Full description
Come to a selected pickup point or get picked up from your address in Krakow (it depends on an option you choose), greet your driver and travel to Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial and Museum or Wieliczka Salt Mine first (the order can vary depending on a particular day and time chosen). Meet your authorised, live guide on-site and follow them into Auschwitz I where you will have a chance to walk on the ground of the former camp, built in 1940. Use a headset provided to let you hear the guide's words no matter the distance or group size. See exhibitions presenting shoes, pots and other everyday life objects belonging to people who were kept in this place. In Auschwitz II-Birkenau walk along the railway which facilitated transports to the other part of the camp. See ruins of gas chambers in which people "vanished" on a mass scale. Reflecting on the knowledge gained, travel with your driver to Wieliczka Salt Mine. Have a chance to eat the packed lunch that is included before continuing the tour. The mine is around 800 steps down deep. When you stop on particular floors on the tourist route you can be astonished by the salt sculptures and objects within it, made and left by the miners. Like before - the headset will let you hear the guide clearly when you listen to the history of the mine and observe carvings. When the visit ends - take a lift up and get back with your driver to Krakow.

    Small-scale transport, which is very nice and indeed skip-the-line. A bit confusing in communication because we were added to other groups on both excursions and not everyone had the same day program. It all worked out. Good guides and excursions that must be seen. Simple packed lunch with enough water. Definitely worth booking through this provider.
