    Our driver - Andrew and our guide - Magda were fabulous. Very courteous, gracious, knowledgeable and kind. The salt mine tour and tour of Krakow are interesting and enjoyable. The details of our trip were confusing. Pick up times changed 3x and the pick-up place changed 2x. Our itinerary also stated that we had a ride from the train to our apartment and when I called, I was told there would be no driver. So the arrangement details were not reliable
