“A sobering and though-provoking experience!”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

We used Krackville Tours. Very good once we got to Auschwitz and met with our wonderful guide Anna, but the driver was quite stern and said nothing to us during transit. A bit off-putting!
The camps were chilling and emotional and Anna sensitively gave us so much of the history and suffering here....so sad, but something that must never be forgotten.

“Satisfying”
Reviewed 17 June 2014 via mobile

We chose this tour because their rate was lower than others for Auschwitz-Birkenau Camps. We left around 10:15 from their office with a minibus. During the journey, we watched a documentary about evacuation of the camps. After 80 minutes travel, we reached Auschwitz. Our guide was informative and kind. After 2 hours visit of the buildings, we gave a 15 minutes break before heading to Birkenau. Birkenau visit took around 1,5 hours. The tour took us back to main market in Krakow. Overall experience was satisfying.

“Not to be forgotten”
Reviewed 7 June 2014

This was a very moving experience and well worth the visit. Everyone needs to visit this attraction to appreciate what happened over 70 years ago. We went on this tour with Krakville Tours to Auchwitz and then to Auchwitz Birkenau. The guide was fantastic. Not very good for ones who have difficulty in walking.

“Fantastic experience with Krakville”
Reviewed 1 April 2014

On a recent weekend in Krakow, my husband and I were approached on the street by a guy selling trips to Auschwitz. We happened to be on the look out for a tour company to book our trip for the following day so Peters timing was perfect. Peter was extremely professional, has excellent english and was not too pushy so we spoke to him and managed to negotiate an excellent rate for the trip. 79 zloty each compared to 130 zloty each that our hotel was trying to charge us for the exact same trip. Anyway we decided to go for it and we were so glad.

The following morning we met our driver at one of the Krakville offices. Costs are kept down by not doing hotel pick ups, this also means you are not wasting time driving around the city collecting people from hotels. Both offices are just off the main square so are convenient no matter what side of the city you are staying in.

Our group was 24 people which was a perfect size. The bus was new, airconditioned, clean and the driver had excellent english. The tour left exactly on time. The group was looked after by the driver until we were introduced to our official Auschwitz guide, who was excellent. Tour went very smoothly.

We were so impressed with Krakville that we booked out saltmines tour and return airport transfer with them also.

I would highly recommend Krakville Tours to anyone going to Krakow. You will pay less for an extremely professional tour experience.
