What people are saying about Memorial and Museum Auschwitz-Birkenau

Everything was very well organized from picking you up at the hotel to returning. The tours in Auschwitz were well thought out. The guide was very knowledgeable; one could see that he had absolutely mastered the historical subject matter. In addition, the guide managed to captivate his listeners in his sympathetic way. I recommend planning and carrying out a visit to Auschwitz with GetYourGuide! Uwe Niklas

At first I was skeptical that everything would work out as agreed. In addition, our booked hotel had closed. So I thought the trip would go haywire. But everything had been organized and rescheduled for us. Can only recommend. Completely content.

We were picked up in time at our desired point, the tour guide was amazing, speaking very good English. The tours in both Auschwitz and Birkenau were exceptional, would highly recommend this outing.

Everybody was helpful, everything was orderly; impressed with all the tour guides - clock work! Kind driver and guide.

Guide (Martin) & the driver were great. Informative, friendly Auschwitz guide. Highly recommended *****
