Rating 4.7 based on 45 reviews

Excellent tour day!
Pick-up service was well informed and arranged. Driver Konrad was most helpfull and kind, and good & safe driver!

Our tour guide in Auschwitz and Birkenau was just perfect! She knows everything there and the arrangements were really smooth. The audio system works perfectly and let's you have some flexibilty for your own interest points during the tour, and you do not miss any information - or the group.

Also similar arrangement was in use in the Salt Mine. All in all, interesting day and impressive sights!!!
Auschwitz & Wieliczka Salt Mine Day Trip from Krakow
The best!
As I was staying just a couple of days in Krakow, I was looking for an option that combined Auswitch and The Salt Mines. That's how I find Discover Krakow.
From the beginning they were really polite and we organized the pick up from the hotel via email (as I mentioned that I didn't have my mobile number abroad). And they confirmed the pick up the day before via email also.
The guide / bus driver was Konrad, who was really polite and spoke English super well!
In site our tour guides were really polite and explained the site really well.
Finally, if anyone is thinking in doing both sites (auswitch and salt mines) on the same day, I would say that this tour is the best. You don't rush at all, you have time for everything. It's a full day full of experiences.
Auschwitz & Wieliczka Salt Mine Day Trip from Krakow
Excellent and valuable tour
Due to a short stay, me and my girlfriend decided to book both Auschwitz and the Wieliczka salt mine tours in one day, Totally worth it. We were tired at the end of the day but felt like we had gotten good value for our money as well as informative and historical facts. The guide, a local named Conrad, was very helpful and friendly and I hope anyone planning to book this tour is lucky enough to get him as a guide. I sincerely recommend taking this tour, especially if you have little time to spend in Krakow
Auschwitz & Wieliczka Salt Mine Day Trip from Krakow
Great way to get acquainted with the city!
We really enjoyed our tour with Aleksander! After doing a ton of walking in cities before Krakow, we really wanted to rest without missing out on our sightseeing. This was an amazing affordable option. We got to see many major sites of Krakow while the guide provided history and significance. It was great to get to decide where we wanted to spend the remaining time we had there while seeing everything too. Aleksander was informative and even provided us with blankets when it got cold.

Had a great day!
Conrad was awesome, really helpful and friendly. It was so good being picked up and dropped off at our accommodation. Our vehicle was comfortable and it was good to have the video playing on our way to Auschwitz. Conrad took us to a great restaurant for lunch which was much appreciated. He did a fantastic job hosting us for the day!
Auschwitz & Wieliczka Salt Mine Day Trip from Krakow
Well organised and no hassle
Both our driver and guides were very professional and friendy. We had enough time both at Auschwitz and at the salt mines. We also had a decent lunch break. Those who intend to book this tour need to be aware that there is a lot of walking and if you have time maybe you should consider doing them on seperate days.

Auschwitz-Birkenau Group Tour from Krakow

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.
Auschwitz-Birkenau Guided Tour from Krakow
1st class tour operator
Our Group of 4 were picked up from our hotel on time arranged , our transport was a clean air conditioned mini bus ,our driver Conrad was polite very keen to answer any questions we had and also played a video on route of the history of Auschwitz, ,Once we arrived at Auschwitz we were grouped up with around another 15 people for the tour which seemed to be the same amount of people in the other tour groups,it took about 1hr 45 to complete the tour once the tour was over ,Conrad then took us to Auschwitz -Birkenau which is only a short drive, we were then taken around by the same tour guide in the same group the tour took about 1hr 15 the tour guide was excellent ,We could not have booked a better tour operator everything was 1st class .The only bad points was to witness the horror of what the Nazis inflicted on the poor souls who were murdered at Auschwitz .

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.

Overall a really good experience
This was a really great way to see the city if you are tight for time. We chose to do this today which was our last day, as we had planned tours the previous days. The guide/ driver was so helpful and so friendly. We unfortunately didn’t get his name, but whoever was driving the 9:30 tour today, was really great!! We purchased tickets separately for Schindler’s factory, which you have an hour in. At times it does feel rushed because you can’t stop and look at everything but you get a good enough feel for the museum. Overall a really good experience I would highly recommend!!

Best tour I have done in Europe.
David ran a terrific tour sharing his unique knowledge of the history of Krakow as we visited sights away from the main tourist hotspots. His passion, enthusiasm and care for his guests was at a level above that I have experienced from any other tour guide. I have done about 40 tours in Europe over the years and this was the best.

If you want a quality experience that you will remember Krakow for take this tour.

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.

Brilliant!
This was a great way to start our stay in Krakow. Highly recommended, as it gave us a true overview of where to find things in the city and decide what to do and what to see on the days that came later and even though it was extremely cold outside, in the car it was much warmer and we could enjoy the city. Do it, you will not regret it.

Everybody Should.
My wife and i felt compelled to do this trip as we have had such a wonderful life compared to the the majority of Auschwitz-Birkenau inmates who had none . The tour was well planned and carried out with enough information on conditions and the setting for this tragedy to give us an insight into what these human being were put through .
Auschwitz-Birkenau Group Tour from Krakow
Well organized, great driver!
I had a very informative & insightful day. Like a local guide were quick to respond and very well organised throughout the day. David, our driver was friendly, well spoken and did all he could to ensure we all had a superb tour! I would definitely recommend Like a local tours!

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.
