Moving and excellent tour, wanted my 15 year old son to see the destructive nature of extremism and to see what happens when democracy is replaced by tyranny. Have read many times about this dark period in history but nothing prepares for what you will see on the tour in Auschwitz. The freedom we have today is precious and was hard fought for, the rise of the Far Right again in Europe must be stopped.

Viator team was super responsive whenever we had a question prior to our visit.
Our driver arrived on time and was fun, engaged on conversations and gave us tips about Krakow. Once in Auschwitz, we met with our guide, an extremely knowledgeable guy that didn't limit himself in explaining about the place, but also made interesting comments and encouraged critical thinking.
The visit was extremely rough — as it must be.

An eye-opening reminder of how a democratically elected leader can take a nation down the path to fascism; exploitation of fear, anger and racism; and the false justification of crimes against humanity.

We found the trip very thought provoking and moving, our driver and guide Conrad managed to convey the horror of the camps and the enormous cost in human life. It was a sham that the sites are so busy that a we were not able to have some time alone to view areas bypassed on the tour, and a little bit more time between the two tours for refreshments.

Our guide and driver was outstanding, with the right knowledge and passion to make the whole day very enjoyable, even with the subject involved.
We had an early pickup and in hindsight a very good idea, we always seemed to finish just as the coaches arrived, everywhere we went. The trip did not feel rushed and I will be advising friends to use you again.

The tour inside Auschwitz-Birkenau was excellent, it was an extremely horrid rainy day but the tour guide very informative. Auschwitz was very, very busy but still had a sombre feeling.
The journey to and from was extremely uncomfortable because the driver did not give any information re the visit. The free drinks had to be asked for, I found him a rude person.
I would suggest taking drinks, food etc because it is a long day but very moving.

Our Guide hit just the right tone for this trip very respectful without over dramatising what is obviously already a difficult visit. Genuine small group on the mini-bus, kept together but joined up with around 20 others when arriving at the site. Definitely very important to go to both Auschwitz and Birkenau to fully appreciate the scale of this atrocity. High quality tour.

Sobering, but very good tour. The driver picked us up from our hotel in a very nice touring bus and after a few stops to pick up other passengers, we were in Auschwitz in about an hour. The drive was taken up by a very informative movie in the bus which gave some very good content to prepare us for Auschwitz. The guide was very knowledgeable but he moved very quickly and one of our older tour members was not able to keep up with him at Birkenau. The guide spoke quietly, but it was fine for us. The day we went Auschwitz was very crowded, but it was still a good trip.Birkenau is only a 10 minute drive from Auschwitz and it was much more large and open. Some of the members of our group continued on after Auschwitz-Birkenau to take a salt mine trip, but I would recommend doing that on another day, as our day was definitely filled by our tour.

I will never forget this tour. It is a must. I get emotional every time I think if it. The tour company guides were wonderful.
