A experience not to be missed. No religious reason for going on this trip more out of being so close and wanting to know what happened. Excellent from start to finish - efficient pickup from our hotel in a new mini bus pleasant drive to the first camp which took about 1.5 hours plus a video on the coach explaining what actually happened - a sobering introduction. Our guide Monica was quite brilliant giving an ongoing explanation of the facts and what happened in a passionate way having the experience of her grandfather being held himself in a concentration camp. Plenty of time to look around and ask question and to feel the cruelty of what took place. A long day, quite physical in walking round the camps in hot conditions. Comfortable shoes and bottled water a must.
Both tours were very well done and worth the time. Although it was a bit more walking than I anticipated, I would highly recommend both tours. The guides were very knowledgeable and spoke excellent English and answered all questions.
I really enjoyed both of the tours although it was one of the busiest days of the year at the salt mines the tour guide did manage to make our visit there enjoyable. Would definitely recommend these tours to anyone interested.
Well worth doing both these tours whilst visiting Krakow! Great value for money and the local tour guides make the trip memorable with their incredibly harrowing stories and knowledge!
My only complaint was due to a mistake in our pick up times but other than that I would definately recommend this.
Excellent service, staff very friendly, interesting and informative tours would highly recommend but could have done with a longer break between Auschwitz and Birkenau to get something to eat.
Very moving, interesting and thought provoking. No hiding anything. Took the children aged 21 and 18 would have not wanted to bring them much earlier than the age of 16.
My family really enjoyed the tours we had visiting Auschwitz and the Salt Mine. The guides were very informative and made the experience much better than if we had tried to visit these sites on our own. It was very convenient and easier from a travel perspective as well - not having to deal with parking, etc. The guides were very knowledgeable, friendly, and professional. I will recommend this to any of my friends that plan on visiting Krakow.
Very punctual hotel pickup, multi-lingual tour guides and two very engaging visits (albeit in two extremely different ways).
Both trips excellent with wonderful informative guides. Auschwitz was so moving and thought provoking..a must when visiting Krakow. The salt mines at Wieliczka were something else! They were unbelievable! Even the chandeliers were made of salt crystals! Not a trip for people with mobility problems but not to be missed otherwise. We were picked up on time as advised by Viator. Very well organised...thank you.
Really interesting and something you need to see when in Poland. Still feels very surreal and would like to thank the guide for the tour and all his information. Learnt a lot.
Excellent tour guide at Auschwitz-Birkenau tour. She was very knowledgeable of facts and very sensitive to what happended at camps. She took her time letting everyone look. Highly recommend.
Salt mine tour worth seeing, but a little like Amusement park with numerous gift shops and lines to wait to see things and for entering and exiting. Worth seeing but only a 4 star not a five.
