What to expect
Meet a driver at your Krakow hotel for departure between 830am and 9:30am, then board a Mercedes Benz minivan or minibus for the 70-minute trip to Auschwitz-Birkenau. Along the way, the short documentary The Liberation of Auschwitz will be screened, including footage by the Soviet soldiers who freed the camp. Upon arrival at Auschwitz-Birkenau, join a guide for a 3.5-hour guided tour of the camps, now preserved as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. You’ll see barracks, train tracks, and long rows of gas chamber chimneys, and learn the story of those who suffered and died in the largest concentration and extermination centers in the Nazi Third Reich. Following your time at Auschwitz-Birkenau, continue to the Wieliczka Salt Mine, a roughly 1.5-hour drive. Pause for an hour-long lunch break at the mines (a packed lunch can be provided upon request, at additional expense). Enter the 13th-century, UNESCO-listed salt mine for a 2.5-hour guided tour, touring a landscape carved from salt, with pillars, vaulted ceilings, and sculptures in glistening white. This full-day tour concludes with drop-off at your hotel or at another location in central Krakow.

Krakow Direct - Excellent - Highly recommended
Sep 2020
Organised, courteous, friendly, helpful and very well presented - from hotel pick-up to tour guides, it was excellent.

I say this as someone who is more of an explorer than a tourist and reluctantly goes on organised tours.

Auschitz-Birkenau & Salt Mine
Aug 2020 • Family
Excellent day trip, our tour guide was very informative and helpful throughout the whole day. It was a long day from 0900 to 1900 hours but worth it. The camps were upsetting & what you would expect, grim, but so glad we went, made us realise just what freedom we have

Great tour guide Simon and very memorable day
Exhausting but essential visit to the mass murder sites. Must never be forgotten - you’ll never understand the magnitude of terror unless you visit! Humbling and devastating.
Second half in the salt mines was incredible. Amazing history and sculpturing of vast salt chambers. Simon was our private driver from Krakow and went above and beyond to help us.

Amazing company and tours
A huge thank you to krakow direct! The tours were the highlight of my trip. Booking was quick and efficient and you felt looked after. Our driver was friendly and looked after us. The tour guides at each site were amazing and hugely knowledgeable. Everything went so smoothly and you never felt rushed and had enough time at each site. I highly recommend the company and the tours.

A great day
Feb 2020
We had michael as our guide, great guy. What a fabulous tour guide! He gave a lot of explanations, gave us enough time on all the locations and was very understanding and up for a chat.
The tour itself was also great, we started off with auswitz. Very interesting and confronting. The tour included a guide and audio devices aswell. We then went to auswotz birkenau.. a killing machine but oh so impressive to see. We were confronted by the horrors of men and what men are capable of.

Later we went for lunch and visited the salt mines. Very good tour as well and also a very wide offer of stuff in the gift shop. We sooo recommend saving room in your luggage for their amazin bath salts and you should also buy the garlic salt.. in fact, buy two as you will be sad when you run out because it is SO GOOD.
We will never forget our journey to poland and auswitz!!

Emotional and amazing day
Feb 2020
We used Kracow Direct for our airport transfers and for this tour. Very reasonable charges. Excellent and spotlessly clean vehicles and very friendly and informative drivers. Auschwitz is a must to visit, although very emotional, we were met by our driver after the toUr and taken to the salt mine again such an amazing site to see.

Overwhelming day trip
Mar 2020
Pondered between a few different service providers but in the end went with Krakow Direct. Helpful service on Facebook, easy booking and pick-up on point. You could tell they were not doing this the first time. The day is very long and emotional too but well worth it.
