Fantastic 2 day Tour
Sep 2020 • Couples
We travelled as a group of 4 to both the Auschwitz and the Salt mine. Our tour leader, Michael, was fantastic. He was funny, knowledgable and perfectly on time both days!
A big thank you for looking after us!

Sep 2020 • Couples
Couldn’t recommend this company highly enough! Booked our auschwitz tour and salt mine tour with them. Drivers were on time picking us up from our hotel, great covid-19 measures in place on both the transport and at the sites. Drivers and guides were extremely knowledgable during the tour and were very friendly/ approachable. Had a great experience with Kraków direct so will definitely recommend our friends and family use them when visiting Kraków!

Very professional service. We used them for Airport transfers and the driver was waiting for us as soon as we walked out of the arrivals lounge. The next day we had a guided tour of schlinders factory ,we was the only 2 people on it and the the guide ,Joanna was fantastic and very knowledgeable..
The next day we did Auschwitz tour and salt mine in one day and it was very good.Michael was our driver and he was a very nice young man ..
Kraków direct tours are 100% reliable and very professional ..cheers

Extremely rude driver
The driver of our private transfer was extremely rude. He never looked at us, never said a word upon our arrival, he just opened the vehicle’s door obviously annoyed of our existence.

Then he offended us twice, once when we asked him to repeat some of the instructions - he replied back with a seriously mad look, really annoyed of us asking a question “dont you speak english?” he said.

Then i dared to interrupt him with another question when we arrived at the monument, the reply this time was “can i finish?” , i was asking for clarification on what he had just said not in fluent english.

Ultimately, we didn’t exchange another word, he never said hi or bye. He was a private driver!

Dear Sir/Madam, Thank you for making us aware of the issue. We are very sorry to see such a negative opinion about our driver. It is really shocking for us since all of our drivers are well-trained and speak excellent English. We would appreciate it if you could send us the reference number of your reservation so we could check who was your driver for your Auschwitz-Birkenau Tour. It would be very useful for us since we do our best to maintain the high standards of all of our services. Kind regards Paulina Head of Customer Service Krakowdirect.com

Auschwitz and salt mine tour
This company is absolutely flawless, I will recommend them to anyone who is visiting Krakow and who wants to do the tours. They picked us up from our hotel and the bus was very clean, the driver who was called Martin was amazing, he was so helpful with everything. On the way to Auschwitz the bus played a video about it which was quite informative, this was a good way to inform us on what we were expecting to see and it also made the journey easier as the drive was an hour and a half away. Honestly the best experience, there were no faults at all this company is definitely 5 stars!!

Fabulous Service
Feb 2020 • Friends
Fabulous service. Have used these for 3 visits to Kraków now. Professional and always on time to pick you up from your hotel for trips and drop you wherever you want in Kraków.
Another plus is you don’t have to pay up front and you are kept well informed by email or they will ring you. Can’t say any negatives.

A lot of impressions in one day!
Feb 2020 • Couples
Started the day at Auschwitz and then the Birkneau camp (limited food options until 15.00, so bring some snacks and eat breakfast).
This part of the tour is solemn but very informative and important. The guide was very knowledgeable!

Lunch by the salt mines, and a tour in the mines. A really cool sight and very nice compared to the previous tour..!

Our driver, Michael, was very enthusiastic and helpful, and had a lot of knowledge even though we had a dedicated guide for the different sights.
