Piotr was our tour guide driver and was absolutely wonderful! There were 6 of us on the tour. I was very disappointed in the guide who took us through Auschwitz-Birkenau though. He seemed to rush us through the visit and wouldn’t let us take pictures in some buildings, although the other guides let their groups take them. However, it was an experience I will never forget. By the time we got to the 2 hour tour of Krakow, I was unable to walk due to leg problems. Piotr took me and my boyfriend to the end of the tour and gave us a small personal tour of old town. He went above and beyond what was expected. He was very nice, funny and knew the history of most of the buildings. I definitely recommend this tour and try to request Piotr.
Terrific tour for those that only have limited time in Warsaw. Auschwitz is a must to remember the past and Krakow to help remember the future is brighter : Great trip!
I had wanted to come to Auschwitz for years simply to pay respects to the millions who were murdered here, firstly our guide Piota was amazing, nothing was too much to ask, we upgraded our car for more comfort and we were on this tour on our own which is how we like it. When at camps 1 and 2 we joined another tour operator who was very good but I just feel as though we were rushed too much, I would have liked a bit of time on my own to ponder and reflect. in Hindsight I would have split the two tours and taken a two day tour with perhaps a night in Krakow. The full day was too much for us physically challenged people. we asked our guide if we could cut our tour of Krakow short so he arranged for us to have some time to ourselves in the City square which was nice, although we invited him along with us for the walk in the cool night air before heading back to Warsaw. I cannot say enough about Piota I hope I have spelled that correctly he was fabulous and highly recommend asking for him as your guide.
Our driver was excellent. The guide at old town Krakow was adequate--her English vocabulary was limited so that made her explanation a little difficult to follow. The educator guide at Auschwitz was excellent.
Too much to squeeze into one day. 3.5 - 4 hours driving without a rest stop from Warsaw to Krakow. The Krakow tour guide was very knowledgeable and really did a nice job showing us around the beautiful city in the time allotted. There was adequate time to get a look at the key sites, but that was all. After Krakow we had a lunch in a decent restaurant but by this time I was realizing the trip to Auschwitz was going to be too short to really take in the history. We didn't arrive at Auschwitz until late afternoon. Our drivers were a bit disorganized and wasted 30-40 minutes talking to assorted tour guides before we were actually assigned a guide and began our tour. Auschwitz was very rushed. The guide was very knowledgable but literally lost people on our tour because he was walking so fast from exhibit to exhibit. We certainly took in the history but there wasn't time to reflect on each of the sites in the camp. We got back to our hotel around 10PM and we did not stop on the drive home for a dinner or break. I would use Viator again but not suggest a day as packed as Krakow and Auschwitz from a Warsaw departure.
