Pick up point detailed and easy to find. Pick up was prompt and van comfortable. Fully informed at arrival to Auschwitz I of the plan and tickets given. Ushered through decontamination and security and met our guide. She was very informative and easy to follow. Then break and back on van 5mins drive to Birkenau. Again same guide as before and very knowledgeable. Plenty of times to stop and reflect and also take photos if wanted. Then van back to krakow old town. Excellent communication from beginning to end. Highly recommended guided tour for 1st visit.

Everything was very well arranged! It was a bit confusing at the place where you had to wait because it was a meeting point of 2 organizations. But after we checked, everything was clear. We received very clear explanations from the tour leader and everything went well. In Auschwitz we got a very good guide. She spoke good English and explained well. She also clearly answered our questions. Time wise the tour was just right too! Recommended!

Brilliant tour and well worth the money. The pick up location was easy to find and well organised journey. The tour guide was extremely knowledgable and gave plenty of opportunities to ask questions and take a closer look at pictures, models, items etc - you weren’t rushed around each location. Although extremely upsetting, well worth a visit and id highly recommend using this company.
