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.
