Excellent tour. Our driver arrived exactly on time around 0800 at our hotel pick up point despite it not being listed as a pick up point on the web site. The vehicle was almost new and very well maintained.

Six of us just over an hour later arrived at Auschwitz where our driver parked up to wait for us at the main carpark and offered helpful advice. The tour to the first part takes around 1.30 Hours. A short drive to Birkenau and the tour takes slightly less time than the first part. The english speaking guide throughout both tours was excellent and as you would expect very knowledgeable.

We arrived back at our hotel around 1.30 lunchtime so saw the full site(s) tour and had enough time in the afternoon to see more of Krakow.

One reminder, you do need to take your passport or a national identity card to gain access as the checks on the entry point are very thorough.

Our tour guide was brilliant, very knowledgeable about Auschwitz 1 and Auschwitz 2
Everything she spoke about was with passion.
My wife and I were very humbled at the scale and size of Auschwitz 2. It was hard to comprehend the horror.
We would recommend the visit.

we were picked up on the dot by Arthur our driver and guide, everything explained about the day. minibus was very clean and we saw a video on the Auschwitz camps. packed lunch was organised for us, worth having as its difficult to time the breaks. our guides were really well organised and moved us on in the queue to meet up with the museum guide. all through the tour the exhibition and areas, the explanations are delivered really respectfully. it is a must do visit. back in Krackow by 15.00hrs. highly recommended. there appears to be many companies offering trips but ours seem to have the skills to get through without the hassle and a great price. highly recommended. thank you.

Really enjoyable visit to this interesting museum. The guide was very knowledgeable and engaging. He really knew his stuff and brought the visit alive. I think this museum really lends itself to having a guide and I would really recommend this tour. Brilliant.

A group of 11 of us hired krakow direct .I couldn't reccomend them highly enough.they picked us up at the airport .lovely driver called Jacob very helpful.

We were picked up from. Hotel for austwitz birkeneau tour .vortex ( not sure of spelling ) wZ our driver.what a fantastic man.great guide full of fun and so respectful.

He also collected us for the salt mines tour which was excellent..
He then brought us to shindlers museum which was well worth doing and the guide there paulina was excellent at her job.

Unfortunately our 4 days came to an end and we had to return to airport and again had an amazing driver Tomasz
Thank you krakow direct.

The "krakow-auschwitz.com" are a good tour provider. We used them for the Auschwitz - Birkenau tour and also for airport to hotel transfers and found them reliable and good value. Defintely recommended.

The Auschwitz-Birkenau tour itself is exactly as described in most reviews, our guide was engaging and informative, the camp and museum harrowing.

An early pick up from hotel (7.55) a vw transporter van and very nice driver picked us up then 3 other couples from other hotels so this took a further 30mins then we were on our way. It was about 1hr 30 lots of tour groups there and it’s all very organised we had about 20 mins to go to the loo get a coffee before our tour started.
You can only take a small bag in max A4 size you go through metal detector and have to put bag phones etc in small tray - mini airport set up but v quick we were in a que for about 10 mins our driver with us for all of this and the giving out of head phones making sure we were with the correct guide etc.
The tour was very informative you go into the various buildings are told about every picture and items in detail.
It was really muddy and wet so wearing suitable shoes and warm clothing essential.
Really glad we did this tour it was conducted in a very sensitive manor and apart from Some people taking pics which seemed wrong to us was a very interesting must do insight into the awful things that happened and conditions .......
We went back to our van/driver after tour where he had a cheese roll and bread for us all before setting off to camp 2 about 10 mins away.
Again we had the same guide and you are entirely out side and even muddier there.
Really glad we picked this tour, driver and vehicle perfect & we were dropped back at our hotel round 3.30 pm.

We’d planned to do this tour for a long time and glad we chose this one. The driver, Dominic, picked us up from the hotel first and then the other 3 couples in a VW transporter. Plenty of room and comfortable (I’m 6’4”) and took us on the 60 minute journey to Auschwitz for the first part of the tour.

When we arrived we had 10 minutes to wait for our group start time and had chance to use the toilets (2 zloty) and read some of the inscriptions outside. We collected our headphones and receivers so that we could clearly hear what our guide was saying whilst taking in the camp. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and was able to deliver the tour at a steady pace. There are rooms left as they were during the liberation and an opportunity to see the collections of footwear, personal belongings and hair that was cut from each person to be used for clothing fibres, mattress and furniture filling. The tour lasts about 90 mins and ends in one of the gas chambers.

We had 15 mins for lunch before moving to Birkenau for the second part of the tour. There’s a restaurant and snack shop at Auschwitz and is reasonably priced.

The trip to Birkenau was about 10 mins and our guide met us there. We had a walking tour without headphones this time but we’re able to hear without any issues. The tour starts at the iconic railway arch and follows the tracks to the international memorial and the site of the 2 large gas chambers, demolished by the German forces prior to liberation. We moved along the tracks to one of the brick built barrack rooms and saw the remains of the bunks that the prisoners used before ending the tour.

We would highly recommended this tour to anyone wanting to have a steady paced, informative and respectful view of the camps.

It’s hard to say we enjoyed this given the subject. It was a fascinating and highly informative poignant trip and i would thoroughly recommend.
The tour company were 1 st class and our driver Thomas was great - professional, helpful. polite and friendly.
Our guide once there was Symon and he was amazing. very passionate about the subject and extremely knowledgeable.
We considered going ourselves but would definitely recommend you take this trip- worth every penny

Great experience, we was picked up from outside our apartment which was not listed on the pick up locations so that was good. Thomas was very friendly and explained in detail the plan for the day. We watched a video on the journey which was very informative. The tour itself was filled with lots of information, quite unbelievable what went on at those camps although sad and shocking it is well worth a visit. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and not only gave facts and figures but discussed her personal connection with the camps. It was quite windy on the day of out visit so sometimes it was quite difficult to hear her through the mic but was no fault of her own. Would definitely recommend this company and the visit.
