Excellent, smoothly run trip. Our coach collected on time with fantastic communication. Very informative and reassuring host on the coach. The tour guide at Auschwitz was extremely knowledgeable and set the perfect tone for a harrowing but important visit. Couldn’t recommend highly enough. Thank you.

The tour of Auschwitz was very informative and really put it into perspective when seeing the remains of the buildings and belongings that are there. I really liked that the tour provides you with a headset so you can hear the tour guide a lot clearer and easier as we were in a big group and had we had been at the back this would have not been possible. I didn't have much of an expectation for the Salt Mines but I was WOWed when we dove deeper into the mines. What has been done over the years is absolutely insane and amazing, definitely a must see even for those like myself who thought it wouldn't be anything special. I only wish the tour guide had the same headset idea that Auschwitz had as I found it very hard to hear the guide at times and had to keep asking my partner what they said. My only real negative is the small bus we were on that was almost full, was very cramped and hard to eat your lunch in comfort on. I could see no way to open any windows.

Excellent service from the tour company, and lunch was simple but really tasty. The guide for the Auschwitz tour was okay, but the one for the salt mine was amazing. I almost didn't go to the salt mine but I'm so so so glad I did. highly recommend this whole your!

Pick up on time & in comfortable mini van. Driver was funny and helpful. Salt mine first and first group in so had time and space to view without crowds. Lunch was tasty buns, fruit, water & chocolate. Onto Auschwitz & Birkenow the guide took us round and had excellent knowledge as did guide from salt mine. Dropped off outside hotel

It is worth the money. Not being anxious about the tickets, the transportation and the hours from one visit to the other (many Polish people do not speak English very well). The drivers and the guides were really helpful and nice people. Good snack on the break.

it was a really early start (06:30 pick up) & I was dubious about the timing... we arrived at Auschwitz & it was fairly quiet. After the guided tour of Auschwitz I i figured out why the early start. Iwas very pleased we started early, there were thousands of people beginning their tour. We then proceeded over to Birkenow to tour that camp. It was chilling to realise the scale of the genocide that happened here. it is so important that the world NEVER forget what happened here & that we learn from it. i was very impressed with the way the guide & the museum cinvey the facts of what went on here. i would highly recommend this tour.

Very well organised tour and great communication leading up to it. We were travelling to Krakow the same morning as the tour and they arranged to pick us up as near to the station as possible which was helpful. The bus was modern with A/C which was needed in the 35'C heat we had that day! Guides were all very knowledgeable and there was a good balance of seeing the sites with short breaks in between. Didn't feel rushed at any point and plenty of photo opportunities. It's a long day, but definitely worthwhile!

Tours were very good and guides were very informative. It's a lot of walking so make sure your shoes are comfortable and broken in. There is so much to be shown, that at times it felt very rushed (7 minutes to eat lunch)! No time for toilet stops, drink breaks etc. I walked just shy of 14 miles across the two Auschwitz tours and the Salt Mines tours in one day.

What a trip! Those two places are well worth visiting. Whether it's worth the money paid to the provider it's debatable. But definitely saves the hassle of organizing the trip. Easy to follow instructions from the driver, great guides in Auschwitz and Salt Mines. I do recommend this one day trip.

Amazing experience,skip the lines and great guides. However dangerous driving between activities, we picked the 9:00tour and were transfered to the 7:00 a day ago,there was no pick up from the hotel as advertised but a meeting point somewhere in the city and lunch was a lunchbox inside the van

The trip itself was really interesting and not normally my kind of thing but even I enjoyed it. We got picked up from our hotel and then taken everywhere and could leave our stuff in the car while we went to different parts of the trip. Highly recommended.
