Auschwitz & Salt Mine Tour
About Auschwitz & Salt Mine Tour
For those of you who are a bit pushed for time, but still want to see Krakow’s two most-visited sites, our one-day visit to Auschwitz and the Salt Mines is the answer. The choice to visit Auschwitz is a difficult and personal one, but few who do will not be left profoundly affected. The town of Oswiecim (Auschwitz) is about an hour and a half journey by bus from Krakow, and a visit to both Auschwitz and the nearby Birkenau (Auschwitz II) reveals the full extant of the Nazi ‘Final Solution’. The camps are still an indelible part of today’s world, and visiting them is both emotional and educational.
Our day will also take in the spectacular subterranean wonders of the Salt Mines at Wieliczka, which include underwater lakes, chapels carved completely out of salt, and an extensive network of tunnels and chambers.
We will drive you to the museum at Auschwitz and Birkenau from Krakow, to the Salt Mines at Wieliczka and back to Krakow. We will also arrange for you to have a tour with museum guides at both locations – all are registered guides and experts in their field.
As always, we offer individual tours, free of overcrowded buses and full of valuable insider information – on site and on the way there! Our guides are knowledgeable and friendly locals and will make sure you get the most out of your tour.

Long but great day out visiting Auschwitz, Birkenau and Salt Mine. Lunch at Auschwitz wasn’t particularly appetising (chewy cheese and tomato baguette). Tour guides at each location were knowledgeable and although the tours were hurried, there was sufficient time to see everything. No free time to explore Auschwitz or Birkenau but in fairness you probably got to see most of the things. The chapels in the Salt Mine were amazing as were the other sculptures. All in all, a very informative day.

Good chauffeur and guide.
Also the local guides were knowledgable and had interesting things to tell.

Very interesting tour. Did not expect the Salt Mines to be as interesting and the carvings the miners created were mind blowing especially the chapel and the salt lake. If you visit Krakow this is a must trip. Auschwitz tour was also very interesting. This is a place you must visit to see what the Jews went through and for a history lesson. Both guides for Auschwitz and the Salt Mine were brilliant.

What an amazing contrast between the inhuman destructiveness of man and the creative craving to make beauty where only rock existed! Our guides were very knowledgable and interesting. An excellent day.

So well organised and took the pressure off us so we could just enjoy the places we visited
Jorge Ferreira 25th Jun 2019
Everything went great, but the snack provided could be a little better for the price paid by the all day

Very well organised with a rally nice driver who couldn’t be helpful enough. He explained what we would do that day and everything he had stated would happen did. We had plenty of time to browse the gift shops and did not feel rushed at all .

The Auschwitz tour was excellent. Really good tour guide and the service provided by Patrick, the taxi driver was brilliant. He was punctual and had everything under control. The Salt Mines was good too, but we did prefer Auschwitz. We would definitely recommend these tours and your company as service was excellent.

Amazing tour, Auchwitz although very emotional was an experience I believe everyone should do. The salt mine is a hidden gem.
