Cannot fault a single aspect of this trip.

Text message 24 hours before confirming the pickup time from the hotel. They were there exactly on time. Tickets to Auschwitz and the salt mines were sorted quickly and efficiently with clear detailed instructions on pickup after the tour. Packed lunch was of high quality too. They even arranged a separate mini-bus to collect part of the group from the salt mines, splitting the group into 2 smaller groups thus ensuring everyone returned to their hotel quicker. All done by friendly drivers. Nothing was too much trouble!

The tour guides were both excellent. Lucasz at Auschwitz-Birkenau was superb. Knowledgeable and informative, he spoke with a quiet authority that seemed perfect for the sobering information he was relaying. Kinga at Wieliczka Salt Mine relayed a great deal of information and clearly had genuine enthusiasm for her job

My partner and I booked this trip before travelling to Krakow due to the amount of positive reviews - it DID NOT disappoint! It was well organised from start to finish, couple of hiccups in terms of waiting 10 or so minutes extra on tour guide and traffic en route to the salt mine, however this really was nothing given how much we enjoyed the trip.

Our driver Tomasz was absolutely brilliant, very accommodating and also very funny.

We got picked up outside our hotel at 06:30, picked a few others up and then set off to Auschwitz. It was a lengthy drive (over an hour) but the documentary made this go in fast! Our tour guide for Auschwitz 1 and Auschwitz 2 - Birkenau (I did not catch her name) was lovely and clearly very knowledgable. We both feel we learned a great deal even having researched about Auschwitz before.

Lunch was provided at around 12:30hrs or so, this was a very good lunch which included a roll, pasta salad, apple, wafer bar and a bottle of water. There is also a restaurant that you can purchase more or something else from.

Then off to the salt mines, this was a lengthy drive, around 1hr 40mins however most of us seemed to have a nap on the bus since it was such an early start to the day and there was a lot of walking. The bus is comfortable too with air con which we needed as it was a beautiful day!

On arrival to the Salt Mines my partner and I were extremely impressed with this aspect of the tour. We did not know if we would enjoy it or find it as interesting, but again our tour guide (?Paul) was outstanding. He was interesting, passionate and also VERY funny which helped lighten the tour.

We were then dropped back off at our hotel. We arrived back for around 17:30hrs, so it was a very long day however I cannot stress how much enjoyment we got out of it.

Highly recommend this trip from Mr Shuttle, it is worth every penny (and more)… also, since there is a lot of walking, comfortable footwear is a must.

Superb and well organised day trip.
Pick up from the hotel (we had a very early start with a 6.30 pick up) in a small people carrier to meet other people carries with others at the minibus allowed a quicker departure rather than a mini bus collecting from 15+ hotels. The minibus was obviously new and well equipped with food tray and USB sockets. Very clean and tidy.
The whole day was very well thought out. There was small breaks throughout the day and the various tours to allow for a toilet stop or a quick gift shop look.
The lunch that was provided was very good, a baguette, pasta salad, apple, chocolate wafer bar and a bottle of water. Very tasty.
The driver was very good at his job and made sure we stayed together while waiting for the various tour guides. Lanyards issued out at the start made it easier for us to spot others from our tour group if we straggled behind at any point.
Extremely good value for money. I cannot recommend highly enough.

Advertised as a coach journey with a short movie on the Nazis to set the scene. No movie and we travelled in a minibus so 3 hours or so travelling backwards which was disappointing. Auschwitz and the Salt mines were amazing though. Driver was very polite and gave good clear instructions on timings and directions. Uplift for the lunch was a lot bearing in mind it was for a sandwich, pasta, apple and water but having said that lunch is needed as it’s a long day so depends if you want to pay for convenience. Your guides were excellent but I presume that’s on the day and who you get. We were lucky! An excellent day out though…

Fantastic well organised tour. Guides were exceptional even with the somber information they were providing.

