A very sad place that everyone should visit. Unfortunately, the museum is not very well organized. The group consisted of about 20 people and I believe that this is the maximum number for comfortable sightseeing. Nevertheless our driver who was also the tour leader spoke good english and was helpful.

This was an interesting trip and very informative, best to see it in real life to understand and feel the utter horror of it all. It is a bit of a conveyor belt with guided tours so I suggest that if you really want to take time and read things or stop for some reflection time then you are better off going on your own. We didn't get given any real time for lunch which was disappointing. We got handed our lunch as we set off from Auschwitz to Birkenau on the mini bus which was a short ride. When we arrived at Birkenau I expected the tour guide to give us at least 10 minutes to finish our lunch but they didn't, we had to get straight off the bus!

All in all the trip was well organised. Although we had booked with hotel pick-up, this could not be realized. The packed lunch was sufficient. Our guide (was a woman) was great. Because we were a relatively small group, she took her time and answered our questions. The visit to Auschwitz was very formative. Although we were there for about 5 hours at 30 degrees, we didn't mind because we were totally focused. This "experience" has a long-lasting effect.

You have to do this tour if in Krakow or nearby, it's a no brainer! Was very emotional but super educational and informative. Very well organised and great hosts and tour guide. DO NOT MISS. Was the best activity I did during my travels across all of Poland.

Pick up was scheduled close to the hotel as the bus could not come down the road we staying on. It worked out perfect and communication was good. We were able to leave bags on the bus since Auschwitz has a size restrictions on bags. I appreciated that. The tour was great and to include transportation and everything organized for us (even a few sandwiches!), it felt like a great deal. Would recommend anyone staying in Krakow and planning to do Auschwitz, to boom this way.

everything went smoothly- you get sent a time when they pick you up. its about an hour 30 min drive I believe to the first stop. you get bathroom and coffee breaks if you did not have breakfast. the concentration camp itself well words really can't describe, so I will try. very unreal experience to see what these poor victims had to go through. There is a guide that will take over and go through both camps. so extremely sad your lunch you can honestly eat whenever: there is like two sandwiches, water, juice, apple, a bar and mentos gum. really highly recommend to go.

This tour was well organised and sensitively handled. Our guide expertly guided us from pick up to handover at site and injected a welcoming friendliness and appropriate cheerfulness . I was understandably anxious about this visit but was made to feel comfortable as well as gaining new knowledge. The guide on site was excellent. This is not an easy trip in terms of facing the reality of the holocaust for most of us who have grown up with films and documentaries. I was able to quietly pay my respects as representative of my father who had the unfortunately duty of liberating another smaller camp, Bergen Belsen.

We had an excellent trip, once we did a reccy for where the pick up point was. The travel time is 1hr 30mins to Auschwitz, some other travellers didn't realise it was so far. As others say, it can seem a little rushed as other guides are behind you pushing your group onward, our guide was very informative and answered any questions we asked. Our coach driver was fabulous, he was funny, polite and a very safe driver. The tour operator was great and kept us informed as our trip was put forwards 2hrs.

Lunch was included and was nice, two rolls a piece of fruit, water and a snack bar. This was not given to us until 3pm so not really lunch time. We were picked up at 8.15am but a change of plan dropped us off in the centre so made our own way back which is one of the reasons we chose this option!
