    Thank you very much for the two wonderful days in Auschwitz, Salt Mine Wieliczka and transfer to the airport. We always felt like real VIP's and were lucky to benefit from the enormous knowledge of Alicja Dariusz! Highly recommended because absolutely friendly, very flexible and exactly on the personal needs adapted tours!

    We were in Krakow with our three teenage boys for spring break. We did not have a lot of time in Krakow before heading to Berlin. Doing both of these tours in one day was perfect. We loved our guide and being able to see both Auschwitz camps was sobering but amazing. Everyone in their lifetime needs to see them in order to fully understand the magnitude of the Holocaust. The salt mines are mind blowing. Highly recommend

    A reminder of 'efficiency' gone very wrong. Worth the trip - can't call it enjoyable but worth the experience.

    Booked this tour via hotel and we were collected in small mini bus for the drive . On arrival we did not have to wait in line for tickets. Our guide was very knowledgeable and respectful I can only say you must go and see for yourself. It made a great impression on us. Good bookshops.

    Our family of three was picked up at our hotel by Alicja and driven in her very comfortable car to Auschwitz-Birkenau. She gave us an interesting history lesson on the way and make sure we had plenty of water as the day was very hot. She took us to a nice lunch spot after that morning tour and then drove us to the salt mine for the afternoon tour. We spent a wonderful day seeing these sights and would highly recommend this tour and Alicja as a guide!

    Alicia , our guide, was superior! she was friendy, knowledgeable and fun! WE loved her! It was a long day, and an emotional day due to going to Auschwitz.She told stories, not commonly known, of the camp and other stories of the area. Felt like we went with an old friend. Every detail was organized and she was flexible if we wanted to stop at a spot, etc. She made sure we had great guides in the camp and Salt Mine..where she did not go. great recommendations for lunch and for another day we had left open until we got to Krakow. DEFINATELY recommend her! And this tour!
