    Amazing Trip

    Wow! When I looked to book this trip there were so many to choose from. Out of all of them I picked the best one. Great coach and driver. The english speaking guide was amazing and informative. There wasnt anything he didnt know. His knowledge was outstanding. He gave my friend and I a very memorable day and one we shall never forget. Worth every penny.

    Harrowing and haunting, but needs to be seen

    I didn't relish the thought of visiting but I could not visit Krakow and not see Auschwitz/Birkenau. It's not a place you leave saying 'oh it was brilliant' but I am so glad I went. I have seen it many times on TV, and read about it, but to be there, to walk in the footsteps of the people murdered there, to see their belongings, their photos, really makes it real and makes you realise just how lucky we are. It's very moving and emotional, and you come away from it even more astounded as to how this could have happened in the first place. I don't think I will ever come to terms with the sheer scale of the atrocity. I wouldn't want my review to put anyone off going, it is so worthwhile and it gave me a feeling that in some small way I support the victims of this place and I hope they are at peace now.
