Excellent experience, driver was brilliant and waited for us the whole time we were walking around Auschwitz. Tour was very sad (to be expected), but guide was very good at explaining things as we went round.
I booked this tour for my father and myself, as it was a place we had both wanted to visit. From the moment we were picked up by Pietroch our driver , to the moment he dropped us back, the tour was of a high quality. Pietroch was happy to answer all of our questions about Polish life, as well as pointing things out to us on our journey to Auschwitz. Our tour guide Kate, was most informative, and her narrative was easy to follow, and the headphones made life so much easier for my father. What was at times, a harrowing visit, was managed with huge sensitivity and respect. I would highly recommend this tour with this company.
We paid for a private xfer. We were offered 5.30am or 12.30pm. 5.30am is an unacceptable choice. We were picked up at 12.55 and hence the tour of Auschwitz-Birkenau II was in the dark. We could not see properly and consequently lost our guide. We were very angry and disappointed about that. Pick up time should have been 9am. Also Auschwitz I was too crowded. The tour guide was excellent but the timing terrible.
Everything went to plan, the driver was very helpful and could not have done a better job. The day although slightly rushed as there are so many people visiting was excellent. I could go again as there is more to see. Glad I made the effort. Worth going 100%
We had a well organised trip, Guide was waiting for us in reception and explained every detail of the days event before taking us in to Auschwicz, where we were met by our well informed guid, Great day and very informative, Well worth the money
Having been on a tour of a concentration camp near Berlin, i was excited to see this one as i am very interested in this history. I was unfortunately disappointed as the Camp near Berlin was a lot more detailed, showed many more actual things (like actual prisoners clothes and the various stars and other shapes etc, along with the actual gas chambers and crematoriums) and as a result conveyed the horror of the time in such a way as to make you actually feel it. The guide for this tours camps spoke in a very hushed and dramatic voice but again told us nothing that we didn't already know from guide books and tv. The transfer was great, very comfortable and clean, well driven and efficient. I would however recommend that you go see the camp near Berlin for a better idea of what the time was actually like.
Poor tour guide - almost ruined the experience. Also NOT A FULL DAY

Our driver was fantastic - giving us extra information along our journey. He picked us up and dropped us off at every point in the day so we never got lost. HOWEVER, the tour guide (Edytna) that took us around the camps was POOR. Her English was lacking and she was difficult to understand, she made strange facial expressions regularly which were offputting and difficult to ignore. She also ran around the tour much too quickly, even after other people in our group complained and asked her to slow down. You didn't get any time to top and take in the harrowing items you were walking past and she gave no extra information that you couldn't have just read from the signs at your own pace. She also LAUGHED when talking about all the people who died which I thought was HIGHLY INAPPROPRIATE. Overall I think getting a transfer there is a good idea but I wish we would have either had a different guide or simply walked around ourselves. ALSO this tour is NOT a full day - you have 1h15 at Auschwitz and 30mins at Birkenhau - NOT long enough at all!!!!!
