    Very interesting trip. Although it is a long day both these activities are worth doing and if you’re in Krakow for only a short amount of time it’s worth combining them. The time on the transport (nice mini bus) is a good rest. Can save money by going on public transport but the ease of this trip made it worth paying the extra.

    Auschwitz was very moving and informative. Everyone was very respectful. Salt mine was really good. Was very long and a lot of walking but there was many good stories told. It’s been the only museum that we’ve actually bought things from the gift shop. 10/10 Trip included transport and was very easy and organised for you.

    This full day trip was excellent. We visited the Salt Mines first which were amazing, definitely a “must see”. There are a lot of steps and a fair amount of walking so you need to be reasonably fit. We then had a break of about an hour, we took our own food so had time to look around the town were the Salt Mine is. Next we headed off to Auschwitz, this was very moving and we learned quite a lot that we hadn’t known before. The tour was well paced for such a long day. The guides were very good particularly Berta our guide at Auschwitz she was extremely knowledgable and professional. If taking this day tour I would recommend going on one that takes you to the Salt Mines first.
