Krakow in a Day: 3-Hours City Tour by Electric Car
, Feb 2020
Very informative trip and recommend booking on your first day in Krakow. Optional Schindler Factory tour at the end for an additional £5.00 each, skip the queue with our tour guide and definitely worth doing. The car came back and collected us afterwards and dropped us off in the Old Town.
I found this tour ok. Driven past lots of places of interest. Good value for money. Very good tour guide.
On the downside there were two 15 minute stops both at catholic churches. We did feel as though the Catholic church was pushed on us a bit. No other stop off points, which is fine we just didn't want to hang around two churches out of all the sights we visited.
This is a fantastic way to get your bearings of Krakow, and see a lot in a short space of time. You’ll be picked up from a designated meeting place, so you won’t get lost, and you’ll travel with an English-speaking driver. The tour is better than driving around yourself, as you won’t have to worry about navigating or parking. Enjoy an audio guide, and see many highlights of the Old Town, the Jewish Quarters, and the Ghetto.
Zip around Krakow in an electric car on this sightseeing tour. Led by a private driver, soak up the city's rich history as audio commentary offers background on the passing attractions. Travel through the Jewish district of Kazimierz, see the Barbican and Cloth Hall in the Old Town, and experience a poignant piece of World War II history in the former Jewish Ghetto of Podgórze. Your private tour concludes back at your original departure point.
Regular bus routes are rarely much use for the short-term visitor. Explore Krakow at your leisure—complete with audio-commentary—by hop-on, hop-off bus. Choose between 24-hour and 48-hour tickets, then soak up key sights from Wawel Castle to Oskar Schindler’s Factory. Upgrade for a 2-city hop-on, hop-off pass, which buys 24 hours' travel in two of three cities: Krakow, Warsaw, or Gdansk.
It was a fantastic tour. Our guide driver was excellent with a in dept knowledge of what happened during ww2. His accent was so easy to listen to and understand. Unfortunately we can’t remember his name. If this helps get him a much deserved pay raise he drove a white electric vehicle he lived in Canada for a few years.
Our guide was fantastic. Very knowledgable, helpful and couldn’t do enough for us. He was more than happy to answer all the questions we had and gave us so much information it really was a brilliant trip.
Explore Kazimierz and discover the Jewish/Polish side of Krakow to learn more about the historic equilibrium of two different cultures. Later, visit Oskar Schindlers factory and see what Krakow was like under Nazi occupation.
Discover for yourself why the Wieliczka Salt Mine is one of Poland’s most visited attractions and an original UNESCO World Heritage site with this half-day guided tour from Krakow. Descend deep underground to explore the captivating tunnels, chapels, and chambers carved into the salt rock over eight centuries. Learn the fascinating history behind one of the world’s oldest operating salt mines thanks to commentary from an English-speaking guide, and enjoy convenient pickup from select Kraków hotels.
On a fun Segway tour of Krakow you can experience the city close up, just like on a walking tour, and cover a lot of ground, like you would touring by car. You’ll be in a small group, so you will have the chance to hear your guide’s interesting stories about Krakow’s past and present and ask your own questions. See the city’s must-see attractions as well as lesser-known backstreets and hidden corners.
As it turned out, it was just myself and my husband on this tour. Our guide was a history teacher and well versed in the Krakow history. We visited all of the main sites in Old Town and were blessed with beautiful 73 degree weather. We enjoyed being familiarized with all the sites Pope John Paul visited and preached. The castle cathedral was not as luxurious as those in western Europe, but beautiful none the same. The tour gave us a great overview of the Old Town. Several sites we visited the next day and were able to explore in more depth.
Our guide was a nice gentleman originally from Krakow. He was very knowledgeable and knew a lot about the history and architecture. We visited and observed a lot of things/places that you would probably miss or not know about. There were only 3 people on the tour, it was very enjoyable and personal being such an small group. This was a great introduction to Krakow on our first day and we would highly recommend this visiting the city.
