We had the best driver ever Lukas made us all feed at ease , he didn't rush us, we never felt like we were in a hurry to get back to the bus even tho we were on a time schedule, he was really knowledgeable and very helpful with areas and locations. would definitely recommend booking with this company again the next time we visit krakow

Highly recommend this tour. To start off - great communication from the organisers. Very clear and precise on all details at all points before and during the tour. Easy pick up organised. We were picked up in a very comfy, clean and air conditioned bus. Our driver Michael was very well spoken and had great humour throughout our trip. He was very helpful and catered to any needs we had during the trip. Everything we wanted to see was covered in this trip and we learned a lot whilst enjoying it. Very informative and insightful. Would recommend this trip and company to anyone looking for a tour of any activities around krakow. 10/10

Very well organized with excellent communication from the company. Yes it is a long day, but we had a number of breaks throughout. As this trip did not include lunch, I would highly recommend bringing food (I arranged a box lunch from our hotel). Tour guide at Auschwitz was excellent, the Salt Mine Tour was ok (English not as good, and felt a little more rushed). Having done both tours previously I know this has nothing to do with the tour provider. Driver was fantastic and let us know what was going to happen and where we would meet. Would book with them again
