel, men det var inget stort problem för mig. I övrigt en trevlig person som anordnade turen och själva guiden i Auschwitz-lägren var också bra.

expert tour guide and fluent in english, very friendly and helpfull driver
