A must for all to see
Smaller group experience versus a bus made it feel safer (Covid) and more personal. The second part of the tour Birkenau involve lots of walking and if the sun is out it’s not. Bring an umbrella for the sun.

Once in a lifetime experience.
It was a very moving experience. Everything went fine, the driver was super fun. We were picked up from the hotel. He provided us a lunch, which was pretty cheap. During the trip, he played a documentary about the liberation. Very recommended.

The most pivotal moment in my life
The most horrifying but most important visit I’ve ever made. I’ve never FELT anything like what I felt at the concentration camp. It’s indescribable and yet, every human should have to visit to feel what humanity is capable of.

Something everyone needs to see
Jun 2021 • Friends
Obviously, this is not an uplifting tour. It is the worst of the worst of what humans are capable of. However, I felt the tour was very safe… it did not provide a very strong perspective of the camp. We were told what buildings were and what key events happened and what some of the camp processes were. General info from a high school history book. I’ve been to other tours at concentration camps and felt that each of them, especially Dachau, did a much better job of educating about what happened there and how/why it worked, with insights and explanations that can only be understood while standing in the camp. Each of these tour leaves the tourist depressed and wondering how places so evil exist, but I felt the Auschwitz tour was very safe and sanitized.

Superb tour.
Dec 2020
From start to finish this tour was outstanding. For obvious reasons it was an emotional and shocking day but a part of history that should never be forgotten.
Our tour guide was fantastic (sorry, I cannot remember her name), the way she explained everything gave us a clear understanding. I took my teenage girls with me and they didn't want to say they 'enjoyed' the trip due to the nature of Auschwitz but it certainly will stay with us for a very long time.
The communication and organisation of this company means we highly recommend them. many thanks for such an informative day.
We went in December 2019 before Covid. Posting this review late. Sorry.

It has been on my list for quite some time and I am glad and grateful I finally managed to touch those grounds and see with my own eyes what I wish that had never happened in history. We have all read books and watched so many movies, but for me this is the ultimate experience of mixture of feelings of sadness, peace and gratitude.

Really worthwhile and well organised tour
Oct 2020 • Couples
Excellent tour driver spoke fluent English and guide at Auschwitz and Birkenau very informative. Really moving as expected and walking round the sites gives you some kind of comprehension of the scale of the crimes that took place here. Bring a woolly hat though if weather expected to be cold its very exposed at Birkenau.
