Overall, my partner and I were absolutely delighted with this tour and the experience that they provided us. If visiting Krakow, I believe no visit would be complete without seeing Auschwitz. Make no mistake, this is not an enjoyable visit but a visit that we all are obliged to make in memory of what was committed against fellow human beings. Our hotel pick-up arrived on time to the minute and we were greeted by Paul,our driver, who was friendly, very professional and who possesses an excellent sense of humour. The vehicle that was to carry us throughout the day was a modern and clean Mercedes-Benz mini-bus. The tour of Auschwitz-Birkenau was informative and our tour guide herself very knowledgable and thanks to headsets and a radio we had no difficulty in listening throughout the entire tour. Afterwards, we drove to the salt-mines and had a fantastic experience with an equally fantastic tour-guide. Overall, I could not recommend this experience enough and I am very grateful to the operator for giving us such an enjoyable experience
I had booked this Tour before I had arrived in Krakow. It was easy and simple to get the booking completed. I recieved email and Texts from the Company making me aware when and where I was getting picked up which made everything run smoothly. Driver explained everything that was going on and what the plans where for the day. The 2 tour guides we had at both sites where very good and explained indepth. Any questions that where asked where happily answered. The lunch that was supplied was filling and plentiful. The Tour for me was anout 10 hours in total. From about 8am to 6pm drop off at the centre of Krakow. Although you can get to both places yourself I found it alot easier with this Tour and less hassle.
Brilliant - a must see - and very well organised door to door transport! Good communication from the tour organisers.
This is a trip not to be missed. We booked the tour of Auschwitz, Birkenau and Wieliczka from the UK and read several reviews of previous tours. Although we knew that it was going to be a long day, the tour was so engrossing, moving and well organised that it was hard to believe that it lasted 12 hours. On the coach journey to Auschwitz from Krakow a video of the liberation of the camp gave a graphic reminder and set the emotional tone for the visit to the two camps. The tour driver/guide was excellent throughout the day and provided detailed explanation and descriptions of the camps and answered questions. As this was mid-January, the queues were not long and the places relatively uncrowded. However, this being January it was worth being prepared for being out in the open for much of the time and for a lot of walking - warm clothes were essential. The salt mine visit provided a welcome contrast at the end of the day. Lots of steps down and then a waking tour through the passages and hollowed out chambers. It was well guided by a humorous member of the mine staff. And it was warmer underground than outside! We had visited a bakery in Krakow to get breakfast to take with us before being picked up from outside our apartment at 7.45am The packed lunch was fine and there were opportunities to grab a coffee during the breaks. Thank you to our guide for pacing the day well and dropping us back to our apartment at the end of the day.
