What people are saying about Auschwitz

Chris our driver was great. He picked us up from the hotel on time and drove us safely to Krakow, stopping once for a comfort break. Chris gave us a map and suggested a route to walk around the town. At Auschwitz he escorted us to the front of the queue prior to the tour starting. He was waiting in his car after the tour and again drove us safely back to the hotel.

We found a very good-looking guide whose story was incredibly interesting, interesting and touching. We highly recommend Basia and Robert from Denmark.

The lunch was medium. The bread was wet and tasted not very well. But the tour was amazing, impressive and a great guide.
