Trip was really good, from puck up to drop off. It is at a fast pace which proved difficult to keep up with at times, and there were times when we could not hear the guide on our headsets during the first part. But from what we heard she was very informative. The second part of the tour was much the same only without the advantage of the headset so unless you were standing very close to the guide it was difficult to hear. But overall a very good experience...we would certainly recommend it!

The trip was one of a kind experience! The actual tour is about 4 hours and the transportation to and back from Auschwitz is around 3 hours. Our guide was Barbara, she was amazing, went us to all the monumental places of the trip and explained every part of the tour with much detail and respect to the events that happened there. I would definitely recommend her! Thanks so much!
