Amazing experience. Our time and pickup location had been changed the day before we were meant to go which was a bit annoying, as we had transport booked to the original pickup location. Other than that, we couldn’t fault it. The driver was lovely and very informative, and couldn’t do enough for us. Would recommend to anyone.

Great tour into a very dark page of history. This trip was intense and very emotional, knowing all the details of what took place in the death camp. Our guides for the day were very knowlegable into providing their knowledge for HOLOCAUST. I recomend this trip to everyone because we should not forget what happened there... It was one day and one activity that will stay with me for the rest of my life . That is why i visited Krakow so as to visit AUTSVITS.

Excellent value for money... This is the perfect choice if you are looking for a complete organized experience (no need to sort out tickets and transportation by yourselves as the agency will handle it). I suggest to select the option with the pick up in hotel that would make very comfy the entire day tour.
