It was really good. They picked me up at 5:20 am to take me to the train station. The train left just before 6:00 am. Some one picked me up at the train station of Krakow, and showed me a little bit of the city before we met the rest of the group to go to Auschwitz. We took a bus ride that lasted about one and a half hours. Once there, we took a tour of two concentration camps for three hours and a half. We had a 15 minute break to grab something for lunch or check the souvenirs store. The tour didn’t include a visit to the museum. Can’t take big purses or backpacks into Auschwitz. We rode back on the bus and got back to Krakow about 5:00 pm. By then, it was dark and some places were already closed. We got to walk around the city, and see from the outside different places and churches. We got to check the Christmas market too. The tour ended at 10:00 pm at the train station. Back in Warsaw about 12:30 am. The last tour guide was very knowledgeable of the history of Poland.
Once some confusion about pick up time was resolved (phone was answered immediately, person was very helpful) the day went very well. Got picked up at hotel by a representative, driven to train station, got train passes and clear instructions... arrived in Krakow and again met by company rep, got clear instructions on how to catch bus, when to return, train to take back to Warsaw... our guide on the bus and for the tour of the camp was excellent, very knowledgeable, organized... after train ride back to Warsaw, again met on the platform by company rep, who put me into a taxi back to my hotel (and paid for the taxi !) all in all, an excellent experience...
Our driver - Andrew and our guide - Magda were fabulous. Very courteous, gracious, knowledgeable and kind. The salt mine tour and tour of Krakow are interesting and enjoyable. The details of our trip were confusing. Pick up times changed 3x and the pick-up place changed 2x. Our itinerary also stated that we had a ride from the train to our apartment and when I called, I was told there would be no driver. So the arrangement details were not reliable
Driver -czeslaw was superb! He showed us around krakow before taking us to the camp! Told us good places to eat and great tips! You made the trip so worth while. We were dreading the 6am wake up and the train rides but to the person who picked us up and to the driver you made it all worth it! One of the best activities I have done all around Europe! So thank you!
