On this tour, you'll visit two of Poland's most important UNESCO World Heritage sites Auschwitz-Birkenau and Wieliczka Salt Mine — in one day. Your day will start early, but this way you will manage to visit Auschwitz-Birkenau, the former Nazi concentration camp, and explore the Mine, and be back in Krakow by dinner time.
  • Take a hassle-free tour of Auschwitz-Birkenau and the Wieliczka Salt Mine
  • Stay occupied during the journey by watching an onboard documentary 
  • Guarantee entry to the often sold-out attractions
  • Convenient hotel pickup and drop-off are included
What to Expect
Your tour begins with hotel pickup in the morning. Once aboard your air-conditioned coach, watch a documentary about the Nazi concentration camps of Europe. On arrival at the Auschwitz-Birkenau State Museum, join a tour with an official guide, and learn about the history of the Holocaust. Then, transfer to Birkenau, the neighboring complex, to continue your tour with the same guide. In between the two attractions, enjoy a boxed lunch. For the second part of the day, explore the UNESCO-listed Wieliczka Salt Mine, one of the oldest working salt mines in the world. Descend to the subterranean tunnels via a wooden stairway, and explore chambers filled with salt carvings and statues. This guided tour concludes with drop-off at your Krakow hotel.
