    Excellent service. Staff very helpful. Very organised. The price is very good compared to other operators. Definitely worth booking the self guided tour.
    Very moving

    A absolute must place to visit when you are in Krakow, it’s very moving & definitely a shocking experience but nevertheless, glad me, my husband & son went. Be prepared as it’s a very long day

    Well organized tour: departure on time from an easy-to-find location. Seats on coach are a little small for long-legged people like me though! Visit is dramatic and is a must for everyone. Although some visitors take the museum for Disneyland (shoutings, laughings, taking pictures where forbidden…) and are only interested in gas chambers… I only regret the timing for Birkenau doesn’t need 2 hours whereas Auschwitz museum takes much more than 2 hours! And with a tour leaving at 9am instead of 11am, we could have more time there and finish the visit with daylight. Visiting Auschwitz in the dark is a strange experience… Otherwise I recommend this tour and visit.

    The boarding of the shuttle was somewhat chaotic, but other than that I recommend Pawel company (the tour operator). Lots of walking involved especially in Birkenau. The tour we took was without a guide; you get a guide book instead (in your language). That gives some flexibility. If you don’t know much of WWII/Holocaust history, may be better to get the tour with an actual guide.
    A good experience

    Everything went well, the bus was nice and new. Transportations, basic information and guidebooks were provided just as we hoped.

    Pick up was a good location and the staff were polite. The tour was insightful and very educational.
    Great trip to auchwitz
    Alison_M, Oct 2023
    Great trip from start to finish, the coach was easy to find at the pick up point, our driver and tour guide were very well informed and helpful. We had a great visit the guide was very knowledgeable and explained everything slowly, we were given points of interest and made the trip easy to get round and not miss anything overall we had a very pleasant experience thanks.

    Everything from the beginning to the end was great. Especially our tour guide. A trip to recent history that shall not be forgotten
    Disappointing tour company
    Anne_H, May 2023
    Disappointing, booked a tour to Auschwitz with viator, the tour started at 12pm and included bus tickets but the tour was actually for 4.30 with free tickets so your only paying for the small bus but this isn't advertised. They crammed 24 people into the smallest bus Ive ever been in and my face was almost touching the seat Infront. Took us an extra hour of travel as someone arrived late and they decided to circle back to get them. We got one book between two to share that we had to return at the end which was ridiculous as how are you suppose to both read the small book at the same time. We then exited the bus and got lost due to no instructions. We ended up having to buy our own tickets otherwise we would have to wait 2 hours to enter and made our own way back. We told viator and they gave us no refund even though I explained we didn't use the tickets or the bus trip home. Wouldn't recommend booking with them as if you have problems they don't help at all. I'm sure they will reply to this with some rubbish about contact us if you have any concerns but they arnt willing to help at all. Extremely dissatisfied
    Response from Host, Jul 2023
    You left the tour once we arrive in the car park of Auschwitz. At the end of the activity the host or greeter was trying to contact You but Your telephone number was out of order. We have been waiting for You for 15 mins and no one contacted us that You are looking for a bus.
    Good experience

    Good experience! Self guided tours are perfect If you want to move at your pace. I'd suggest trying to get an audiobook on arrival however it's not a necessity as there's English translation all around. Also pack some snacks.
    Auschwitz and Birkenau...
    Raquel_S, Jul 2022
    Auschwitz and Birkenau should be in everyone's list to visit in Poland. As soon as we got there, we felt a sensation of mourning and praying. We could observe visitors walking silently throughout the grounds. We are grateful to have had the opportunity to take this tour to visit these two places.
    Great experience
    Dimitris_K, Jul 2021
    Our driver -guide Paul is a great professional and a very cool guy.We had a great time and we learned a lot from him.
    Well informed tour with a great guide
    Adam_R, Sep 2020
    A well informed tour with a extremely knowledgeable and friendly guide. Although this was a self guided tour, which is what I wanted, we were given plenty of advice on what to see and where to go. The guide was well read on the subject and answered any questions expertly on the tour itself and on tother aspects of history. We were given ample time to explore and well looked after during its duration. I would highly recommend this tour operator/guide to anyone keen to see/learn more about this aspect of a very dark time in Western modern history.

    Amazing Trip, with a very competent guide, everything was perfect. Very fast transport back to the city.
    Angela_C, Mar 2020
    Didnt get into Auschwitz, tour guide said it was closed but it wasnt ,only one guide book between two ,only got advised that we cant get in after we were on our way,got taken to a freezing cold church instead. If there had been better communication this could have been resolved, as it is they are saying no refund advising a good quality alternative was offered, (not offered just taken without being asked).

    Everyone who visits Krakow should book the Auschwitz Birkenau memorial trip to pay their respects. Our guides Pawel and Marek were very knowledgeable and helpful and prompt with pick up. I can highly recommend booking this trip.
    Great service!

    Ειχαμε μια ημερισια εκδρομη στο Auschwitz και ολα ηταν τελεια. Το λεωφορειο ξεκινησε ακριβως στην ωρα του με πολυ αναλυτικες οδηγιες απο τον ξεναγο. Μας προσεφεραν, επισης, βιβλιο με οδηγιες στα Ελληνικα. Σιγουρα θα το επιλεγαμε ξανα.
    Laura_B, Jan 2024
    Tutto bene ma è bene sia chiaro che si sta prenotando un"viaggio individuale" con accompagnatore e quindi ci si troverà a fare la fila mentre i gruppi organizzati passano senza problemi. Detto ciò, noi ci siamo trovati molto bene
