Great tour. Excellent guide. Very worthwhile

Really enjoyed our tour with Renata. She was very knowledgeable and pleasant. Great guide. Wilanow was definitely a worthwhile visit.

The tour was organised very well. Definitely to recommend.

The driver was very thorough and explained always transparently the next steps. He additionally gave recommendations on Sightseeing and made the 3,5 h of trip very entertaining and comfortable. The guide in Auschwitz Birkenau had a very nice and pleasant way of explaining the horrible events. She was open for any questions and made sure that everyone felt safe on an emotional level. To sum up, we would definitely recommend to book this trip. Jarek, the Driver, was the best driver to be with for such a long drive and a difficult and challenging destination. Dziękuję

Warsaw: Auschwitz-Birkenau Full-Day Group Tour Reviewed by Agnesa, 06/11/2019

Although the tour was a bit pricey, we enjoyed it immensely.

We’ve dreamed about visiting the Treblinka camp for a long time and this turned out to be a sacred and somber experience. We pray that what happened in Treblinka doesn’t ever happen again.
