Great way to get acquainted with the city!
We really enjoyed our tour with Aleksander! After doing a ton of walking in cities before Krakow, we really wanted to rest without missing out on our sightseeing. This was an amazing affordable option. We got to see many major sites of Krakow while the guide provided history and significance. It was great to get to decide where we wanted to spend the remaining time we had there while seeing everything too. Aleksander was informative and even provided us with blankets when it got cold.

My wife and I took 2 tours with this company last week. The first was the Auschwitz and Birkenhau Tour. We were well looked after by the Discover Tour guide and driver. When we got to Auschwitz we were handed over to one of their tour guides. I believe her name was Anna. She looked after us for the Auschwitz and Birkenhau part. She was a very good tour guide who spoke good English. She had a passion in what she was telling us and was very emotional with it. She was very knowledgeable about the 2 sights and was not following a script like some tour guide do. The next day we went with Discover Cracow to the Salt Mine and once again we were well looked after. The company tour guide took us through the Salt Mine with one of the Salt Mine guides and once again we were provided with detailed account of the history of the mine. Both the Auschwitz and Salt Mine tour are well worth doing whist in Krakow and in my opinion Discover Cracow is a good company to do it with.

Extraordinary
I have rarely seen anything this extraordinary. You start by going down a 'spiral' staircase that is square in cross-section and which seems infinite. There follows a 2 km walk though tunnels that frequently widen into display areas, chapels, ponds, son et lumiere, caverns. It is one wonder after another, difficult to encapsulate in words or pictures. The return to the surface is, mercifully, by a fast lift. Salt carvings, salt chandeliers, Salt statues. Goethe apparently called it a 'wonder of the world' in the 1790s - I have to agree with him. Our trip was marred slightly by a guide who thought that his role was to tell jokes rather than introduce the mine - but the sheer profusion and scale of the exhibits shone through his frail ego. I overheard other guides who were excellent. It is absolutely fascinating - please go! I went as part of a group - a category not included below in trip Advisor's list, so I have had to tick 'solo'.

Overall a really good experience
This was a really great way to see the city if you are tight for time. We chose to do this today which was our last day, as we had planned tours the previous days. The guide/ driver was so helpful and so friendly. We unfortunately didn’t get his name, but whoever was driving the 9:30 tour today, was really great!! We purchased tickets separately for Schindler’s factory, which you have an hour in. At times it does feel rushed because you can’t stop and look at everything but you get a good enough feel for the museum. Overall a really good experience I would highly recommend!!
Krakow in a Day: 3-Hour City Tour by Electric Car
If it's the only thing you do in Krakow...
...do this!!!

Fantastic tour: see beautiful countryside, learn things about Nazi culture that you've never heard or read, view the magnificent beauty of hundreds of years of labor in the salt mine.
Our driver picked us up at our door, spoke great English, stopped us at a great restaurant, and dropped us wherever we wanted to go.
One thing: you need a soft schedule that allows for 10 hours OR MORE. There are a lot of people in both locations so the timing is variable.

Amazing underground complex
The must do if you are in Krakow. The tour is about 3km walk through the network of caves - you start by descending approx 60 meters via wooden stairs so get ready for some physical excercise. The caves and corridors, which were created in the past 500 years of salt mining is a unique sightseeing - some of the rooms can accommodate hundreds of people. It is an exciting excurse to the history of salt mining.

We booked through the hotel on arrival into Krakow to go to Auschwitz and the Salt Mines. It was brilliant value for money and we thoroughly enjoyed the trips. Auschwitz was very emotional but something that everyone should visit if they get the chance.
The Salt Mines were amazing although be aware of the 380 steps down straight away and then a couple of hundred after. You do get a lift up (thank god).

Absolutely fascinating incredible place
A completely unique experience. The sheer scale and history cannot be overstated.
It's a 1 mile walk through the key chambers, albeit there's 200 miles if tunnels.
The carvings are incredible, and the cathedral in the middle is stunning.
The walkthroughs are well presented, and if you're reasonably fit with good shoes it's easy to walk around. Temperature is c15 degrees, air is fresh.

Brilliant!
This was a great way to start our stay in Krakow. Highly recommended, as it gave us a true overview of where to find things in the city and decide what to do and what to see on the days that came later and even though it was extremely cold outside, in the car it was much warmer and we could enjoy the city. Do it, you will not regret it.

Absolute must do!
The tour is approx 2 hours long with a short break in the middle. It is very interesting and informative. Our tour guide was great. Toilets are free here but the will try get an extra tip. Loved this experience. We got a salt lamp from the stalls outside as they are cheap than the ones found inside! Would highly recommend this tour.

The saltiest of trips
When going to the salt mine I was not sure what to expect. What welcomes us was a maze of chamber and passages filled with sculptures and beauty. Only a 30min bus journey from krakow main square this is a must see attraction. Our guide Joanne was very knowledgeable and entertaining. I would definitely visit again.

We did the Salt mines tour in the afternoon, which was fantastic experience, lots of steps down, so people with walking problems would struggle. Dont worry you get the lift for your return to the surface. We were picked up from the hotel and dropped off at the end of the day.

Great experience
The guide, Natalia, is professional, funny and friendly; it made the photoshoot a great experience, where I could relax and be comfortable.

Not only was the photoshoot great, however, our conversation about the city and history regarding Krakow was also pleasant.

We used Discover Krakow Tours, booked by our hotel, for tours of Auschwitz and Wieliczka Salt Mine. I would recommend this group. The tour was efficiently organized and the guides and drivers kind and courteous. Both the attractions we visited require private guides from the museum and salt mine so the Discover Cracow guides mainly get you from your hotel to the site. We did not try any of their other tours but I think they would be good.
