    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.

    A perfect combination of the two trips: the first emotionally demanding and extremely interesting. In the second you discover a submerged and unusual and above all beautiful world !!
