Great experience! A few days before we were contacted via SMS to organize the meeting in detail. The driver was super friendly and helpful. During the trip he entertained us with some curiosities about the territory and the Polish language. Upon arrival at Auschwitz he did not limit himself to transport, but accompanied us through the security checks and explained where and how the guided tours began. Highly recommended service :)

Really great excursion if you want to discover Poland! The driver was ADORABLE, spoke excellent English and explained each step to us in detail. We loved the whole excursion. Bonus: this was a private tour! Thank you very much to Kamil for his kindness and adaptation ❤️
