In general, we had a very nice, interesting and instructive day. Pros: - good packed lunch - no worries - price was right - super good tour guides at both Auschwitz and the mine Negatives: - the activity was brought forward 1.5 hours the day before and the pick-up location changed - no tickets at Auschwitz, Tour leader had to have a last minute get another ticket. - very long pause and then have to rush. Despite the few negatives, this tour is definitely recommended!!!

Good way to spend the day covering 2 main location from Krakow. However, it can be quite tiring to do both in a single day and if you have the time, you can split it over 2 days. Auschwitz would be a main point that everyone needs to visit to learn from the past, and is highly recommended. The salt mine was a very beautiful place, but visiting it so late, all the surrounding shops were closed which made it wish that we were there earlier. The guide Sebastian and Casper were very friendly and did really well, but just need to be slightly aware of the time, as at the end of the salt mine tour, the group was waiting out in the cold night until one of the group called them to check if they were coming.

The experience of the salt mines and Auschwitz was very good, the person who directed us also very well gave many details, and went for us at the scheduled time to the hotel, The tour we took is for a single day and if it is exhausting but recommended! !.
