Start your walking tour with a certified guide at the Auschwitz I Museum, where you'll be picked up from your hotel. Take a look at the barracks, watchtowers, and crematoria that are still standing in the Nazi camp. With the assistance of the given headset, tune in as your guide tells about the shocking Nazi wrongdoings carried out in the camps and hear accounts of the day-to-day experience of the detainees.

The Auschwitz-Birkenau II Memorial is the next stop on the tour. Witness the ruins of gas chambers and the railroad that brought prisoners to the camps.

Drive to the nearby town of Wieliczka to see the well-known salt mine after a lunch break that includes traditional Polish fare. A local guide and pre-arranged tickets will be waiting for you by the salt mine.

Walk down long sets of steps to begin your tour of the salt mine, which will take you 135 meters below the surface and through intricate passageways, shafts, and tunnels.

Explore four chapels, unique rock salt statues, and underground lakes. During your time in Krakow, visit a unique must-see location.

Take a lift from the underground back up to the main ground floor to meet your driver after the guided tour is over. As you make your way back to your Krakow hotel, you may completely relax.

Excellent, smoothly run trip. Our coach collected on time with fantastic communication. Very informative and reassuring host on the coach. The tour guide at Auschwitz was extremely knowledgeable and set the perfect tone for a harrowing but important visit. Couldn’t recommend highly enough. Thank you.

The trip itself was really interesting and not normally my kind of thing but even I enjoyed it. We got picked up from our hotel and then taken everywhere and could leave our stuff in the car while we went to different parts of the trip. Highly recommended.

A really thought provoking trip to Auschwitz which was really well organised though I would have appreciated a bit more time at the 2nd camp to explore independently. Salt mine trip was really interesting too. Lots of walking involved, clocked up 8 miles overall during the trip

What a trip! Those two places are well worth visiting. Whether it's worth the money paid to the provider it's debatable. But definitely saves the hassle of organizing the trip. Easy to follow instructions from the driver, great guides in Auschwitz and Salt Mines. I do recommend this one day trip.

When buying the tickets for the tours we thought it would be great but actually experiencing it exeeded all our expectations. Visiting Auschwitzs was a tough experience but we thought it was an important thing to do to make sure we never forget. We also had a wonderful guide who showed empathy for the ones who lost their lives and to the once who suffered on the grounds, while doing a great job giving us lots of information.

Tours were very good and guides were very informative. It's a lot of walking so make sure your shoes are comfortable and broken in. There is so much to be shown, that at times it felt very rushed (7 minutes to eat lunch)! No time for toilet stops, drink breaks etc. I walked just shy of 14 miles across the two Auschwitz tours and the Salt Mines tours in one day.

It is worth the money. Not being anxious about the tickets, the transportation and the hours from one visit to the other (many Polish people do not speak English very well). The drivers and the guides were really helpful and nice people. Good snack on the break.

Well organized tour. They picked us up at the hotel at the scheduled time. Very comfortable vehicle. We went to Auschwitz, then had a snack on the way to the Mine. There we still have time to walk around before entering the Mine. Get ready for a good walk.

Amazing experience,skip the lines and great guides. However dangerous driving between activities, we picked the 9:00tour and were transfered to the 7:00 a day ago,there was no pick up from the hotel as advertised but a meeting point somewhere in the city and lunch was a lunchbox inside the van

it was a really early start (06:30 pick up) & I was dubious about the timing... we arrived at Auschwitz & it was fairly quiet. After the guided tour of Auschwitz I i figured out why the early start. Iwas very pleased we started early, there were thousands of people beginning their tour. We then proceeded over to Birkenow to tour that camp. It was chilling to realise the scale of the genocide that happened here. it is so important that the world NEVER forget what happened here & that we learn ...

In few words - Perfect tour. Starting from the driver Simon and ending Salt mine. Auszwitz in general very interesting place, guide told a lot with no rush. Lunch was pretty simple, but very delicious: sandwich, salat, fruits. Salt mine guide was funny person. Only positive vibes about this trip.
