Fantastic trip and well worth the very reasonable cost. Picked up and delivered back to the hotel in a spacious vehicle. The driver even did an extra stop for us to accommodate going to Schindler's factory. Had a private tour around the mines and the guide - Evangelina - was excellent. Thoroughly recommended!

Excellent and sobering trip. Would put it up as one of the 10 places you need to visit during your lifetime. I thought the Auschwitz-Birkenau tour was informative, well put together and respectful.
The salt mines are also truly amazing feature. Wasn't sure what to expect, but it wasn't the carved cathedral or grotto for sure! Great value.

Pick up time right on time this trip is not a happy one but one you must do to remember what happened in this time in history guide was very good with good knowledge of what went on here.when you go to birkenau it is hard to take in the size of this camp and visiting the wooden sheds it is very moving. Day two salt mines pick up good a lot of steps down to mines but worth every step cant not believe what the miners carve out of salt all in all great tours with great company

Tours were well organized. Picked up at our hotel. The guide at each tour was very informative with good English. Have your hotel pack you a lunch box for the Birkenau tour as it is long and there is no restaurant. So glad we took these tours.

We booked this twin tour just a few days before we travelled to Krakow and it was the best thing we could have done. The hotel pick up was spot on time, the mini bus was comfortable and the staff were really helpful.
Auschwitz-Birkenau is, in my opinion, something every person should go and see in their lifetime both to ensure no-one forgets but also as a really poignant view of how life must have been. The museum areas in Auschwitz 1 are incredibly moving and well thought out but the sheer scale of Birkenau is a real shock. This is an amazing tour, highly recommended.

The salt mine was completely different, we did this the next day. Don't book it for the same day as Auschwitz if you can help it, it's too much for 1 day. A really interesting place with some amazing carvings and exhibitions. It's a must-do for any Krakow trip but bear in mind there are a lot of steps so if you have walking difficulties I believe there is a slightly different tour available.
