Owner description: Krakow is the second largest city in Poland and one of the country's main tourist destinations. The city is recognized as a Poland’s principal center of science and education because of its numerous universities and other institutions of higher learning. While sightseeing this historical city you can explore: The Royal Wawel Castle & Cathedral, Magnificent baroque Churches, St. Mary’s Church, St. Florian’s Gate and Barbican (The Best Preserved in Europe), Main Market Square, Cloth Hall and many more! While in Krakow we encourage everyone to visit nearby places such as: Auschwitz and Birkenau - it’s a place that should be known by everyone and visited at least once in a lifetime. Heartbreaking and breathtaking part of world history that should be remembered. Wieliczka Salt Mine - one of the most valuable monuments of material and spiritual culture in Poland and among twelve objects on the UNESCO’s World and Natural Heritage List. Schindler Factory - a place to explore the jewish history in Krakow. Zakopane Day Trip - go and see the beautiful sights of polish mountains. Dunajec River Tour - see the historical monuments and just relax rafting on a mountain river.

Amazing company to go through! Very helpful with questions and responding quickly. Tours where very well planned out and guides where great and had a lot of information. Escape2Poland made sure we had what we needed and there transpertation team was always on time and very nice and helpful. We would use them again for our traveling needs and recommend to book tours it will help you see the city and understand what you are seeing!! We booked 3 tours through Escape2Poland Auschwitz and Birkenau, The Salt Mines, and Schindler's List due to us spending time with our family who live in Poland we didn't go on the Salt Mines tour but did hear great things. The Auschwitz and Birkenau tour is a ton of walking and they walk fast so make sure you wear good shoes and bring water. There is a place to get food and drinks but we didn't have much time. A heads up to use the bathroom on this tour it coast 1zl. On the Schindler's list tour the guide to her time walking to we could take everything in. The guided tour was worth it because she was able to explain what you where seeing we had people coming up to our tour because they had know idea the importance of what they where seeing. Toward the end of the Schindler's list tour you walk to the getto and Schindler's factory this is a long walk but worth seeing and when you are done touring the factory there are cabs out front because its a 30min walk back to the main part of town and you will not have a guide for this part. The currency is easier to under stand then you may think but make sure you have some before going on the tours you will want something to drink or might have to pay to use a bathroom and if you have questions email Escape2Poland they are very nice and helpful!

“Excellent service from Escape2Poland”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2014

Stayed in Krakow in April 2014 and used the above company for airport transfers and Auschwitz and the Salt Mine. Company was recommended by a friend but also read the positive reviews on Tripadvisor.
We were met at the airport by a friendly driver who loaded our luggage into an immaculate minibus and were driven to our hotel in the Jewish Quarter.
On the following two days, drivers were prompt on time. The tour to Auschwitz was excellent - the guide provided was knowledgeable and informative.
Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this company and would certainly use them again when we return to Krakow.

“No qualms here...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2014

We actually stayed in Katowice (40 mins from Krakow) and most companies I enquired with weren't willing to travel that far to collect us, and those that said they would, offered to do so at an extortionate rate. Escape2Poland however, were one of the cheapest and didn't hesitate to collect us from Katowice. It was just myself and my partner in the taxi itself. The taxi was on time, the driver was pleasant and didn't speak much English but we got by just fine. The journey was pleasant and the tour was, well, it's difficult to choose words to describe a concentration camp but it was informative and I learnt much. All in all, I would totally recommend.
