Amazing experience. Our time and pickup location had been changed the day before we were meant to go which was a bit annoying, as we had transport booked to the original pickup location. Other than that, we couldn’t fault it. The driver was lovely and very informative, and couldn’t do enough for us. Would recommend to anyone.

Great tour - we ended up on a guided tour in the end but I actually preferred this and it was good to hear what the guide was explaining in detail. It’s a really harrowing place so just be aware of that, some of the things there really shock you.

Great tour into a very dark page of history. This trip was intense and very emotional, knowing all the details of what took place in the death camp. Our guides for the day were very knowlegable into providing their knowledge for HOLOCAUST. I recomend this trip to everyone because we should not forget what happened there... It was one day and one activity that will stay with me for the rest of my life . That is why i visited Krakow so as to visit AUTSVITS.
