      Excellent tour of Auschwitz. Salf mine was good too. The tour guides at both places were very good. We would have preferred that the driver that took us to the tour wear a mask as we passengers did in the van. It would have been nice if the driver talked to us about what we were seeing on the drive to the events or about Poland.

      An amazing experience! I solo travelled to Kraków and I have always wanted to visit Auschwitz after learning so much about it in history GCSE. Visiting the concentration camps was very emotional and insightful. Was great to learn about the history that affected tons of people in the past. The salt mines was also insightful, a lot of factual information & a lot of walking! Was very interesting to see everything. Wear comfortable footwear and bring a bottle of water, the excursions involve a lot of walking. The group that I was in was a good size and the tour guides were very friendly and was always happy to answer any questions. This is definitely a must do excursion when visiting Kraków. I was out from 6am - 6:30pm , so was a very long day trip but really enjoyed myself.

      It was a great experience, we enjoyed every part of the tour. The tour guides had a lot of information about each place which was really good. Salt mines was a bonus to the day and would encourage more people to add it to their trip. The day starts early so bring a packed breakfast/lunch for hthe journey because the stop for food isn't until around 1
