Not so smooth beginning
The tour didnt start smoothly. The day before the booked tour the operator contacted us if it is ok to come to a pickup point, although pickup from the hotel is promised. Which was fine for us, the point was just around the corner and I thought this makes pick ups quicker. There were groups waiting at the pickup point. Nobody was sure which car to look for, until the driver or guide from each car started asking names of their group. Logo of the opetator on the car or a big card held by the driver will help. Then one couple was late. Seemed like the pickup time informed to them was different from what the driver got.
After everyone was collected, it got better. The guide at Auschwitz was good and I am glad I visited it. The tour itself was rushed, 5 min. Break for toilet etc., but this probably has to do with the visiting time slot of the museum and large number of visitors.

Thank you for sharing with us your opinion about the tour, and the ideas on how to make the service more effective and the pickups fluent. As your apartments were just around the corner from the pick up spot, where the Clients without the ‘hotel pick up option’ meet, we asked you if you could meet us there. To make it easy for you, we attached the link with directions just in case. Some apartments in Krakow don’t have a space in the front where we can easily and safely stop our vehicle for the Clients pickup. This is rather a very rare case when we ask our Clients to meet us somewhere else. We really avoid situations where we ask the Clients to come up a little bit for the pickup. But sometimes this is the only option for the pickup. In these very rare cases, when it is no more than about 1 - 2 minutes distance on foot, we would either ring or email you asking if you can meet us around the corner for the pick up. If we notice that our Clients would have any problems with meeting us anywhere else than their hotel or apartment and we are we are not able to drive there, then we send a member of your staff to walk up, meet you there and escort you to the location where the minibus or minivan is parked. When booking our Auschwitz tour by minibus, we kindly ask our future Clients for understanding especially in some cases where the hotels are located in the no traffic zones, or no minibus traffic zones. But we are normally able to pick up directly from the 98% of all accommodations in the Krakow city center. We apologize for the stressful beginning of the day. I am glad you have had a good experience with the rest of the tour.

Highly recommended. Picked us up promptly from hotel and looked after us for the rest of the day. From the journey to checking us in , transporting us from each camp .
As we had booked our own tickets at Auschwitz we had a few minor problems with tickets and our driver sorted this all out for us , which was above and beyond . Great value for money .
Would use again or recommend to anyone visiting.

Not my favorite tour
When I saw “duration: 7 hours” on TripAdvisor, I thought that meant seven hours on site. Instead, we spent about 4 hours actually doing the tour. The rest was driving, waiting in line, or on a 45 minute bathroom/breakfast break.

Regardless, the tour was good. The drivers were punctual and good drivers. The tour guide was intelligent and friendly.

Thank you for reviewing our tour. We are happy to learn that you were satisfied with our drivers and the tour guide in Auschwitz. The 7 hours refers to the whole tour duration, not just one of its components. It is explicitly stated in the content of the offer that the guided tour in Auschwitz takes between 3h - 3.5h. The whole tour duration (from the pickup from the hotel till the drop off back in Krakow) which is about 7h is the most significant information for our guests, which they clearly see when they choose our offer. We consulted the Tripadvisor team about it, and they agree that it stated as clearly as it can be. We understand that you feel dissapointed, as you expected the actual tour of the Camps to last for 7 hours, but in fact we do not know how we could improve the Auschwitz tour description on the TripAdvisor. For the Clients interested in longer lasting tours we advise to contact us directly, as we also organize the visits of the Auschwitz Birkenau Museum, which are called the study tours. They are 6 or even 8 hours long and can be either private or conducted in a group. Thank you for using our services and feel welcome to return to Krakow soon!

A must when in Krakow
Feb 2020
Visiting Auschwitz is a must for anyone going to Krakow. In this whole day tour we had the opportunity to see first hand what a horrifying place this was and learned about the incredible cruelty that took place here. I was astonished at the size of the camp and looking at personal items of those murdered was an emotional experience.This should be on everyone's bucket list because the only way we can prevent this horror from happening again is to learn from the past, specially now that antisemitism is rearing its ugly head once more. Never again!

This tour was amazing from start to finish. Told the day before (around 5pm) when pick up would be. We were picked up outside where we were staying at 09.20am promptly. Monica our driver was lovey, very friendly and helpful! We were collected in a clean mini van, aboard were ourselves and another two couples, we also collected our tour guide Zigi.
We arrived at Auschwitz approx 11.10 and had time to look around, use facilities or have something to eat. We then joined others in our group, a total of around 15-20. Our tour began at 11.30 with Zigi as our tour guise, he was EXCELLENT! I even watched others from other tours stop and listen to him as opposed to their own guide. You could see how much passion he had even after doing it for so many years, he still felt the depth of what went on in such an awful place.
We returned to krakow approx 16.20 so overall the day was very well timed!
We thoroughly enjoyed our day and would highly recommend!