Lunch was lovely and filling, welcomed after such an early start.

Salt mines were fantastic although I would say our guide had a great sense of humour but I wish he waited for us all to join the group before sharing information.

Overall the best value for money tour that I have been on.

I also use Mr Shuttle for pick ups to and from the airport which were prompt and the drivers took time to answer questions.

This was a very well organised tour. We were picked up from our hotel at 6.55am in a small mini-bus and driven for five minutes to rendezvous with the tour bus. This was a fairly luxurious Mercedes vehicle, about 40 seats, with comfortable reclining seats and air conditioning. There were a little under 30 on the trip, I think. First stop was Auschwitz where we were handed over to our official guide, who was excellent. Then Birkenau, a short bus ride away, with the same guide. Generous packed lunches were provided, after which we set off for the salt mines, and were handed over to one of the official guides there. Lots of walking in the hugely extensive underground system, but plenty of stops along the way, and not too tiring. A lift - capacity of 17, I think - brings you back to the surface which, by the way is c400 metres from the start of the tour. Make sure you know how to get back to the bus! Drop off near our hotel was at about 6pm. All three venues are well worth visiting, and this tour is a great way to do it comfortably in one day. Highly recommended!

Was recommended this tour company by a friend and they didn’t disappoint. We booked taxi transfers from the airport to our hotel and back and also the full day tour to Auschwitz/Birkenau and the Salt Mines. All drivers were excellent and we landed very lucky with our tour guides at both locations. Timings were perfect as no other groups in our vicinity so was able to clearly hear both guides who really seemed to love their jobs.

Lunch was provided before travelling to the Salt Mines and consisted of a sandwich, pasta salad, bottle of water, piece of fruit and a wafer biscuit.

Wouldn’t hesitate to use Mr Shuttle again for other trips if we return to Krakow in the future

Honestly we recommend going on this trip, it’s so worth doing it’s an emotional, eye-opening experience that gives you a very slight insight to what they went through. The whole shuttle team and both guides at each stops were amazing, they really looked after you and provided you with everything you needed. The lunch they provided was huge definitely enough to keep you going throughout the day!! Be prepared to do a lot of walking and definitely dress for the occasion.

My boyfriend and I booked to go to Auschwitz because we’re both very interested in the history behind it and we were not disappointed. It’s a long day (you do get lunch and there are plenty of opportunities to go to the toilet) but it’s 100% worth it. You get picked up from your hotel and they message you the day before and the day of to make sure the pick up location is correct and they drive you there.

The drive takes a couple of hours in a comfy minibus (from central Kraków) and we watched a short film about Auschwitz during the drive. Your bus is then mixed with another tour bus and you get an earpiece so you can hear your group’s guide - they then take you through Auschwitz 1 & Auschwitz 2 (a short drive away). Then you have lunch back in the cafe at Auschwitz 1 and a break.

After the break is over, you’re back on the minibus to get to the salt mines which takes around 1h 40. You meet a new guide but stay in the same group from earlier and explore the mines. They are so fascinating that the 2 hours (ish) you spend there go so quickly. In fact the whole day went so quickly because we were all so captivated by the history behind it all.

I would definitely recommend doing this tour and booking in advance as it’s great value for money compared to booking a tour once you’re already in Kraków.

We booked this a few weeks beforehand and the driver WhatsApped me a few times to agree times and to offer a packed lunch which we purchased and was good value. The vehicle was good (Mercedes van) with air conditioning. The visit was in three parts. Firstly, Auschwitz which was emotional, educational and heart warming. The guide was excellent. Then the second visit to Birkenau which was equal to Auschwitz. Lastly to the salt mines which was underwhelming in comparison. Going underground over 100 metres with various stops but the guide didn’t convince me with much variety aside from various salt carvings. Also, a lot of walking which after the morning walking made for a long day and not recommended for the unfit.

The company arranging the visits really good with nice personnel.
