Great experience
The tour consists of a round trip Mercedes bus ride to the concentration camp. There were only 6 in our group. The tour Includes an audio guided tour of the camp which is set up by the driver. Markus was very good in coordinating everything for us. We didn’t stop for lunch on the way back so if you get hungry, make sure you bring a snack. However, there is a bistro on-site. The tour probably isn’t recommended for children. Even young teenagers who don’t appreciate or have patience. To really get a fully experience it takes a lot of reading and listening to the audio guide. This isn’t like other museums you can just walk through and get the full picture. You must listen and read to fully understand. All in all it is great! Such a dark time in history.

Great information, clean vehicle, awesome guide
Took a private tour (since we're a group of 7) from Vienna to the camp. Drive was smooth, car was VERY comfortable and clean for 7 of us - space for an 8th person up front if needed, got to watch a movie for half the drive also of some background / documentary on the camp which was a great precursor of information. Driver was also very knowledgeable and spoke perfect English. Gave us some history on the areas we passed and answered ALL of our questions that we kept bombarding the poor guy with - but it was great to have all the things we were thinking of answered. Also since it was private we were able to do everything at our own pace and make some minor tweaks as needed to have it accommodate our group.
