What people are saying about Auschwitz

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.

Amazing experience. Our time and pickup location had been changed the day before we were meant to go which was a bit annoying, as we had transport booked to the original pickup location. Other than that, we couldn’t fault it. The driver was lovely and very informative, and couldn’t do enough for us. Would recommend to anyone.

Great tour - we ended up on a guided tour in the end but I actually preferred this and it was good to hear what the guide was explaining in detail. It’s a really harrowing place so just be aware of that, some of the things there really shock you.

Our driver picked us up at appointed time and place. She was professional, knowledgable, personable, and fun. We spent 16 hours with her and enjoyed ever minute. Highly recommend this service.

Great communication, good price, great day with a good driver
