What people are saying about Auschwitz, Poland

Very well organized, no extra money to pay on site Excellent driver, very friendly and on time. We were 7 people in the minivan, trip from Krakow was less than 1h30 min. The driver picked us up at our hotel. Since we were a bit in advance, we visited one train rail outside the camp. Then, he left us in front of the first camp to start the visit with a guide. After the first visit, small break to eat and we took again the van to go to the second camp, where we found again the same guide from the first camp. At the end of the visit, back to Krakow.

I took part on the Auschwitz-Birkenau Tour. The organization was very good and the whole tour was very informative. Our tour guide was Konrad. He was very professional and very friendly. I will recommend this tour option! Your Niklas
