Where do I start.... I would 100% recommend Viator for this tour. We were picked up at 7.20am by Mihai the bus driver, very friendly guy. Our guide Magda then joined us on the bus. Again very friendly. We were shown a short movie about Auschwitz to prep us. When we arrived at Auschwitz we had another guide, she was brilliant and could tell us everything we needed/wanted to know. What an emotional place, with so much history. Another great tour from Viator! Thanks!
Had a great time learning about the concentration camp and the salt mines. Both worth going to. Good value for money.
Good tour. The guide itself from auschwitz wasnt great. I didnt think it was possible for a guide to be emotionless when taking tours through the camp. Other than that very convenient with hotel pick up and viator guides were very nice. We had Anna who was lovely
Hotel pick ups very convenient as was new to area and mini bus/van comfortable. Tour and local guides very knowledgeable. Overall two very good tours on separate consecutive days that we were glad we did not do in one day as there was a lot of walking.
Highly recommended. You would be lost without a guide to point out the really important stuff.
Well organised tour. Helpful driver and guides. From the horror of Auschwitz to the beauty of the salt mines was a sharp reminder of the best and worst that lies within man. A great tour.
Auschwitz-Birkenau was a very interesting and moving trip . The guide had an extensive knowledge of the history of Auschwitz-Birkenau. It gave all those in the group a greater understanding of what happened during that time.
Wieliczka Salt Mine was amazing. Our guide in the salt mine - Matt was fantastic. As well as explaining about the history and workings of the mine past and present, he had a great sense of humor which made the experience informative and enjoyable.
I am glad I booked both trips in advance as I went in the busiest time of the year and there were big crowds. The organised tour enabled us to meet our guide and proceed with the tours without the fuss of waiting. I highly recommend both of these tours.
Auschwitz trip very emotional. something everyone should see. very soft spoken and informative guide.
a must see!!
Salt mine tour was a blast. very cool. both temp, and visual!!
Great value for trips!
The driver pick up us in our hotel and very knowledgeable drive as well.Our driver bring us to our destinations safely.The Auschwitz-Birkenau is one hour from the town and salt mine is about 10 to 15 mins. from the town, is recommended when going to Poland.Its terrible to see the Jewish things,hair and the way they live during the war.
No hassle journey to site . Great guide . Something everyone should see . Highly recommended .
Both tours were run on time and I was picked up from my hotel on time.The groups are big,the guides thorough and speak through a earphone given to you.Big groups do mean you have to wait for everyone to start or end the tour or wLk from a to b,but this was not much of a hindrance.the buses are comfortable Mercedes mini vans.The aushwitz is a long day,the mines only 3-4 hours.Both not to be missed out in my opinion!!
We were picked up at the hotel and looked after well. We were handed over to english speaking guides at both auschwitz and wielicza for the actual tour. When we finished, we found our guide and transport with no problem. Guides were friendly and pleasant and kept everything moving without pressuring us. Although you can do both these sites without an organised tour, it was so smooth and easy with someone to organise tickets and guides. Well worth it.
