The tour was well organized and we had an excellent driver who genuinely took care of us throughout the whole day. We were a small group so they used a mini bus not a big bus. We also had 40 minutes lunch break in a restaurant close to the salt mines. Just keep in mind that the Auschwitz ticket does not include the gas chambers (only crematoria) and that there is no guide inside the van, just the driver.

This was a really moving experience. Auschwitz-Birkenau is naturally very upsetting nonetheless, our guide was absolutely brilliant and explained everything so well. She was very knowledgable and happy to answer all questions. The salt mine was beautiful and we really enjoyed it. The guide who accompanied us on the coach was very good and kept us informed of journey times etc. We were very fortunate that it was a clear and bright day. In the salt mine, the guide was very encouraging and very helpful.

Excellent trip, highly recommend. Our pick up and time did get changed slightly on the day before which we were fine with. The auschwitz 1 tour and guide was fab, my only issue was with the tour in Birkenau I struggled to hear the guide as we were at the back. Overall excellent the lunch provided was also great. Thankyou
