O transporte chegou no horário combinado, mas o que eu não gostei foi o fato de que ninguém estava usando mascaras dentro da van. Outra coisa, no anuncio estava oferendo buscar e deixar a pessoa no hotel, mas na volta me deixaram na cidade velha e eu tive que andar 1.5km. O que não é nada de demais, caso eles tivessem avisado isso no anuncio, o que não foi o caso. De resto, foi tudo ótimo. Tudo no horário, a guia era muito boa.

A shocking experience, everyone who visits Poland should have! The trip was well organized. Unfortunately we were in the middle of a strong rainfall so we had to stop in the middle of our tour in Birkenau... I will definitely visit Auschwitz again. I would also like to ask for a Greek speaking tour as well. That would be so much easier for us and do much more inclusive!

The tour is generally nice. The only problem is the tour I booked should start at 8 am but later the local guide cotacted me that it actually starts at 9:30. I am okay with both time, just want to remind Getyouguide to set the correct time. I think this problem has nothing to do with the local agency so I still give 5 stars.
