This trip was seriously so insightful and impactful. Auschwitz, we had the best guide Tomasz - so real and down to earth and really knew everything about Auschwitz, I honestly learned so much and his grandfather survived concentration camps so he had many stories and the whole trip just really was very eye-opening. The salt mines were also great and we had a great tour guide who was from a mining family again, was really engaging and informative - the mines are really impressive, some of the best I have seen and I have done a lot of travelling.

Alot better trip than the other trip we booked. We had a great day! The van air conditioning was brilliant and inside so comfy. The trip was made by our guide David who was so knowledgeful and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. Although there was a language barrier with us being Irish he took time to ask us questions about our life which was very nice. Nicest person that we met in all of Krakow!

Kamil was great, good energy and so helpful with navigating around and giving us tips of what to do and where to go. The trip is as described, it is relaxing, fun and stunning scenery - what more could you ask for!

Had the best day doing a day trip to Zakopane!! Very convenient pick up point, Matthew our host couldn’t have been lovelier and so helpful :) Highly recommend if looking for a day trip from Krakow!!

It was a unbelievable day and very informative however towards the end of the day I felt rushed during the salt mines. As if the coach was on a tight schedule but apart from that it good
