Exceptional experience, well worth the money booking the private tour for such a sensitive piece of history. The guide was friendly and knowledgable and even gave us some information on a fellow Scottish national who was a prisoner of war here. There is a small restaurant selling food and drinks on site, however I'd recommend taking your own snacks as it can be busy. Highly recommended tour for such an important site.
Exceptional tour done with compassion and great knowledge, would highly recommend!
Outstanding personable and friendly tour. Ana our tour guide was patient and had a wealth of information. We strolled at our own peace and she provided access not available to all visitors. Outstanding and worth the exclusive price for those who want to grieve in private.
Startling, sobering, stark visions of what was. My great-aunt was exterminated here after she arrived! Visiting Birkenau was another eye-opener. The destroyed crematoria buildings were evidence of a failed Nazi regime. The Memorial Pool of Ashes was very touching and remains in my vision today.
The guide was professional courteous and friendly. Very well done.
A MUST SEE FOR ALL!
Our driver was very pleasant and we enjoyed chatting to him on the journey. The guide who took us around the concentration camp was excellent and s he managed to fit so much in on a very hot day maximising on the shade that was available. She answered all our questions and was very knowledgable.
Our guide was beyond satisfactory, she was truly outstanding and we would highly recommend her to potential clients of yours. Brian and Gloria Davies, Cape Cod, MA, USA
Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and friendly, she knew alot of incredible information that prior to visiting we would have never known. I would highly recommend this tour.
I would highly suggest anyone going to Auschwitz, the private tour is a must. My guide Peter took his time, answered any questions I had. In a place such a Auschwitz it takes a toll on you with what you are seeing and what took place. Peter's patience and knowledge of the history helped in such a serene place. Do the private tour instead of a bus tour with over 40 people. It is private, personal and with tour guides like Peter that help you see the history and walk and talk with just you. I can't say enough about how wonderful my guide Peter was, in such a difficult place. Thank You Sally Hoop
I wouldn't advise visiting Auschwitz without a private driver and guide,this tour is a very private experience and should not shared with strangers. Our driver was on time and made us feel welcomed. Our guide, Agnieszka Ostrowska, was extremely knowledgeable, her presentation made us feel that we were with a friend.
Excellent tour. The guide was excellent and was able to answer all our questions.
Visiting auschwitz was quite overwhelming and emotional. Anybody who doubts the truth of the millions murdered in the Holocaust should spend an hour walking around the camp. The truth is self evident.
Excellent. A very moving and personal tour. We had a smooth drive with introductory video on the way there from Krakow, then a tour by a delightful lady who knew the history well. Highly recommended.
Our driver arrived at 6.45 am and arrived at around 7.45. We were met by an extremely good guide who was informative and the whole experience was very humbling, emotional and truly brought home the reality if these camps. Would highly recommend this organisation for booking this tour. Cannot praise them enough.
Tragically mind-blowing experience made all the more poignant by our excellent guide and their great insight. Had the earliest possible booking in the day which worked well as any later would have meant waiting behind huge coach groups. We chose a personal guide (only 4 of us in the group) and I would absolutely recommend this. It meant we could always hear what was being said and could easily ask questions whenever we wanted.
From beginning to end the trip was brilliantly organised with timely pick-up from the hotel with dedicated transport for our use throughout. This experience is one everyone should undertake and whilst the learning can be quite disturbing we would all be better for going.
Unbelievable! Guide was perfection. She was very knowledgable and extremely helpful with helping my elderly parents.
SO glad I booked this trip having our own tour guide made all the difference.Very informative day and very emotional but well worth the trip.
Superb tour.Although harrowing our guide Theresa was excellent and informative and could answer all our questions which made the tour extremely interesting so lessened the horror.Did not realize the magnitude of the camps or the distances they brought people from all over occupied Europe.
Thoroughly recommend this private tour.It was extremely well organised .
I would highly recommend the tour of Auschwitz-Birkenau. It was interesting, poignant and very well organised. It was worth booking the private tour. The driver and the guide were both excellent. The guide was very knowledgeable. It is still hard to take in what horrors happened in these camps but glad we went.
Private tour with guide and the two of us, It was a place where everybody should go to pay respect to the millions of people murdered by the Nazis. We came away with understanding of the atrocities that happened to those poor people.it is not a tourist attraction but a memorial
The tour was excellent from start to finish I would strongly recommend this tour to anyone
The tour was very well organised, the bus picked us up at our hotel on time and the driver was very well spoken ( English ) we had a dvd to watch on the way to Auschwitz, on arrival we were introduced to our guide Monica again speaking very good English.
I would recommend this tour it was very upsetting but at the same time a must visit, everyone should see Auschwitz
it would make us all realise how LUCKY we are today.
Everyone should do this if they can. Excellent service personal guide.
Outstanding and very informative. Our guides knowledge and passion was fantastic. A very moving trip and so pleased we had our own guide.
While a very gruesome part of history, this tour is a "must do"! Our tour guide was Alicya who was the museum curator for the Polish National Holocaust Museum....she was extremely knowledgeable and answered the many questions we had for her. We would highly recommend taking this tour with her!!
