I found our visit to Krakow fantastic. WST were brilliant in organising the visit and extremely helpful in accommodating changes, and doing this quickly and well. This made our experience in Krakow/Auschwitz fantastic and one that will stay with us and the students forever.
The Robert Napier School, Krakow

I wanted to mention how endlessly helpful Helen has been at every step of organising this trip. She is always ready to not only answer all my big questions but also the (very very many) little ones and always with great patience and understanding even when our school systems or my inexperience in setting up trips makes things tricky. Helen is always very keen to stress the work you all do behind the scenes to accommodate us, particularly this year in securing such a low price for so many students, and I really am appreciative of this, particularly when you have slightly extended deadlines to help us out. I am mindful of the deadlines you have to meet but sometimes I just cannot get money/ information from parents who are not, however much I chase them. Thank You. Can I also say how excellent the walking tour guides were. Both Nikolai and Tariq were extremely knowledgeable about Berlin and struck a really excellent balance between history and anecdote.
Graveney School, Berlin

The trip was part of our GCSE coursework and it really delivered everything we needed. The coach and hotel were excellent as were the excursions. Helen is always very helpful and I will be using WST again in the future.
Afon Taf High School, Krakow

Helen Hamer at WST has been really supportive, professional and helpful throughout this process. Our coach driver, Phil, was outstanding.
St Birinus School, Berlin

Thank you again for a well-supported and organised trip.
Maricourt Catholic High School, Krakow

We had a brilliant trip and everything went so well. All arrangements were exactly what I had asked for and the organisation was excellent. All paperwork was of high standard. Another great trip with WST and I will definitely be using them again.
St Aloysius College, Washington

I have wanted to organise a Krakow trip for several years. I would not have been able to do so without you. The staff at WST were particularly helpful when there were one or two ‘hitches', especially with pupils dropping out. Pupils loved Krakow as a place and gained a valuable insight into pre-war Jewish life and the Holocaust itself. The Galicia Museum was amazing in terms of the actual information but also the knowledge of the staff and their helpfulness. Our guide, Gosha, was simply fantastic. She had a mine of information about Krakow from all eras, her English was excellent and she had a real affinity with the pupils. The high spot had to be meeting the lady who survived the Holocaust at the museum. One pupil said it was a day that “I will never, ever forget as long as I live”. That for me sums up what the trip was about.
Great Torrington, Krakow

Just wanted to say thank you for all your assistance with the trip. It went very well and we were all impressed with the hotel, the guides and the organisation. I would particularly like to praise the hotel which was excellent in every respect, the staff were polite and helpful, the food was very good, the rooms were clean and well equipped and the location was ideal. I would also like to praise the guides who were very good especially Gosha who guided us around the Jewish quarter and took us to what was the ghetto. She was superb and the students really responded to her. Your support has been excellent throughout the planning of the trip which I really appreciate as this is the first time I have taken students abroad. The itinerary never failed and everything went smoothly.
Bexhill College, Krakow
