Luke was our driver and tour guide, he was friendly and helpful. We first visited Auschwitz 1, then Auschwitz Birkenau, we then had lunch and then went to the Salt Mines. Our tour guide for Auschwitz 1 and Auschwitz Birkenau, was very informative and knowledgeable. It was interesting to visit the two camps and learn more about what the people went through. For our lunch we got a cheese salad roll, chicken pasta, wafer bar, apple, a sweet & a bottle of water, the lunch was really nice. The Salt Mines were interesting. I would definitely recommend this trip.

Excellent value trip....
Ann_W, Feb 2024
Excellent value trip. Very friendly coach driver who spoke good English. The lunch that was provided was delocious and much better than expected. We were picked up at 6.30 and arrived back at 5.30 but well worth it.
Great day out
Paul_H, Feb 2024
A great trip . Very thought provoking trip to Auschwitz and Birkenau. A great guided tour there. A good driver throughout. Lunch at a service station type place followed by a drive to The salt mines. Another great tour of The Amazing salt mines. A great day out with Peter our driver.
Unmissable experience
mariaschild, Feb 2024
A very full itinerary, which Mr Shuttle managed very well. We could not have done all of this excursion alone in a single day, as precise timings were needed to fit everything in. The morning in Auschwitz -Birkenau was as traumatic as we thought it would be, but it was a sort of pilgrimage and a paying of respects to the millions murdered there. The Salt mine, in contrast, was full of joy and wonder. It was a packed 10 plus hour day, with fast track access, a very substantial lunch, a courteous driver and, most importantly, 2 expert guides who were passionate about their subject. It was an unmissable experience and highly recommended. A word of warning, the morning is only really suitable for older teenagers onwards. It's a lot to process and unavoidably very upsetting.
Very good

good and educative experience with qualified guides and a good driver. salt museum was amazing and a super experience.
Wow, this trip was done beautifully
Sabrina_N, Feb 2024
From the minute you book, communication is amazing, picked up on the dot from the hotel. Staff that ran the trip were so amazing, such helpful and friendly people. We had a guided tour of Auschwitz and Birkenau which was heartbreaking. Our guide delivered the facts so beautifully with compassion. We were incredibly moved. Lunch was delicious, i’m a vegetarian and was catered for. A delicious sandwich and snacks. I would say eat breakfast before because it’s a long day. Finished in the salt mines… WOW. What a place I was not expecting what I saw. However… should warn you at the end you go up a mine shaft, you need to mind over matter it and you will be ok. Got dropped back to the hotel, everything ran perfectly.
Pick up on time and very...

Pick up on time and very efficient. Tour exceeded expectation. Lunch provided was very good. A great trip albeit a long day to visit both sites.
A must see! Mr shuttle are amazing!
Lisa_P, Feb 2024
A well organised day out from start to finish. Tomaz our driver from Mr Shuttle was amazing. Really friendly and informative. Kept everything running smoothly despite a really awkward passenger who decided to ignore all the instructions given causing us to delay leaving auschwitz and being extremely rude towards him. Food supplied was lovely and consisted of a filled roll, pasta salad, chocolate bar fruit and water. Highly recommend. Thomaz certainly made the trip even more enjoyable.
Rob_W, Feb 2024
Well arranged and thoroughly planned to get the most out of the day. True proffesionals. The guides were very informative and the drivers had us timed to a tee. The experience couldn’t have been better.
Worth while trip!
Keeley_O, Feb 2024
Great overall trip from Tomas. The salt mines was a highlight of mine and our tour guide Veronica was sensational! Auschwitz was chilling but definitely a must do if you love history.
Annemarie_C, Feb 2024
Fantastic well organised from start to finish it was definitely an experience I will carry with me for a very long time it opened my eyes to the enormity of what unfolded during the second world war
I highly recommend it
GIOVANA_D, Feb 2024
I highly recommend it. The tour allows for the best possible use of time, as the two destinations are quite far apart. The service is excellent, the bus is comfortable, and Mr. Shuttle was very kind. The tours are incredible; Auschwitz is impressive, albeit a bit rushed, but I believe this is the format offered by the site itself. The salt mines are amazing! There was a vegetarian option for lunch and bathrooms available at all stops during the tour.
Not so great.
Roza_V, Feb 2024
The not so good lunch bag and very little time to eat it. Very rushed toilet breaks. The tours in Auschwitz’s and Salt Mine were very good but the company service was horrible. Almost zero communication from the driver.
Response from Host, Feb 2024
Dear Roza, could you please contact us through email at with more information regarding the driver and the trip? We will investigate further. Please note, that the schedules are very tight because we need to follow the guide who is the official educator from the museum. Every tour of the Auschwitz Museum and Salt Mine is scheduled in every detail, so if we are late for a guide, they won't wait for us. Regards, Zuzanna MrShuttle

The whole trip was so thought provoking , a must do in my opinion Run like clockwork from start to finish
Experience of a lifetime
Betsy_R, Feb 2024
Ana was an excellent guide and really helped bring more history and relevance to the experience. Lucas was our driver and did a great job. I get motion sick pretty easily and had no problems on this bus.
Fantastic in every aspect!
Thomas_B, Feb 2024
Expertly organised, not a single wasted moment whilst still allowing ample time for breaks inbetween activities to grab a coffee, use the bathroom etc. Tour guide for Auschwitz I and Birkenau was extremely knowledgeable and ensured the most important areas of both camps were seen. Lunch was simple but tasty and filling - a sandwich, pasta salad, fruit, water and chocolate bar. The salt mine tour was to the same exceptional standard as Auschwitz. Highly recommend to anybody!!
Very good
Beth_M, Feb 2024
Great tour with Mr Shuttle, I would recommend. On time and very organised, couldn't have been better.
Five Star Informative
Lauren_B, Feb 2024
Got picked up right at hotel, was very informational and informative. The driver just took us from place to place but there was guides at each spot to take us around. Lunch was really good pasta salad, sandwich, apple, candy bar, and a water.
Memorable day
Michele_K, Feb 2024
10/10 experience. Great communication with Mr Shuttle tour company and reminders of when getting picked up. Comfy travel and fab music on route. Door to door experience. Very organised. Auschwitz-Birkenau was a must see. Humbling, visceral and respectful. You MUST experience this. The salt mines was great to do after the mornings visit to Auschwitz-Birkenau. The salt mines were magnificent and well worth a visit.
Lovely Experience
Priscilla_C, Feb 2024
Great experience with Mr Shuttle. Guides were stellar! Just wished there was a more comfortable coach as it was really quite a squeeze.
