Great company to book through. Informed of everything every step of the way. Guides were really informative. Thank you so much for such a smooth service

The day before pickup we were told that we could not get picked up from our hotel, and sent another location that was far from us. However our organiser of the day was most helpful and very informative of where we needed to be and at what time.

The trip is well organised and the guides at both venues were very friendly and informative. I would recommend this 2 in 1 trip as going to the salt mine was a fun activity after a sad and moving trip to the camp.
