Timely and efficient transportation to the camps where they then set us up with a guide associated with the Auschwitz-Birkenau sites. We were helped along every step of the way and it was a very efficient process. I highly recommend using this service.

It was a very educational but at the same time very somber experience going through the gory details of the horrors brought by Nazis. Pickup was smooth and our guide was exceptionally knowledgeable. Highly recommended.

Very high quality bus pick-up at the end of the tour. Visit with a very strong emotional charge but essential to realize the human horror

This was a brilliant experience. Could not have asked for more. Pickup from hotel was smooth and on time. Highly recommended!!

A little exhausting, long walks, but sensational insights! Absolutely recommended!
