Fantastic guide, Katerina, for our trip to Auschwitz-Birkenau. She spoke swedish fluenty and guided us through the horror with a very pleasant voice, she emphasized the human perspective of it all and showed a lot of respect. She also handled a situation on our minibus travelling there with great calm. Thank you Katerina and we really can recommend Turpol.

We went on a day tour to Auschwitz booked with Turpol. The organisation was perfect, easy to correspond with them, the driver was on exact time to pick up. A lunch sandwich was included but I would recommend to bring something to eat because it was only white bread with cheese. We had a guide in english but she was unfortunately very difficult to listen to as she was not showing any engagement at all and spoke like she read something out of a book without separating sentences.

We signed up for this tour online and were picked up at our hotel, just as scheduled. The driver was friendly and knowledgeable, the van clean. So much for pleasantries. The tour of the Auschwitz complex was an emotional one, with many visitors wiping away tears. The exhibits pretty clearly detailed the depths of inhumanity that the final solution represented. But Auschwitz itself, a concentration camp, paled in comparison to Auschwitz II – Birkenau, a death camp, built solely for the purpose of industrial-scale murder. The row upon row of barracks, or their surviving stone foundations, gave a sense of the vast scope of the enterprise. It’s taken me over a month to put into words my experiences while visiting the site. Unlike other tourist venues, there were no loud crowds of people bantering, just awed silence as people left the exhibits. Auschwitz was sobering, depressing, and thought-provoking, but a must-see to put the 20th century in context. Thanks to Poltur for the excellent, professional conduct of this tour.

We joined Poltours trip to Auschwitz today. Really a great, though scaring experience. Katarina, our guide, who spoke fluent swedish, was excellent. I can recommend Poltur 100%. Don't go for the cheaper alternatives offered by local trip providers. Poltur is very professional and great value for money.

This is a must-see when visiting Kraków. The tour was really good, we were guided in Swedish and our guide Katerina (probably wrongly spelled, sorry) was amazing. I can highly recommend this tour!
