Wasn't sure if I really wanted to go on this tour but my husband did so I "tagged" along. I'm glad I did as it was an insight into the horrors of what people went through and made me look at the Second World War in a way I hadn't thought of, it brought home the suffering that millions of people whent through. The guide was very good and answered all our questions and took time to explain things to us. Not your ususal holiday tour but well worth a visit.
Auschwitz, by reason of the horrors that happened there, is not a place of entertainment. It is a place to go in memory and in honour of those who suffered and died there. The guide was knowledgeable and spoke excellent English. The museum brings home how bleak and terrible this place was. Everyone who can should visit Auschwitz to help ensure that such things never happen again.
Excellent tour guide, very moving and intense experience.
Seems a bit crass to reveiw a trip like this but it was excellent, harrowing and very thought provoking. Our guide was excellent and explained everything in a sensitive and caring way. I wish we had more time in each camp but i can understand with the travel distances involved. This is definitely a life changing thing to do. The orgainisation from the moment we were picked up to the return to Krakow was first rate !
This trip was powerful and very well organized. After getting on the bus, we saw a documentary on the camps, and when we arrived we met our guides and went right in. There were a few lines to get to some buildings, but that's because of the high number of tour groups. Our guide was fantastic and answered everyone's questions and more.
The guide was fantastic. The tour was a great eye opener, very humbling.
Superb! The tour guide (on the coach) was very informative anddeeply sincere about the need to visit Auswitch at least once I'm your life. The Auswitch tour guide was equally informative and sincere. I couldn't recommend this tour highly enough! Thanks for a great experience.
An excellent tour. The bus staff were very respectful, courteous and helpful. Our guide was extremely knowledge able and appeared passionate.
A 'must do' tour, very poignant.
I would definitely recommend Viator.
The trip to Auschwitz-Birkenau was very good, it was afterwards reflecting on it when it hit me most. The tour guide was excellent. Both sites were very busy, you were rushed along as there were so many groups.
