Can't recommend Phil highly enough. We booked a tour of Auschwitz/Birkenhau and Phil was a font of knowledge, giving us time and space to absorb our surroundings as well as adding detailed and insightful information throughout the day.
Picked us up promptly, provided lunch on the day and organised our airport transfers - all on time and hassle free.

Just got back from a tour to Auschwitz and Birkenau with Krakow Tours. The visit itself was poignant and moving, I imagine it will stay with me forever. Following our independent visit to Auschwitz, we rejoined Phil and continued to Birkenau, where he came into his own. Phil was so informative but relaxed, we found out so much more than perhaps we would have in a bigger group. To say the visit was enjoyable would perhaps not be the correct choice of words but the service we received from start to finish was second to none.

There is plenty of options for tours around krakow, horse drawn carriages, free walking tours, boat tours, etc on recommendation we took what looks like a golf buggy you will find them all around the square. There is a few options you can take we opted for a tour of main square & the Jewish quarter. It cost €50 for 2 & lasted about an hour our driver Jerry was so informative & gave us plenty of tips along the way about pubs / restaurant etc, this was a brilliant way to see the city as the buggies are small they can zip in & out of place easily so you probably get to see more, I would highly recommend this type of tour & it's probably a good idea to do this as soon as you can on your arrival as you get familiar with the city & get your bearings,

Booked airport transfers and a tour of Auschwitz/Birkenau with Phil. Transfers were great. Tour was amazing. Phil is very knowledgeable not only about the Auschwitz/Birkenau site and its history but about the entire region. I learned so much on this tour.
One member of our group is celiac and he went above and beyond to provide a gluten free lunch (she is still talking about that chocolate bar Phil....) and pointed out a great restaurant with a gluten free menu near our hotel. Overall an outstanding experience.

Booked our tour to Auschwitz with Phil Clarke. What a great, knowledgeable guide. Phil takes small groups. There were only four in our group. We were picked up from our hotel at 7am and dropped back at approx. 2pm. The drive to camps takes approx. 1 hour and during this time we watched a video of the liberation of the camps. Phil escorted us into the camp and recommended parts of the museum to see. We spent two hours on our own visiting all the exhibitions before meeting up with Phil again and travelling to Birkenau,. We walked the camp with Phil and we learned so much. We have taken many guided tours and they are often scripted and rushed but Phil was excellent. His passion for history was very obvious. We cannot recommended him enough. Thanks Phil.
