Very hassle free pickup and drop-off for tour. I guess you can save a bit of money if you find your own way to the museum and then join one of the organized tours but in my experience this is easier way to do things as the tour operator takes care of transportation. Overall we were happy with the way everything turned out. Auschwitz is a must see if you're in Krakow and have never been. Even my wife who doesn't really fancy doing these types of tours because of the depressing nature found it very interesting and educational.
The Auschwitz and Auschwitz-Birkenau is a very long half day - we didn't get back until after 8 - but well worth it. The guides we saw were all very knowledgeable and seemed to have a real concern about the place. Auschwitz main camp is quite somber and Birkenau is eerie, particularly when you realise that you are standing in the place where the incoming prisoners were split up - some going for the deadly shower within minutes.
The salt mine is stunning and a good few hours well spent. The standard of the guides again was excellent. I didn't realise that the tunnels went so far until we came up in the lift to find ourselves the other side of town.
Two little points though. Both tours involve a considerable amount of walking if you are to get the best out of them. If it's raining, neither of the venue's have much in the way of group shelters on the way in, so take something to keep the wet off.
Excellent tour. The guide was very knowledgeable and the day flew in. If you're planning to do both in one day - there is a lot of walking involved, but it's so worth it!
Iedereen zou dit eens moeten bezoeken.
De zoutmijnen zijn ook een aanrader.
Very humbling trip to Krakow, another one off the bucket list, been to Bergen-Belsen, guarded Rudolf Hess at Spandau Prison. Next The Menin Gate Memorial. The Tour was interesting and informative, the guide spoke as if she was reliving the ordeal. Thanks
Absolutely fantastic. Enjoyed both trips. Viator fab company to book trips with. All transfers on time, transport high quality and guides/drivers excellent and so professional. Highly recommend.
Getting shuttled to these places was awesome. Everyone must do Auschwitz, but the Salt Mines is just a tourist attraction. I wish I would have spent the day exploring Krakow instead of in the mines.
Great tour! Bus was clean, air conditioned and on time. Tour leaders were helpful, knowledgeable and organized. Glad we did tour instead of booking on our own, skipped all lines. Highly recommend!!!
Great organization! The tourist guide was amazing. And the history of all was something no one can forget. Fully recommended
Was delighted with our tour guide, very clear english and explained everything well
Auschwitz was very sad but a must visit if you are in Krackow . Salt mines were fantastic could not recommend it highly enough.
This tour was amazing, it was a long day but well worth it. Auschwitz was very mind provoking the guide was very informative. Salt mines are well worth a visit again the guide was very good and it was nice to see what can be carved out of salt.
We did this tour over two days.. My main focus was Auschwitz as four members of my family died there. I didn't understand that the two sections are quite separate ie the work camp is at Auschwitz 1 and gas chambers are at auschwitz 2. I needed longer at auschwitz 2 than a regular visitor would want..I would therefore recommend a private tour for anyone who has personal reasons to visit. it still worked out due to the sensitivity of our wonderful guide Barbara who stayed back in her own time to give me the time and Information that was so important to me. I can't thank her enough. if you do the super saver I think the two day option is the way to go as you would be exhausted doing them back to back and salt mine is a fun tour to lighten up after your day at Auschwitz. Excellent tour highly recommended and I Was lucky to have such an incredible guide.
For both trips the pick up was on time. Both tours had good guides on them. Auschwitz is very moving but should be seen. Birkenau is just so big I think it hits home more then Auschwitz to me.
The salt mine tour was very good and interesting. Make sure you wear good walking shoes for both tours as quite alot of walking on both but I think you can short cut if walking is difficult for you. Lots of steps at the mine but lift available if you struggle. Very good value.
Great To Appreciate, tour group possibly a little to big. You see everything that you would except to see, most memorable was walking into a and #34;Shower and #34;. Birkenau was Way bigger than expected, make sure you take your camera
I highly recommend this tour. Like most of the Viator tours we took from Krakow, the beginning and end were too rushed......didn't have time to pick up any souvenirs etc. because we had to hurry and get on the bus. But, the tours were great.
