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
