A well organised trip....
Hannah_B, May 2022
A well organised trip. The coach driver was accommodating and really informative guides in both tours.
Full experience of emotions 👍
Teresa_M, May 2022
Just an emotional day well worth going. The Salt mines were amazing both tour guides that we had were very informative and passionate about their jobs. The lunch that was laid on was very yummy 😋 there was lots of food not just a sandwich.
Auschwitz/ Birkenau
Philip_C, May 2022
The tour guide at Auschwitz/ Birkenau was extremely passionate in her presentation and affordable time for questions from the group. The bus driver was very helpful and polite. The bus was extremely comfortable and the short video on board gave an insight into what to expect and experience on the tour. A lovely lunch was provided. My wife daughter and I found the experience very moving.
Great company to facilitate these tours
Kevan_L, May 2022
Really good on communicating and schedule, very friendly driver and great tour guide. The lunch was surprisingly good as well, substantial enough to fuel a LOT of walking. The salt mine was fascinating! Auschwitz is powerful, an important reminder of the past.
Def 5* service
Colette_O, May 2022

Claire_J, May 2022
Excellent trip and highly recommended. Very well organised, excellent lunch and great that we could visit auschwitz and salt mines in one trip. Fantastic tour guide at Auschwitz-Birkenhau. Fantastic value for money
Worth doing
Catherine_H, May 2022
The whole day ran very smoothly from pick-up to drop off at my hotel. You need good mobility and stamina as there’s a lot of walking at both places and an enormous staircase down into the mine. All worth it
Great Experience
Ken_R, May 2022
Excellent value for money and the best way to do both tours. Lunch was adequate. Be prepared to do a bit of walking and wear adequate footwear/clothes. Walked approximately 9 miles
Amazing tour. Needed help...
Emma_T, May 2022
Amazing tour. Needed help with a few details and they always returned my messages super fast. Would highly recommend.
Fantastic day from start to finish
Sarah_M, May 2022
Great day that was helped by the great knowledgeable staff throughout the entire day. Just be prepared for some walking.
Once in a lifetime experience
Sarah_L, May 2022
An excellent trip with two great tour guides. The tour guides gave really informative information and interesting detail about Auschwitz and the Salt mines. The lunch included was delicious. It is important to wear comfortable shoes because you will be walking about 10km. I would highly recommend this tour.
Good tour, but the driver was a rude person
Rimma_T, May 2022
The tours in Auschwitz- Birkenau and Wieliczka Salt Mines were great. Both tour guides were amazing. Knew a lot. It was great to be a part of it. What I didn't like was that I was told that the hotel pick up will call me and I will go down to meet them. It didn't happen. While I was waiting for the call, the guy called yelled at me for being late. Then when we got to Auschwitz, the driver told us to get coffee and use bathroom. There were huge lines for both. I was 2 minutes late from the meeting time and when I came I apologized. What the driver Tomasz did, he insulted me in front of everyone saying: "Hey lady you are late like this morning. We have been waiting for you. I am not going to wait for you anymore." Then he threw my ticket at me. He was very disrespectful and rude. After every time we will get on the bus, he would look at me and tell "good you are on time". At the end he said bye to everyone except me. I would never recommend this tour to my friends just because of that driver. He was not professional, drive like crazy and treated a customer disrespectful. I wanted to get refund since I didn't deserve it, but I also understand that the 2 amazing tour guides need the money. I would suggest the company to fire the driver and hire a nicer person. I still wait for an apology from him.
A must for everyone young or old
Fiona_K, May 2022
This is a long walk, and emotionally harrowing, be prepared for both. It is a story we all know but the reality hits you like a sledgehammer.
Enjoyable day
William_P, May 2022
Such a knowledgeable English speaking guide. Excellent packed lunch. Very worthwhile trip. But a lot of walking and a long day
Bobby_W, May 2022
Great day out. Would recommend. Lunch was good and the whole trip was very organised and efficient ..
A Memorable Day
Laura_W, May 2022
Well organised tour, driver and guide were very good. I’ve read reviews on here saying the driver does not arrive or wait which was not the case. We arrived to pick someone up from their accommodation, they were not outside and the driver waited and tried to contact them (still would advise you to be on time however) auschwitz was emotional but I would highly recommend everyone to go. The salt mines were fun and lightened the day. The location of the salt mines is very beautiful also with a nice park/ grass area. Be prepared for lots and walking and an early start. Lunch was lovely and fresh and they gave us more food than I expected.
Combined tour maybe a LOT for one day
Michael_M, May 2022
Auschwitz-Birkenau trip was worth every penny. Loved that pick-up and drop-off from my hostel was included. After the tour, Tomas (from Mr. Shuttle) told me I’d picked up by another guy to take me back to the hostel. That driver scared me because he drove crazy fast on the highway. He was polite but I just wondered if we’d be killed before he got me to the hostel! Tomas was entertaining, a careful driver, and had great lunches, that were included, waiting for us between tours of the camps and the salt mines. Our guide at the camps (same girl for both) was professional, knew her subject matter, and was easily understood. We also had the use of headphones to hear her, which I HIGHLY recommend for ANY tour you take. It allowed us to linger on some displays while she walked on ahead and we could still hear her. I would’ve loved to stay longer at some displays but didn’t want to miss what she was explaining on the next one. There is LOTS of walking but also plenty of breaks. The salt mines were only OK. Our guide had a HEAVY polish accent and I could only understand about 1/3 of what he said. He didn’t wait for us to be gathered before he started speaking, and there were no headphones. The tour felt rushed but just wasn’t that interesting anyway. Wouldn’t recommend it.
