Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Krakow Super Saver: Auschwitz-Birkenau Half-Day Tour plus Wieliczka Salt Mine Half-Day Tour. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
Our guides were very good and very pleasant. The trip around Auschwitz was excellent, our guide was very informative and thoughtful, it was obvious she cared about the job she was doing and spoke in a very gently caring manner. We thought the Auschwitz trip was very busy, to the extent of being rushed by the amount of visitors, although our guide did take care to cover everything. Birkenau with the same guide - although the camp has virtually no buildings, what was there was a stronger feeling of what people went through, the tour was not rushed, we were pleased we made the trip. This should never be forgotten.
When we booked the trip it shows as a half day tour, when in actual fact from start to finish it to all day. From the hotel 10.15 until 6.30 back to the hotel.
Our trip to Wieliczka was excellent very interesting well worth the visit. Our guide in the mine was brilliant and quite comical at times, again well worth the visit. This was as stated a half-day tour. We left the hotel at 10am and returned at 1pm
Highly recommended, both tours were excellent and shouldn't be missed if you are in Krakow so buying the super saver is well worth it.
Both tours were informative and went at a good pace, some reviews I read said they were rushed but we felt we had sufficient time on both trips.
It's also worth noting that currently Discover Krakow (the company the trip actually runs with) will do the transfer from your hotel to the airport for 60 Zloty rather than the normal 80 if you go into their shop and show you've booked this tour.
Another thing to note is you have to pay 10 Zloty to take photos at the salt mine but that's only about £2 so personally I felt it was worth while, but it's important to remember to have cash to pay it.
this is the absolute must. The salt mines are really interesting and well presented, and its a great sight to behold.
Auschwitz Birkenau is a very difficult experience, but extremely important. It is an absolute MUST.
I have heard many things about tours of Auschwitz from people saying they were rushed through etc etc, and this is NOT the experience you will have with this tour. It was thoroughly respectful, and gave everyone time in each place, and gave a real understanding of the horrors.
I cannot recommend it highly enough.
This was a "must see" for everyone traveling to this area and your tour guides exceeded expectations.
Tour guides were great. Transport to and from very comfortable.
Amazing history and sights
Both trips were well organised and well worth doing. The guides were very knowledgable and their English was superb. Would highly recommend.
This tour I was a little apprehensive about but it is worth going. It is very emotional but at the same time very educational and informative and very respectfully. The tour guides were excellent and very well organised. If you have doubts about going it is worth it.
Well organised and informative tour representing good value for money.
Both tours are fairly fast paced and good comfortable shoes are a must.
This was the most moving experience. Our tour guide was wonderful, was respectful of the area and impassioned on the event that occurred here. I truly recommend this tour for everyone. Although you read, see, and hear about Auschwitz, nothing can compare with actually being there.
On a lighter side, the ride to Auschwitz was quite nice. I loved looking out the window of the bus and seeing all of the cute homes along the way--with the lace curtains in all of the windows!
Extremely well organised. Excellent guides. Good value for money.
excellent company .collected on time both days (2 min early )..,Mercedes mini bus. guides were great. very nice, no problem answering any questions,No time wasted on both tours, Will def use VIATOR again.
The pick-up services were excellent. tour guide to Wieliczka Salt Mine was very good and informative. Tour to Auschwitz-Birkenau felt rushed would have liked to have had more time to read and study and to take in the atmosphere.
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".
