Very interesting trip. Although it is a long day both these activities are worth doing and if you’re in Krakow for only a short amount of time it’s worth combining them. The time on the transport (nice mini bus) is a good rest. Can save money by going on public transport but the ease of this trip made it worth paying the extra.

Auschwitz was very moving and informative. Everyone was very respectful. Salt mine was really good. Was very long and a lot of walking but there was many good stories told. It’s been the only museum that we’ve actually bought things from the gift shop. 10/10 Trip included transport and was very easy and organised for you.

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.
