Pick-up service was well informed and arranged. Driver Konrad was most helpfull and kind, and good & safe driver!

Our tour guide in Auschwitz and Birkenau was just perfect! She knows everything there and the arrangements were really smooth. The audio system works perfectly and let's you have some flexibilty for your own interest points during the tour, and you do not miss any information - or the group.

Also similar arrangement was in use in the Salt Mine. All in all, interesting day and impressive sights!!!

Description

More than a million Jews and other prisoners were killed in Auschwitz concentration camp during World War II. On this tour you’ll learn about what it was like to live in the camps during Nazi occupation and see, first hand, the brutality of Hitler’s regime.

You’ll visit both Auschwitz I and Auschwitz II-Birkenau and have the opportunity to join guided tours in English or to explore at your own pace with privacy.

The second half of the tour takes you below ground, to the UNESCO-listed Wieliczka Salt Mine, which is more than 800 years old. You’ll be surprised by what you discover in the many chambers of this dark world – including a gothic cathedral and underground lake! Guided tours in English take place every hour (every half hour in Summer) and the route takes about 2.5 hours.

PLEASE NOTE
The salt mine tour involves climbing up and down a total of 800 stairs and is not advised for people with mobility issues.

Well organised and no hassle
Both our driver and guides were very professional and friendy. We had enough time both at Auschwitz and at the salt mines. We also had a decent lunch break. Those who intend to book this tour need to be aware that there is a lot of walking and if you have time maybe you should consider doing them on seperate days.
Excellent tour day!
