It was really good. They picked me up at 5:20 am to take me to the train station. The train left just before 6:00 am. Some one picked me up at the train station of Krakow, and showed me a little bit of the city before we met the rest of the group to go to Auschwitz. We took a bus ride that lasted about one and a half hours. Once there, we took a tour of two concentration camps for three hours and a half. We had a 15 minute break to grab something for lunch or check the souvenirs store. The tour didn’t include a visit to the museum. Can’t take big purses or backpacks into Auschwitz. We rode back on the bus and got back to Krakow about 5:00 pm. By then, it was dark and some places were already closed. We got to walk around the city, and see from the outside different places and churches. We got to check the Christmas market too. The tour ended at 10:00 pm at the train station. Back in Warsaw about 12:30 am. The last tour guide was very knowledgeable of the history of Poland.

The local reception staff is very responsible. They contacted us the day before to get the departure time and took the train to Krakow. The local guide also picked us up at the railway station and sent us back to Warsaw after the trip.
