Due to Polish government decision to close all museums and cultural centres our tour was cancelled. However after 3 emails we have not been reimbursed. Do not book with this group unless you are ok about losing money in circumstances outside your control. Extremely disappointed.
Dear Jen Your money will be refund, please be patient. We will make refunds after dates of travel. I do not understand your position in this hard times for everyone. I would like to ask you to delete this review because it is a not fair to atack my good opinion. All the best Damian
PS. Dear Jen I have checked that your refund was already made before your review for next time please double check your email.
It feels good to have been there and seen all the horrible history on one of it's actual places. The guide could have been a tint bit better at English but all in all very good. Make sure to have warm clothes and shoes if you are there in winter.
Thank you very much for using our service and your feedback. I would like to explain that only Auschwitz Museum can take responsibility for quality of guide service. I hope that you enjoyed your tour. All the best Damian
From the private transfer to the museum itself was lovely. The driver is fab and looks after you!
The museum and tour is very informative.
Although sad and upsetting tour it was a honour to go and see it.
Easy operator, we booked last minute for a private van to and from Auschwitz and they provided quickly. Driver was pleasant And polite. The actual tour was a bit abbreviated but might have been so to our late morning pick up
Hard to rate a tour where the subject is so horrid. You must go, but you wish that the events had never happened. Saying that, the tour was excellently delivered by the museum tour operator, providing fact after fact about the events that took place here.
Everyone should go on this tour, and everyone should reflect on the events here.
Our driver arrived on time and was extremely polite and professional. He showed us a few sights as we left krakow. Once at the site he showed us to our group and showed us where to meet. Extremely professional and such a lovely way to do the tour. Arriving and leaving in a car rather than bus. Would recommend private transfer always.
Very interesting and informative tour which is breathtaking for all the wrong reasons at times. A must visit and I'd definitely recommend this tour.
5* for Damien. Private shuttle and an informative chat with Damien (in perfect English) on the way there (and we all slept most of the way back as this tour is tiring in terms of walking but more in an emotional sense).
Excellent driver, very smooth and competent. Took us to join the tour group and made sure we knew what we were doing and where to go. Unfortunately the tour guide was not the best, although she was knowledgeable she had a droning voice and was difficult to understand. However, that being said, the whole experience was very good and well organised.
Thank you for your feedback and using our service. It is sad to hear that tour guide from Auschwitz was not enough good. Unfortunately we do not have any influence on that. I hope to meet you again in Krakow. All the best Damian
