The guides were amazing and so informative. Our driver and main guide were super friendly and made sure we had very clear instructions on where we needed to be and when. We had a delay because of snow on the way back and had to detour and they kept us in the loop the whole time. We were not left wondering what to do at all. When we got to Auschwitz-Birkenau our guide for the museum was equally as amazing. She kept the group together and gave us so much information. It ended with a separate museum tour guided by our main guide of art by a survivor, that I did not realize was included, and it really brought the experience full circle. It’s a bit physically demanding in that there was a fair amount of walking and weather can make it extra difficult (it rain, sleeted, then snowed during our tour) so be prepared with good shoes, coats, rain gear, etc. I would highly recommend the tour to anyone interested and the price was very reasonable too for everything involved.

Really exciting area to visit. Our visit went a bit fast However, especially cool and visit Birkenau or Auswitch 2, where you can get to know the surroundings from movies and pictures. We could have spent some free time walking around and taking it all in a bit. But that was probably because we visited in December, where it closed at 2 in the afternoon.

Neatly picked up in the morning from I easy to find point. The guide was very clear and very accessible. The tour in Auschwitz-Birekenau was very impressive and was explained by a nice guide. After that the bus took us to an extra place which was not in the information we had beforehand, but it was a valuable addition to the trip.
