Great tour with a very knowledgeable guide, Barbara, who gave extremely detailed explanations and insights. We liked that it was a small group tour, 11 people in total. We were picked up from our hotel and given the option of where to be dropped off. Overall fantastic experience, well worth the money.

It was an incredible day, our guide was knowledgeable and managed to convey the most important messages and events. The van showed up on time at pickup and drove us back on time as well to our hotels. I am not giving 5 stars as I felt it was a bit rushed. Extend it by 30 mins and allow visitors to take more time inside the barracks, museum displays, etc.

Auschwitz-Birkenau is definitely worth a visit! The guide spoke fluently about history and events, came a lot of new information. In Auschwitz, I would have liked to stop for a longer time. There was a lot of walking in Birkenau compared to what to see, but the guide’s stories and accommodation bar were interesting. Transportation and other arrangements work well.
