Amazing history and guide
On this trip to Auschwitz 1 & Birkenau we left early in the morning with a minibus, and we were only 8 people. That is so much better, cuz u get enough space and room, and you get a better contact with the guide as well. It was like a class of history in school. The guide guided us trough Auschwitz and told us stories about the different blocks (I) during the tour, while we were wearing headphones and a transmitter so we could take photos and look around while she were telling us stories. Amazing at the Birkenau as well. Very confident, huge experience, patient and a excellent guide I recommend to others. Im so happy I paid a bit more than the other companies, to avoid the crowd, have a smaller group and a well-speaking english guide who was patience during the tour. Highly recommend this!
Auschwitz-Birkenau Small-Group Guided Tour from Krakow
Brisk Pace, Sadness Prevails
This was a comprehensive tour of Auschwitz I and Auschwitz II (Birkenau). Our wonderful guide, Zsymon, kept us on a fast pace which while it could have been challenging for some, allowed us to stay separated from the tour group behind us as well as to see all there was to see at this two infamous sites. There are times that the emotion and sadness and anger at what took place grab you and make you want to just sit with head down. Our guide had personal knowledge of the sites and in-depth knowledge of the history of Poland and brought personal insight to the strange and sad history of this wonderful country. I would like to say - based on some previous reviews - that if you are not moderately fit, this is not your tour. If you use crutches or a cane, take a special tour here if offered. The terrain is flat, but you are walking on cobblestones and uneven ground. I clocked 3+ miles on this tour. So if your idea of walking is a stroll to the corner store, you will be tailing the group and not enjoying as much as if you were more capable of keeping up with others.

Little time left for lunch
Hotel pick up was confirmed day earlier by the driver and it was on time. Auschwitz and Salt Mine sites were professionally guided, educative and iteresting and fulfilled our expectations. At the beginning of the tour the driver informed us about the estimated time for lunch which was one our in a period between Auschwitz and before the Mine. Due to heavier traffic one hour reduced to 40 minutes. During that time we managed to receive only drinks for two people (we were a group of 7) and no food. The restaurant (Halit) was not at all too busy or crowded. Our two drinks came after 30 minutes of waiting! Our seats at the restaurant were arranged by the driver who allegedly informed the staff about the necessity of a quicker service due to lack of time. This is a whole day trip where you get up early and walk a lot in the open and in the cold. It was difficult to stay concentrated in the MIne with only one meal (breakfast) for the whole day. We received no apology from the restaurant but more importantly from the agency, that is the driver. The restaurant poor sevice is not their fault but the entire trip organisation is their responibility. In our opinion predicted time for lunch in this tour is not sufficient. The advice would be: bring your own food!

Disabled- Don't bother
I am disabled and was walking on crutches. The initial tour of Auschwitz I was good. At Auschwitz 2 was more rushed & the guide proceded without me and my family. If you are in a similar situation to me, then by yourself a guide book or do your research beforehand & go at your own pace. I have added a photo to show just how far the guide had gone ahead

Quite good tour
The tour was quite good overall. The time schedule was more or less what it was supposed to be. The tour guide was informative in general but after some time I felt she was repeating herself and i was not getting new information. In Birkenau (second part of the tour) we had no headphones which made things a bit more difficult but it was still ok. One remark, is about the pick-up from the hotel feature of the tour. I asked if it was possible to be picked up from my hotel and i was told it is not possible which was not a problem for me. Same thing happened with more people i guess. If you cannot offer pick up from the hotel, you should not advertise it as something definite but something possible.

Krakow Communism Deluxe Tour
Great Tour
We would definitely recommend this tour. It left quite early in the morning but this is a good thing as we got there quite early and before most of the large tour buses. We were able to get into the site quickly and through the buildings without huge queues. When we saw the amount of people behind us in big tours we were very happy we had decided to go on this early morning tour. We were happy with the pace and the information as it is a grim topic and we felt we saw and heard enough. Overall we would recommend this tour and especially the early morning is worth it.

Well worth every euro paid
Recommended! We were a team of four from different countries. Cooking class was organised very good. Arrival instructions were clearly communicated, no delays, everything well smooth - exactly as it should be when you have a team activity. Cooking class was a lot of fun, discussions, tips and tricks. We followed instructions well so pierogi turned out to be very delicious.

Wonderful Tour for such an important landmark
I want to applaud the efficiency and professionalism of the LikeaLocal Tour Guide company for my Auschwitz Birkenau Tour from Krakow, Poland. They did an amazing job with an early departure (0655), a full day of tours with knowledgeable tour guides in both Auschwitz and Birkenau, an accurate return time back to Krakow, and a documentary/movie while en route! For such a somber day, the 'like a local' made it easy and welcoming to visit. Thank you! I've attached some photos from both places so you can get a tiny glimpse of this historical place.

Auschwitz-Birkenau Guided Tour from Krakow
So worthwhile to see firsthand
Our guide was incredible. She was very knowledgeable and passionate about the atrocities that occurred. I traveled with my 14 year old daughter and it was an amazing educational experience. Let us never forget.

Well organized
The tour covers every bit possible in the available time. It is Well organized and the guide was great! Do take the tour but also do go for a day by yourself! 2 tons of human hair is too much to take in while walking and listening to the guide at the same time. You will need time to ponder... More time than you at first think you will need....

Interesting and important experience
The guide was very knowledgeable and did a good job of conveying the gravity of the situation as well as highlighting the experience of the prisoners. This is a sad but thought-provoking tour that everyone should participate in if they have the chance.

Best pub crawl in Krakow
Adam is the best leader. He knows where all the pubs are, and he's also really cool because he smokes cigarettes.
Krakow Bar & Club Crawl
Fun times!
An excellent pub crawl with free drinks and great venues! Krakow has an impressive night life. I really liked how the night started off at a more quiet venue but then things escalated to venues with a dance floor.
