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.

The trip to Aushwich - Birkenau was very moving and an experience that although extremely harrowing was one that I am grateful to have taken. Both our guides were respectful and informative. I felt they had real empathy and understanding of the magnitude of the situation they were portraying to us.

Really interesting with good tour guide. The time could have been cut however we were waiting around for about 40 minutes before entering Auschwitz 1 and before getting the coach back to Krakow.

One cannot really say this is a visit to enjoy, more that everyone should do it at least once.
The journey to the camps sets the tone with a wartime video that brings a harsh reality to what is about to be experienced. At both the camps the guide gives out an amazing amount of information unemotionally, but with great sensitivity. No matter how much you think you know before going you will learn a lot more. The quality of the English spoken by the guide ensures that nothing will be missed.
The museum achieves a respectful balance between respect for those who suffered here and demonstrating to visitors what remains of the place and how things happened
The tour itself was well organised and would recommend it.

We were picked up and dropped off at our hotel, which made the day very easy. The tour was very well organised, the English speaking guide was knowledgeable and very respectful. This is a must do in Krakow, it does take most of the day nevertheless well worth it.
Totally recommend this.
