Excellent tour. Great guides that handled a very difficult subject very well. A must on both counts!
Auschwitz - This must be one of the most difficult tours to organise as thousands of visitors are drawn to this truly horrific place every day. There was some waiting around to be put into language groups for the tour and waiting to enter buildings but our guide struck just the right tone giving the historical details clearly and calmly while keeping us moving. A lot of walking so wear comfortable shoes. Informative and emotional tour.
Salt Mine - another of the most popular places to visit so more waiting but well worth it. The walk down the 300+ wooden stars to the first level created problems for some of our group - claustrophobia - but opened up a huge underground wonderland to explore with our very good guide. Again, lots of walking. Really good tour.
The tour was absolutely fantastic. The pick up was exactly on time and Annieska who managed the logistics of the tour was a delightful person making sure the pickups all went to plan. The lady who handled the visit to Auschwitz was highly passionate and knowledgeable about the subject which made the whole trip very informative. I cannot recommend this highly enough as it exceeded our best expectations by a long way.
The story is similar for the Wieliczka salt mines where again the logistics were just perfect, the tour was out standing and managed by a humorous and very knowledgeable lady. The mine is really mind blowing and in particular the underground church and carvings from the rock salt. The whole trip will remain with us for ever. Thank you!!!
Auschwitz-Birkenau was extremely moving and depressing but worth every second. The Polish government is to be commended for keeping this museum functioning so that we never forget the horrors of man's inhumanity to man.
Fantastic tours! Organised extremely well, excellent tour guides and a nice number in the groups, with a range of ages. Perfect length too and works out so well split between 2 days, making it less intense. Would definitely do and recommend to anyone going to Krakow!
We loved this tour. Quick, efficient, friendly, informative. Highly recommended to all.
This was truly a memorable experience. We were all soaked due to the weather but no-one complained as we could go away and have a hot shower and change of clothes.The thousands of people whose dreadful fate we saw proof of, had no choices. An appalling atrocity which should never be forgotten.
I think everyone should see what we have seen
It was a great tour experience
Both of these places are well worth seeing but for totally different reasons. The trip to Auschwitz was humbling and incredibly sad but the Museum is educational whilst respecting the dignity and humanity of the people who were subjected to such horrendous atrocities there. My only complaint about the tour is there is just so much to see and read that I wish it had been longer, that is not a criticism of the tour itself, but a personal observation there is so much to take in and I could have done with more time. The museum is so full of visitors that in areas where there is not a lot of room it was easy to get stuck behind other visitors and lose sight of other members of your party and your guide. I would recommend that anyone travelling to Krakow does go on this tour.
The trip to Wieliczka Salt Mine is amazing, there are a huge number of steps involved in this trip luckily all going down, but it is so worth the effort. Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable and extremely well organised and the carvings really do have to be seen to be believed.The tours were well organised and we were picked up on time at our hotel definitely a "must do".
Well organised with flexible collection from accommodation.
