Great activity. The only bad thing that 3h to see Auschwitz is a bit short, the guide was going full blast explaining things and he himself said that he had to leave many things to tell because he did not have enough time, a shame if you are really concerned about knowing the history. You don't have time to look closely at things. So this already depends on the experience that each one seeks. If I go back I will take the 6/7 tour for sure. The driver who picked us up from the hotel and took us there in a van, great. Overall very good experience. It was difficult for them to find a guide in Spanish for the tour because there are not too many, and they tried hard to get it and offer us what we had booked.

The best: the museum´s guide, despite of the chaos there with the groups and rows. The worst: the transport. Despite of high number of Covid cases, no mandatory mask inside the car. We were 8 people and the driver, and only myself and my friend was wearing mask during the one-hour trip.
