What people are saying about Auschwitz

Visit in French, at the top! Thank you to our guide (Edwige if I'm not mistaken) who took her time to explain to us certain details about these places full of history. A place to visit at least once in your life, you do not come out unscathed from visiting these sites…

Very good and informative tour. Our tour guide Barbara explained the sad history of both camps to us very sensitively. I can only recommend visiting the camp with a guide. The tour was in German. There was also time for questions and very detailed explanations.

Excursion organized down to the smallest detail, with helpful and very prepared guides who tiptoe you through the two fields and make you relive the aberrant history of those places.

our guide Mariana was very professional and the experience was something we'll never forget. I would highly recommend it if you're coming to krakow.

This will be remembered till the end of my live. Anyone should experience that place the learn from our past. Well organized and on time.
