Fantastic, albeit for terrible reasons. Very moving, everybody should bear witness to this atrocity. It is all of our responsibility to ensure this type of thing is never allowed to happen again.

The trip was even more informative than I had hoped.. Not only did the history of the camps explained fully but done with respect to the victims. The guide was brilliant and certainly very good.

It was a humbling experience walking through Auschwitz-Birkenau: so many people had suffered and died here and yet in these inhumane conditions there were still people who helped others and risked their lives by doing so. Our guide, Sylvia was excellent and brought things to life by her narration.

Highly emotional tour with the guides there helping us to understand as best we can what life must really have been like in the camps. Everyone who visits Poland should make the time to go here.

Great Tour, the pick up location was close to our hotel in Krakow. It was well organized and the guide was great. Such a sobering experience, but it is a must see.

Highly recommend this tour. Very well organised and very informative. If you want more time then would be best to do this on your own but personally this went a a good pace and the guide was excellent.
I would definitely advise you take the guided tour. Auschwitz-Birkenau should be a reminder to us all how evil people can be and that we should never let history repeat itself.

Excellent value for money. Comfortable coach and very pleasant tour co-ordinator who spoke excellent English (as we don't speak Polish). Had a great day out and a very emotional tour of Auschwitz and Birkenau. The guide Auschwitz provided was exceptional in her knowledge and demeanor and she injected the exact amount of emotion that was required. All in all a great experience. Would recommend to anyone. We were picked up from within a 2 minute walk of our apartment and dropped back the same. We had considered doing the Auschwitz/Birkenau and Salt Mine trip on the same day but I am glad that we didn't as this was quite exhausting by itself.

Great tour that everyone must take. This is a place that holds so much heartache and shock, but is a must when insisting Krakow!

The movie we watched on the bus was very informative. When we had the tour at both locations, we were lucky enough to have the same tour guide. She was awesome! She said she had worked there for twenty years and you could tell. I could listen to her all day! We were traveling with a 7 year old and a baby, and never felt that we couldn't keep up. Would recommend this tour to anyone who wants to go there.
