What You Can Expect

Auschwitz-Birkenau Small-Group Tour from Krakow

Learn about the history of the Holocaust during your Auschwitz-Birkenau tour

Start your tour with a pickup from Market Square in central Krakow or your Krakow hotel, and relax on the 1.5-hour minivan drive to Auschwitz. Along the way, watch an onboard documentary to learn about the history of the Holocaust and prepare yourself for your Auschwitz visit.

You’ll be one of the first groups to enter the Auschwitz-Birkenau State Museum, comprising the Auschwitz I concentration camp and Auschwitz II extermination camp, also known as Auschwitz-Birkenau. Auschwitz is the most infamous of all the Holocaust concentration camps, where an estimated 1.5 million people were killed during World War II. Today, millions of visitors come to pay tribute to the lives lost and the atrocities this site witnessed under the hands of Adolf Hitler.

Listen to your guide explain the origins of the camp and hear what life was like for prisoners here. See original roads, fences, watchtowers and railway ramps as you explore the camp, and head inside the museum to explore the poignant exhibits detailing the stories your guide touched on during the tour.

Roughly halfway through the tour, a 15-minute break is factored in to your itinerary. Use this free time to enjoy your lunch box that includes two sandwiches, fruit and bottled water. After approximately three hours at Auschwitz, travel back to central Krakow and finish with a drop-off in town or at your hotel.

The tour bus was comfortable and the lady that picked us up was very patient and accomodating. The tour itself is great but in my opinion was not long enough. We wanted to see more in both camps but we are very satisfied. The tour guide spoke too softly but overall was very good.

Well wow talk about an experience...we all learnt about WWII in school and knew that millions of Jews died. But once I walked into the Auschwitz-Birkenau camps it really hit home the extent of how terrible it really was. It is impossible to fully comprehend the atrocities that occurred there, but after having walked through the buildings, seeing what I saw brought me close to tears. To see personal articles left behind of those who never managed to escape was very sobering. It is something everyone needs to experience, to understand the true extent of how terrifying the Nazis really were...
