Lasting trip.

Had a very friendly driver, who was always ready. Upon arriving at Auschwitz, however, the driver said that they did not know that we were coming. It was solved quickly, so apparently no problem! Definitely worth planning the trip! Furthermore, the driver also made the effort to drop us off at home, so very friendly!

A tour that everyone should do. Truly thought provoking.

A very educational tour. Seeing it in films or reading about it in books doesn't do it justice. To visit and see it in real life is truly thought provoking.The guide was very respectful and informative. The tour wasn't rushed we passed through the camps at a steady pace. Would highly recommend this tour.
