If you cannot stay in Krakow for too long, this combined tour lets you visit two Southern Poland’s must-see’s in one day. Each of them is of a different nature, but they are both on the UNESCO World’s Heritage List and not too far from the City of Krakow. Why not seeing both in one day?
You do not really need to stay in Krakow for a night. With an early departure from Warsaw and arriving to Krakow at around 9.30 am you will have plenty of time to see Auschwitz-Birkenau and the Salt Mine. The departure of your return train to Warsaw must be then booked for after 9 pm.
Our excellent English speaking driver will be awaiting you directly at the train platform. You will easily find him as he will be holding a large card with your name displayed. From this point he will take a very good care of you throughout the whole day until you are brought back to the station for your return train.
After about one hour drive you will arrive to Auschwitz-Birkenau where you enter through a fast track and join an English speaking guided tour. A driver will stay with you until you meet your local guide. After about two hours guided tour and a short break you will be taken to Birkenau where you will continue your guided visit for about one hour. After visiting Auschwitz-Birkenau a driver will take you to a local restaurant for lunch (your meal is not included in the total price of the tour).
Visiting the Salt Mine in Wieliczka is the next item of this tour. The Mine was inscribed onto the First UNESCO World Natural and Cultural Heritage List in 1978. Every year it is visited by over one million tourists. It reaches a depth of 327 meters and the mine passage is almost 300 km long! The Salt Mine continuously produced kitchen salt from the 13th century until 1996, being one of the world’s oldest operating salt mines.
When you reach the mine our driver will also accompany you until you meet you local English speaking guide and join your tour. Visiting the mine always takes place under the supervision of the guide, there is no possibility to visit the site on your own. Visiting usually lasts approximately 2.5 hours and includes about 2.5 km walk down the comfortable and about 2 metres wide corridors and paths. Three levels are made available for visitors to see. There are 20 chambers and about 800 steps to climb. Tourists enter the mine descending 380 steps to the first level (64 m underground) and return to the surface by an elevator from the third level (135 m). Temperature in the mine is between 14 and 16 degrees Celsius, all year round.
