everything was fine except by the fact that we had the tour booked for 8:00am and we were called the previous day to let us know that they moved the tour to 7:30am leaving Krakow at 6:00am. luckily for us we were in Krakow already, but maybe someone having a non-flexible schedule could be compromised

The experience itself was quite eye opening and harrowing at times. Learning about the camps and what happened was quite a lot to take in. The guide explained everything in great detail and the numbers of people involved staggering. A must do activity, just do the word gets spread, be prepared to cry.

My Guided Auschwitz-Birkenau Tour was very informative and moving. Our Tour guide Natalia was very knowledgeable, passionate, comforting and willing to answer questions. The location of pick up was easy to get to and the coach driver was friendly, welcoming and a documentary was playing on the tv the journey to Auschwitz-Birkenau which was a great history refresher. I booked though get your guide and i would recommend Natalia as a tour guide and also believe that everyone should visit at least once in their lifes. Myself and partner would recommend this company too book through and very reliable.