Krakow’s UNESCO-listed Old Town is the city’s most atmospheric district and the best way to explore is on foot. This 3-hour walking tour checks off all the highlights, including the Royal Route and the Wawel Castle complex; the medieval St. Mary’s Basilica and 17th-century St Peter and Paul’s Church; and the historic Cloth Hall.
Great tour, extremely well organised. Picked up from the hotel and transferred then to another bus, where we had a lovely guide Barbara then also at the at mines Monica the guide was excellent. Would recommend booking this tour.
My husband and myself made our own way to the pick up point which was a 5 minute walk. A minibus then took us to the bus station where we changed to a coach and travelled to Wieliczka to visit the salt mines. The English speaking guide on the coach was very good and gave us all the information we needed. Once we arrived we were given 15 free time to use the loo and get a drink. We were then given headsets and met our English speaking guide in the mine and made our way down hundreds of wooden stairs and the mine was amazing and the guide was very good and funny. We had free time to buy goods from the souvenir shops too. We were then dropped back into Krakow main square. Would highly recommend using Viator for this trip and the Auchwitz one.
Explore the underground world of the Wieliczka Salt Mine on a half-day tour from Krakow. Follow an expert guide through the mine’s tunnels and chambers and discover the Chapel of the Blessed Kinga, an exhibition on the history of Poland’s salt-mining, figures carved from salt and more. See why this 700-year-old complex has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Your tour concludes with drop-off back at your Krakow hotel.

Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial and Museum Guided Tour from Krakow
Completely as expected
, Feb 2020
Good experience. Well organised. Picked up in time. Guide at the camps was good and interesting. Not sure if I would buy the packed lunch again as cold sandwiches and fruit are not my thing. I’d probably buy from the kiosk in the morning break or take my own.
Very well organised visit. The site is a must for those who want to see what the crime of genocide means and how 20th century technology was used to implement it. Very helpful driver and excellent guide at the site.
This tour was amazing in a variety of ways. It further educated people in how these atrocities were committed and to never happen again. It was extremely emotional and can only serve to ensure future generations aware how this was to happen.
Make your visit to Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial and Museum as easy as possible on this tour from Krakow. In a group limited to 12 people, travel to the former Nazi concentration camp in a comfortable bus before embarking on a shared guided tour of the complex.

Half-Day Wieliczka Salt Mine Tour From Krakow With Transport
Salt mines - definitely worth a visit
, Feb 2020
Awesome trip where we were picked up from our hotel by Peter our friendly, safe driver from Krakow Direct. Arriving at the salt mines we were kitted out with our entrance tickets and our audio equipment and headphones before we met our knowledgeable guide who worked for the salt mines- wow this lady knew her stuff.
780 steps down (135 metres) into the mine for approximately 2 hour tour seeing some incredible pieces of art carved from salt. The highlight for me was the great hall with its own chapel and alter (they do actual weddings here!!) the carving of the last supper was fantastic and so was the Pope Jon Paul II statue. Free time for a look round the shop or refreshments before cramming into the mine shaft lift (not for the faint hearted but the only way out - but it only takes 40 seconds) if you have time on your trip to Krakow this attraction should definitely be on your itinerary.
The Wieliczka Salt Mine is one of the world's oldest salt mines and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, as well as being one of Poland’s most popular attractions. This half-day tour from Krakow includes a guided tour of the underground mines, tunnels, lakes, and chapels, plus pickup and round-trip transport from a central Krakow hotel.
We had Alex as our tour guide. He was absolutely amazing. Very knowledgeable and fun. We appreciated his personal tips and advice. You don’t have to be extremely physically fit to go as we took many breaks but you do cover quite a bit of distance. The history and scenery was extraordinary. Would recommend this over and over again. Thanks Alex for such a wealth of knowledge and great company. Dziękujemy ;)
The tour covers the must see spots of Cracow letting you understand a full picture of Cracow and Polish culture at it's best. Run by friendly, knowledgeable and very local indeed guides.
See you in Cracow !
