Owner description: Krakow Tours are an English company providing quality, personalized tours to the major sites in and around Krakow, using English speaking guides. We specialize in Auschwitz/Birkenau and Wieliczka Salt Mine tours, we are highly recommended on TripAdvisor for our combined 1 day tour. We also offer many other interesting trips that are off the usual tourist trail.

We decided to visit Auschwitz, Birkenau and the Salt Mines as a one day tour and while a long and somewhat tiring day our guide Mark was excellent and as previous reviewers have mentioned his knowledge and passion for the camps never ceased to amaze me. You can join these tours in Krakow using larger coaches for less cost however I think it was well worth paying a little extra for the sevices of a very knowledgable and friendly guide. If you have the time it is worh doing the two tours on separate days as there is lots of walking and stairs (in the mine). Krackow Tours also provided our airport transfers very efficiently and without problem.

I was expecting a polish guide but clear speaking English Phil was a nice surprise:) He's been living in Krakow for a long time though. Our tour involved Auschwitz, Birkenau Camps and Salt Mines. He was on time to collect us and very knowledgeable about sites.He made sure we get in ahead of big crowds and queues.He even had umbrellas ready in case it rained.He is very friendly and seems to be trustworthy guy so I highly recommend his services.

Used Krakow Tours today having pre-booked with Phil for a trip to Auschwitz and the Salt mines. We had Mark as our guide who was fantastic and had a real passion for the history. Definately can reccommend this tour company as everything was arranged brilliantly. Great value for money and would definately do it again.

Would recommend Krakow Tours with Phil Clark to anybody. We had excellent service throughout our visit and Phil and his team will give you a full, comprehensive history of the area.
You will be well looked after from start to finish and be able to relax in the knowledge that you are in capable hands.

This was our first time in Krakow and we were not sure whether to pre-book trips or wait until we got there but we were glad that we decided to do it in advance with Krakow tours.
We decided to go on the combined Auschwitz/Salt mine tour but had left it a bit late so could not get the actual date we wanted with Phil although he handled the booking and our queries promptly and professionally via email.
However I’m sure we would have been hard pressed to have a better guide than his colleague Mark. From the moment he introduced himself when we stepped outside our apartment (he was already waiting for us) we could not have wished for a more polite, courteous and affable young man to guide us. He made us very welcome and was so knowledgeable and keen he made us feel as if he was an ex-pat friend who was taking us on the tour on a personal trip as opposed to the fact he must do this regularly as part of his job.
Auschwitz and Birkenhau are harrowing places to visit but Mark got the balance right by letting us do a bit on our own and yet walking us around Birkenhau and conveying a sense of deference and respect that was extremely mature , again making us feel as this was almost his first time there and he was on a bit of a pilgrimage.
After an excellent packed lunch (which Mark claimed as all his own work ! ) we then were taken to the Salt mines..the men in our group enjoyed this and it is a site to see although the ladies did say it was just a bit much maybe in terms of the walking and what was actually there and it made it a long day..Good in a way that you got these two main attractions done in one day but the ladies may have had a point.!!
All in all however a very good, well run day and we cannot recommend it highly enough, both the organising and of course the people themselves.
They also arranged airport transfers which were punctual and polite and the cost was reasonable.
