A Recent Review of this tour

Marta is wonderful! Not only is she attentive and knowledgable, she's super fun and is a riot! On the drive to Auschwitz she pointed out things along the way and provided information. She answered all out questions, even our silly ones like what language American movies play in and how subtitles on TV work! Do not skip the the roadside sausage grill on the way to the salt mine. The sausage was amazing as were the pickles you fish out of a wooden bucket yourself. The spot is lovely!
