Our morning driver was very grumpy!! Others said he was like that before he picked us up. He accused me of not reading my emails re our departure pick up, which I assured him that I did. Terrible customer service! He did not talk the whole drive to auschwitz either… the afternoon driver who drove us to the salt mines was 100% better!!

A really well organised, smooth running day! The driver was lovely, there were opportunities to get food and drink at intervals during the day - would really recommend this trip!
