Rating 4.7 based on 45 reviews

Excellent tour day!
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!!!
Auschwitz & Wieliczka Salt Mine Day Trip from Krakow
The best!
As I was staying just a couple of days in Krakow, I was looking for an option that combined Auswitch and The Salt Mines. That's how I find Discover Krakow.
From the beginning they were really polite and we organized the pick up from the hotel via email (as I mentioned that I didn't have my mobile number abroad). And they confirmed the pick up the day before via email also.
The guide / bus driver was Konrad, who was really polite and spoke English super well!
In site our tour guides were really polite and explained the site really well.
Finally, if anyone is thinking in doing both sites (auswitch and salt mines) on the same day, I would say that this tour is the best. You don't rush at all, you have time for everything. It's a full day full of experiences.
Auschwitz & Wieliczka Salt Mine Day Trip from Krakow
Excellent and valuable tour
Due to a short stay, me and my girlfriend decided to book both Auschwitz and the Wieliczka salt mine tours in one day, Totally worth it. We were tired at the end of the day but felt like we had gotten good value for our money as well as informative and historical facts. The guide, a local named Conrad, was very helpful and friendly and I hope anyone planning to book this tour is lucky enough to get him as a guide. I sincerely recommend taking this tour, especially if you have little time to spend in Krakow
Auschwitz & Wieliczka Salt Mine Day Trip from Krakow
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.

Had a great day!
Conrad was awesome, really helpful and friendly. It was so good being picked up and dropped off at our accommodation. Our vehicle was comfortable and it was good to have the video playing on our way to Auschwitz. Conrad took us to a great restaurant for lunch which was much appreciated. He did a fantastic job hosting us for the day!
Auschwitz & Wieliczka Salt Mine Day Trip from Krakow
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.

Auschwitz-Birkenau Group Tour from Krakow

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'.
Wieliczka Salt Mine Guided Tour from Krakow
1st class tour operator
Our Group of 4 were picked up from our hotel on time arranged , our transport was a clean air conditioned mini bus ,our driver Conrad was polite very keen to answer any questions we had and also played a video on route of the history of Auschwitz, ,Once we arrived at Auschwitz we were grouped up with around another 15 people for the tour which seemed to be the same amount of people in the other tour groups,it took about 1hr 45 to complete the tour once the tour was over ,Conrad then took us to Auschwitz -Birkenau which is only a short drive, we were then taken around by the same tour guide in the same group the tour took about 1hr 15 the tour guide was excellent ,We could not have booked a better tour operator everything was 1st class .The only bad points was to witness the horror of what the Nazis inflicted on the poor souls who were murdered at Auschwitz .

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.

Everybody Should.
My wife and i felt compelled to do this trip as we have had such a wonderful life compared to the the majority of Auschwitz-Birkenau inmates who had none . The tour was well planned and carried out with enough information on conditions and the setting for this tragedy to give us an insight into what these human being were put through .

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.
