Although this trip is approx 10 hours, it really didn’t feel like it. Visiting the two camps is an absolute must when visiting krakow. It’s very harrowing, so sad, thought provoking but essential to ensure nothing like what happened here ever happens again. Visiting the salt mines after the camps was incredible and lifted our mood. Again the time spent here went in very quickly and our group of five absolutely loved it. Chapel chandeliers made from salt are stunning! Our driver collected us from our apartment on time and made sure we met with the tour guides for each attraction. He dropped us back off at the apartment too. I would highly recommend this trip .

Brilliant day from start to finish. Driver easy to understand really good English we were thoroughly looked after all day no hassle with tickets and always on time. Took the hassle out of getting around even found us a brilliant restaurant to eat lunch. Lovely comfortable vehicle and a day we will remember for a long time.

Firstly, Michael, our guide, was fantastic and we felt expertly and thoughtfully looked after from beginning to end. The salt mines were a LOT of steps, but interesting. Auschwitz was horrific - to be expected.

A perfect combination of the two trips: the first emotionally demanding and extremely interesting. In the second you discover a submerged and unusual and above all beautiful world !!

Kept us informed of pick up times and confirmed the night before , driver and tour guides all spoke excellent English and where very knowledgeable and friendly.
