What people are saying about Auschwitz Main Entrance Gate

Visiting Auschwitz and Birkenau was very educational, yet depressing. Impossible not to get emotional at the horrific events that took place in these concentration camps. It’s mind blowing how much hatred can exist against people of different ethnics and religions, and how much damage this created in such a small place and short period of time. I highly recommend this tour. They were knowledgeable, kind, and gave us enough time to roam around and look at the barracks, ruins, and overall camps at our own disposition.

Ο ξεναγός μας ήταν ότι καλύτερο.ευχαριστος εξυπηρετικός και πάντα μας ρωταγε τι θέλουμε να κάνουμε..μας έβαλε μέσα μας εξήγησε ακριβώς τι πρέπει να κάνουμε και μάλιστα για να μην χάνουμε χρόνο μας πήγε πρώτα στο birkenau και μας περίμενε απέξω για να μας ξαναπάει στο Άουσβιτς..πολύ βολικό αμάξι και οδηγουσε πολύ καλά..

Our day began perfect. The driver who picked us, Tony, was very pleasant and amused. The trip to Auschwitz was about 1 hour and 15 minutes. There we met our guide Anna, that was very informative and very knowledgeable about Auschwitz-Birkenau history. Overall, it was a trip that you must take ones in your life.

I would recommend this to anyone. Not only was the experience of visiting Auschwitz-Birkenau moving and insightful, but the tour guide also took it to another level. The stories are beyond words, but it's told in an impactful and honest way. A must for anyone visiting the region.

Punctual and efficient. Very touching experience, to be done at least once in a lifetime.
