    Advised of the time pick up the day before & picked up on time. Our bus guide explained the agenda for the day & highlighted to us any points to note - toilets you should / shouldn’t use etc. The lunch was lovely. Very nice ham rolls, apple, water & a chocolate bar. You don’t get a lot of time to eat it, so have a big breakfast! We managed to have part of it at lunchtime, the rest around 3. The tour itself was heartbreaking but very informative. Our Auschwitz guide was really good. She set the tone very well & gave the right level of information as well as knowing when to say nothing & let the surroundings say it all. Given what is happening in Ukraine right now it made it all the more upsetting. People need to know what went on there not that long ago. We were lucky with the weather but if it is wet you are outside a lot, so dress accordingly.

    Everything run on time and veey efficiently. We had an excellent tour guide at the Camp - Barbara if I recall correctly - with impeccable english and beautiful voice. Packed lunch was a nice nibble to keep us goinf 2 bread rolls apple bottle of water and a chocolate covered waffle. I forgot my ID but there was no problem with just showing them my credit card at the entrance so don't panic:)

    After booking everything was outlined excellently in the text I was sent. I was given a meeting point where to get on the bus. The guide on the bus was great and knew a lot about the scenery in the way to Auchwitz. The tour itself was excellent. Had a great tour guide. 3 lunch breaks were given and getting back to the bus after the tours was easy.
