This tour was so hassle free. We got picked up at our hotel and brought straight to the Salt Mines where our guide gave us our tickets and we joined an English speaking tour line. The guide was very knowledgeable and the tour was interesting. Then our guide met us back at the car and drove us to Auschwitz where we had a guided tour with an excellent tour guide called Agnes. Its a very sobering experience. Overall we had a very positive experience on this tour.

Would definitely recommend this trip, you get picked up and dropped off at your hotel, the van was spotless and very comfortable and the driver was very friendly. There is no waiting about to be picked up after the tour the driver is always waiting for you before you are finished. The sites themselves are definelty worth visiting.
