Response from Ptasz, Kierownik at Auschwitz Birkenau Museum and Wieliczka Salt Mine guided tour in 2 days
Responded 3 Mar 2020
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
