In the peak season I was able to book a trip to the Auschwitz Birkenau museum organized with the Cracow Visit office. I was a little worried if I had time because I had problems in the hotel but the van waited for me until I arrived. On site, the pilot helped everyone go through the entire airport-like entry procedure. The organizer also arranged for a transfer between Auschwitz and Birkenau. At the end I still had a delicious dinner in the museum restaurant. If the weather was good it would be really great if you can say that this place is great.

Sprawnie zorganizowana wycieczka z opieką pilota od hotelu do wejścia do muzeum. Byliśmy w międzynarodowej grupie , ale pilotka ku mojemu zaskoczeniu mówiła chyba w 4 czy pięciu językach - także każdy mógł wysłuchać wszystkich informacji organizacyjnych ze własnym języku. Przed wejściem otrzymaliśmy świetnie napisane przewodniki oraz instrukcje jak z nich korzystać niestety - do zwrotu. Myślałam, że w cenie będzie zawarty przewodnik. Mimo to oceniam całość na 5 bo i pilot i reszta grupy zjawiali się o czasie w umówionych punktach. Polecam to miejsce - każdy powinien zobaczyć przynajmniej raz.
