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. Benefit from roundtrip transfer services on this unique combined tour experience from Krakow. Arrive at the Auschwitz I Museum and embark on a 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, 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. Sit back and relax as you make the journey back to Krakow.

      Recommended visit. It is very comfortable because they take you to both places. The guide to the mines fine, but the one to Auschwitz seemed like an audio guide, without emotion. Be careful which bus you have to go to because there are several groups, so you don't get lost.

      Great tour! The bus came exactly on time, our guide talked us through the day - he organised the tickets, tour guides and a restaurant for lunch. The bus was waiting for us after each activity to take us to the next place. Would definitely recommend for someone wanting to visit Auschwitz and the salt mines, without worrying about any of the organising!

      From start to finish i could not fault this trip all. Our driver was very good and made you feel welcome and at the same time ready for what was to come. Our guide at Auscwitz was brilliant, going into so much detail and at the same time you could feel he was deeply affected by it all.