Krakow City Sightseeing Private Tour by Eco Friendly Electric Car With Audio Guide
From $20.00 (Price varies by group size )
Could do better
, Aug 2019
The guide spoke very little English and had not lived in Krakow until recently. He pointed to places of interest and played the English narrative of the place of interest on his phone. Was unable to answer questions we asked about entrance to places etc.. We did see most of the tourist attractions in Krakow but have been on better electric car and other orientation tours.
Cruise through Krakow in an electric car on this 60- or 90-minute private city tour. Enjoy an open-air ride through the Old Town, passing the Rynek Główny, the Cloth Hall and the medieval structure of the Barbican, and delve into areas closed to normal traffic. Then, experience a poignant piece of World War II history as you pass Oskar Schindler’s Factory, Ghetto Heroes Square and the city’s former Jewish quarter. As you go, your private guide will discuss the stories behind this vibrant Polish city.
We will experience an authentic day in Krakow after a well-planned route through the city.
In my eco-friendly Golf Car I will take you around the Old Town, Kazimierz Jewish Quarter where you discover the Christian and Jewish part of district, Ghetto (from the time of the Second World War) and Schindler's Factory.
We have a audio guide with informations about historical monuments (26 languages optional) - so we will stop at each location and allow time for explanation of sites and their long history.
You will also discover less popular streets, where you will feel the true climate of the district and a lot of street art.
On the tour you can try the most famous Zapiekanki (open-faced sandwich) at Plac Nowy.
To memorize the trip you will be photographed by me and then I will send you photos to the email.
Electric vehicle is also heated so it's warm and allows to use in winter time.
Our tour guide, Dominica explained well the creepy history behind the walls of Krakow. She is a jolly and energetic tour guide that you wouldn’t believe that such happened to the streets of Krakow, so book your tour now!

Skip the Line: Wieliczka Salt Mine Entrance Ticket
, Dec 2019
Must be seen! The guide that we had worked there years ago and was brilliant in explaining to us in very good English how the mines had worked, I do have a small problem with my legs and did panic when we started down the stairs, but you stop at different levels and there was an elderly couple in our tour that managed the stairs well, it’s absolutely beautiful when you get to the base and the only way up is by lift so don’t let the stairs stop you to see this amazing landmark.
This was more fun than I'd expected. I didn't know mines could be so huge. Our guide was very friendly and constantly joked along the way, while giving us a fairly knowledgeable tour of the place. We had some senior citizens in our group, and she always made sure they won't get left behind. I highly recommend this tour for groups of all sizes and ages, except maybe children below 6 as there's quite a fair bit of walking involved.
You first of all need to be ok with lots of steps, walking and some enclosed spaces. If you ok with that then the visit is an incredible experience and well worth spending the some 3 hours underground. The guide we (nataliya?)had was very bubbly, enthusiastic and knowledgeable. The history is amazing, the underground cathedral spectacular. They even have toilets and break areas where you can buy drinks n snacks etc. Very interesting and extremely well organised. Definitely worth a visit.
Long lines reflect the popularity of Poland’s Wieliczka Salt Mine, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, meaning visitors often have to wait in advance of one hour. Save time with skip-the-line entry to the mines, which are comprised of more than 2,400 chambers featuring art galleries, a cathedral, and mining technology. During a guided tour, you’ll learn about the rich history of the subterranean wonderland.
Communism Tour in a Genuine Trabant Automobile from Krakow
, Jan 2020
Great little tour, liked the guide. The Trabant really added to the immersive experience. Works well as a short trip when visiting Auschwitz on Saturday and filling the time before the airport on the Sunday morning. Our guide even drove us to the airport and saved us the price of a taxi.
Communism Tour in a Genuine Trabant Automobile from Kraków
, Dec 2019
We were touring Eastern Europe for a month. This tour was a major highlight of our trip. The itinerary was very well thought out. Touring Nowa Huta, the Soviet « utopian » city in an era car and experiencing a little bit what it was like to live there (including the propaganda) far exceeded our expectations. What really made the trip was our guide. Claudia is a outstanding young woman. Her knowledge and passion made a deep impression on us in helping to understand life in Cold War Kraków. And her mastery of the ancient Trabant is fantastic. We would strongly recommend this tour with Claudia.
