Our tour guide Sebastian was great, as were both our guides at the salt mine and Auschwitz! Everything ran very smoothly with very detailed directions. Our driver was also excellent. Would definitely recommend this tour to others.

Absolutely incredible and so informative. Filip was an excellent guide and answered every question we had. I would have paid £80 just for schindlers factory tour! 100% recommend and absolutely worth the money.

The salt mine is worth every trip. Definitely worth seeing. Very interesting information. Very nice and knowledgeable staff. Very good tour in German.

Jerry was an excellent driver who told us lots of interesting extra things about the places we drove through. Museum excellent too. Fully recommended.

Great trip, well worth seeing this Unesco Heritage sight. Some fantastic carvings!
