Pick up on time and friendly and charismatic driver, not very talkative though. Long drive but definately worth it. Auschwitz is breathtaking in a strange way. Our tour guide was alright but not as enthusiastic as you could expect. She did however show respect for the place and it's victims.
We booked our tickets online and had good communication in advance of the actual excursion. The driver was on time and friendly. We were glad that we didn’t need to find the Auschwitz sites on our own because you need to wind your way through various twists and turns to get there. Our actual tour guide at Auschwitz was amazing and we learned a lot. The whole experience was sobering but worth it. My only small critique is that the driver tried to avoid a traffic jam on the way back to Warsaw and we ended up taking rough back roads that took us an additional 1.5 hours to get back. If it hadn’t been for that, I would have given a 5/5.
Very interesting and well organized tour. The guide was very well-balanced and knowledgeable and called the atrocities at its proper name. Many became very concerned and wept openly over the gruesome atrocities against children, women and men.
The drive was wonderful and the conversation with driver & group insightful. However, the scorchingly hot day made the tour at Auschwitz itself rushed, stuffy and guide too irritated to allow us to contemplate the atrocities committed there. It was nonetheless a profound & insightful visit. The weather also cut short our tour of Birkenau. Do not go in the height of Summer.
