It was a private tour. The driver was punctual and pick up from the hotel. The driver was very friendly, speaks English and had good conversation throughout the journey. Safe driving was important. The tour inside the castle was with audio guide and was very efficient and informative. The lunch was decent. The Walk in tour in Gdansk was so much fun with the tour guide. Overall I am happy with the trip.

This is the best way to visit Auschwitz and Krakow by far. Our driver Agnieszka was extremely helpful and kind, and the car was very comfortable. The tour itself was very informative and helps you truly understand the history of the area. Krakow is also very beautiful with many good restaurants and sites to see. I would 10/10 recommend this to anyone.
