We were picked up from hotel at 8am for Auschwitz and Birkenau. We were shown around by a guide with the added advantage of headphones with her delivering her facts of the sites. On the coach you watched a video of the insight of the atrocities of the Holocaust. This was a very moving tour and very well organised. It was quite emotional walking around the various buildings and trying to imagine what awful experiences these prisoners undertook. Everything was original which made the experience so moving. Seeing the shoes and personnel belonging s of the innocent people that were led to their death. We were then taken by coach to the Birkenau camp. I found the feeling of that place different from Austwitz as you see from old photos and films the people getting off the trains and being separated from their loved ones and being sent to different parts of the camp. We were shown the bunk beds where several people had to share them with various diseases waiting for their death. The wash rooms and toilets. So many of the buildings have gone but you still get that feeling of poignant insight into the Holocaust. This took about five hours all in all and very rewarding experience.

My wife and I took 2 tours with this company last week. The first was the Auschwitz and Birkenhau Tour. We were well looked after by the Discover Tour guide and driver. When we got to Auschwitz we were handed over to one of their tour guides. I believe her name was Anna. She looked after us for the Auschwitz and Birkenhau part. She was a very good tour guide who spoke good English. She had a passion in what she was telling us and was very emotional with it. She was very knowledgeable about the 2 sights and was not following a script like some tour guide do. The next day we went with Discover Cracow to the Salt Mine and once again we were well looked after. The company tour guide took us through the Salt Mine with one of the Salt Mine guides and once again we were provided with detailed account of the history of the mine. Both the Auschwitz and Salt Mine tour are well worth doing whist in Krakow and in my opinion Discover Cracow is a good company to do it with.

Extraordinary
I have rarely seen anything this extraordinary. You start by going down a 'spiral' staircase that is square in cross-section and which seems infinite. There follows a 2 km walk though tunnels that frequently widen into display areas, chapels, ponds, son et lumiere, caverns. It is one wonder after another, difficult to encapsulate in words or pictures. The return to the surface is, mercifully, by a fast lift. Salt carvings, salt chandeliers, Salt statues. Goethe apparently called it a 'wonder of the world' in the 1790s - I have to agree with him. Our trip was marred slightly by a guide who thought that his role was to tell jokes rather than introduce the mine - but the sheer profusion and scale of the exhibits shone through his frail ego. I overheard other guides who were excellent. It is absolutely fascinating - please go! I went as part of a group - a category not included below in trip Advisor's list, so I have had to tick 'solo'.

Ask at your hotel for a guided tour ( don't be tempted to get a man in a cab taking you there).
Discover Krakow - Day Tours . Were brilliant .
The air conditioned coach picked you up from your hotel at the time they said they would.
Staff spoke perfect English.
Dropped you off at (in our case The Salt Mines). You had a sticker so you knew your group. and which coach to get on after the tour.
Done all the tour tickets ( price was included in picking you up tour admission and dropping you off again).
Arranged your guided tour spoken in your language ( ours was English ).
You felt safe and well looked after.
Very impressed and highly professional.
Auschwitz-Birkenau Guided Tour from Krakow
If it's the only thing you do in Krakow...
...do this!!!

Fantastic tour: see beautiful countryside, learn things about Nazi culture that you've never heard or read, view the magnificent beauty of hundreds of years of labor in the salt mine.
Our driver picked us up at our door, spoke great English, stopped us at a great restaurant, and dropped us wherever we wanted to go.
One thing: you need a soft schedule that allows for 10 hours OR MORE. There are a lot of people in both locations so the timing is variable.

Amazing underground complex
The must do if you are in Krakow. The tour is about 3km walk through the network of caves - you start by descending approx 60 meters via wooden stairs so get ready for some physical excercise. The caves and corridors, which were created in the past 500 years of salt mining is a unique sightseeing - some of the rooms can accommodate hundreds of people. It is an exciting excurse to the history of salt mining.

We booked through the hotel on arrival into Krakow to go to Auschwitz and the Salt Mines. It was brilliant value for money and we thoroughly enjoyed the trips. Auschwitz was very emotional but something that everyone should visit if they get the chance.
The Salt Mines were amazing although be aware of the 380 steps down straight away and then a couple of hundred after. You do get a lift up (thank god).

The staff were very good for this tour. From the angelic faced tour guide on the bus, best looking girl in Poland to the very detailed tour guide. We had a informative video on the bus ride there. We then visited both large camps, the first with the gas chambers and then the main camp with the brick buildings and SS HQ.

Its horrific historical knowledge but has to be visited if your in the area.

Absolutely fascinating incredible place
A completely unique experience. The sheer scale and history cannot be overstated.
It's a 1 mile walk through the key chambers, albeit there's 200 miles if tunnels.
The carvings are incredible, and the cathedral in the middle is stunning.
The walkthroughs are well presented, and if you're reasonably fit with good shoes it's easy to walk around. Temperature is c15 degrees, air is fresh.

Absolute must do!
The tour is approx 2 hours long with a short break in the middle. It is very interesting and informative. Our tour guide was great. Toilets are free here but the will try get an extra tip. Loved this experience. We got a salt lamp from the stalls outside as they are cheap than the ones found inside! Would highly recommend this tour.

The saltiest of trips
When going to the salt mine I was not sure what to expect. What welcomes us was a maze of chamber and passages filled with sculptures and beauty. Only a 30min bus journey from krakow main square this is a must see attraction. Our guide Joanne was very knowledgeable and entertaining. I would definitely visit again.

We did the Salt mines tour in the afternoon, which was fantastic experience, lots of steps down, so people with walking problems would struggle. Dont worry you get the lift for your return to the surface. We were picked up from the hotel and dropped off at the end of the day.

Interesting and important experience
The guide was very knowledgeable and did a good job of conveying the gravity of the situation as well as highlighting the experience of the prisoners. This is a sad but thought-provoking tour that everyone should participate in if they have the chance.

A must for everyone visiting Krakow
