Auschwitz-Birkenau & Salt Mine Tour
Aug 2021
This was a fantastic tour! Michael was our driver/tour guide for the day and he was awesome. He was extremely professional and very kind. The tour van to pick-us up was on -time and we watched a video about Auschwitz on our way there that was extremely impactful. Once we got to Auschwitz the company had taken care of anything. We only had to wait about 15 minutes for it to open since we had arrived early. The tour guide at Auschwitz and Birkenau was fantastic. After the Auschwitz tour we had about a 15 minute break and then the van took us over to Birkenau. After that we drove to the salt mine. When we got there we had a 50 minute break before the tour. Overall the day was great because we did not have to think or worry about a thing. Everything was taken care of and the day went very smoothly. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone.

KrakowDirect is A+ company!
Jul 2021
Our experience with KrakowDirect was fantastic! We booked our tour directly with the company and they were punctual and professional. They picked us up at our hotel, in a luxury Mercedes van and we watched a video movie on the Liberation of Auschwitz, which brought tears to my eyes, on our hour drive there. Then we had an exceptional, knowledgeable and very thorough tour guide, Anna, who gave us in depth history lesson at both Auschwitz and Birkenau. Then we were driven to Salt Mine, also amazing tour guide there, then driven back to our hotel. Our driver for all 3 locations was Adam and he was polite, courteous, and professional as well. The overall experience with KrakowDirect was superb! We also used them for airport transfer, pick up and return...excellent customer service! Highly recommend this company!

Dear Sir/Madam, We are very confused about your feedback. Please be informed, our Auschwitz-Birkenenau & Salt Mine trip is a full day combined tour, however your review refers to one day tour. Unfortunately, we are not able to find your booking in our reservation system so please contact us and provide the reference number so we could investigate the case deeply. Kind regards, Marlena Head of Customer Service

Sobering but well judged exhibition
Feb 2020
This was definitely a bucket list visit as we should never forget what can happen when a culture exists to inflict harm on others. Being lifted from the hotel was great and the guide was friendly and informative. Auschwitz guide was equally professional and impressive. We had time for a meal between each tour and the Salt mine was worth going to but there are a lot of steps albeit going down mostly.

The driver was 10 mins early, lovely man, very organised couldn’t be more helpful, great day out an awful lot of walking involved! But would definitely use these transfers for another tour when returning.

Educational Day!
Dec 2019
We visited Auschwitz & the Salt Mines in December. Peter picked us up early from our hotel & drove us through the countryside. Let me just say, I learned more about the country & culture on the drive than I ever expected! Once we toured Auschwitz, we opted not to take the detailed tour of Birkenau & go straight to the Salt Mines. They are not to be missed if you are planning at trip to Krakow. I highly recommend Krakow Direct Private Tours & if you get Peter, you won't be disappointed.
