What to Expect
Following pickup from your Krakow hotel in the morning, travel to Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial and Museum, a UNESCO-listed former Nazi concentration camp. Spend some time at Auschwitz I, the former SS administrative center, or at Auschwitz II-Birkenau, where most of the murders took place (depending on option selected). A timed ticket allows you to bypass long lines outside of the complex and start your guided tour immediately. After visiting the former SS administrative center and Holocaust memorial, you have a break to eat a provided boxed lunch. The next stop is the Wieliczka Salt Mine, another UNESCO World Heritage Site, where you descend into the tunnels of one of the world’s oldest salt mines. During your tour, see saline lakes and sculptures carved from salt before returning to the surface via an elevator. The tour concludes with hotel drop-off in Krakow.

I went with Crakow Tours and thought they were excellent. I used other companies but find this one to be the best so far. The driver was professional, knowledgeable and engaging. A visit to Auschwitz- Birkenau is important for everyone. The tour guide we had was really good.
