Traveler Tips

Wear comfortable shoes as quite a lot of walking on uneven and dusty ground.
It's a full day out and does involve a lot of walking on dirt and gravel paths so would not really recommend for anyone with walking disabilities.
There is lots of walking so be prepared - need to stay close to guide or you miss information.

Highly recommend
Alison_P, Feb 2024
Great service from start to finish We were contacted the day before with details of pick up (from our hotel!) Mini bus to Auschwitz English speaker tour guide who was amazing! So knowledgeable! Mini bus straight back to the hotel. Couldn’t have asked for more.
A great ecperience
Dianne_H, Feb 2024
We were picked up from our hotel on time in a lovely, clean and comfortable bus. Michal was our guide for the day, he was very informative and looked after us perfectly. Auschwitz is a must if you are in Krakow, the reality of a terrible moment in time brought to life. Our return journey was good and we arrived back at hotel well on time.
Would 100% recommend!
Charley_S, Feb 2024
Knowledgeable driver and tour guide. We had a fantastic day and would highly recommend this tour. Flexible pick up and drop off locations. We took our own packed lunch but they can provide these for an extra fee.
A must do whilst here
Elizabeth_G, Jan 2024
Tour guide was amazing trip was really organised. A great experience and a must do whilst here. Very informative and moving. Also gave us a lovely packed lunch
Too rushed
Melissa_D, Jan 2024
The tour of auschwitz was an interesting experience however, we felt the tour was very rushed and the group sizes were way too big. I think I would recommend attending without a tour but with a guide.
Outstanding and emotional
Dawn_B, Jan 2024
Even with snow the tour went ahead as planned with no delays. The driver and guide were fantastic. The tour itself was very emotional but definitely worth a visit so you can have some comprehension of what happened. You are outside 50% of the time so if you go in the winter months you will need to wrap up warm ,
mark_p, Jan 2024

The pick from our hotel was on time,the driver was excellent and pointed out landmarks during the drive. The guide at Auschwitz was brilliant and knew the dates and explained everything. The whole day was excellent and well worth it. The lunch box was more than adequate.

Must do tour
Suzanne_G, Dec 2023
A must do tour if you are in Krakow. Our tour guide was excellent.. very well organised tour and glad we went with the guide option.. our driver told us that on some tours people are just dropped off and then have to queue for ages to get on. Definitely worth the money and would highly recommend.
A very good and moving day
Frances_H, Dec 2023
From the pick up point - to the tour and back- a very good and moving day. This is a must if you are in the area - the site and exhibition was excellent and v thought provoking and a privilege to be allowed to see it all. The driver Michal and tour guide -Anna were exceptional. Thank you for a good day.
An invaluable experience.
Mark_D, Dec 2023

Great trip
Claire_S, Dec 2023
Very interesting and informative trip. Smooth process was contacted with time few days before and then WhatsApp day before asking if we required lunchbox. Driver Jacob was lovely even rung when running little late for pick up due to heavy snow. Anna was our guide she was lovely and very informative. Didn't rush us at all. Lunchbox very good value and delicious. 100% recommend
Excellent but sobering experience
John_M, Dec 2023

Enjoyable and smooth trip
Susan_M, Dec 2023
Michael our driver was very polite and made our trip enjoyable. He was very attentive and let us know where to go and what to do every step of the way
Sobering must see.
dawn_H, Nov 2023
The guide was very knowledgeable. The driver was on time prompt and always communicating. Sobering experience, but definitely something that everybody needs to see. So it's never repeated in anyone's lifetime.
