Michal made our tour absolutely perfect! He arrived on time right outside our hotels doors and couldn’t do enough for us, he was so polite and helpful. When we arrived we had to queue for the tickets but Michal sorted all this out for us so the tour got through together and without waiting! Our tour guide (Magda) was so passionate and really made the experience for us, she was so so knowledgeable and we honestly couldn’t have had a better tour guide. Michal was waiting for us after our tour and although there was so much traffic, he still dropped us at our hotels front door which is really appreciated. If any one’s having doubts on which tour to book - this is the one!!!! Couldn’t recommend it enough - thank you all for the tour

I would recommend this to anyone. Not only was the experience of visiting Auschwitz-Birkenau moving and insightful, but the tour guide also took it to another level. The stories are beyond words, but it's told in an impactful and honest way. A must for anyone visiting the region.

Great transport and such a great guide. We had a very interesting and comfortable experience, everyone should visit Auschwitz at least once in their lives. History is so important.

The lady that took us around was brill. Very passionate about its history. The whole experience was just so sad but very humbling.

Michal was awesome - very attentive to our needs as a group. I really appreciated his guidance 'telling us what to expect'.
