Takes the Hassle out of Visiting Auschwitz

You may be able to visit Auschwitz cheaper, as entrance to both sites is actually free. Auschwitz ii, you just walk through the entrance, no ticket required. A ticket is required for Auschwitz i, you can get them from the official Auschwitz website for free, but you can only enter at certain times of the day. Using this tour took out all the hassle of sorting tickets and travel to and from Auschwitz. We watched an informative video on the bus, and got free 25pln (£5.50 ish) guide book included within the cost. We didn't mind not having a tour guide as the booklet you receive has more than enough information in it. Also, the guy on the bus sorts everything out for you, tells you best bits to visit on each site and tells you where to be and where to go for tickets. Highly recommend if you want a stress free day visiting Auschwitz.

Very interesting, easy, good value and reliable!

As a young group of girls, we were staying in the centre of krakow and wanted to experience this important history. Booking through this website was very easy and there were many different tours to choose from to suit our needs. There were regular emails to remind us about the tour we had chosen and meeting points were updated when needed, these were very easy to find with them being central and pick up buses were clearly identifiable and on time. The bus journey was around 1h 10 mins from the old town and the tour lasted around 2 hours at auschwitz and 50 mins at birkenau (there was a short bus ride between). Our tour guide was engaging and very knowledgeable and made our trip memorable.

Bus was 30 minutes late picking us up. Otherwise excellent.

Arrived at the pickup point in good time. The tour guide was already there checking names. No sign of the bus as it was stuck in traffic. It finally arrived 30 minutes late. After that the trip ran very well. The organisation was good and the group guide who took us round Auschwitz was brilliant. The transport was adequate and we were told all the information needed to enter the site. Bearing in mind that the museum is free to enter, the tour was probably a bit pricey but we enjoyed it all the same. Would recommend the visit to everyone. Would also recommend shopping around for a better tour company who can stick to timetables.

Respectful and Interesting Tour - Couldn't Recommend More

This was the best way to visit Auschwitz - our guide was informative, respectful and the tour was the perfect length. It would have been difficult to properly understand the significance of a lot of areas of the museum without a guide and it was nice to be in a group for the sadder moments. My tour did change times so I would recommend leaving the whole day free just in case - but they gave good notice and everything ran on time. Auschwitz is a can't miss experience and as a solo traveller I would 100% recommend this tour as the best way to visit.

Excellent guide who explained the story very well

Would have liked to have stayed a little longer after the tour to see some of the exhibits in more depth. We elected to go on the early trip and there were not too many people. Certainly the best time to go as the number of people trying to enter when we were leaving was huge. Our tour guide was excellent and she gave a very good account of those war time events.
