What people are saying about Lublin

The day tour was fantastic though the tour was more emotional as it was one of the death camp. I am focusing on the tour guide. The more I praise about him will not be enough to measure his knowledge, his kindness as well as friendliness. I am very much satisfied to get him as tour guide in that entire day trip. I would really admire the effort of his to make us satisfied as well as filled with as much information as it can be.

Very nice trip. Highly recommended to everyone

We had a very knowledgeable guide (driver) on this tour called Martin and are impressively knowledgeable and skilled. We had a wonderful day and we all recommend a trip to beautiful Lublin and an otherwise dark and gloomy part of the history of the Majdanek Nazi camp. Horrible story which unfortunately is true, incredible enough. Highly recommend GetYourGuide to anyone who is planning to go here.

We had Jake and he was amazing! So knowledgeable and attentive to all our needs. He allowed us to do the activities at our own pace and always made sure we were comfortable. The tour itself is amazing! Majdanek was very sobering and moving and Lublin was beautiful!

Great tour with lots of information. The guide responded very well to questions and requests

Very interesting Tour. Excellent Guide with a deep knowledge of history
