Explore the remains of the Nazi camp's barracks, watchtowers, and crematoriums. With the help of the provided headset, listen as your guide tells about the ghastly Nazi crimes committed in the camps and hear stories of the everyday lives of the prisoners. Next, continue the tour at the Auschwitz-Birkenau II Memorial. Witness gas chambers and the remains of the railway which transported prisoners to the camps. After a lunch break consisting of traditional Polish food, drive to the nearby town of Wieliczka to visit its famous salt mine. Prearranged tickets will be waiting for you at the salt mine along with a local guide. Start the tour inside the salt mine by walking down long sets of steps, taking you 135 meters underground and through labyrinthine passageways, tunnels, and shafts. See underground lakes, 4 chapels, and unique statues carved by miners out of rock salt. Experience a unique place to visit and a must-see during your stay in Krakow. Once the guided tour is over, take a lift from the underground back up to the main ground level to meet your driver. Relax as you make the journey back to your accommodation Krakow.

    We were picked up directly from our hotel and Tomasz the driver was helpful and friendly from the start. He made it clear where we should meet him after each activity and walked you to your guide at the start. The tour guide at Auschwitz was very knowledgeable and approachable with any questions. Lunch was provided and very good. The tour guide Peter at the Salt museum was great, he made sure every one could see and hear him and was very funny. Overall was a great day and would recommend it.

    All the tour was great and as scheduled.Even from the beginning the first driver arrived at the exact time that he set.Both guides at Auschwitz and Salt Mine were excellent and professional but they also made some fun or some notice about the place when there was available time.And both of them were necessary so we didnt miss any single detail of both places.And last but not least our main driver to the sightseeings was superb on driving skills on answering whatever we asked and on trying to accomplish any request. We hardly recommend this tour with this agency (Mr Shuttle)

    it was a really early start (06:30 pick up) & I was dubious about the timing... we arrived at Auschwitz & it was fairly quiet. After the guided tour of Auschwitz I i figured out why the early start. Iwas very pleased we started early, there were thousands of people beginning their tour. We then proceeded over to Birkenow to tour that camp. It was chilling to realise the scale of the genocide that happened here. it is so important that the world NEVER forget what happened here & that we learn from it. i was very impressed with the way the guide & the museum cinvey the facts of what went on here. i would highly recommend this tour.
