Our time was nine o’clock pickup, when I booked the tour, This got moved to 12 o’clock which did not give our party time at Auschwitz - Birkenau. We did managed to get round Auschwitz. This was rushed as it was getting dark. The guide told us she was sorry but we would only get 5-10 minutes at Birkenau because it was to dark and it shuts. The whole experience was awful for what should have been a great experience turned out to be a total disaster for all our bus, Everyone felt robbed of what should have been a experience of a life time to visit.

Needed to be earlier

We booked a 9am tour but our pick up time was changed to 12. We were taken to auschwitz for a 2pm guided tour and the museum closed at 4:30 so we only had 2.5 hours there instead of 3.5 advertised. This meant we didn’t have enough time to see everything at auschwitz 1 and by the time we arrived at birkenau it was already going dark so we couldn’t see it all. The guide we had was great and tried to fit in as much as possible in the time available but we needed to have been there earlier to get the full effect. I had booked this trip for my daughter and me, I have been on this trip previously but it was my daughter’s first time. I was disappointed with the trip as I know how much more there was that my daughter didn’t get to see.

A truly educating and insightful day. Mateusz our driver was very friendly and helpful in getting us all set up for our tour. Our tour guide Sophie (Zophia) was incredible from start to finish, her knowledge was so in depth and she did so well in ensuring we really understood the horrors that occurred during the Holocaust. I would recommend this trip to anyone visiting Krakow to truly humble yourself.

Impressive site, confusing organisation
Caroline_S

The camp itself is extremely impressive and the guide on site was very good. It is pretty rushed and crowded and this is with few people due to corona. The tour company needs to pre book a slot in your name and then you receive a text saying what time pick up will be between 08-12:00. On the activity description it is clearly labelled as a 09:00 start so that was extremely frustrating to then be simply informed we would leave nearly 2 hours later, with nothing we could do about it. Very intransperent system. The pick up and driver was then perfectly fine.

Hi, Viator (TripAdvisor) voucher and website need from us to provide pick up time. From many reasons (diffrent pick up spots, aviliibity of guides in Auschwitz) It's impossible to pick evererone at 9:00 AM. Exusme for missunderstunding. Best regards Damian Fort

Everything in the experience was worth memorable! Even though I booked the experience the night before, the young driver was kind enough to contact & inform me about the pick up location, as well as for the exact arrival time. The guide was really knowledgeable as well! A not-to-be-missed experience in general by a super friendly team!

I booked this trip on a recommendation and I can see why they came so highly recommended. Fantastic from start to finish. I was picked up from outside my hotel doors at the exact time specified. We were taken in a extremely clean 10 seater to our destination. Once there we joined a slightly larger group and commenced with the tour, our guide was extremely knowledgeable and we were shown around at a leisurely pace (you do have to keep up with those in front and there are other groups behind you) but we never once felt rushed. Once our tours were over we returned to the bus and I was dropped once again at the door to my hotel.. I would not hesitate to use Viator again, fantastic service.

The tour was very well organised and we were well informed via email before hand. Our tour guide Mathew was very good and friendly. The tour was well informative. My only gripe would be to of been given some free time to of walked around and time to reflect. Would definitely recommend.

Was a very interesting and informative tour, we had an English speaking guide with a large group who set the tone very well. Auschwitz I was very sobering and thought provoking, will never forget what I saw there. Auschwitz II Birkenau was immense, going inside one of the huts was so sad and immersive with the smells still. Would recommend this tour, we had a comfortable ride there in a 8 seater minivan. Only negative was that there were members of our tour that are deaf and had made the company aware of this prior to booking yet they were not catered for, they were not even given a guide book to walk around with yet paid the same as everyone else for the guided tour.

We were informed of the pick up hour a day before (6am) and the bus driver was on time. No food allowed within Auswchitz, only water, so we left our belongings in the bus. We were back in Krakow by 1pm approximately.

This was a tour I had wanted to do for a very long time. I'm annoyed it was marred with this company's management. I arranged my ticket for a full day tour 3 weeks prior. I tried to confirm the day before and had to email and call twice however they confirmed. Day of tour we were picked up and told that we had no tickets for the tour and had to try our luck at the gate. Apparently this happens often as the owner/manager does this when there are small groups. We couldnt get on until 11.00 so waited for a few hours. Thought we would have skme secuirty with booking viator however not true. Our only positive was the driver was awesome although he was very embarrased.
