We were picked up outside our door. Paul was our tour guide. He was great. We went to Auschwitz first, where he dropped us off befor 10am and proceeded to tour it ourselves. We spent 2 hours there. A must see. He waited for us at the entrance. We then proceeded to Birkenau. We found this to be really heavy emotionally. Seeing the gate as in Schindlers List movie, and the rail track to the death camp, and the ghostly chimeney's hit us hard.
After this we travelled to the salt mines, we stopped at a local restaurant but there was a wedding that day there. So we continued to the saltmines, where there was ample food to be purchased. They accepted credit cards everywhere. The salt mine tour was excellent. The 3 hours there was incredible. Our tour guide was amazing. There is a full tavern and restaurant that you can eat at after the first part of the tour is done. Loved it.
Paul the drove us back to our hotel. He was great. The day was perfect, and well organized time wise. Thanks Paul

This was a one off experience. We live in a tin mining area and are very used to visiting mines, but this mine was of an altogether grander scale. The dry and witty tour guide takes you on a journey underground to witness some incredible sculptures and structures.

The tour was very efficient in that the guide gives breaks for tea but does not linger around the shopping area, which suited us fine. Also, if you go without a tour guide, you can enjoy the children's play area and restaurant. Again, we were grateful to by-pass this pleasure and get back to the city.

It felt that we all had an adventure underground -very informative and interesting. There are a lot of steps down and some walking, but a lift takes you back to ground level.

The price worked out at £90 for a family of 5, which included travel and drop-off to the destination of your choice. We felt that it was very good value and all adults could claim 10% off a further tour taken with the same company. Everything else in Poland is so reasonable that we felt it was money worth spent; it saved time and travel stress, particularly when travelling with children.

Another very happy customer. After reading the reviews here we went to Auschwitz and Birkenau with Tomasz, and he couldn't have organised the day any better. Everything was easy, no hassle and arranged with a minimum of fuss. This is a harrowing and emotional day, so having all the little details sorted for you is a massive plus. Lovely safe air con car, and great to have a chat to on the way to and from. The tour guides arranged at A and B were hugely knowledgeable as well and really gave us a sense of the horrors of the place. The guided tour is highly recommended to learn as much as you can. Be aware that there is a lot of walking involved on this tour (a good few km over the day). Very highly recommended.

Booked this day trip from the website, which was very easy. We had a follow-up email to explain everything - no problems, and our driver Tomasz was waiting for us on time as promised. The day went perfectly. My advice to readers looking for transport to and from the Camps and Salt mine is this: there are many tours advertised and probably some are much cheaper, however if you want a personal high quality service - in a safe clean A/C vehicle, and you want to do the tours without being harrased to meet time-points, in other words you get what you pay for. I would highly recomend this company as this was very good value for money. Tomasz was extremely professional, knowledgable, courtious and has a perfect command of english. He did everything possible to ensure we were safe, comfortable and above all that we made the most out of the tours - look no further.

My mum and I booked this day trip, and had a great experience. We were looked after by Tomasz throughout. Tomasz made us feel very safe and made sure we were organised during the trip. The journey to the site was good, as Tomasz was chatty, knowledgeable and friendly. A very thoughtful touch was Tomasz booking the restaurant for our lunch to ensure we got a table. The car we travelled in was very comfortable and air conditioned- hooray! We have already recommended this service to friends and family. I would definitely use this service again :)
