Fantastic guide, Katerina, for our trip to Auschwitz-Birkenau. She spoke swedish fluenty and guided us through the horror with a very pleasant voice, she emphasized the human perspective of it all and showed a lot of respect. She also handled a situation on our minibus travelling there with great calm. Thank you Katerina and we really can recommend Turpol.

We went on a day tour to Auschwitz booked with Turpol. The organisation was perfect, easy to correspond with them, the driver was on exact time to pick up. A lunch sandwich was included but I would recommend to bring something to eat because it was only white bread with cheese.
We had a guide in english but she was unfortunately very difficult to listen to as she was not showing any engagement at all and spoke like she read something out of a book without separating sentences.

We signed up for this tour online and were picked up at our hotel, just as scheduled. The driver was friendly and knowledgeable, the van clean. So much for pleasantries.

The tour of the Auschwitz complex was an emotional one, with many visitors wiping away tears. The exhibits pretty clearly detailed the depths of inhumanity that the final solution represented. But Auschwitz itself, a concentration camp, paled in comparison to Auschwitz II – Birkenau, a death camp, built solely for the purpose of industrial-scale murder. The row upon row of barracks, or their surviving stone foundations, gave a sense of the vast scope of the enterprise.

It’s taken me over a month to put into words my experiences while visiting the site. Unlike other tourist venues, there were no loud crowds of people bantering, just awed silence as people left the exhibits. Auschwitz was sobering, depressing, and thought-provoking, but a must-see to put the 20th century in context.

Thanks to Poltur for the excellent, professional conduct of this tour.

We joined Poltours trip to Auschwitz today. Really a great, though scaring experience. Katarina, our guide, who spoke fluent swedish, was excellent. I can recommend Poltur 100%. Don't go for the cheaper alternatives offered by local trip providers. Poltur is very professional and great value for money.

This is a must-see when visiting Kraków. The tour was really good, we were guided in Swedish and our guide Katerina (probably wrongly spelled, sorry) was amazing. I can highly recommend this tour!

Our guide picked us up by the hotel with a small bus. On the way to Aushwitz we watch a move on screen in the bus so we had the basic story. Our guide was well prepared and competent. I recommend it, must see.

Me and my mum travelled here in January 2017 for my 30th birthday. The coach picked us up at 8.30 and we set off we got to camp 1 about 10. There we where given headsets and a battery pack to hear the guide. We then started walking through where the guide would give us lots of information. The guide was amazing I would definitely advise having a guide to explain what you are seeing and so the reality Of what your witnessing sinks in. The day we choose to visit was -12 it was freezing and I'm glad we visiting on that day as you can have some kind of idea what the victims went through. After half a day at camp 1 looking at the rooms gas chambers etc we stopped for dinner then drove to camp 2. When we go there the size of the place was overwhelming. It was as far as the eye can see for 360 degrees. Again the guide took us round and gave us lots of information. This is a must see for anyone going to Poland!!

We used TURPOL for our tour to Aushwitz and needed a Swedish speaking guide, wich they had. The guide was excellent, the bus that picked us up was spot on time and they both picked us up and left us at our hotel. For a small fee, they fix a lunch bag to eat between the sights of Aushwitz 1 and Aushwitz Birkenau. We can highly recomend them!

We booked with Turpol two times for our time in Krakow, to Auschwitz and Wieliczka and we are very pleased with the result! We chose them to begin with, as we wanted a guide in Swedish for Auschwitz, and after realizing that they had tours for the salt mine as well, we were very interested. Even though we only managed to get a English tour in the mines, we are very satisfied with both trips. The drivers that picked us up were nice, and on time. The guides were also great (the Swedish one had a bit trouble with pronunciation, but it worked great anyways), and made the trips way more enjoyable!

I would recommend Turpol to anyone who wants to visit these places (they probably have more to offer as well), and I highly recommend you do so with a guide. Turpol were very quick at answering questions and reservations on email, even during weekends. Very good service overall!
