    Michael from Royal Tours Krakow provided an excellent excursion and amazing service during my visit to Krakow-Auschwitz-Birkenau. After a last minute and late night online booking, Michael accepted my late night call, provided options for me to travel from Warsaw to Krakow — and even booked my train tickets for me which he promptly sent to me electronically. The tour was everything I had hoped for and the value of having luxury transportation was well worth the expense!

What people are saying about Auschwitz, Poland

Although this trip is approx 10 hours, it really didn’t feel like it. Visiting the two camps is an absolute must when visiting krakow. It’s very harrowing, so sad, thought provoking but essential to ensure nothing like what happened here ever happens again. Visiting the salt mines after the camps was incredible and lifted our mood. Again the time spent here went in very quickly and our group of five absolutely loved it. Chapel chandeliers made from salt are stunning! Our driver collected us from our apartment on time and made sure we met with the tour guides for each attraction. He dropped us back off at the apartment too. I would highly recommend this trip .

Organization: I had to call the organization, not having any news (I think that by reserving a Sunday for Monday, a little normal) One hour shift from the start, without really embarrassment. Transfer: The driver was at the time and place of the meeting that I agreed, so perfect. The driver explains everything perfectly in English Tour: Interesting, it's part of the story. Guide that explains perfectly. However, we did not visit all the buildings, for lack of time I think, a bit of a shame

This tour was very important to us and so we decided to book a "private tour". As it turned out, it was an absolute hit. Alicja made this day a special one. Everything was perfectly organized! From the pick-up, the trip to Auschwitz, the organization of our guide and the subsequent return trip (including a coffee break with typical local pastries). In addition, Alicja still has a lot of "knowledge" and thus we were able to start very well prepared. Highly Recommended!

Well worth it. A surreal experience. Don’t plan on doing anything after, make this the one thing you do in the day. Just so much to process.

Coach driver was very good kept us informed of changes , our guide was excellent , horrific but a must see .
