In spite of the exceptional hot weather the tour was very informative and emotionally touching. The Viator guide Vojceck was very professional, clear and helpful.

A very emotional trip I honestly believe every young person should be made do this trip as it would let them know how lucky they are to live now. The trip is in parts very physical to do and I would recommend Spring or Autumn as the best time. We did it in 38 degrees

Excellent tour. Guide was very knowledgeable and handled subject very sensitively but not emotionally. All practical arrangements very good and professional approach. Would highly recommend. Note that half day trip is 7 hours door to door

Excellent - tour guide in Auschwitz itself was thoroughly knowledgeable and passionate. The radio headphones allowed us to hear every detail. Teenage kids listened to every word - best history lesson they've ever had. .

This was a mixed bag, the tour guide on the bus was awful, he yelled at myself a a couple of other ladies about the size of our bags going into Auschwitz saying they were too big but on the bus he said they were fine. The guide inside was amazing and the tour of the camps was outstanding. A very sobering day out.

If you do not drive a car there, this half-day trip is recommendable. I found the video presentation aboard the bus very informative and a good way to spend about one hour bus ride.

Definitely recommend this tour if you are in Poland.
Very thought provoking and puts things into perspective . Be aware that this is a long tour tour, around 7 hours in total from pick up to drop off. Lots of walking because of the scale of the camp.
Can be exhausting both physically and emotionally.
Also be aware of weather conditions, we visited on a very hot day, afternoon tour so we were there whilst the sun set. Tourists who had visited earlier in the day found it very hard going in the heat, as there is very little shade.
Our guide was excellent, very knowledgable, informative and respectful.

Guide at Auschwitz-Birkenau was wonderful, guides on the bus were great. A very humbling experience, and I would recommend it to everyone. Seeing it with your own eyes make a lasting heart-breaking impression, and the guides do a wonderful job of demonstrating the upmost respect to all those who perished here. Would have preferred to choose pick up location and time rather than go around the whole city picking everyone up, and also would have liked to know that we couldn't bring our bags in. Would have left it in the hotel.

Athough difficult at times to digest, this is an outstanding tour. Our tour guide was very personable/likeable, and knowledgeable. Be sure to wear comfortable shoes - there is a lot of walking involved.

The tour was extremely good-pick up from the hotel was quick and very well organised at Auchswitz. The only bit of information which would have been useful to know beforehand was that handbags must be smaller than an a4 piece of paper for entering Auchswitz. Overall, I would definitely recommend.
