Brilliant tour from start to finish. Picked up from the hotel and taken to the coach for Auschwitz, with a tour guide to show/tell us about the history of the places and then off Birkenau. Had a packed lunch on the coach and then off to the salt mines. A long ll hour day but well worth it and very good value.

I absolutely loved this trip! Guides at both the Salt Mine and Auschwitz Museum were A*! Very knowledgable, spoke clearly and had a very engaging manner. Our driver was also really lovely and helpful - very informative, good at keeping the day organised and getting everyone off to the right activities. Overall the two experiences in one day, plus transport was very good value for money. I would have given the whole experience a 5 star review. However, the only negative was around pick up times. I had booked the 8am bus but was booked on to the 6am bus which I couldn’t make. The contact phone number and email had no response so I was worried I would miss out on the experience. I turned up at 8am anyway and the 8.30am bus driver kindly put me on the 8.45am bus. Needless to say this was stressful and this review could be very different if the 8.30am driver hadn’t helped me out. I don’t want to put anyone off as the tours and the driver were brilliant but be aware on the start time.

Both the tours were so interesting and lots to learn. The guides at all the tours had wealths of information and happy to answer questions which the group may have had. The whole day was an awful lot of walking so I would recommend people who are wanting to see both to do the salt mine on one day Auschwitz-Birkenau on a separate day just because it is a really tiring day but I would 10/10 recommend to do both!
