Reliable tour
Denise_M, Dec 2023
Overall the tour was very good. I have heard some horror stories from other travellers about no shows and cancellations. This company communicated well and delivered a very good tour of Aushwitz. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and was diligent in making sure everyone was kept happy. I was disappointed that our tour was booked for 10am and we received notification the day before that our tour was leaving at 650am and it wasn't going to pick us up at our hotel as promised. We had to walk about 8 minutes which was fine except for the foot of snow on the streets. We missed breakfast and we were travelling with a 10 and 12 year old so this was somewhat of an issue. The tour was English and Italian so all announcements on the bus were in both languages however we were divided on site for the tour. Aushwitz is a very moving place that you can only really know its history by visiting it yourself. I would recommend this company as overall there were very few issues.
Must visit …. But maybe shop around !

Time changed night before from 9am - 7am so had to leave without breakfast that we had booked. Cramped mini bus ride to the camps, played a video on way which was really informative. Parked up about 8:30 and went straight into the toilet queue but was then pulled out of the queue by the driver as guide was waiting for an 8:40 tour ! However, place is a definite one to visit, well organized, but harrowing 😢. Journey back was better although felt reluctant to drop back at hotels as booked and was trying to encourage market square drop off due to rush hour. All in all I would recommend the trip, may be better companies out there to book with,

Very moving experience by very knowledgeable guides. Be prepared for lots of walking although not at speed

Very sad history of this place. You have to go there at least once in your life to see this place live. Organization of the trip at a very high level.
WojciechRzepka, Jul 2022
The day before in the evening we were informed about exactly what time we would be picked up from the meeting point. The bus arrived a few minutes early so everything was on time. The driver was very polite. He gave a lot of directions. The guide was very interesting about the museum.

Anne was a great tour guide! Everything was perfectly organized from pickup to drop off. It was such a powerful experience! I highly recommend.

Michelle_H, Apr 2018
The trip was really well organised in terms of pick ups, transportation and entrance to both camps. However we found our guide, who was with us at both camps, to appear unenthusiastic and monotone which resulted in the experience not being as we had expected. This was a real shame as everything else was great.

Jessica_B, Apr 2018
They are new operators on Viator and that gave me initial pause. But it shouldn't give you pause. The operator was great! They picked us up on time and clearly went over the instructions and what to expect. When we arrived at Auschwitz, our fairly large group maybe 20-25 people was assigned a tour guide and off we went. It's a lot of walking so bring comfortable shoes. The entire tour lasted about 3 hours on site and an additional 1 hour each way for travel. It is more expensive than just going to Auschwitz but you are paying for the convenience and for that, I found it to be good value.
Una visita obligatoria!

Var en sterk og fin opplevelse! Vi ble hentet på tiden utenfor hotellet og ble tatt gått i vare på under hele turen.
Activité super mais le chauffeur vrai problème
MAURICE_E, Dec 2022
Guide ok par contre le chauffeur un vrai danger public Il a failli écraser deux piétons double plus de 5 fois trois à deux véhicules à la fois bref même si l activité était excellente et le guide aussi , ce dernier a vraiment tué notre journee
