    Paul exceeded our expectations of this trip although the experience was of sorrow with what happened at Auschwitz Paul was very informative and we certainly learnt alot with the information he gave us about Auschwitz and Kraków. Paul was very friendly and made us feel at ease as soon as he collected us we were made to feel like VIPs, he was very friendly and respectful and the vehicle was very smart, clean and safe.

    Thank you to our guide Pawel!! This experience was amazing from start to finish and Pawel was brilliant, really made the tour come to life with his knowledge of Auschwitz-Birkenau. He was really punctual and even asked us after the tour where we wanted dropping off in Krakow to make it easier to get to our accommodation. Can't recommend booking with these guys enough! 5****

    We can greatly recommend this tour with this organiser. He (Paul) contacted us beforehand to optimise the departure time. He had the tickets ready and the right live guide queued up, thus no time lost waiting in line for tickets. At the end he was waiting for us at the exit of the second camp (Birkenau). He drove safely and sensibly and gave us a lot of information. As for the actual tour (the reason for going) : absolutely worth it! It is both fascinating and dreadful (walking the same path as millions of people heading to extermination) , immeasurably sad yet hopeful, that we'll never again let authoritarian regimes build up to such atrocities
