Full description
Depart Kraków and journey back to the dark days of World War II and the Holocaust with a tour of the Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial and Museum. Board your private vehicle and listen to the on-board commentary from your guide along the way. Upon arrival at the infamous site in the town of Oświęcim, explore the former concentration camp with a guide. See original features, such as the wooden watch towers and fencing, and discover possessions that belonged to the prisoners. Listen to a detailed commentary about the history of the camp during the 3-3.5 hour guided tour. Then, join a tour of Auschwitz-Birkenau. After the tour, you can stay as long as you like exploring Birkenau at your own pace. When you are ready, travel back to Kraków in your private transfer.

A worthwhile experience made possible by our guide's assistance

Our guide was very professional and supportive in very practical ways. He arrived on time and provided us with information and personalised transport and guidance, and also had the foresight to include umbrellas against the scorching heat, adequate water and snacks for the trip back. I would have appreciated a bit more friendliness but maybe that is a cultural thing.

Very well organized and very well pre-informed about the pick up from our hotel. Alicya our guide is very knowledgeable and took very good care of us the whole day. Visiting Auschwitz Birkenau was on our bucked list for quite some time and we are very glad we booked here and had Alicya as our guide. Is was an experience we will never forget.

Great way to get from krakow to Auschwitz, air conditioned car. Our driver was on time and excellent. He was very knowledgeable about this time in Krakow and answered many of our questions, he walked us to the entrance and saw us through the security check, and returned us to our hotel. The Auschwitz tour itself was as you would expect, sad sobering and confronting, but still a good experience. Would highly recommend this tour.
