Panstwowe Muzeum Auschwitz-Birkenau

You will be taken to Auschwitz I, where you will join an English tour – provided by the Museum’s guide – for about 2,5 hours. After that, we will transfer you to Auschwitz II – Birkenau, which is about 2 km away. You will spend there about 1 hour with the same guide.

Great day trip outside of Krakow!
Eric_I, 10-10-2021
Excellent day trip, our guide at Auschwitz- Birkenau was very knowledgeable, clearly knew his topic and the history. It is a difficult tour from a content standpoint, definitely not a place to bring young children. The headphones they provided for the Auschwitz part of the tour were very useful, guide only has to speak softly and everyone can hear. Guide at Wieliczka Salt Mine also very knowledgeable and made it interesting. The salt mine is truly amazing, a must see.Tour operator gave me the option to arrange for lunch which was very convenient. The 2 venues in 1 day makes for for a very long day, there's a lot of standing around and walking, at both Auschwitz- Birkenau and at the salt mine. You will be tired at the end of the day but it avoids 2 separate trips, so you can enjoy a full day enjoying and relaxing in Krakow.
Perfect Day

Excellent value

Great experience, comfortable transport, friendly driver. However at the salt mine, we should have been informed that we would exit at a different site, and needed to make our way back to the entrance to the mine.
Breath taking

Auschwitz and Salt Mines

Don’t want to say too much about Auschwitz. If you are in Krakow you have to go. Tour picks you up at hotel and drops you back. The salt mines are wonderful and a must visit. They are not too crowded due to Covid so now is a must. And a got a little souvenir found on floor. Tour company very good. Would recommend.
