    My dad and I have been talking about doing this tour for years. We are both massive history buffs particularly WW2 history. To say we loved it would be the wrong words. It was life changing. Sombre, informative, reflective and sad. Our guide Sophie took us through with such respect for the many horrific atrocities that occurred over the two sites. Very well organised and so respectful. Everyone should go and see this in their lifetime.

    Our guide was excellent. She spoke with gravitas, had an emotional connection with the victims and answered all of my many questions. Unfortunately the salt mine was closed, by government directive, because of the corona virus.

    I've seen enough documentaries regarding ww2.....as well as the Holocaust museum in Washington DC (USA)....so it was quite meaningful to walk the grounds in person. The tour guide was well informed and took approx 3 hours to see.

    Auschwitz concentration camp was a network of concentration and extermination camps built and operated by the Nazis. It is a poignant story of the past and hits you straight at your heart. As I went up and down the various buldings and the a few streets of the yester years, along with my guideprovided by Viator i shrivelled inside me. How can humans turn to animals? i went to the town centre,at 7 AM for my pickup and travelled in a comfortable mini van with 18 others.I came back around 1.30 PM, had a quick lunch in the nearby Polish restaurant and was back at the pickup point at 2.45PM/ The afternoon tour was just the opposite-exhilarating to see the preserved salt mines and to hear the story of the miners in a very telling way. It was not tiring and was well worth the day spent.

    Auschwitz was powerful and the guide was excellent. The salt mine was fantastic as well. A great trip and glad I saw both on the same day. I recommend this company.

    We booked a number of tours with Discover Cracow Tours, either picking us up from our hotel or someone meet us at the hotel and walked us to the tour bus (not very far away). Our first tour was Auschwitz-Birkenau, an early start, whilst on the tour bus a film about the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau. The tour guide at Auschwitz-Birkenau was an amazing man, his knowledge was excellent, he answered questions and was very dignified in relaying harrowing details of what happened, he said go home and tell everyone about this place so those who died here are not forgotten. Before leaving for Kracow we had already decided not to do both tours on the same day as there was lots of walking in 27 degree heat, thank goodness the tour buses were airconditioned. Early the next morning, we were met at the hotel and walked to the tour bus, then headed for the Wieliczka Salt Mine. Wow, lots of steps, 380 from the surface down, in all we went down 800 steps, thank goodness for the 'fast' lift back up to the surface. Again the tour guide was fabulous, his knowledge was excellent and waking through the mines from one area to another has to be experienced. I can still taste the salt! A big thank you to all the staff, drivers and tour guides at Discover Carcow Tours.

    This is a place that EVERYONE should visit. An inspiring, heart wrenching and amazing day. Whilst I was initially concerned about the amount of visitors, on reflection, it at least meant that more people were able to see it, understand what happened and ensure that it never, ever happens again.

    Discover Cracow Tours were very efficient and helpful with pick up from our hotel on time for both tours. Staff were friendly and helpful with excellent english. A video was played in the minibus giving the background to the Auschwitz camp on the lourney there. Tour guide at the camps was excellent - there is a lot to see and a lot of walking in both Auschwitz and Birkenhau. Very moving and upsetting as you would expect but an unmissable visit. Salt mines also amazing with a lot of steps down and each chamber more impressive than the last. The lift back to the top is an experience with 9 of us crammed into a small cage. We would definitely recommend doing these tours on seperate half days. They both involve a lot of walking with little time for breaks or refreshment so doing both in one day would be a long day

    We did this trip over two days. Going to auschwitz was like going to a cattle market, it was very busy. The guide we had was good but sometimes found that what she was talking about we couldn't see as we hadn't entered the room yet because of the crowds of people. It was a three hour tour but could have spent longer there as we didn't see everything because of the time limit that we had.
    The salt mine trip we did the following day. I would fully recommend this trip except for the guide that we had that meet us off the mini bus, he was extremely rude and needed a lesson in people skills! One of the people in our tour asked if there was anytime after to look in the shops. His reply was if everyone agrees you can have ten minutes. If you are longer I will not wait for you, you can find your own way back to the bus. Arranging meeting points were not straight forward, leaving most of us confused. The tour guide inside the salt mine was great. It was busy but waited for the tour in front to move before explaining the monuments etc.
