  1. We would just like to say thank you not only to your company but to our hotel where we stayed for displaying your information booklet. Can certainly recommend the Super Saver Auschwitz Birkenau & Salt Mine if you are having a short stay. Although a long day it is worth it. Matthew & Alexandra organised very well and kept you fully informed about the day. The driver Martin was also most helpful. Would use and recommend you again.

    1. Hello guyz! We are more than happy to hear such comments. You don’t know how essential it is for us to make your stay in Krakow as good as possible :). Such feedback gives us a lot of motivation to keep doing it and improve! Thank you Mr & Mrs Lavis!

  2. We are coming (group of 4) to Krakow on the 24 th March. Would you be able to send any information and maps of the city please? Is there a shuttle from the airport to the City Centre, and how much will it cost please. We are booked into the Apis Hotel for 4 days:

    1. Dear Mrs Williams,

      I am glad you reached us. I will be more than glad to send some details about city. Here it goes:

      – Yes, there is a shuttle from the airport directly to your hotel with link here :] https://quicktransfer.com/route-from-krakow-balice-airport-krk-to-apis-159-787.html – Price is 10€ per person for shuttle so regarding 4 people I would recommend a private minivan since standard car has up to 3x people :(.
      – I have also sent a Krakow map directly to your email address with Old town and Kazimierz
      – You can also download free audioguide here https://krakowcard.com/audio-guide
      – All tours are available here: https://discovercracow.com/tours/ its good to book Auschwitz Birkenau in advance as places are limited for this trip.

      If you would need any help! Just ask me :]

  3. I am bringing a group of 15 college students (ages 18 – 23 years old) and 3 university staff to Krakow in May. I would like to schedule the Auschwitz-Birkenau, Wieliczka Salt Mine, and Zakopane Mountain Tour. We want to schedule these items as soon as possible so we have everything confirmed.
    Thanks!

    Thanks for any help you can give me.

  5. Hi is it as easy to use public train or bus to Auschwitz on a Sunday ? We want to book our own tickets for a visit, and would rather visit the camp on Sunday than Saturday. Thanks

  6. Good morning. We are a group of n. 4 people and we are interested in Cracow city tours and salt mines. We stayed at the Regent hotel on 27/11/2017 and we have to depart from the airport at 9 pm to Warsaw. So I ask for the availability on the tour required, day itinerary is the discounted cost for the group, with all that the fee includes is the guide in Italian. I look forward to thanking Antonio Bonifacio

    1. Hello Antonio!

      Thanks for reaching to us 🙂 I am Przemek, glad I can help you. So here it goes! Italian tour for 27, still available at 10:45. We unfortunately do not have discount for 4 people, but the price is good! You can set a pickup time for 10:45 from Regent Hotel. Tour takes about 4-5 hours so you will easily be able to get for the plane on time. All the feed, guide and a transport included. You can reserve a tour going on this site https://discovercracow.com/tours/wieliczka-salt-mine-tour—guided-tour/.

      If you would need any help, I am available :]
