        Excellent tour to a very humbling and interesting place.
        Krakow Direct were recommended by the hotel we stayed in. It was easy to book, and they have excellent communication. They picked us up from the hotel and dropped us back there after. Our tour guide and driver, Michael, was excellent , spoke perfect English and was very knowledgeable. Make sure to book ahead as our tour mini bus was full. Highly recommended.

        Sceptical about Krakow Direct?
        Very professional service. All around great service from Krakow Direct! Will admit I was a bit sceptical at first but the transport turned up to pick us up for our tour promptly, very nice friendly chap called Martin, our tour guide was very informative and knowledgeable of Auschwitz, one and two and took the time to answer everyone’s questions individually. The Tour: As expected there’s only so much you can expect when you’re going to the literal final resting place of 1.5 million people. It’s an emotional rollercoaster. Our experience was very well thought out and educational. Review on Auschwitz itself: As stated above there’s only so much to expect from visiting the camps. I personally felt it was a tad commercialised at points because as important it is to learn about these things so they never are repeated the are a lot of tours and people around which kinda kill the solace of the experience. That being said. There were rooms in which we were shown around where I felt physically sick. Please don’t think it’s me being dramatic, I’ve been around the world and done a fair bit but that stuff made my stomach churn. BUT THATS JUST MY OPINION. IT DOES NOT RELECT BADLY ON ANY OF THE SERVICES THEY WERE ALL GREAT.

        Reliable. This is a valuable predicate when you contract a service. And this was deliverable by the company. We schedule with less than 12 hours, but, in the date, in the time, the van was in the front of our hotel. Yaro, our guide, was perfect and everithing go well. The place, the Salt Mine, 150 meters above superfície, was a wonderful experience. We recomend.

        Auschwitz/ Birkenau Tour
        We were picked up on time from our hotel for the Auschwitz/Birkenau museum tour. Our driver was lovely and made sure we had a pleasant ride he told us to call him Jack. He was very informative and friendly, he showed us a short film about Auschwitz before we arrived in the mini bus which I found very interesting. It was a very sad and traumatic day but the tour guides were fantastic, they did an amazing job. It was an important trip to do and I highly recommend you book when visiting Krakow.

        Salt Mine and Schindler Factory
        The Salt Mine was fantastic. Well worth doing. Schindlers Factory great guide but museum space is small with many detailed exhibits that there is no opportunity to view. I think I will go back as an individual visitor but glad I went on guided tour first

        Must do tours in Krakow
        Booked both the Auschwitz/Birkenau and salt mine trips through Krakow direct. As mentioned when booking, they emailed me the day before to confirm the time of pick up. Both drivers were super friendly and arrived promptly. The tour guides were also very knowledgeable, especially Nicholas, an ex-miner in the salt mine who was good fun. It was also a bonus to be able to join a walking tour of the old town for free which we did on our first night.

        Must do
        When previously I went in 2005 was a less processed experience, more able to connect. As it was December, snow and ice combined with early darkness meant the the Birkenau part was more rushed and felt cut short. Guides good but too close proximity to each other meant over talking. Didn’t help a couple were left behind and coach had to turn back for them. I see it as an essential visit out of respect for those that died. Still worthwhile but now a little impersonal

      Our friends did this tour with Peter in January and had such a great experience that they recommend this company to us. Sadly we didn’t have the same experience or driver. The tours around Auschwitz and Birkenau felt rushed, lots missed out at both sites that other groups were seeing- wooden huts etc. No time to take it in or look at the exhibits. We ended up being a large group of 24 with no social distancing. Our driver was Simon, nice but silent and didn’t know the answers to any questions and just said ‘ask the guide’.
      The guide and tour at Schindler’s factory tour was amazing. Very knowledgable and made the tour really interesting. Saved the day really.

      Dear Sir/Madam Thank you for making us aware of the issue. We are extremely sorry that you were not satisfied with the tour. Unfortunately, the only authority to provide guided tours at the camps is the Auschwitz-Birkenau State Museum, so we do not have any influence on sightseeing routes during regular tours. The Camps are the most popular tourist attraction in Poland so guides' schedules are very busy and the number of visitors per day is massive. Guides need to speak quite rapidly in order not to keep other groups blocked on the sightseeing route. If it comes to the driver, we will discuss with him about this tour and ask to be more focus on Customers' questions We are glad that Schindler's Factory part met your expectations. Kind regards, Marlena Head of Customer Service KrakowDirect

      I was very pleased with the service from Kraków Tours, I booked online before we arrived in Kraków this was a 21st birthday jaunt for my son.
      I booked the private pick up from our hotel which was excellent, I also cannot emphasise how good our guide for the Auschwitz-Birkenau tour was, she was very knowledgable and informative.
      Once finished at Birkenau our driver as part of the package drove us to the Schindler factory tour, we were fortunate enough to be the only two booked on our tour and were also blessed with another knowledgable and informative guide.
      Once we were finished our driver returned us to our hotel.
      All in all an exceptional experience and one I would highly recommend.

