Very professional

This trip is a must for anyone travelling to Krakow with limited time to spare as the two trips are in one day. Both give you plenty of time to take on the sights. Victor are very professional in what they do and will keep you up to date on any time changes. The lunch was very nice and consisted of a chicken sandwich with salad, fruit salad to follow and a bottle of water plus a thick wafer biscuit. Definitely us Viator again. Taking into account that these trips are together be prepared for a lot of walking.

Very well coordinated, accomadated my motion sickness request. Driver drove very nice, didn't feel too sick. The young tour guide at Auschwits was a little difficult to understand and the salt mine was very interesting. Bring comfy shoes!!! Lots of walking!

Best way to do 2 UNESCO sites in one day

You would only be able to do these two sites in one day with the assistance of a tour. The shuttle van was modern and air conditioned with a helpful driver. The included lunch had fresh salad and fruit, a big plus on other ‘box lunch’ tours. Obviously to be viable the bus was pretty much full, social distancing is not possible so don’t go if this is a concern for you.

This was a great trip. The scenery along the way is lovely and the driver put a video about Auschwitz-Birkenau on to watch. The tour is done in a sensitive but informative way. Our guide was very knowledgeable. Lunch provided was lovely. Salt mine was interesting with cheap gift shop buys and delicious ice cream! Thoroughly enjoyed the whole day.

A long day full of sombre moments and interesting facts. The tour operator was friendly and efficient. The supplied lunch was reasonable and much better that many others I have experienced from tour operators. The guide at the camps was excellent. She gave facts and comments from the heart that made the trip so informative and interesting. The Salt Mine was an interesting walk underground again with so many historical facts of interest. A bonus was a short visit to a tower in the grounds for a great view.

Prompt pick up at the hotel. The drive to Auschwitz included a video introduction - and photographs of Birkenau prior to many of the buildings being destroyed. The tour at Auschwitz 1 is very well done and provides great perspective through walking through the camps and seeing accommodations as well as materials collected from the prisoners. It's a very somber place. There was a short drive to Birkenau. Although many buildings were destroyed, the remaining chimneys provide scale. You leave with a much better understanding of what people went through - far beyond just gas chambers. The Salt Mine was incredible! The scale was something I would never believe had I not seen it. It was a very interesting tour and added some levity to the day. This was a day very well spent.

Auschwitz-Birkenhau + Wieliczka Salt Mine

Picked up promptly at our hotel. About an hours drive, on the way we were shown a film from the perspective of a russian camerman who arrived with the liberating troups to Auschwitz. Arrived swiftly through, shown arounx by a very passionate guide. Then back on mini bus 5 min drive to Birkenau, vast camp where that dreadful train arrived as you have probably seen. Harrowing but myst see. We should never forget. Then give our lunch very nice chicken salad and a sandwich with fruit salad and chocolate bar. Plus bottle of water. Back on the minibus for drive to Salt mine. 2 hour tour 800 steps down but ok lift back up! Fascinating extrodinary place. Again very good guide. Back in the minibus for ride back to hotel long day but very worth it.
