Overall experience: 9/10. The service was amazing: Ella (our English tour guide) was very helpful and funny; the whole trip went very well and we learned so many things about the concentration camps thanks to the lovely and enthusiastic tour guides. Overall there was nothing to complain about the trip, minus 1 because of the duration for lunch break was quite short.

We had an amazing tour today. The guide at Auschwitz and Birkenau was brilliant. Very knowledgeable and interesting. The experience wouldn’t have been the same without her. The art exhibition was also very good and touching. Would definitely recommend.

Excellent tour guide! Top class! Kamil Rozanski… very passionate about his job and very knowledgeable. Have done this tour before, but Kamil was a super guide. Would highly recommend. Thank you.

Tour Guide at Auschwitz and Birkenau was fantastic and very informative. Think her name was Sylvie or Sylvia. Never felt that she was rushing us and always took the time to answer any questions.

Great tour which really opens your eyes to the atrocities that took place. Very professionally run excursion
