Would throughly recommend this trip. Very good comms prior to the trip especially given that we booked on the Saturday for the very next day.
We found the driver very pleasant, very prompt and the drive was very comfortable and we felt safe in his hands.
The itinerary was packed but well organised. The guides were very knowledgable.
Once confirmed, you will get an email or text to say that a lunch pack can be purchased for an extra 40PLN each.
We found this really good value. We got a substantial lunch which we snacked in during the day.
We would recommend the lunch packs as you get limited time for breaks but there are lots of toilets enroute and opportunities to visit them if required.

The driver kept us well up to date with pick up times and instructions for entry etc. We paid for the ready packed lunch which was well worth it as you don’t get much time for queuing for food.
The guide was exceptional. He was extremely knowledgeable and empathetic throughout the Auschwitz and Birkenau tour. This experience was somber to say the least, upsetting for sure. Arriving at Birkenau and seeing the size of the camp was a shock.
The transfer to the salt mines was a long way but worth the journey. Again we had a great guide who had a good sense of humour. We would definitely recommend this company, from start to finish the communication was brilliant and every part of it was hassle free.

Booked a group tour for Auschwitz and the Salt Mines, really clear communication via WhatsApp with Michal who booked everything in advance and gave us our exact pick up and drop of times.

On the day our driver Daniel was really friendly and made us all feel safe and told us exactly how the day would work and where you could find him in between visits if we needed him.

Really good trips as Auschwitz is a must see and the Salt Mine is amazing so it was really nice to book with a company who took care of everything and even gave us a very varied packed lunch at a good price.

Would highly recommend this company as it was stress free and efficient, make sure to bring comfortable/walking shoes as you will be doing lots of walking on the day!

Expertly organised cultural and historic trip. Organised transport arrived exactly when they said with the driver being very friendly and helpful. Tour guide at Auschwitz was passionate and deeply informative. Tour guide at the Salt Mine was great also! just make sure you have Whatsapp downloaded as transport driver will contact you through that to organise food (at additional cost). We brought our own food however from seeing other customers lunches, i’d say it was worth the price.

A truly harrowing place that should be a must for everyone to visit in order to commemorate those who perished and to educate future generations.
The guide was brilliant and very informative and the headsets worked just fine, yes sometimes sound dropped out but these things happen when inside or underground.
The salt mine extension was a good addition and the carvings created down there were amazing to see.
Our driver was good, the quality of the vehicle and space within was good too so all travel was in comfort.
I would definitely recommend having a guided tour at Auschwitz.

We booked this trip online. Communication between Michal and us has been amazing, receiving confirmation messages about pick up times so we were well prepared. Our driver on the day was very good, gave us clear instructions on where we would be collected from and was there to pick us up again, even arranged lunch boxes for us. Same company did our airport transfer, would thoroughly recommend them.

We visited both Auschwitz & The Salt Mines in a one day tour. Both were equally remarkable for very different reasons. Auschwitz was a chilling spectacle that really hits home when so see the reality of it. The Salt Mines was a great day showing hard work and talent that went into the Salt Industry. We were picked up at 7:35 by our private guide who made is feel looked after all day. We did feel exhausted and drained towards the end but it was very much worthwhile. Lots of working on both trips with little option for accessible assistance. We didn’t have packed lunch provided but there was plenty of opportunity to buy snacks throughout the day. We took a packed lunch and left this on the bus. There was plenty of breaks to eat and use the toilet. You need to pay 2PZL every time you use the toilet in Auschwitz (it’s free in the Salt Mine). We went in January and it was very cold so wear suitable clothing. The most important advice I can give you is wear comfortable shoes!!! Lots of walking for hours on end (my watch had clocked 25,000 steps by the end of the tours). There is very uneven ground. Spectacular Tour. Highly recommend.

Martin collected us from our hotel at 8am and took us first to the Salt Mines. He introduced us to our guide for the morning who was very informative. The tour was fascinating and the salt mines are spectacular.

It was then just over an an hours drive in the comfy bus to the Auschwitz museum, where we stopped for lunch for half an hour. Our next tour guide was introduced to us and we proceeded with the tour. After an hour and a half of touring we were back on the bus towards Birkenau for another hour or so of tour before an hour 20 minute drive back into Krakow.

Excellent tour. Excellent knowledge. Brilliant service. Definitely recommend.

We had amazing service from this company. The day before they messaged to give us a pick up time. We were first to be picked up at 7.20am by our driver Victor getting to Auschwitz at just after 9am. This was a two and a half hour tour, our tour guide was very knowledgeable and spoke perfect English. Once your tour ends, you then go back to your driver who takes you to Birkenau, which is just under a mile away. Once there you meet the tour guide from Auschwitz who takes you around. This tour lasts about one and a half hours.
Once this was done we met Victor who then took us to the salt mines, it takes just over an hour to get to the mines from Birkenau.
On arrival there we had a wait of one and a half hours, which gives you plenty of time to get food and well deserved drink. The restaurant we ate in was lovely and was recommended by Victor, who had booked tables for us, however if you wanted to try somewhere else you could. there isn't a lot of other choice. The food that we had was gorgeous and we would definitely recommend you eat here.
The salt mines were very beautiful, and it was good to see. Our tour guide was lovely but we couldn't hear what she was saying half the time due to crackling in the headphones. This tour lasts two and a half hours. There are a lot of steps, approx 800 in total to get down. Personally we didn't see this as a problem. The only way to get back up is a very small lift that is in the mine shaft. This was not a nice experience, personally, but it's your only way up.
Victor then met us and took us all back to our hotel.
The transport was very comfortable, it's a mini van and there were three other couples with us.
This trip is definitely one to do, I would recommend anyone to do Auschwitz, it's a real eye opener and not what we expected. The mines then lighten the day back up.
Victor was brilliant, always checking that everyone was happy, and it was a pleasure to have him as our driver.
I would absolutely recommend this company and this package. Yes it's a long day but it's worth it, and great value for money.
Thank you we had a great day.

Excellent service by the tour operator. We were picked up bang on time from outside our hotel.
The trip to Auschwitz is as you would expect - incredibly interesting and eyeopening but emotional and intense. Our tour guide was incredibly knowledgeable. I feel to say you enjoyed the tour is the wrong word to use but it was fascinating. Our only complaint is that the group size for the tour is too large. Many of the people on our tour were only interested in photo opportunities (which we found a little odd to be honest) and as such by the time you got to see the exhibits / read the boards the tour guide had moved on to the next section.
That being said, that is down to Auschwitz itself rather than this particular tour company. We have decided we would like to return and perhaps do a private tour / see if there is an option for a smaller group.
Once Auschwitz was complete we headed to the Salt Mines. The journey takes around 90 minutes and we then had time for lunch at the restaurant. To be honest we found the salt mine tour a little underwhelming. Parts were pretty to look at but that was about it. Again the tour size was far too large so hearing what was going on was difficult.
There are a LOT of stairs. And when they say you go back up in a lift, it is worth mentioning this actually an open mine shaft!
I think we were probably tired and quite drained from the morning at Auschwitz to be able to enjoy the Salt Mines. We did the two together as we were only in Krakow for 2 days, but in hindsight we should have just done Auschwitz. It is a very long day.
Our driver was excellent - professional, friendly and punctual.
