Gain a better understanding for the history of World War II and Nazi Germany’s effect on Poland on this 7-hour day trip to Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial and Museum from Krakow. You can choose either a private or shared guided tour including transport, or you can choose round-trip private transport without a guided tour. Whichever option you choose, walk the concentration camps where some of the most terrible and saddest events of World War II happened.
  • 7-hour day trip to Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial and Museum from Krakow
  • Choose between a private or shared guided tour with transport, or round-trip transport without a tour guide
  • Visit the former German Nazi camp, and learn about its dark history
  • Krakow hotel pickup and drop-off included
  • This day trip isn’t recommended for children nine years of age or younger
  • A minimum of two people are required for each booking
Depending on what option you chose for this 7-hour day trip from Krakow, you could be picked up anywhere between 7:30am to 11:00am. If you picked the shared option, you’ll be picked up in a shared vehicle, but if you picked either of the other two options (private or round-trip transport), you’ll be picked up in a private vehicle.
Once you’re in your vehicle, relax and enjoy the ride over to Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial and Museum. The drive takes about one hour. If you chose the private or shared option, follow your guide at the UNESCO World Heritage Site for a guided 1.5-hour tour of Auschwitz I and Auschwitz II–Birkenau. The camps have been preserved since 1947, and your guide fills you in on tons of interesting facts as you go.
If you picked the round-trip transport with no guided tour option, then explore the camps on your own. After your time at Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial and Museum, get back in your vehicle for the 1-hour ride to Krakow. Get dropped off at your hotel around 3pm or 4pm.
Please note: A minimum of two people per booking is required.

A very moving and thought provoking trip. Damien, who was a really nice friendly chap, picked us up promptly from our hotel. He proved to be an excellent guide offering lots of info and answering many questions. Highly recommend shuttle4u for this trip.

Mind changing experience. Our tour was fantastically organized. Our guide was very knowledgeable and very patient to make sure everyone in our group saw everything and answered questions we had. The sheer size of the camps took our breath away certainly had no idea just how big they were seeing programmes on TV cannot prepare you for the sights/stories of what happened at this atrocity. Would recommend booking a sight seeing trip anywhere with Viator Tours they were excellent.

The tour from beginning to end was very efficient. There were 8 in our party we were picked up promptly from our hotel in Krakow in two mini buses. The drivers Damien and Bart were charming and very informative. On arrival at Auschwitz they organise the tickets your headsets and then hand you over to your designated guide in Auschwitz. The tour is excellent there is a shuttle bus which takes you to the Birkenau site and then returns you to the car park where the drivers Damien and Bart are waiting to return you to Krakow. I absolutely can't fault it.

Private car was the way to go! Our driver was very good, and we had time to ourselves at either end of the trip to just walk the site.

Damian was excellent and gave us great information and history on the drive in his car to Birkenau and Auschwitz. Auschwitz entry tickets are included. Birkenau entry is free. Auschwitz tour with English speaking guide was outstanding. Damian was very flexible with our timeframe. Highly recommend.
