Paul exceeded our expectations of this trip although the experience was of sorrow with what happened at Auschwitz Paul was very informative and we certainly learnt alot with the information he gave us about Auschwitz and Kraków. Paul was very friendly and made us feel at ease as soon as he collected us we were made to feel like VIPs, he was very friendly and respectful and the vehicle was very smart, clean and safe.
It's really hard even writing this review. I knew about the events that took place here before going but I had no idea of the actual scale of the place. I would recommend 2 days as birkenau is a massive site. It is worth the visit but be prepared as its extremely hard to visit. I'm a relatively big guy and even I cried walking round at the horrors that took place here.
We were greeted at the airport by our driver, who was polite and helpful. He helped us with our suitcases. He dropped us right outside our hotel. We received an email confirming pickup time from the hotel so we didn't have to contact anyone. Everything was smooth and without any problems.
It was on time and comfortable. The driver was extremely friendly and spoke great English. He got us there safely and gave us enough time to visit both camps. It was quick and enjoyable and still allow me enough time to see the city during the day.
Its about 1 hour 20 mins from the old town in Krakow. Our driver was great and very knowledgeable about the history of Krakow and the camps, which helps on the journey. The guide was great also, taking time to inform and answer questions.
