Owner description: Cracow City Tours - young, energetic tour company from Cracow, professional attitude and excellent value for low prices. Auschwitz-Birkenau Museum, Salt Mine in Wieliczka, Cracow Old Town Sightseeing, Nowa Huta, Zakopane, Dunajec, Częstochowa and many more. The meeting point located in the city centre and easy to be found. No hotel pick-up as we don’t intend to torture you going around the town and collecting people from other hotels. Groups can expect individual treatment.

Hotel reserved tickets for Aushwitz and the Salt Mine tours on separate days. I paid a few hours before the tour bus departed. Prices were reasonably and competitive. The tour was seamless and all members involved (e.g. guides, driver, sales staff) were extremely professional. Could not have been happier with their service.

I would recommend without hesitation.

There are plenty of local tour agencies in Krakow - we chose Krakow City Tours as you can book on-line before leaving the UK. Slightly more expensive than the average but the coaches and tour guides were of very high quality and probably worth it.

Auschwitz was a long tour and, inevitably, a disturbing experience but essential for history. The museum site is very busy, very large number passing through it in August which meant you couldn't ponder for long at each point, but there a lot to take in so it wasn't an issue.

The salt mine tour was fantastic. So much to see. The atmosphere was exactly as you would expect with each 'view' being amazing, unusual and amazing. Well worth it. About 3 hours and a couple of kilometers to walk - although I'd have gone a lot further if that was possible!

Went on the Auschwitz tour and it was absolutely fantastic. Our tour guide (whose name I unfortunately forgot) really knew her stuff, and she answered pretty much all our questions in a really easy to understand way. The tour here was also cheaper than some of the other ones I found, so I was very happy for the price I paid. If I hadn't already gone on the salt mine tour with another company the day before, I would have gone on it with these guys right after the Auschwitz tour.

Good value for money; Went to Auschwitz with CCT, fantastic guide, good bus, on time - everything was the best you'd expect. Salt mines tour with Sebastian guiding. He was the best guide imaginable - so knowledgeble, funny, experienced and professional. Answered all our questions and then some. Very efficient tour. Went to the mines and back to the city in 4 hours - saw the endless lines of people saving money by not using tour company. So worth the extra couple of zlotys to go with CCT. Will definitely go with this company again if need, and would recommend it to anyone!

We chose this tour company after reading these reviews and an internet search showed them to be the most reasonably priced and we weren't disappointed. We went on the Auschwitz-Birkenau tour. We arrived at the bus for 8am (tip: the address when put into google maps takes you to McDonalds, continue past McDs - through the archway, through the small piece of park, cross the road and you will see the tour company on the right opposite the monument/founatain). The bus was full so if you want a specific seat (e.g. front seat) you will need to arrive early. The tour was well run, with a video to watch during the 60 minute journey. The tour guide at Auschwitz was knowledgeable and informative. It was a super hot day but there were enough breaks (when we first arrived and then before heading to Birkenau) to get water etc. The staff were friendly and could seamlessly change languages. We would highly recommend booking your tour with this company.
