The tour was outstanding, really thorough and educational, and the staff couldn’t have been more helpful and welcoming. The bus journey was pleasant and the staff ensured that we were always happy and comfortable, giving us breaks to get food etc and even giving us the option to have a lunch readily prepared for the trip. Couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Would definitely recommend.

Amazing and long-lasting experience made worth it by our driver who picked us up on time and kept us informed of traffic and times as well as handing us over to our tour guide who provided lots of different perceptions and was incredibly kind and knowledgeable, providing us time to ask questions and seemed generally interested in each and every one of us. Couldn’t recommend this company enough, definitely choose these people for a memorable and thought provoking trip in Krakow!

The transport from the city centre came on time and it was very comfortable/warm! Guided tour of camps very interesting, be prepared for very cold weather and snow im winter time - take appropriate layers of clothing and boots. You'll have to walk more in the second camp. Low mobility people do not recommend. Overall very good experience!
