I came to Poland for the UN climate meeting in Katowice about 40 minutes from Auschwitz. I wanted to set up a tour on the day the UN climate meeting was closed. The driver was fine and safe, picking me up on time but when we arrived at Auschwitz, we had to wait an hour and 15 minutes for the rest of the group to come from Kraków. The driver of that group was less than kind… Almost cold it was confusing as to what we’re supposed to do. That was disappointing.

Our tour guide was OK but rather impersonal compared to other tours I’ve been on. The tour switches from Auschwitz and headsets to hear the tour guide to Birkenau (just a couple miles away but requires a bus ride over). It was raining and while the tour guide was sensitive to the weather, I could not hear her most the time and she did not take her time to be sure the group was assembled each time she move forward. I eventually lost the group so I walked around myself for the rest of the tour.

This “premium“ tour was not premium. I suggest going with another tour group in the future.Nonetheless, Auschwitz Birkenau is a must see, extremely moving and sadly toorelevant to what’s going on today across the world to miss.
