Description

Tour to Auschwitz and Wieliczka Salt Mine is a full day tour from Krakow provided by an air-conditioned Mercedes van and group tour guides on the touristic sites.

Your group will be picked up from your accommodation in Krakow by our English-speaking driver around 8:30am to 9:30am. Pick up time can be scheduled flexibly upon booking and depends on the location of your hotel/hostel.

Our driver is going to take you in a private comfortable car straight to Auschwitz where you will join the guided tour of Auschwitz-Birkenau camp. The transfer from Krakow itself lasts for around 1 hour each way. In Oświęcim (Auschwitz) the tour with a guide for the group will last for about 3,5h. After the tour there is a possibility to have a lunch nearby and after the lunch our private driver will take all participants of the group to the next stop which is the breath-taking town of Wieliczka Salt Mine.

Around 4:30 p.m from here will start another tour with a guide around amazing underground salt chambers. Take a second to grasp the beauty of this breathtaking adventure around labyrinths stretched over 9 levels at 64 to 327 meters below the surface of the Earth. After the tour with a guide in Wieliczka you will be taken back in with our driver in van to Krakow to any place you desire. This part of the Wieliczka tour will finish around 8:00 pm. This will be a long day but for sure is worth every second of the visit.

It’s important to mention that Wieliczka Salt Mine is really one of the most precious and fascinating Polish monuments that each international traveller should visit. The first tourist trail in Wieliczka was established as early as at the turn of the 19th century. A couple of centuries later the salt mine was designated as one of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites (exactly in 1978). The underground trail leads through numerous drifts, galleries and chambers, where traces of mining activity have been preserved, as well as examples of sacred art, theme compositions relating to the history of the mine and legends. Worth mentioning is the fact that the microclimate of the mine has a beneficial impact on visitors who suffer from asthma and allergies.

Price 80 EUR per person applies to adults. There is a possibility of a discount if you are a student. Feel free to contact us.
