Full description
Follow a licensed guide on a poignant tour of the Auschwitz-Birkenau Museum and Memorial. After, travel to the Wieliczka Salt Mine and take a guided underground tour and witness beautiful chambers carved in salt. Enjoy a hotel pickup and a traditional Polish lunch on this combined tour experience from Krakow. Get picked up from your hotel and travel to the Auschwitz I Museum to begin your walking tour with a certified educator. Explore the remains of the Nazi camp's barracks, watchtowers, and crematoriums. With the help of the provided headset, listen as your guide tells about the ghastly Nazi crimes committed in the camps and hear stories of the everyday lives of the prisoners. Next, continue the tour at the Auschwitz-Birkenau II Memorial. Witness gas chambers and the remains of the railway which transported prisoners to the camps. After a lunch break consisting of traditional Polish food, drive to the nearby town of Wieliczka to visit its famous salt mine. Prearranged tickets will be waiting for you at the salt mine along with a local guide. Start the tour inside the salt mine by walking down long sets of steps, taking you 135 meters underground and through labyrinthine passageways, tunnels, and shafts. See underground lakes, 4 chapels, and unique statues carved by miners out of rock salt. Experience a unique place to visit and a must-see during your stay in Krakow. Once the guided tour is over, take a lift from the underground back up to the main ground level to meet your driver. Relax as you make the journey back to your accommodation Krakow.

    Was a well organised tour and good value for money. We arrived before the crowds and had little to no time to wait for our tickets/ entry into both the salt mines and Aushwitz. The tour guides were both good but at points it was hard to hear / understand them but that is not a fault of this specific tour as the guides were provided by the venues. It was very informative and eye-opening and I would recommend.

    Probably too much too take in properly all in one day. We found the Auschwittz visit quite clinical and very much turned into a tourist attraction and not helped by a guide who was so quietly spoken that you had to strain to understand her, despite having the headsets at full volume.

    We had a great day doing all of the tours. The driver was very helpful and the tour guides were great. We didn’t have to queue to get any tickets as these were all sorted for us. The dinner they provided was very nice and they were even able to cater for my boyfriends nut allergy which was great! Overall a great day and experience with amazing hospitality. Would 100% recommend.
