What people are saying about Wroclaw

The tour guide was very friendly and very knowledgeable. We really enjoyed the time with him and saw many things and heard stories that we would otherwise have missed. The short time in Breslau was used optimally.

Overall it was great tour, pickup on time without fuss. Obviously Auschwitz itself is very overwhelming, so at least the tour guide made it a bit easier to swallow.

A special kind of city tour, which was made interesting, worth knowing and charmingly enriched with anecdotes by the guide Kristina. Just great......

Very professional, great historian, comfortable drive to and from Worcław, very organised arrival and tour.

Adam a great tour operator/ driver. Great experience
