We got picked up from our hotel at 715, it took around an hour to get to Auschwitz in which we watched a documentary. The guide was very good and informative it was extremely well organised. we were pleased we had chosen the small group tour as we weren't waiting around too long for lots of people.

This is my second time to Kraków and I still found this tour so educational and moving. The tour we took was over Easter weekend so it was very busy other museums and such were mainly closed but at no point did I feel we were being rushed or not given the same amount of information as any other time. The bus collection was close to our hotel and arrived early, the tour guide was helpful and informative while we were traveling and all the instructions given for times and pick ups were very clear. On arrival due to the amount of people we were split into groups, we waited in line for our allocated time and then our particular tour of Auschwitz-Birkenau we were given two guides, the young man who accompanied us on the bus who translated from the main guide of the camp tour this took a little longer but was still worth standing just a little longer in places. When we arrived at our second stop the weather was awful wind and snow coming in sideways! So we were given the choice of a long or slightly shorter version of events and although I had been before, I could not tell the group had chosen the shorter version. It was amazing that I managed to see by chance the other side of the camp this time around and it was still so emotionally draining. I would highly recommend this tour and the tour company looked after us the whole time. The only thing I would say is:- this states a 'half' day tour, you do really need to have a whole day put aside for the earlyish pick up and later afternoon drop off. A must do tour.

Everyone should see Auschwitz and the video on the way to the camp was informative. Local tour guides were great.

Everything about the trip was amazing. The tour guide was so informative and interesting, the guide on the bus was a lovely Polish girl who was very kind and informative. It was very upsetting but I think people need to know exactly what happened as I did not realise the severity of the torture these poor people incurred by the Third Reich.

Fantastic tour.

Highlight of my entire European trip. Whilst that might not sound appropriate, may I clarify. This was the most moving and deeply thought provoking tour I have ever been on. Given I have been on a number military tours around the world, this one will stay with me forever.

I've never been to such well organized tours. The tour guide picked us from the hotel with an air conditioned Mercedes mini-van on time. And the tour guides on site of both Auschwitz and the Salt Mine were superb, they were very knowledged, good English speaking and well prepared. For Auschwitz just be prepared, this is no picnic, and please don't take kids with you, this is no family outing.

The tour of auschwitz was very interesting,you hear the storys about these places but to be there was inspiring,so sad to think what happened in these places,we done the salt mines second day which i would advise as its a bit much to squeeze the two into one day. Salt mines are amazing!!

An excellent tour, led by a most amazing guide whose passion, great wealth of knowledge and real engagement with her party of visitors made for a really incredible experience. She really gave us the ability to visualise the sad and horrific nature of the camps by adding layers of information onto pre-existing conceptions gained from TV and photos. This visit was one I'd always wanted, and felt I needed to do, but our guide was a level above what one usually experiences - a must do tour.

This is NOT a half day - you will leave at 8.30am and get back by about 3:30pm so just bear that in mind. Take snacks and water and comfortable shoes. And tissues - lots of tissues. It is harrowing but very worthwhile. Hard to call in enjoyable under the circumstances but I am glad I did it. Our tour guide, Wojciek, was adorable and so helpful.

I wouldn't advise visiting Auschwitz without a private driver and guide,this tour is a very private experience and should not shared with strangers. Our driver was on time and made us feel welcomed. Our guide, Agnieszka Ostrowska, was extremely knowledgeable, her presentation made us feel that we were with a friend.

Excellent trip, highly recommend it. Our guide Ana was fantastic - very passionate in her delivery of information. It is longer than a half day - 11am to near 6pm for us - but well worth your time. Must do trip if you are in Krakow.

The tour company was very good on time and picked us from our hotel. The Auscwitz tour was excellent but this would very much depend on the guide you get. The salt mine tour was not our favourite but that was due to our preference.
