With the help of the provided headset, listen as your guide tells about the ghastly Nazi crimes committed in the camps and hear stories of the everyday lives of the prisoners. Next, continue the tour at the Auschwitz-Birkenau II Memorial. Witness gas chambers and the remains of the railway which transported prisoners to the camps. After a lunch break, drive to the nearby town of Wieliczka to visit its famous salt mine. Prearranged tickets will be waiting for you at the salt mine along with a local guide. Start the tour inside the salt mine by walking down long sets of steps, taking you 135 meters underground and through labyrinthine passageways, tunnels, and shafts. See underground lakes, 4 chapels, and unique statues carved by miners out of rock salt. Experience a unique place to visit and a must-see during your stay in Krakow. Once the guided tour is over, take a lift from the underground back up to the main ground level to meet your driver. Relax as you make the journey back to your accommodation Krakow.

    Our tour guide, Michael, was amazing. He made the 2 hour journey there and back entertaining, filled us with knowledge that we wouldn’t have received anywhere else and always made sure we were well looked after. Auschwitz and birkenau was the most moving and incredible experience my family have been through. Birkenau’s original state, including the female quarters was the most eye opening. For those of you who are contemplating doing this trip, I urge you to do it - you will not regret it.

    It was an excellent trip, well organised and very interesting. Would have given 5 stars but we got stuck getting through the security process at Auschwitz and got left behind by the tour guide. However the site staff and our driver quickly got us united back into our tour group.
