    The visit was everything we hoped and expected it would be - interesting, sobering and at times extremely harrowing. Our guide (Monika) was knowledgeable; she kept us moving along but also recognised there were times when we just wanted to stop and contemplate what we were seeing and imagining. We were picked up / returned promptly to our hotel by Maurice, our driver. Some helpful tips: there’s no shade at Birkenau - take a hat / parasol. The surface is a bit uneven in places - wear flat shoes or sandals. There are a few stairs to negotiate in the main camp. All in all, this trip was excellent!

    Very well organized excursion through Legendary Krakow (via GYG). We were picked up on time at our hotel by driver Milo, super friendly and drove neatly. He took us to Auschwitz and put us in touch with our fantastic guide who spoke great English. Tour was comprehensive and information. We were also lucky that it wasn't crowded, so we didn't feel rushed and we weren't trapped with other groups. Then we were driven to the immense Birkenau and we were fairly alone with our guide. Very impressive experience.
