    It`s a sad History

    The Tour itself was good organized and very interesting, and the Guides from discover cracow are awesome. The right emotion in the right time. Auschwitz is a sad place and we should never forget what happened there and how horrible humans can be. The Place is huge and there is a lot to walk.

    Transport from Krakow in a comfortable minibus to Auschwitz, we were met by our guide and shown around the two camps, Due to the number of visitors we were unable to see all of the exhibits but thoroughly enjoyed what we did see. Be prepared for a long walk.

    Journey from Kraków about one and half hours. Tour guide himself was informative. Seemed a little rushed through. Trip back which should have been quiet and restful was a nightmare as the guide beside the driver never shut up the whole way back at an unnecessary volume.
