Service was 1st class. Humbling experience.
The Auschwitz tour is a sobering & very informative visit that we should all try to absorb- the atrocities are extraordinary when you hear or read about them..but when you see them in the context of where they happened, it really brings it home to you.
All round excellent. Communication by email before the day concerning pick-up location and time and then by phone on the morning of the tour. Driver explained shape of the day clearly so we understood exactly what would happen. The tour of Ausschwitz Museum itself was a bit swift - I would have liked more time to read some of the information but it is extremely busy there and as a group you have to follow the flow of traffic. For a first visit and for those on a tight schedule, this is just the job!
