From the minute we were collected from our hotel we were minded so well. Our bus driver was really lovely. The video we saw on Auschwitz and Birkenau was so moving. Our guide there was informative, sensitive and knowledgeable. The salt mines were very interesting and again, our guide was very informative and funny too. We also got a lovely lunch at Birkenau included in the price which was healthy, tasty and most welcome. There was lots of walking, but we are up for that. These trips have been on my list for quite some time and I am so glad that I have experienced them now. I highly recommend GetYourGuide. Thank you so much. Margaret, Co. Kildare, Ireland
