    Everything went well as per the plan and the planning of both places in one day was spot on. The pick up was on time and everything went smooth. Their communication was excellent too before and during the tour. I will highly recommend this one day tour with this company.

    From the minute we set foot on the bus it was an amazing experience. The trip to Auschwitz was very eye opening and our tour guide was fantastic. Our trip to the Salt Mines was also led by a spectacular guide. Our tour coordinator was incredibly friendly and helpful, she took us to a traditional Polish restaurant that was beautiful. Highly recommend

    salt mine tour was just perfect but due to late pick up of at least 25 minutes and spending a lot of time just for spliting the tour in 2 groups before auschwitz 1 we end up entering birkenau at 14.58 just ten minutes before the gate closed for entry the camp and we just saw something of the camp in a big hurry.
