      Todo muy bien. Hubo un retraso debido a que dos personas llegaron tarde al salir de Auschwitz y no pudimos hacer la visita en español de las minas de sal. Nos metieron en el grupo en inglés y reclamamos a la empresa y en seguida nos han contestado disculpándose y devolviendo os una parte del dinero de la excursión

      Firstly, Michael, our guide, was fantastic and we felt expertly and thoughtfully looked after from beginning to end. The salt mines were a LOT of steps, but interesting. Auschwitz was horrific - to be expected.
