What people are saying about Warsaw

Everything was organized and planned to the point. Our tour operator picked us up from our hotel, drove us to the train station and made sure we hopped on the right train. Then, we met up with our driver in Krakow who took us to the the city centre since we had some time to get a glimpse of it. Then, we met up with another driver who drove us to Auschwitz. Afterwards, we returned to Krakow when we had the opportunity to view the city with its beautiful Christmas decorations. We hopped in our train and our tour guide waited for us in Warsaw to drive us back to the hotel. Overall, it is a very tiring one day trip, since you wake up very early and return at night, but worth every penny since its organization is to the point!

Fantastic experience. Visiting places that have always been studied is very suggestive. Especially seeing with your own eyes what the holocaust was. Perfect tour organization. Same thing with driving. Really exciting tour.

Everything was as in the description. Transportation from the hotel and back was on time. All people that take part to this transfer are very polite. The lady during the exhibition was very good and open to any questions.

Very good organization of the excursion and the schedule was followed! Excellent tour of Auschwitz and Krakow was beautiful! I highly recommend it!

Mateusz was an amazing driver. We enjoy the the trip.
