What people are saying about Auschwitz

Tour that makes you think about human malice ... We were lucky enough to have an exceptional guide. FRANCESCO He explained everything perfectly, putting his whole heart into it. He was thorough, accurate and available to answer any questions.

Well organised tour. Very good host (Martin) and tour guide at the camps. A sad day but something that has to be done.

In spite of bad weather, the excursion went exactly according to the plan and everything was genuienly interesting.

Very nice visit, we can't imagine the ordeal and inhuman conditions of all these people! Horror at its height

Great tour! A must when visiting Krakow. I have nothing bad to say about the tour, guide was very good.
