    This trip was well organised. We were picked up from the Meeting Point on time and driven to Auschwitz-Birkenau. We then were provided with the entrance tickets and instructions on how will the group tour be split between the two camp sites. Our driver spoke very good English. He was waiting for us to take us back to our hotel in Central Katowice when the tour came to an end. Would recommend!

    A very impressive tour. You will be picked up at the agreed location and the driver speaks good English. The moment you arrive at Auschwitz, he clearly indicates where you are expected and what time. Then you walk through security and you enter a cinema. Here they have already well portrayed what it was like back then. When the film is finished, walk outside where the guide will be waiting for you. She first checks whether the headphones worked. Then the tour started in camp 1. Very clear explanation about the situation at the time. You get goosebumps when you walk around. Photos are allowed in some places. When the tour has ended in camp 1, you will have a 10-minute break, after which you will be taken to camp 2 by shuttle bus. That camp is mainly outdoors and is a very good addition to the images and stories you heard in camp 1. After the visit, you will return with the same shuttle bus, where the driver will be waiting to take you back.
