This is the best way to visit Auschwitz and Krakow by far. Our driver Agnieszka was extremely helpful and kind, and the car was very comfortable. The tour itself was very informative and helps you truly understand the history of the area. Krakow is also very beautiful with many good restaurants and sites to see. I would 10/10 recommend this to anyone.

We were treated very well. We were thinking of making the journey by bus instead the courteous and very nice Lech waited for us at the meeting point with his comfortable Ford.
