Very informative guides. Both trips great value for money. Would have liked a bit more time at Birkenau to see more parts of the memorial.
A very Good Service. Picked up at our Hotel A well run and friendly service to both sites
This tour is a must for everyone. It was well organised and we were picked up from our hotel as arranged. The Tour guide at the location retold the prisoner's harrowing accounts in a sensitive manner and lead us through an accommodation block, gas chamber, crematorium and showed us the museum where the possessions found on liberation were displayed. Other areas were also highlighted. Fascinating but horrific. We were on our feet for 3-4 hours so comfortable shoes, warm clothes and umbrella are a must.
Sophia,the guide,was superb in this very emotional tour.
Everyone must visit this place.
tour of these sites was awesome. everything went very smooth and on time. I would recommend these tours to anybody who is on a tight schedule and wants to see as much as possible in 1 day. well done
Our experience with Viator was outstanding. We were very pleased that the bus arrived on-time at our hotel on both dates. We were also very impressed by our Auschwitz tour guide Dominica. She was fluent in at least three languages, and her knowledge of the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camps was very extensive. I would recommend this travel package to anyone.
Very impressive tour. The tour bus fetched us to and fro from the hotel, which was convenient for us. The tour guides were knowledgeable and made the tours interesting.
Very good tour. We were picked up from our hotel exactly on time and the transport and tour guides were excellent. I would certainly recommend both tours for anybody visiting Krakow.
A great trip, this was well worth travelling to see, very emotional trip ut guides were very good and explained all very well, didnt get to the salt mine due to illness in our group sadly
the Auschwitz tour was very emotional and puts into perspective the full size of what happened, good guides and transport pick ups were in good vehicles with great drivers. well reccommended
Great complete tour, good organisation, very efficient. Tour guides are very knowledgeable and great company, tours are organised by dynamic and motivated guides. I would highly recommend this tour for those who don't have enough time in Krakow - this is the perfect solution to visit two outstanding sites.
We had two days in Krakow, so we spent one day touring the city and did both of these tours the other day. This plan worked out great and both tours were top notch.
We felt this tour was really well done and appreciate the knowledge of the guides.
An amazing day. It is a lot of walking and a long day so be prepared. The tour does offer several opportunities for breaks however, and for purchasing food and drinks. The Salt Mine may not be a good idea for elderly or people with problems walking. It is a great deal of walking up and down stairs and is around a three hour tour.
Great tour but we thought that the tour was half day when it is actually an all day adventure. Great tour guides, very informative, just wish the website gave actual times that the tour is so that we knew they would pick us up at 7am and drop off past 7pm.
This was an amazing tour. Auschwitz-Birkenau was deeply moving. At Auschwitz, we were given head sets and our English speaking guide took us on an educational and emotional journey through one of the most tragic graveyards in history. The tour was long enough to see a lot of the death camp. Auschwitz is difficult to describe. Anyone visiting Poland should visit this tragic memorial/museum.
The Salt Mine was an extremely unique experience. First, it was a great escape from the summer heat wave. The mine was a cool 20 degrees c. The carvings and church was spectacular. The only complaint with this tour was that we waited in the group line for over an hour, but to make up the time, we didn't have to walk down the 300 stairs instead we took the scary elevator. If you have a fear of heights, the elevator can be an uncomfortable minute.
I suggest taking the two half day trips because you still have your afternoons free. Both tours involve a lot of walking, so it was nice to take it easy in the afternoon and enjoy the Krakow square. Wear comfy shoes and pack some snacks for both trips because there was no lunch and the tours didn't end until about 1.
Tour was great. Tour guides were knowledgeable and respectful on the first half of tour. The salt mine was definitely interesting.
A truly harrowing experience - this is not entertainment! If you're looking for some fun and tidbits of interest, go somewhere else. This is a reminder of who we, humans, really can be. I had a really hard time stepping into Birkenau - it was an effort to bring myself to walk in there. This was an experience to humble the most proud. I could not help but feel alternating rage and despair, especially because I had recently read David Irving's disgusting manipulation of history. This is a must for every human on the planet.
Great trip. Well organized. Lovely guide s all spoke very good English and were very helpful and insightful. Highly recommend!
Picked up from hotel with excellent guide. Day went very smoothly. A lot of walking which was fine for us but some people struggled
I think everyone should visit Auschwitz and Birkenau. What a humbling and moving experience. Our guide was incredibly knowledgeable and had even had a survivor of Birkenau on one of his tours who was able to give a first hand experience of what it had been like.
The salt mines were a bit boring and our guide wasn't great, she wasn't very informative and to be honest, 3 hours is a bit long. I'm glad I did the salt mines the next day as I think it would've taken the emotion of Auschwitz away a bit.
I LOVED Krakow as a whole and would definitely go back again.
