Definitely 5 stars. Our tour guide in Auschwitz and Birkenau was very knowledgeable and engaging. Obviously it was an incredibly difficult experience but I think it’s one that everyone should have. The museum itself was very well done - each exhibit was thought provoking and impactful.

Real eye opener of the pure mass of people that died. It’s important to understand what people went through in these time to make us realise how lucky we really are. Our driver also very kindly dropped us to the airport so we could Catch our flight in time.

Pick up point detailed and easy to find. Pick up was prompt and van comfortable. Fully informed at arrival to Auschwitz I of the plan and tickets given. Ushered through decontamination and security and met our guide. She was very informative and easy to follow. Then break and back on van 5mins drive to Birkenau. Again same guide as before and very knowledgeable. Plenty of times to stop and reflect and also take photos if wanted. Then van back to krakow old town. Excellent communication from beginning to end. Highly recommended guided tour for 1st visit.
