auschwitz/birkenau tour and saltmine.

Hi, has anyone booked the combined auschwitz/birkenau tour, and saltmine tour, ? I am just wondering if this would be to much to do all in one day,. As we are only there for 3 days we also want to see as much of the town as possible, so thats why i am considering it. Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanking everyone in advance.

It can be done, but you won't be able to take your time at Auschwitz and visit the parts that aren't covered in the standard tours. Personally, I found I needed time to decompress and gather myself together after visiting Auschwitz and wouldn't have wanted to take part in a more traditional 'packaged' tourist experience straight away.

It is possible, unlikely by public transport, and not all tour companies have timings that make it possible

Some do a combined tour and take you straight to the saltmine. be careful if it is a return to krakow on one coach and the get on another bus coach. You need to make sure you have plenty of time in case of any delays,

Check the tours of Krakow Tours and Krakow Shuttle - both do a (long) day - 1st stop Auschwitz, then to Wieliczka with a bag lunch to eat along the way. Total time maybe 10.5 hours and the tours incude pick up and drop off back to your hotel.
