The guide at Auschwitz/Birkenau was excellent. She was so passionate and informative as well as being a local from the same area as the camps. There was alot of hanging around waiting to enter the camps which wasn't the fault of the guide. 2 hours waiting and even then we would've had to wait another half an hour on top so we were taken to see the Birkenau camp 1st then back to Auschwitz after. By this time it was 5pm as we entered the Auschwitz camp. We did the Salt Mine in the morning (also waiting for 45 minutes to enter), but very good. A very long day that I'm sure could have been shortened if we weren't made to wait around for so long to get into the sites

It was a really nice tour. Our tour leader Anna is a great guide, she was very informative and friendly. The bus pickup was easy since we were notified for the exact location and time the day before through sms and email. Both places Auschwitz and Wieliczka salt mines are worth visiting. Totally recommend this tour.

Excellent service from start to finish. Auschwitz and Birkenau guide was amazing, took the time to explain everything but still gave us time to take it all in on our own. Salt mines are incredible! Again, another brilliant guide who made the experience very enjoyable. However, if you can’t cope with lots of stairs or get claustrophobic this isn’t a trip for you. A very long day when doing this trip but well worth it. Would advise taking lunch with you, there are places to buy food but time is fairly limited. You can’t take food or drink into Auschwitz but you can either leave on the coach or put in a locker.
