A rich visit thanks to the many testimonies that our guide shared with us. Beyond the very well explained historical facts, this made this visit even more human. Just a small disappointment with the speed of the visit.

Guide was excellent..so willing and patient to answer any questions..obviously well educated..bus driver insured all the time everyone was aboard and very patient

A really well-organised trip, from the transport to the guide who took us through Auschwitz and Birkenau.

It is very well organized. The guide was really nice and her explanations were very good.

Odlično voden izlet, ki vas popelje v mračno zgodovino! Priporočam!
