Full description
Wait for your driver to pick you up from your hotel/accommodation in Krakow 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. 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 while listening to the hisotry of the mine and carvings observed. When the visit ends - take a lift up and get back with your driver to Krakow.

    Really well organised trip. Our driver Wojtek was brilliant, really friendly, helpful and made sure we safely entered into each place and knew where to meet after. He even let us stop off for lunch, where he ended up buying the other group of people food and drinks as they didn't have cash with them, feel very bad for the driver though as they didn't pay him back or give him a tip....shame on you Hope that doesn't discourage him from being an excellent driver and tour guide!
