It’s great to see it all in one day, it’s quite tiring by the end of the day as it’s a lot of walking. Great afternoon stop for lunch, breaks up the day. Salt mines tour wasn’t for us found it too long but was an experience to see it.

This was an excellent full day tour but be prepared for lots of walking. Our guide Carolina was very helpful and made sure the day went smoothly. The Auschwitz visit was very moving and the local guide informative and respectful. There was a stop for lunch at a nice restaurant followed by the Salt mines which were spectacular. There were about 800 steps on the route but all downstairs with a lift at the end to take you back to the surface. A long day from 8am to 7pm so be prepared.

From the minute we set foot on the bus it was an amazing experience. The trip to Auschwitz was very eye opening and our tour guide was fantastic. Our trip to the Salt Mines was also led by a spectacular guide. Our tour coordinator was incredibly friendly and helpful, she took us to a traditional Polish restaurant that was beautiful. Highly recommend
