Organised, courteous, friendly, helpful and very well presented - from hotel pick-up to tour guides, it was excellent. I say this as someone who is more of an explorer than a tourist and reluctantly goes on organised tours.

Excellent day trip, our tour guide was very informative and helpful throughout the whole day. It was a long day from 0900 to 1900 hours but worth it. The camps were upsetting & what you would expect, grim, but so glad we went, made us realise just what freedom we have

Exhausting but essential visit to the mass murder sites. Must never be forgotten - you’ll never understand the magnitude of terror unless you visit! Humbling and devastating. Second half in the salt mines was incredible. Amazing history and sculpturing of vast salt chambers.
