Overview

Both the Wieliczka Salt Mine and the Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial and Museum can only be explored in a group led by an official guide. Given it takes around three hours to travel between the two on public transport, your only practical option for seeing both in a day is with a transfer service. This cost-effective package includes admission tickets, guided tours, and door-to-door transfers to and from central Krakow hotels.
  • Pay tribute at the somber Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial and Museum
  • Wander the echoing caverns of a UNESCO World Heritage salt mine
  • Round-trip transfers direct from your hotel save hours of time
  • Explore both sites with specialist guides, with a tour leader in transit

Your was pleasant for the most part. Driver was great and very good at giving directions. When you arrive at either location you are given to a tour guide and we were combined with other travelers. Our groups were quite large but we got good information and had a good experience regardless. My concern is that no COVID mitigations we’re in place. No vaccination or test check was conducted before we loaded the bus or when we arrived at either location. This worries me during the uprise in cases currently since we were stuffed in the van and small spaces during the tour. Masks were also not enforced and the woman next to me was openly coughing on the bus. I think the tour operators can make this experience more safe by checking a green pass and enforcing mask wearing.

The experiences were both brilliant in their own way, a informative insight into the tragedy of Auschwitz and then seeing the spectacle of the salt mines - as we didn’t have much time in Poland, getting both in one day meant we didn’t have to choose. Our driver was really helpful and friendly too.

Firstly, our tour organiser and driver, Christopher, did a fantastic job of making sure the group were on track and well organised. He spoke perfect English and ensured everyone understood what to expect at each exhibition. Chris was punctual and informative. Auschwitz was a jarring experience and left us stunned as you can imagine. We were supplied with an official tour guide who walked us round both camps with great knowledge. The salt mine required a lot of walking down steps (~700 total) but was definitely worth it to learn about how pivotal salt was as a commodity and currency to Krakow in its history.

Did not start off to well as the day I booked my trip for was cancelled untill the following day,not a major problem as we had a few days in krakow remaining.we were asked to be ready for 7.15 am as the days are getting darker so again not a major problem but not happy stood outside in the cold when the transport had issues and did not turn up untill 7.50 am.on the plus side when we did get there the trip was worth every penny,the driver was pleasant and polite and the guides were excellent.I know things don’t always run smoothly and problems can arise so if you book trips don’t leave them to the last day as you may not get to see the things you really want to.I have to say the company kept us informed via phone message at all times regarding problems and changes,I would definitely use them again and in the future I will book well in advance to allow for any disruption/ cancellation etc.
