This was a trip I'd like to recommend to everybody. It's a very powerful experience to hear all those stories right there on the spot. Hard, almost unbearable at times. The tour was well organized, staff were friendly and knowledgeable and everything went as planned. Plus you have a chance to see the beautiful Polish countryside on your 1,5 bus trip to the site and back.
Excellent tour, guide was passionate about what she was doing and very knowledgable
After some initial confusion about buses and an enforced change of group and return bus we very much enjoyed the trip. Our Guide Michael was excellent hitting just the right note for the tour, not over emotional yet totally respectful. His contribution was immense and gave great clarity.
An excellent tour with a super guide. The subject is obviously difficult to handle, and we were somewhat reticent to go in the first place. But, from a historical and humanitarian perspective, we felt we wanted to be informed. The organization was great, bus comfortable and information outstanding.
The tour was great. Our tour guide did a wonderful job conveying the proper attitude while still being informative.
The local tour guide was incredible, it is well worth going on this tour. A tour that should not be missed.
An emotional but must-experience day. The guide was fabulous, providing a lot of the history, facts and also very pertinent personal stories. I was engaged the whole day. While this is billed as a half day tour, plan for it to take most of the day; my pickup was at 8:15 AM and we returned at 4PM. There is quite a bit of walking but doable for anyone in reasonable shape.
Our tour guide at both Auschwitz and Birkenau was superb. She was very knowledgeable and covered as much as she could in the time that we had with the size group we had. This is obviously a very moving experience but definitely something that should be on your must-do list.
FYI, if you sign up for hotel pickup be prepared as they will pick you up at your hotel but they don't return you to your hotel.
Auschwitz and BVirkenau was an amazing tour. The guides that we had during the day had a wealth of knowledge about the whole tour and was very informative. Would highly recommend doing the tour and using viator. EXCELLENT!!!
Well organised tour with a very good guide.Hard to use words to describe this experience but we have paid our respects to so many people lost.
