Picked up on time from our apartment and taken between camps by the driver. Driver was very helpful and our English speaking guide was both extremely informative and respectful on what was a very sensitive and solemn tour.
My friend & I booked the Auschwitz- Birkenau tour for last weekend, all pre booking prior to travel.
Everything was excellent, communication prior to trip, collection/ drop off times, fab driver & tour guide, great value for money.
Highly recommend this tour guide.
A must visit place to go. The tour was so insightful and interesting and really made us appreciate what had actually happened. I would definitely recommend it to anyone that has the time to visit here.

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.