      We were collected on time by Thomas from our hotel and taken to Auschwitz then to Schindler’s factory. Our guide was very informative and very helpful in dropping us off close to the main square so we could watch the match. Each event was stress free thanks to good organisation. Would definitely use again.

      The tours of Auschwitz and Birkenau were wonderful. Well organized and interesting. Everyone needs to see these places. BUT the so-called tour of the Schindler Factory was a big disappointment. There is no factory — just the walls and roof of Schindler’s original enamelware factory. Instead, rooms are filled with the story of Poland’s occupation during the war. Which, of course, is interesting but not what we expected to see. There were brief mentions of Schindler and a display of his original desk at the factory, but that’s as far as that story went. I left feeling deceived. Don’t advertise a tour of a factory when it’s simply a bunch of photos from WWII Poland. That is false advertising. The tour description needs to be truthful. I feel like we were deceived by the old “bait and switch” tactic. Shameful!

      We request a refund. They texted me 9 times times the night before and told me where to meet them but it was wrong and the van came but did not have us on the list and did not take us. I confirmed that previous night to the text and asked the street address, which they texted that night before. They did not respond to my many texts that morning after we three were left behind. A driver called that morning but the calls did not come through. Someone else called and emailed later that day to reschedule the next day at noon; however our flight left then. We luckily were able to find another 6 hour tour later the same day.

      My 13-year old son and I had a full day tour to Auschwitz-Birkenau and Schindler’s Factory with Peter last week. We were so impressed with Krakow Direct from start to finish! Natalia’s communication was friendly and clear and she was so helpful in finding a way (schedule-wise with short notice) for my son and me to do a private tour one day and my husband to do a group tour another day. Peter was our driver and he was prompt, really courteous and thoughtful (even picking up some lunch for us to save time and allow us a quick bite to eat between Auschwitz and Birkenau...and showing us some interesting sights that we wouldn't have otherwise seen). He also made reservations for us to have a quick meal later in the day next to Schindler’s Factory when we had an hour break. He was very communicative about what to expect for the day and shared SO much knowledge with us about Polish history and culture. The subject material was horrific and heavy but our experience with Krakow Direct and Peter as our guide couldn’t have been better.

      Where to begin - Direct Krakow was AMAZING. Our tour guide was safe with transportation - picked us up from the front door, was early! Kept us entertained and very knowledgeable. We started the day with Auschwitz, which in itself is an experience. VERY emotional tour but absolutely worth it. So much history to be learned and walking in the victims and survivors footsteps is unimaginable, unforgettable. Next, we were taken to the Oskar Schlinder Factory where our tour guide waited until it was over for us to be dropped back off at home. We had actually added this tour last minute and Direct Krakow was very understanding and accommodating - very appreciated. The only thing - is be prepared with payment. Make sure if you are paying online in advance that the transaction actually gets processed. We had booked our Auschwitz months in advance and were told the day of that we had a remaining balance. Highly recommended to use Direct Krakow - I can't think of a better tour company!

      The day is along one starting with collection from our Hotel at 9.20 greeted by Yarek our driver and Catarina our English speaking Guide. On the way to Auschwitz-Birkenau we were shown a film relating to our destination which was very informative. We thought we knew the History but it soon became apparent that what we knew only scratched the surface.

      Auschwitz-Berkeneu is stunning and giving time to process your day will be important. Catarina was an outstanding guide.. the respect shown by her to the events was very moving.

      We had 10 minute break before going into Camp 1 and another after before a 5 minutes journey to Camp 2. Ensure you have lunch with you as you'll have enough time for the loo only. We visited in February so warm clothing was essential along with comfortable footwear.

      Once done we made our way by minibus to Oskar Schindlers Factory and then back to our Hotel around 6pm.

      Again... give yourself time to process all that you have seen, heard and felt. We as a family felt different things and became emotional at different points but... we all came away with an overwhelming respect for those who chose to preserve Auschwitz-Berkeneu and educate to ensure those that passed through the gates are never forgotten.......... Mind blowing
