What people are saying about Auschwitz

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.

Very interesting and impressive tour to Auschwitz Birkenau. The guide, Aga, explained everything clearly. Our driver, Mateusz was very kind. Picked us up at our hotel on time and brought us back: we had the choice to be dropped off at the hotel or the city center. I would definitely recommend!

wear sensible footwear, we went in sandals and now we are suffering from it, overall experience was surreal, I think everyone must visit at least once in there lifetime

Very impressive. You don't understand what people can do to other people. You must have seen this.
