    It was a really interesting tour. The tour guide was really knowledgeable and shared a lot of information- both pure facts and also stories. It's just so awful that this has happened to people, so we do need to be taught these things to ensure we it never happens again. The tour aspect- all was very well organised, the transport, the communication, would definitely recommend.

    The pick up was punctual and the 1st driver very nice , explaining on the city buildings and history. However our original tour did not have enough people and we were forced to re book for another tour and pay extra 😢. Or cancel the whole tour . Not very nice

    Well organized trip, timely and efficient. The tour guide wasn't the best, she would only tell the necessary and wouldn't expand as much as one would like.

    A bit commercial but worth it

    , Mar 2022
    All the tours are very good but somehow the wanting of everyone to experience it makes the experience seem a bit too commercial and rushed. I'm not saying we should think too deeply about the hanus crimes that were committed here at all. Its an experience everyone should have in their life to keep these unfortunate people alive in the history books

    The guide was brilliant - very knowledgeable. Would definitely recommend booking a tour. Every bit of the tour was interesting, especially the snippets the guide shared of the lives of survivors Disappointed that we were not picked up from the hotel and were just given a street name as a meeting point, after pick up driver then drove past bottom of the street where our hotel was!

    The experience and the tour was more heart wrenching and painful. But its a history that should be known. The guide was so nice and explained the terrors of the place very well. Only problem was with the pickup.. would be helpful if you could provide the bus number or something before the pick up. theres a lot of buses at the same time and it’s confusing

    The story where people and even pregnant women had to completely undress prior to get shooted in the yard . It is very below the dignity of the person.
