Auschwitz-Birkenau and Wieliczka Salt Mine
Aug 2020
Our time was limited, so being able to see three sites in one day worked really well for us. Our driver Christopher arrived on time, spoke fluent english, and offered plenty of information on the local culture, the sites we visited, and the surrounding area. We never felt rushed, or that we were waiting for long periods. In short, we thoroughly enjoyed our time with him. We also felt the guides at the different sites were passionate about their jobs, provided detailed accounts, and answered all of our questions. Groups were not too big, and waits in line were not too long.

Excellent trip, very well organised. Martin our driver was first class. Very sombre and touches your heart. The guide was very informative and spoke with respect and feeling. If in Kraków this is a must do visit.

Auschwitz and Salt Mine
Mar 2020
Driver was excellent picked us up from hotel in the morning.

From then on we had two guides one for the salt mine and one for the Auschwitz. They were both very knowledge but the Auschwitz tour guide was fantastic.

I didn't think the tours were rushed and they both did well to cram in so much information in just one day. You will not regret booking with this company. Everything was well organised.

There was no extra to pay and is all included in the price...

Excellent Tour
Feb 2020 • Couples
We had an excellent full day tour, great driver and excellent guides at both sites.

Was disappointed that we booked an 8am tour and was advised very late that our pick up was 6.40am. The company kindly refunded us some of the fee as compensation. Actually after the tour I was happy not to claim the refund, however it was paid with the efficiency the tour was run. I can only thank this company for their great service and excellent tour.

Great tour
My boyfriend and I only had 3 days in Kraków so it was great to be able to do the 2 biggest tours in one day.
We shopped around and found many tours around the same price that don’t include Auschwitz 1. So glad we chose this tour that does include it as that was our favourite and most informative part of the trip.
Our driver picked us up at our Airbnb, he was quiet but efficient.
Our guide in Auschwitz was amazing, she was so informative and incredibly knowledgeable. It was the day after the 75th anniversary and we were lucky enough to meet a survivor! We got to stop and ask questions.
The tour didn’t feel rushed at all. It was very cold and wet so I definitely recommend warm clothes and boots when visiting in winter.
Toilets are 2pzl. We had a break before and after each tour to grab snacks and hot drinks at the entrances.
The salt mines were great too. Lots more walking and lots of stairs. Beautiful sculptures and lagoons inside.
At the end there is a lift to take you back to the surface. It’s quite claustrophobic as you all get squeezed in together over 4 levels and it moves very fast. But is over in a couple of mins so not too bad.

Would definitely recommend this trip to anyone visiting Kraków for just a few days.

Auschwitz and salt mine tour
Jan 2020 • Family
Picked/dropped at apartment and taken to auschwitz. Very moving and the guide spoke brilliant English and informative. It was the 75th anniversary liberation of the camp so busy and preparation for the day was underway.
The salt mines were huge and the guide was also excellent and humorous. Highly recommend both, we did in same day and it was long day.
Take food and drink, not much available and long queues, it can be left on coach as bags not aloud in Auschwitz
Need coins for toilet too
We booked through Viator 7hr tour with pick up

Felt a bit rushed
We had an early pick-up (07:20) for this tour and knew it was going to be a long day (got back to hotel at 18:00). Despite the time, we felt the Auschwitz-Birkenau part of the tour (we also went to the salt mines) was very rushed. From the moment our guide started speaking to us it was a very fast, whistlestop tour of both memorial sites. This meant we didn't really have time to think and reflect on what we were seeing. In addition, the gate at Birkenau was shrouded in a marquee, which was being erected for the forthcoming 75th commemoration event of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau. A shame as that is such an iconic moment when you see it. Despite walking at pace, our guide Margaret was very knowledgeable and gave us lots of insight into the terrible atrocities that happened here, that should never be forgotten or repeated.

Thank you for sharing your thoughts with us. Some days the museum is extremely crowded so the official museum's guides has limited time to spend there inboth Auschwitz and the Birkenau sites. We're sorry about that but you also have to remember that we have no impact for the museum's rules. Same thing with a tent over the gate prepared for the ceremony.

Thank you for your feedback. Both of the places are really popular to see in the area so every visitor coming there has a limited time of the visit. It helps to enable to see both places to so many people. The lunch break lenght was caused by totally empty roads that day.
