The hotel pickup was easy and convenient, our guide was pleasant and the video documentary on the way was very powerful. Our guide at the Auschwitz museum itself was phenomenal, and made the experience very real and emotional for us. This is an experience everyone should have, but it is not easy emotionally. The lunch was basic, but was enough. Birkenau is a must see after visiting Auschwitz and I was glad that this tour included both. I recommend a visit to Schindler's factory before taking this tour, as it provides a lot of great background on the start of the war and the German takeover. It is worth noting that you are not allowed to bring purses or bags larger than an 8x11 sheet of paper in with you, so leave them behind at your hotel and bring only the essentials. We were able to leave our bags locked on the bus, but I would've felt better had I just left it behind completely. It was safe on the bus, however.

We had an excellent time during our tour. It was well organized from the beginning to the end. The tour guides at both places did a good job explaining the areas and it was even better because you could hear how passionate they are. Highly recommended to take this trip.

My wife and I thought this trip was very good. Our tour guide was excellent. I would recommend the tour as it was an eye opener to the horrors of war.

Definitely worth spending the money and seeing the former concentration camp on this tour. Our guide was insightful, sensitive and thought provoking. She really brought to life the history of the camp and gave meaning to the prisoner's experiences.

Our driver was friendly and the included lunch was very nice. Buying lunch at the onsite cafe was very expensive!

Thanks to our guide, driver and the company for an excellent tour.

Great guide, very knowledgable. Some issues with people in the group wandering off and not remembering which coach they were on but that was not the guides fault.

Our tour guide kept us moving rather quickly. She also walked ahead of the group. There were numerous times that questions came up, but there was no time the ask them. She seemed disinterested in providing background information or answering questions. We were supposed to have an English speaking guide, but her English was difficult to understand.
