We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Central Europe. Our travel agency put an outstanding package together that met all of our needs. The accommodations they selected were fantastic and the guides and tours were exactly what we were looking for. Our travel concierge was always available to answer our questions and make recommendations and reservations.
Our pre-travel consultant recommended we take the tour of Auschwitz as part of our travel between Prague and Krakow. Not only was this beneficial from a timing perspective (it prevented us from using an entire day of our Krakow visit), but it also allows you the time to contemplate such an emotional visit while in the car rather than while you are trying to experience the beauty of Krakow.
The walking tours and excursions that were recommended and we selected were the best. We had a private guided walking tour in each city we visited (Prague, Krakow, and Budapest) and our guides were all outstanding. Having the walking tours on the first day in each city is a great way to get the lay of the land and plan your next days. The excursions we elected to include only added to the wonder of each of the cities we visited.
Be sure to inquire about the bathroom facilities. One hotel, although beautiful, had only a hand-held shower nozzle in an open tub. We made quite a mess!
Another comment to make is that the tour schedule at Auschwitz has apparently recently changed. Self-guided tours are only allowed at certain times, and although admittance is free, the tickets are timed. I recommend the self-guided tour rather than a group tour. The tour is very emotional and being allowed to go at your own pace is a definite advantage.
