      Tour was very efficient and the driver was on time for all of our pickup spots. Eat breakfast before or bring it on the bus since you won't have a breakfast break. The tour came with a boxed lunch which was nice. Salt mine tour involves going down ~20 flights of steps, so be prepared for that. There is an elevator to take you back up.

      Excellent service from the tour company, and lunch was simple but really tasty. The guide for the Auschwitz tour was okay, but the one for the salt mine was amazing. I almost didn't go to the salt mine but I'm so so so glad I did. highly recommend this whole your!

      The tour of Auschwitz was very informative and really put it into perspective when seeing the remains of the buildings and belongings that are there. I really liked that the tour provides you with a headset so you can hear the tour guide a lot clearer and easier as we were in a big group and had we had been at the back this would have not been possible. I didn't have much of an expectation for the Salt Mines but I was WOWed when we dove deeper into the mines. What has been done over the years is absolutely insane and amazing, definitely a must see even for those like myself who thought it wouldn't be anything special. I only wish the tour guide had the same headset idea that Auschwitz had as I found it very hard to hear the guide at times and had to keep asking my partner what they said. My only real negative is the small bus we were on that was almost full, was very cramped and hard to eat your lunch in comfort on. I could see no way to open any windows.
