This tour is a value for money! We were transfered in the memorial sites by a mini bus, since we were a convenient group of 20. We arrived at the site punctually and didn't have to wait in the long queue (only a 5 min wait). The tour guide was excellent, she explained everything clearly and was very knowledgeable. We toured all around both the memorial sites and the exhibitions. Realy such an inclusive tour!

I really enjoyed this tour. Met some people on the bus ride there and made some new friends. The tour was excellent and gave very in depth information on both camps. The tour.guides were very educated on the subject. I encourage you to take this tour with this company. Great price too!

At the beginning, small problem with the local organizer who told me no longer possible in French, then 3 p.m. instead of 8 a.m., but after having joined via the watch your chat, they have themselves contacted the local, and finally tt returned in the order, so gd kudos to getyourguide customer service. This service reassured by their speed of reaction, again well done
