We had a private tour with Barbara and she was an excellent tour guide. She was friendly and kind and really made the experience. We were able to really take in the history of the former camp location and have time to reflect and pay our respects. Barabara was very knowledgeable and the tour was well worth it - I would recommend anyone who is visiting Krakow to attend this tour.
