Itinerary

Wieliczka Salt Mine Half-Day Tour (4 Hours) Make your own way to the start point in central Krakow or enjoy a pickup from your central Krakow hotel. Board your air-conditioned minibus and, during your roughly 30-minute drive to Wieliczka, learn fascinating facts about this 700-year-old salt mine.
When you arrive, head inside with your guide and take the steps down to the three upper levels. Then, work your way through the eerie chambers that are lined with stunning shrines, sculptures and figurines, all crafted from solid salt.
Visit the showpiece Chapel of St Kinga — a subterranean church embellished with salt-hewn chandeliers and other salt-cut features. As you explore, hear from your guide how it took two men more than 30 years to carve this architectural wonder.
See the subterranean lake in the Eram Baracz chamber, and then view the mining equipment and artifacts that chart how the mine was first worked in the Middle Ages.
Afterward, ride the elevator back to the surface and return to Krakow, where your first tour ends at your hotel or the central start point.
Private Krakow Tour by Melex (1.5 Hours)In the afternoon, start with a pickup from your centrally located Krakow hotel at your chosen departure time. Meet your private driver and board your private, eco-friendly Melex — a small electric car similar to a golf kart.
Settle in and enjoy the informative audio commentary as your driver chauffeurs you around Krakow’s top attractions. The Melex is a great way to explore Krakow Old Town, as it can access areas closed to normal traffic.
In the Old Town, glide around the medieval main square, Rynek Glowny, and see the Cloth Hall, St Mary’s Church and other sights before continuing to the old city walls to see the Barbican defensive tower. Then, head into Kazimierz, the city's former Jewish neighbourhood, cruising down the old-world streets past merchants’ houses and synagogues.
Next, visit Podgorze, site of the Jewish Ghetto of World War II. Hear stories of the Holocaust and view the emotionally charged sites associated with the Nazi occupation, including Ghetto Heroes Square and Oskar Schindler’s Factory.
Afterward, return to your hotel, where your private tour ends.

The over all organisation and execution were faultless. Our bus courier Kasha was exemplary with her helpfulness in coordinating the two parts of the package. The english speaking guide in the salt mine was competent but rather spoiled the end of the experience by leaving us with not enough briefing as to where to meet her again to make the exit - all of our group were a bit baffled! Matthew who drove us in the electric car is a very interesting person, very good of course with his local knowledge but also delightfully curious so that our tour was a lovely conversation as well.

The Salt Mines were amazing. It was however at times hard to hear the guide re the one ear headphone that kept crackling/ guide out of range which impacted on us not getting all the info. Transfersprivate Kraków tour by car was great with a very informative driver.m, it was pry of a super saver.

Salt Mine tour us a 'must do' for Kraków. Yes, lots of stairs and walking involved, but is quite manageable. Electric car tour was OK, but nothing special.

I recommend this super saver if you have the stamina to tour for a whole day! The salt mines were terrific. Lots of steps, but worth the visit. The tour guide was great. The city tour was fine to get your bearings of the city with a little history, but nothing fantastic. It was all I needed to see where I wanted to go to later in my visit to Kraków. A great deal for what I wanted.
