We booked this tour after reading a lot of positive reviews about it...we were not disappointed!
On the first day (Auschwitz) we were picked up direct from our hotel promptly and were given clear instructions about the order of the day and information about the journey to Auschwitz. The shuttle was very comfortable and showed an informative video about the events after the Liberation of the camp. Again, when we arrived we were given clear instructions about times, meeting points etc. We were then taken into the camp where we were split into two groups and introduced to our tour guide. She spoke fantastic English and was brilliant. We learnt so much! She was perfect in her delivery, giving us time to look around, ask questions and take photographs. We both agreed that having a guide is a must here as without one you would miss so much key information. It was good to see both Auschwitz and then go over to Birkenhau.
On the second day, the pick up and format was as the first day. When we arrived at the mine we were quickly sent with our guide and went straight in. As with Auschwitz, having a tour guide really made the tours worthwhile as they have so much knowledge and insight into things that would be missed if you went without one. The tour guide here was also brilliant.
Overall I would recommend anyone going to Krakow to do this tour. Brilliant value for money, fantastic organisation and lovely people. The places were amazing to visit and have left me with memories I will have for life. Fantastic!
Extremely well organised and informative. Would recommend to all
Picked up on time, excellent guide at both locations
Tom who picked us up from hotel spoke good english also polite and informative. Guide at Auschwitz-Birkenau she was excellent good english and told us everything we needed to know re history and statisics. On the whole excellent value for money.and found it very moving. Thank you

the tour was brilliant was worth the money.everybody should do this trip at sometime. we were picked up at
the hotel on time tour guilds were very informative. could not fault the trip at all
Well organised with flexible collection from accommodation.
This is one of the most horrific and at the same time necessary places you must visit. It puts a great perspective on our humanity and the importance of remembering the horrors which occurred during this period so as not to repeat them.
Loved it! Very well organized, super nice staff and comfy transportation. Highly recommended.
It was something I had to do! To visit Auswitz Birkenau, my mother was German my father Polish! Well it was a visit that made such an impact on me! Seeing it on t.v was interesting but going there, and to actually to be there was such a moving and a very imotional feeling! I really think that everyone should visit this place!!!!!!!
