This was an excellent and well organised trip. Picked up directly from our hotel, we also had the add on of lunch (sandwiches, drink, snack and fruit) which was very handy. The tour it's self was at a good pace and the guide was very good, knowledgeable and easy to follow. Slight issue - when the group had to walk single file, the people at the rear would lose signal and be unable to hear the guide. I would highly recommend.

Well worth it. A surreal experience. Don’t plan on doing anything after, make this the one thing you do in the day. Just so much to process.

The price was cheaper compared to others. We started tour earlier as they sent an email to me and followed by calling for further confirmation. Driver arrived on time to pick up me and he speaks english very well. The overall was good and I recommend to others as well. Thank you

insanely well organised. I was called + got a message the day before for the exact pick up location and time (we had to walk like 4 minutes). The bus then left on time, our guide picked us up in front of the bus, we visited Auschwitz first, then a short bus drive to Birkenau. 20 minutes after we left back to Auschwitz and around 7.5 hours later we were back home.

Would highly recommend this minivan trip to Auschwitz. We had chosen to be picked up at 11am but were contacted the evening before by our driver to say he would collect us at 8am instead, which wasn't a problem for us. We were collected from our apartment on time, the driver spoke great English and wore a mask. The minivan was modern and clean. We collected another family then set off to Auschwitz. It was a pleasant drive and everyone wore masks. Upon arrival at Auschwitz our driver took us through the entry point where we were handed over to a museum guide. She was fabulous, had lots of knowledge and was very respectful. The pace was ideal for us, we didn't feel rushed. We had a 10min break to eat the lunch we had brought with us then went back to our driver who took us to Auschwitz 2 where the same museum guide was waiting for us. After being shown around here our driver was waiting outside for us and took us back to Krakow.

Hard experience but to do. Well organized. Requested a time, the night before they move it in advance of an hour. They could have been more precise. Meeting point for the return: The last traveler showed up an hour later. Better to give a definitive time. Very good guide with excellent Italian. Recommended

Trip was organized very nicely. The guide was very friendly and informative, you could have seen she knew a lot about the topic. The only annoying issue is that they moved our time from 11 to 6:45, which was very annoying, as we have arrived to the city at night..

The tour was well organised and ran on time. The transport was very nice and comfortable. The guide was very knowledgeable and smoothly ran us through everything. There was a good pace to the information which was important given the context, it would have been easy to get upset by what was being witnessed, but the steady flow of commentary prevented us from reflecting too much and getting distracted in misery.

Very well organized, no extra money to pay on site Excellent driver, very friendly and on time. We were 7 people in the minivan, trip from Krakow was less than 1h30 min. The driver picked us up at our hotel. Since we were a bit in advance, we visited one train rail outside the camp. Then, he left us in front of the first camp to start the visit with a guide. After the first visit, small break to eat and we took again the van to go to the second camp, where we found again the same guide from the first camp. At the end of the visit, back to Krakow.

The day before the trip, we received a call and they confirmed the pickup time. Our driver Peter arrived on time and took us straight there. Was great to skipped the security queue, there were many school parties that day. Finally the tour was conducted by a fluent English speaker. Happy to recommend.

We we're told it was a hotel pick up. It wasn't. But only had to walk 8 mins down the road. The trip was really good the lady who did the tour was excellent. After the tour finished it was all back on the bus this is when we we're told that everyone would be dropped of at the same place. Hotel Radisson blue. Very compitant driver even though the weather was very bad. So of the bus and a 25 min walk back to our hotel. Really enjoyed the day but could have done with more information about travel arrangements. But thanks for a very memorable trip
