We come from Scotland and my partner and i always wanted to visit the camps in Auschwitz. We were picked up and dropped off no problem, we had an English speaking driver and tour guide and had the most amazing and interesting trip ever. Would highly recommend this experience, nothing can compare to it, wear comfortable walking shoes and have a great time!

Our day began perfect. The driver who picked us, Tony, was very pleasant and amused. The trip to Auschwitz was about 1 hour and 15 minutes. There we met our guide Anna, that was very informative and very knowledgeable about Auschwitz-Birkenau history. Overall, it was a trip that you must take ones in your life.
