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 .

The driver (Kris) picked us up from our hotel at 6:30am and it took about 4 hours to drive there. We stopped for coffee and snacks along the way. We had a local guide there and after Kris brought us to Krakow. He was great and recommended some places to see. After 3 hours we drove home. It a well organized trip and I highly recommend it.

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.

We were picked up on time at the hotel with a very great and friendly guide and safely brought to our destination. It was a perfect organized tour with tickets etc. as promised !! Gladly again

Excellent way to get both sites visited in a day without missing out on anything. Driver was friendly, helpful, knowledgeable of the area and very acommodating.
