I booked this tour after reading all the positive reviews and I have to say we were not disappointed. On the day of our tour we were picked up by Mark, a fabulous guide and someone who was easy to talk too and happy to answer any questions. When we arrived at Auschwitz he handed us a guide and advised us on were to go. Great advice! We explored exhibits that were empty but ones that were well worth a visit. It was great going around at our own pace and just taking everything in. After 2 hours Mark took us to Birkenau and gave us a guided tour. His knowledge was excellent and it was great to see areas of the camp that other people just passed by. These areas held great significance and Mark did an excellent job at explaining this. Once we finished Mark gave us the option of going to the Salt Mine. We hadn't booked this but as we weren't tired we decided to give it a go. On the way we received the pack lunch we had ordered. It was FANTASTIC. Enough to feed everyone in the minibus, let alone two of us. He dropped us off at the mine, made sure we were with a guide and then waited for us to come out. ( Our experience of the Salt mine, well getting out the salt mine, was not a positive one but we did enjoy the tour). We were then taken back to our hotels, and on the way we were shown parts of the ghetto wall and the sites of other concentration camps.
The highlight of our trip was definitely our guide. Mark was fantastic!
He has also helped us with our airport transfer.
A fabulous trip and I would definitely book with this company again!
