The Female Guide is absolutely amazing. Hard to hear the guide in Birkennau without headphones. Total rain all day.

The place deserves to be visited. Driving is ok. I would have preferred to pause a little longer to see and read everything, but I understand that time is what it is. Touching

Amazing experience. Trip was very well organised and put together. Hosts are super friendly and helpful. Transportation was clean and comfortable. Our guide was always waiting for us after each tour and even gave us a polish lesson, he was brilliant.
