Full description
Explore two of the most important destinations near Krakow over 2 days, choosing which museum you wish to visit first. For the Auschwitz tour, you will be picked up from your hotel by a minivan. You will then be driven around 65 kilometres to the former Nazi concentration camp where your guide will explain some the dark past of the area. The tour includes visits to the two camps, Auschwitz I and Auschwitz II Birkenau. See the remains of barracks, watchtowers, railway ramps, gas chambers, and crematoriums. 

Your Wieliczka Salt Mine tour also includes hotel pickup. You will be taken to the Wieliczka Salt Mine, which is roughly a 40-minute drive away from Krakow. Once you arrive at Wieliczka, you will descend the 378 stairs to level 1, 64 meters below ground. Your English-speaking guide will brief you about safety regulations in the mine.

Continuing to descend, you'll travel along a 3-kilometer route as you discover many unique chambers with amazing carvings and salt statues. At the end of the route, you will have the chance to explore the souvenir shop and snack bar. Lastly, you will be taken up to the surface by a high-speed lift.
