Full description

Spend an hour and fifteen minutes in an air-conditioned bus, as you depart Krakow for a confronting day of reflection at the Auschwitz-Birkenau camp complex, a solemn place that leaves a lasting impression on all visitors, and an important memorial to the victims of the Holocaust.


Visit the museum and memorial in the suburbs of Oświęcim, about 60 kilometers west of Krakow. Upon arrival meet a professional guide who will show you around the site and speak of its dark history. Receive a lunch box, to take a break with during the tour.


Discover the tragic history of the largest concentration camp of the Holocaust, funded by the Nazi party in 1940, Auschwitz-Birkenau became both a symbol of human suffering and a witness to physical and emotional exhaustion. Learn how it became the final resting place for millions of people, mostly Jews, put to their death in the hideous gas chambers.


Pass through the gate with the inscription “Arbeit Macht Frei" (work sets you free) to enter Auschwitz I, where your guide will show you around the preserved area and explain the history of this place. 


Then, spend about one hour at the second camp at Birkenau, where mass killings took place as part of the Nazi “Final Solution to the Jewish Question”, before meeting your driver for the return journey to Kraków.

We were kept up to date with any changes to pick up points and times.Philip ( I think that his name, sorry if I got this wrong) was very helpful and made sure everyone felt safe during the travel. On arrival our tour guide was exceptional, was knowledgable, emphatic and allowed everyone to ask any questions. I would recommend, it’s worth visiting

The actual tour was excellent, and the guide was very knowledgeable. The only issue we had was that on the afternoon of the day before the tour I got an email saying that instead of the tour starting at 9am (the time I had booked), we had to leave at 6am, necessitating getting up at 5am, because the pick up point, which was originally at our hotel, was also changed to somewhere remote (only a 10 minute walk away). We had been up at 3am the morning before to get our flight so we weren't best pleased to be getting up at 5am the next morning. The tour can be cancelled free of charge as long as it's at least 24hrs before the tour starts, however we were informed of the time change within this time frame so we were not able to cancel. I heard that this had happened to others as well. We then spent the first hour driving around Krakow picking up other people on the tour. So at 7am we were still in Krakow with a 90 minute drive to Auschwitz. The tour started at 8:50am 4hrs after we got up!