Discover Krakow’s communist history on a tour in a Trabant car. Take a ride in the vehicle classic to the era and explore the Nowa Huta district with your guide. Along the way, hop out to wander the neighborhood’s streets and learn about the rich history behind them. Upgrade to extend your tour with a visit to a private museum and a communist-era restaurant.
Day Trip to Auschwitz-Birkenau and Wieliczka Salt Mine from Krakow including Lunch
Auschwitz/ Salt mines in one day.
, Feb 2020
Very impressed with Viator communication. Reminders of payment due/tickets emailed before trip/email and text to confirm pick up time. Couldn’t be better.
Picked up promptly from our hotel and taken to Auschwitz. Guide was knowledgable and respectful. We were then taken to Auschwitz Birkenau. I’m not going to review these specifically as it’s a personal view of these places and very hard to describe. I do think everyone needs to see what happened. The trip to Auschwitz Birkenau was hard for us, as the ground is very uneven and were unable to keep up with the tour guide. That doesn’t detract from the experience, but it’s worth knowing for those with mobility issues that it is quite a long walk on uneven ground.
We were provided lunch, which was an edible packed lunch we had to eat on the coach on the drive to the salt mine. Again, doesn’t detract from this amazing day, but worth knowing you’re not going to get a sit-down lunch!
The salt mines are amazing, especially so when you consider you only get to see 1% of the mine. There are a lot of steps down to the first level (64m down) but the paths are even with lots of stops along the way. You then go down another couple of levels to continue the tour. It takes about 1 & 1/2 hours. Well worth seeing & don’t worry..... you get a lift back to the surface!!
Combine two of Krakow’s most important historic sites on this full-day tour of the Auschwitz-Birkenau Museum and the Wieliczka Salt Mine, including hotel pickup and lunch. Start with a moving tour of the Auschwitz-Birkenau complex, and learn the harrowing truths of the largest Nazi concentration camp complex. After lunch, venture underground to explore the UNESCO-listed Wieliczka mine, one of the world’s oldest working salt mines.
And not in a good way. The magnitude of Auschwitz-Birkenau is far too much to even begin to grasp what happened there. You know it's real, but because it doesn't fit into any societal mores, it is mind boggling. There aren't words to describe the reality of this camp, let alone the 600 or so others. The tour is absolutely excellent, the tour guide was fabulous and it was a very quiet drive back to Krakow.
Our tour guide was amazing - unfortunately I cannot remember his name!!! But he was a wealth of knowledge, passionate about what he was sharing and gave us important instructions on how to behave in such an emotional place. I highly recommend that you bring a lunch with you (athough you can't take it in, you can eat it in the bus between places) and remember to NOT bring large backpacks or you'll have to leave it in the bus. Fantastic tour - don't miss it!
I've wanted to go to Auschwitz for a long time now and I finally got to visit. It was a very moving and humbling experience to see first hand all the atrocities the Jews went through. I learnt so much more that I didn't know had happened.
Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial and Museum is a place devoted to the memory of those who lost their lives there during World War II. This tour will help you understand more about when the site was a concentration camp. After a morning pickup, you’ll travel in an air-conditioned minivan to Auschwitz-Birkenau. You’ll avoid crowds as you’re guaranteed to skip the long lines. A guided tour will enrich your experience as your guide will explain the history of the area in more depth.
Discover Krakow at a faster pace than a walking tour by going on an action-packed bike tour. Pedal past many top sights including Krakow’s Main Square, St. Mary’s Church, the Cloth Hall, St. Florian’s Gate, The Barbican, Planty Park, Wawel Royal Castle, Kazimierz, and Podgorze. Learn about the sights you pass with fascinating guide commentary along the way.
Explore Krakow on this tour of the city’s top attractions. Led by an expert guide, see Wawel Castle, the main square of the UNESCO-listed Old Town, and St. Mary’s Church.
