This way of visiting Auschwitz enabled us to focus on the site and not worry about transport, logistics, food, or other issues. The drive was comfortable, the background information from our driver was a fine supplement to the official tours presented by the museum, and overall made the day a well-rounded one. In the midst of all the intensity, the small group nature of this offering made the visit accessible to our entire multi-generational family.

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.

Karol, my driver was the kindest person. Very considerate, made sure I was always comfortable, very aware of time and the schedule. Everything flowed great that day. My tour guide in Kracow (cannot remember his name, so sorry) was so knowledgeable and pleasant. Great trip
