What people are saying about Auschwitz Main Entrance Gate

Our tour guide, was well informed from the moment she picked us up at 0630 until or return to Krackow she continually provided interesting facts and stories of not just Auschwitz, but Krakow as well. She explained things in such detail, that only someone who has studied the material would respect. The tour through Auschwitz was more of a walking memorial to the innocent souls who perished in this place. I would highly recommend her to anyone who wants visit this place and seriously feel the pain and sufferring through her words, you won't be disappointed. 5 stars!!

This tour was very important to us and so we decided to book a "private tour". As it turned out, it was an absolute hit. Alicja made this day a special one. Everything was perfectly organized! From the pick-up, the trip to Auschwitz, the organization of our guide and the subsequent return trip (including a coffee break with typical local pastries). In addition, Alicja still has a lot of "knowledge" and thus we were able to start very well prepared. Highly Recommended!

Much love to our driver Bart(?) He was so kind and really took care of us. The tour itself was as you'd imagine, unsettling and upsetting but probably something we should all take the time to experience just once in our life time.

Experience of a lifetime that everyone should live....it's a must whenever someone comes to Poland.

Amazing. Perfect communication, friendly, informational, and very kind.
