Auschwitz and salt mines

Hi I am travelling to krakow in July for three days. I want to visit both Auschwitz and the salt mines but as I only have three days in total I was hoping to visit both these sites in one day. Is this a crazy idea? I have read other posts about how emotionally and physically tiring a visit to auschwitz can be. Has anyone visited both these sites in one day? What tour company would be the best to book with to get the most out of the visit to the two sites.

Thanks in advance :)

I'd recommend Krakow Tours (.co.uk) who do the combo using a 6-person van so "group" delays are minimised. It's impossible via public transport. KT will organise a snack to eat en route if you ask them. Don't delay, though, as they get very booked up.

It is possible to do both in a day, Some people even say that doing something very different after Auschwitz is a good idea.

I too would recommend krakowtours.co.uk for such a trip.

Few of the bigger tour companies will get you back from Auschwitz to Krakow in time for their trip to the mine.

As s scottishpoet says, the bigger coach operators often return to central Krakow after Auschwitz whereas Krakow Tours (and, I think, Krakow Shuttle) go straight from Auschwitz to Wieliczka.It's still a 10.5-11 hour day, mind you - you'll be ready for a relaxing evening on the rynek!
