          A day of many emotions but incredible & worth it
          The experience from beginning to end was excellent, from our driver picking us up, he explained in good English what our itinerary was & kept us right when taking us to each tour & then back to our hotel at the end. We paid for a lunch pack which our driver organised for us & only cost about £10 each which was fantastic value with everything that was in the lunch bag. Our guides spoke very good English & explained everything very well if I was to criticise anything it would be that our guide at Auschwitz & Birkenau could of been a little bit louder when he spoke. The Auschwitz/Birkenau tour was as expected very emotional & the Salt Mine tour was awe inspiring, so glad we had the opportunity to do both tours.

          Great tour - Guide must speak louder or use a microphone
          Everything was great the only complian is the guide spoke very low and since all the tour is outdoor was very hard to hear all the explanation.

          Auschwitz and the Saltmines
          As expected, a very moving experience... Our driver was very prompt, courteous and nothing was an issue. He even tried to get us on an earlier tour at the salt mines! Auschwitz-Birkenau was split in to two sections and the tour guide was very knowledgable in every aspect. She spoke with feeling and very passionate about what she was telling us. My only real criticism was the speed that we toured the two Auschwitz sites. It was difficult at times to soak in the real atmosphere - although the atmosphere is readily apparent throughout. I did get the sense of commercialism which, given the number of visitors, can't be helped. Organisation on this scale has to be of focus! The salt mines are something else. It's impossible to imagine the scale of the caverns and the work that went on. Suffice to say, the enormity of the skill, workmanship and craft that went in to create what lies below, can't be summed up in a few sentences - a visit is a must. So. An excellent experience in all aspects from being picked up at our hotel to being dropped off. Would recommend but be aware you may feel a little rushed at Auschwitz.

          Great experience! Highly recommend!
          Excellent experience! Driver Paweł was fantastic, prompt pick up from hotel & packed lunch provided for an additional small cost. The tour around both camps were great & guide was excellent. The salt mine tour was also great & well worth the visit! I would highly recommend using this company!

          Worthwhile and wonderous
          A fantastic experience that you won’t want to miss out on if you visit Krakow, Daniel was fantastic as our driver for the day and the provided tour guides were both incredibly informative and helpful. Auschwitz is as harrowing as you’d expect and our guide Kasha was both empathetic and informative in her delivery, dealing with the hordes of tourists she never rushed us or appeared harried. It is remarkable watching on as people take photographs of things that would be better directed to memory than behind an iPhone camera lense but perhaps that’s a sign of our times. I would advise visitors to remember that it’s a soul destroying moment in human history and taking photographs of pictures or barracks to post on social media to boast “I’ve been to Auschwitz” is incredibly distasteful and morbid. The salt mines were fantastic, a true wonder of man’s ability to expand his horizons. A truly wonderful trip.

          The experience you won't forget, and one that should not be forgotten
          From pickup at the hotel until drop-off 12 in the evening, this tour was well organized, efficient, and easy to navigate. Once we arrived at Auschwitz, our fabulous driver, Daniel, left us with Aga, who gave us the history as well as commentary that brought home the horror of the events that unfolded at the camps. Unforgettable experience.

          Great trip with the family. Pick up and all travel went very smoothly. The tours of auschwitz-birkenau is an absolute must. And the salt mines are amazing.

          A very poignant yet amazing day
          An amazing trip from start to finish. Picked up on the dot in a nice clean comfortable vehicle. Our driver was friendly and helpful. The trip to auschwitz is hard to describe. It was harrowing but at the same time very surreal being in such an historic place even though it’s historic for all the wrong reasons. We had a great tour guide to show us around. After leaving there it was onto the salt mines. An absolutely incredible place with an amazing tour guide. Be prepared to do a lot of steps here. The whole day was around 10-11 hours long but so so worth it. Very good value for money.

          A must see
          A must see when visiting Krakow, guides where knowledgeable and helpful. Transport was spot on and I would definitely take the packed lunch option as it is a long day with little chance of grabbing a snack.

          Both tours definitely worth visiting.
          Both tours were interesting and super informative. The Salt Mines in the afternoon was a good way to lift the mood after all the devastation of auschwitz birkenau in the morning. Only downside was they were very busy and felt a bit rushed.

          Great trip from start to finish!
          Highly recommend this tour. From start to finish everything was so well organised. Daniel our driver was great at communicating before and during the trip. The guides at each tour were very knowledgeable and informative. We did not find it hard doing both trips in one day, would recommend everyone does this! Lunch box can be provided for a small fee, which is great for ease. Everyone should book this!!

        Not really the trip for me. Travel was easy with the organised tour. We did the tourist trail, perhaps the miners tour on our own would have been better. Yes, the skill is tremendous but we were rushed through each area, our headphones continually broke up so we missed a lot the guide had to say. The guide on the tour following us was extremely rude when we stopped to take photographs as he wanted his tour into the area. Straight onto our bus at the end, leaving no time to have a look at the area the mines are located in. This is a tour we would advise going without a guide...personal choice.

        I found this very dull, and wanted to leave, but you can't. There was a huge que to get the lift out, which was a metal box where they squeeze in too many people so you are crushed against strangers. It was scary and not in a fun way!

        The history was boring, its a salt mine where nothing intresting happened and has been used as a tourist attraction for a long time. There was a few rooms which were impressive but not worth wasting 3 to 4 hours to see these. If you go on a busier day, I think it would have been a nightmare.

        I have been to several mines and carrvans which I enjoyed, but this is not done well.

        Dear Sir/Madam Unfortunately but we do not organize a tour for this reviewer!!!! This review should be remove to correct listing "Wieliczka Salt Mine" attraction. We are a transportation company and we organize only transport and tickets so we can`t take any responsibility for organization inside museum. Anyway, I think that you are one for thousand people which say that Salt Mine attraction is boring. This is one of the oldest Salt Mine in Europe so why you expect that for example elevator will be modern.

        Had a wonderful trip to the salt mines in Krakow. Collected on time, dropped off on time and a brilliant visit in the middle. When they say there’s a lot of stairs they’re not kidding - at least they’re pretty all down! Well worth a visit

        I really enjoyed my trip to the salt mines with friends, the only thing i wish is that we had made it a morning tour rather than late afternoon as we were all very tired by that point and i think had it been first thing in the morning would have made it much better.

        visited here with my husband. we got picked up from a meeting point given to us from our tour operator.

        We arrived at the salt mine, given headset so we could easily hear the tour guide. we started by heading down the many steps to get to the mine, be warned there is a lot of steps and walking involved!!

        unfortunately we had a group of girls in our group that were very loud and offer spoke over the guide meaning i missed some history. the tour guide did ask the girls numerous times to be quiet, but they’d all had quite a bit to drink.

        apart from this the tour guide was very informative and gave us plenty of time to look round and take pictures.

        i think it’s a must see as the mine has some beautiful parts to it and the photos don’t do it justice!!

        We organised our tour with SeeKrakow and the administration and transport all worked perfectly including being met and organised up to the handover to the salt mine guide. The guided tour itself was interesting and the English speaking guide pointed out a lot features and facts - perhaps surprisingly missing out any information about what happened during WWII. The guided tour also did not allow enough time at the rwo 5 min rest stops. The mine is very impressive from a size and age perspective but the various carvings were not as impressive as I expected from photos. A photo pass costs 10 zloty and is available before and during the tour. The return journey also went perfectly. We felt the trip was worth doing through SeeKrakow but don't expect too much information.

        The salt mines are definitely worth a visit if you're in Krakow. The mines are very interesting, accessible to tourists and made very interesting thanks to the guides. A part of the history of this fantastic region of Poland!
