Hassle-free experience
Zhiguang_Z, May 2023
Hassle-free journey from Warsaw and it was great also the tour squeezed in a couple of free and easy hours in Krakow!
Rude guide
Hrushikesh_V, May 2023
Excellent tour but the guide in Auschwitz’s tour was quite unfriendly. At one point was on the phone and 2 from my party were left behind. Not paying attention to the well-being of the members. When brought to her notice was quite rude and unkind. Not learnt much about kindness and empathy in this place which should have taught someone by now. 🙏🏽
Excellent trip...
Victor_H, Mar 2023
Excellent trip We really enjoyed guide/driver Jasper. Woud highly recommend. Only one small negative. The tour promised perogies for lunch. We had pork chops instead. Good, but we were looking forward to the pierogies.

Not happy!
Eileen_H, Jun 2022
We had a group of seven. Our guide (your employee from Viator) that pick us up from the hotel was over 20 minutes late. We even paid extra for her to pick us up at our hotel because we were a little bit further from the town center of Warsaw She was an extremely slow driver! I believe it was her first time ever driving a van! When parking a van she parked too close to the sidewalk and scrape the whole front end bumper of the van! She also missed several turns which added time. When making a U-turn we almost got hit by an oncoming car 🚗 We also missed The first 20 minutes of our tour. 😡 On the way back to our hotel we stopped at a gas station to grab a quick drink and use the restroom. We asked our tour guide if she needed gas and she said no. Looking at the gas gauge we knew she would not make it to our hotel without getting gas there at the gas station we stopped at. When we got towards our hotel. We were five minutes away and running very late. We had to go get a Covid test And told her we had an appointment before we left back towards our hotel and she needed to go get gas! It made us late for our Covid test at the airport as well. 😡.
Response from Host, Jun 2022
Dear Eileen, I am very sorry to hear that our services did not live up to your expectations. My sincere apologies for the unforeseen inconveniences. Please note that our priority is safe driving, so our drivers can not exceed speed limits. Also, she wanted to please you with lunch around noon, before the museum tour. Unfortunately, the eating there took too much time, which caused you to be late. As for the petrol, yes, the car needed petrol which is usually necessary for them to run. We still hope that your visit to Auschwitz-Birkenau was a valuable experience for you and that you will keep plenty of positive memories from your stay in Poland.
Amazing Historic Experience
Michelle_P, Feb 2020
The trip was amazing. Very well done as the tour guide was informative and sensitive. You get a real sense of what happened by seeing the location and artifacts.
Convenient and Professional
Victoria C, Dec 2019
Highly recommend this tour if you wish to save the hassle from finding your way to the site yourself, since the tour is arranged for you and the transport is so convenient. They were kind enough to accommodate my request for an early tour so I could return to the airport. Our driver Pawel was professional and helpful. Don't miss this powerful experience
Well organized tour!
Michael_C, Nov 2019
My husband and I took this tour from Warsaw. It is a long road trip. 3.5 to 4 hrs. It was so worth it! Everyone should visit Auschwitz at least once in their life.

A poignant and powerful experience
Tom_I, Aug 2019
Although it was a long drive to and from Warsaw, we had a wonderful driver who took good care of us throughout the day. When we got to Auschwitz, we joined a group with a terrific tour guide (Agnieszka), who could not have been more respectful of the place and what happened there. It made for a poignant and powerful experience.
Auschwitz from Warsaw in 1 day
Lawrence_M, Jul 2019
This tour delivered as advertised. Although it's a long day of travel, and the price is a bit excessive, we spent the appropriate time at Auschwitz and experienced everything we wanted to. The driver was professional and excellent.
Private tour of Auschwicz
Beth_E, Jun 2019
Robert was our driver and was wonderful. He was knowledgeable and friendly and right on time. The tour of the camp was inspiring and informative. Would highly recommend.
Excellently organized tour with a lot of information to learn about Auschwitz
Luka_L, May 2019
Driver pick up us at the hotel and we drove for about 3.5 hours to Auschwitz with one stop on the half of the route. At Auschwitz other people also came from different places and guide with all of us went on the tour where she explained all details regarding Auschwitz and besides all information she provided her english was excellent so it was very pleasant to listen to her. After the tour we had some lunch which was ok and then again 3.5 hours drive back to the hotel with one stop. I really recommend this tour because you can learn plenty of stuff regarding Auschwitz and it is very well organized.
Great facilitation
Sam M, May 2019
While the experience was great & worth the investment, last minute time changes made it challenging.
The memorial is 4 hours drive one way...
Faiz R, Sep 2018
The memorial is 4 hours drive one way to Auschwitz and includes 2 hour walking tour of Krakow. Our guide at the memorial was outstanding and we this is subjective to several history tours on our trip. Her emotive and well organized commentary kept us on top of history at each section of the memorial. Needless to say, Auschwitz is a testament to the ultimate nadir of our human morality and the pinnacle of its apathy!!
junkmailajb, Aug 2018
This tour was so humbling and the tour guide at Auschwitz was amazingly knowledgable. I would highly recommend this tour. Janis B Fort Lauderdale

Well organised tour. Our guide was superb and transfer from Aushcwitz to Birkenau was smooth.
The drive from Warsaw was extra long...
csim, Oct 2017
The drive from Warsaw was extra long due to construction, so our day was 14 hours. The driver was on time, professional, and willing to stop a for a break each way. The lunch was ok, the Polish part could be improved, meaning... perogies, cabbage rolls, borscht, etc. It is quite chaotic as the tours get organized, pay toilets, book store, restaurant. All groups use the radio transmitter, but our system was very poor, with either interference from other tours, guide was not using her own mic properly, rain, and getting too far away from the base. The tour itself is very informative, upsetting, sad, etc, I would have to say that seeing how big the Birkenau section is, really hits home the horrid stories that we have all heard. It is very expansive, and there is a lot of walking for this section. Our group was glad we did the tour, but a long day, and not happy about the headphone/radio system.
