These museum and memorial sites are very busy. This trip was very well organised, clients avoid the queues and the personnel are excellent. If you have the time, please do this trip. Learn and let us never forget.
Auschwitz-Birkenau it’s a place that everyone should experience in order to be able to understand what truly happened. However I feel like our tour guide rushed us through the whole thing so it was hard to fully take in what happened which was really disappointing...More
Conrad our Taxi Driver was very pleasant and professional picked us up at the exact time stated. Our tour guide was very informative and came across very emotional at times.
We were given headphones at Auschwitz 1 but not at Birkenau which was a shame...More
We did the morning trip & were picked up around 9am. We had 3 other pick ups (group of 7) which meant driving around city in traffic for a while. The journey to Auschwitz took about 1hr10mins so actual tour started at 11am.

I think traveling time is about an hour to Auschwitz. During that time you watch a video made by the Russians of their liberation of the sites. Upon arrival at Auschwitz you join a larger tour of the site which takes you thorough several buildings on the 25 acre site. This is where you see the items such as hair and eyeglasses collected by the Nazis. We had a 20 minute break before our designated tour time which we spent getting something to eat as there's no lunch stop. The driver then took us to Auschwitz-Birkenau, the larger site. We walked around that site with a guided tour for at least an hour I think. As well as I can remember, travel time to Auschwitz and return is about 2 hours plus 20 minute break plus half hour or less between sites. It was a very sobering experience for me. Hope this helps.
