Description

After getting picked up at your hotel in Krakow, head to the notorious Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp. Here, explore the grounds in the company of a licensed tour guide. Skip the lines at Auschwitz I and enter directly into the camp where you will experience the living conditions of the prisoners and feel the enormity of the atrocities perpetrated upon them. Afterwards, head to Auschwitz-Birkenau II. Embark on a guided tour of the site and visit gas chambers, barracks and the railway platform where prisoners were unloaded. Later, drive to Wieliczka and break for lunch before beginning your tour of the salt mines. Enjoy a guided tour of the historic underground chambers of this UNESCO World Heritage Site. Walk along the 3-kilometer tourist route located 135 meters underground. Experience the health benefits of its special climate and its micro-element filled air. See the chapels made of salt constructed by the miners, as well as the spectacular salt chandeliers before returning to Krakow in the evening. Please note that from April 1, 2020, pickup for the trip will take place between 6:30 AM–1:30 PM. This is due to new regulations in the Auschwitz-Birkenau Museum.
