What You Can Expect
Begin your half-day trip with pickup at your Krakow hotel or in the city’s Main Square. Accompanied by your local guide, travel out of the city to the town of Oswiecim, roughly an hour west. A documentary on the history of the Holocaust will be available on board for some insightful background before reaching the Auschwitz-Birkenau complex.
Your small group will be one of the first to enter the Auschwitz-Birkenau State Museum onsite. Your guide will explain the camp’s history in a sensitive manner as you tour the grounds and museum exhibitions, paying homage to the lives lost.
There is no café at Auschwitz-Birkenau, but midway through the tour you will be given a break to eat a provided boxed lunch, including two sandwiches, bottled water and fruit. Your trip will conclude with drop-off back at your Krakow 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.
We were a group of 8 on this trip, the tour lady was very informative.
Very informative and heartfelt tour.
Knowledgeable guide handled with sensitivity. Good length of tour and logistics well managed.
An excellent tour guide led us through these sobering sites. Her knowledge and gravitas kept us all engaged and mindful of the horrors of these hellish places.

I booked a small tour of auschwitz for my husbands birthday as he is very intrested in ww2, from start to finish everythingwas well organised, our tour guide was fantastic ,he gave us lots of information, the tour itself was very emotional and if your in krakow you should make the effort to go you wont be disappointed but do take hankies
Really enjoyable tour. Minibus was prompt picking us up and the guide was very pleasant and informative.
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...
