Informative but a little rushed
Elisa_W, Dec 2023
Interesting day. Very long! Driver Dawid was brilliant! Trip round Auschwitz was very informative but felt rushed. Just walked through without chance to stop and really look. The guide was very knowledgeable. Salt mines were amazing, better pace and Justine the guide was brilliant! Think it would have been better over 2 days.
Overall lovely trip
Charlene_M, Nov 2023
Pick up was prompt and bus was clean and driver was hospitable. Guild for Aushwitz - Birkenau, was WONDERFUL, she was extremely respectful to the memory of those who have perished, very knowledgeable about the subject matter. She definitely knew her stuff. The guild at the Wielicka Salt Mine was less so. I felt rushed at every turn, she skipped exhibits and overall I didn't get the vibe she wanted to be there. She hardly gave us any ti.e in the biggest chapel and to reiterate she skipped over exhibits.
You get what you pay for which is not much

A bit rushed. Only about 15 seconds in the gas chamber. Driver never said 2 words the whole trip and drop off was 15 minutes walk from my hotel and I was freezing and soaked through from the rain by the time I got home.

Strachan_C, Jun 2022
Great experience, comfortable transport, friendly driver. However at the salt mine, we should have been informed that we would exit at a different site, and needed to make our way back to the entrance to the mine.
Response from Host, Jun 2022
Dear Sir, Thank you for your feedback. The issues of organizing sightseeing in the mine depend on the museum. Thank you for your comment that customers should be informed of these specific matters. We appreciate every opinion to keep improving our service. We hope you will use our services in the future! Best regards, Joanna Poland Active
Great day trip outside of Krakow!
Eric_I, Oct 2021
Excellent day trip, our guide at Auschwitz- Birkenau was very knowledgeable, clearly knew his topic and the history. It is a difficult tour from a content standpoint, definitely not a place to bring young children. The headphones they provided for the Auschwitz part of the tour were very useful, guide only has to speak softly and everyone can hear. Guide at Wieliczka Salt Mine also very knowledgeable and made it interesting. The salt mine is truly amazing, a must see.Tour operator gave me the option to arrange for lunch which was very convenient. The 2 venues in 1 day makes for for a very long day, there's a lot of standing around and walking, at both Auschwitz- Birkenau and at the salt mine. You will be tired at the end of the day but it avoids 2 separate trips, so you can enjoy a full day enjoying and relaxing in Krakow.

Auschwitz and Salt Mines
Mick, Oct 2020
Don’t want to say too much about Auschwitz. If you are in Krakow you have to go. Tour picks you up at hotel and drops you back. The salt mines are wonderful and a must visit. They are not too crowded due to Covid so now is a must. And a got a little souvenir found on floor. Tour company very good. Would recommend.

Terrific tour of both. Great tour guides, really informational and knowledgeable. Special shout out to Dominik, our guide in the Salt Mine who was absolutely brilliant. Also, the driver of our bus (Michael) was amazing.

Loved our tour.
sherri_j, Mar 2020
The trip was AWESOME. Our guide at Auschwitz was fantastic, and we could not have asked for greater guide. The only complaint I have, is the van that took us to all the places, the leg room was not good. I am 5'8" and my husband is 6'2" and our knees were pushed against the seat in front of us for at least an hour at one point.

Georgia_B, Mar 2020
Driver was polite and kept us up to date throughout the day, really interesting things to see as well. Worth a trip to Kraków just to see Auschwitz- a very important historical site.

Excellent day
Amy_R, Mar 2020
Very well organized tour. Easy and quick communication through email. Pick up was on time and the day ran very smoothly, starting with Auschwitz - Birkenau tour followed by a one hour lunch break before the Saltmines tour. Our guide was brilliant. Though it’s a long day I would highly recommend the tour.

100% recommended
Gabrielle_H, Feb 2020
The guy in the mini bus was amazing! Organised and on time, pick up from the hotel, gave clear instructions on where we were going first/meeting points and how long the journey will take. The minibus was very luxury. The actual tour guides in both the salt mines and Auschwitz-Birkenau were very informative and knowledgeable and were happy to answer any questions. You were given earphones so could hear them both clearly no matter where in the group you were and you couldn't get lost. It was a long day and lots of walking to do the both in one but definitely worth it if only in Krakow for a few days. Definitely recommend.

Diane_L, Feb 2020
Excellent tour, guide was very knowledgeable and was keen for you to ask questions. Transport was very comfortable. Although lunch wasn't included we had plenty of time to eat our own food. There was also time to eat at a restaurant close to the salt mines.
