Full description

Visit the Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial and Museum with the convenience of a pre-booked, fast-track entrance ticket. Uncover the dark past of the former concentration camps and see the remaining buildings and original artifacts on a poignant tour with a licensed guide. After making your own journey to the memorial site, be greeted at the entrance to Auschwitz I by a host who will give you your skip-the-line ticket and prepare you for the guided tours. Once inside the Auschwitz I Museum, embark on a walking tour with one of the museum's official guides and begin to explore the remains of the Nazi camp's barracks, watchtowers, and crematoriums. With the help of the provided headset, listen as your guide tells about the ghastly Nazi crimes committed in the camps and hear stories of the everyday lives of the prisoners. Next, take a bus to the Auschwitz-Birkenau II Memorial for a guided walking tour. Witness gas chambers and the remains of the railway that transported prisoners to the camps. Commemorate the camp’s victims and discover stories of survival in the memorial site. Afterward, feel free to walk around on your own with as much time as desired inside Auschwitz-Birkenau II.

    The guide was very Informative. The only negative point I would say is by the end of the tour I experienced a bit of hurry and the guide didn't give much information. But the first part in museum was really impressive and informative compared to the second which was in birkenau.

    The guide was a great guy. Little bit nervous but very helpful and kind. The I give 4 out of 5 is because we had paid fast track entrance and it wasn’t fast at all, we had to wait in line for 45 minutes to an hour. The guide said that everyone is waiting and there is no fast track this day. Never mind it was a great experience at a very good, in my opinion, price. They where professionals.
