Luke was our driver and tour guide, he was friendly and helpful. We first visited Auschwitz 1, then Auschwitz Birkenau, we then had lunch and then went to the Salt Mines. Our tour guide for Auschwitz 1 and Auschwitz Birkenau, was very informative and knowledgeable. It was interesting to visit the two camps and learn more about what the people went through. For our lunch we got a cheese salad roll, chicken pasta, wafer bar, apple, a sweet & a bottle of water, the lunch was really nice. The Salt Mines were interesting. I would definitely recommend this trip.

A memorable experience
tabarshinger, Sep 2023
Auschwitz tour was very impactful and memorable though moved at a fast pace, so it's helpful to read up beforehand as you'll be able to connect more with what you see. The Salt Mine is amazing and quite impressive.
Amazing day out worth every penny
Shirley_S, Sep 2023
The guides in both areas were extremely nice and very knowledgeable and made my sister & I’s visit to these areas really great. Would thoroughly recommend this day and feel the guides enhanced our experience
Excellent tours with very cramped seats on bus.
Pamela_R, Sep 2023
Visiting Auschwitz/Birkenau was a memorable and touching experience. Knowledgeable and passionate tour guide was very good. Salt mines were amazing--unforgettable. Only issue was that the shuttle bus seats were extremely tight and cramped-worse than any economy airplane seats. Tours themselves, tour guides and bus driver were all very good.
Alice_P, Sep 2023
It was a great day out. Fantastic trip. No complaints. The guides were very thorough and fun. The driver was excellent.
Great day
ella_g, Sep 2023
Excellent day. Picked up on time, host was friendly and the day was well organised. It is a long day with a lot of walking. Guided tour for each part was very well explained and guides were approachable for questions. Lunch was after Birkenau and was lovely. Included chicken pasta, ham, cheese and salad sandwich, apple, chocolate bar, a mint and a bottle of water. Vegan/veggie options were available. We were picked up around 6.45 am and arrived back for our hotel drop off around 6pm. Got a text the day before with our pick up time too
Fabulous experience in both places . Driver Olaf was really good and our ride to the two spots was very smooth and comfo

Amazing historical tour in Krakow
Tabitha_L, Sep 2023
This was a fantastic tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable in Auschwiz. And also very respectful. Giving us great historical info while maintaining respect for the victims. The guide in the salt mine portion was great as well. Sense of humor (which was nice after the somber experience in auschwitz) was appreciated. Beautiful mine and very interesting. Between the two there was A LOT of walking and stairs down. Worth the effort
Excellent tour

Summary of experience
Fiona_k, Sep 2023
It was all memorable guide was fantastic lunch was lovely pick up was perfect all ran to schedule pick up cars fantastic quslity
Yes, this tour is for you!
Eliza_C, Sep 2023
A fantastic way to do both tours in one day if you are short on time! I cannot fault the experience at all. An 8 person van took us to both tours, and the driver Mika was fantastic. Auschwitz was harrowing as expected, but the guide was just brilliant and so informative and respectful. Definitely enough time to understand and appreciate the severity of the history. The lunch was a packed lunch and given to you between tours. It included a sandwhich, pasta salad, apple and chocolate. More than you could need! The salt mines are fantastic and definitely worth doing. A lot of walking but not hard at all. Very easy and doable pace. The driver dropped us as requested where we wished in the city. This tour was more expensive than others but it was seamless and absolutely worth every penny!
Very well organised day.
Margaret_O, Sep 2023
We were picked up promptly at our Hotel and went to Auschwitz where we were given a tour of both 1 and 11 Birkenau. Very informative and respectful. Such a touching place to visit. After we had lunch that was OK nothing special. On to Salt Mines and that was another super tour. Overall the trip was super well organised and even tho we had a schedule, we did not feel rushed at all. We got dropped back to our hotel. It was a long day and a bit pricy but it was good to get both done in one day. Tomas was our driver and he was excellent.
Good tour
Johan_P, Sep 2023
Good planing and great driver with good info how everything will work. The tour guide was good to explain. Be warned that is long walking distance in the salt mine and the Birkenau. A short movie about the salt mine would be nice to see during the trip to the mine.
A must do for your bucket list
MARK_W, Sep 2023
What can I say about this? Well from pick up at our hotel to the end of the day where we were dropped back at the hotel was just a fantastic and flawless day. Both the guides at Auschwitz-Birkenau and the salt mines (both called Anna) were really knowledgeable about their subject matter and very approachable regarding answering any questions anyone might’ve had. Our driver (Tomasz) was just brilliant and got all of us to our destinations on time and was also very friendly and approachable. I just can’t recommend this trip enough. You must do it! Excellent experience all round and well worth the money.
Davena_C, Sep 2023
Auschwitz and Birkenhau a lot of walking. Guide did not know enough about Salt Mine to advise on lift etc. so my husband missed this experience. He could have done this had it not been for misinformation from tour guide.
Great experience
stephen_r, Sep 2023
Quality driver and guides...great day out Great value for money I would highly recommend the combined tour
Day trip you have to do!
Milo_G, Sep 2023
Well organized day trip that you should book if staying in Krakow. Nice driver and guides. We had a pick up in front of hotel at 06:50am, an finish trip around 06:00pm. Driver provide us a tickets for entrances. Lunch box was ok and we got it around 12:30pm. Best thing is that Aushwitz and salt mine are on different directions from Krakow and you don't have to think about public transport and changing lines and how to get there, just to enjoy and sleep in van, which has AC.
Excellent and moving tour
Stephanie_W, Sep 2023
Where to start, this is an exceptional tour I would highly recommend. We were picked up from our hotel and driven to Auschwitz where we met our guide who was excellent. We walked through Auschwitz at a good pace and our guide explained everything in clear detail with a lot of respect. From there we went to Birkenau and saw and heard about the conditions there. We were then given a delicious lunch. Our last stop was the salt mine which was very interesting. Our guide very good also. It is a heavy day which you need to be prepared for but well worth doing
CALUM_F, Sep 2023
We cannot recommend this trip enough! We received a text the night before and on the morning of our trip. Bus was punctual and comfortable. The guides at both the camps and Salt mines were very knowledgeable and spoke excellent English. The lunch was more than we expected and tasty. Overall 10/10 on all aspects
