What You Can Expect

Auschwitz-Birkenau Small-Group Tour from Krakow

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

Established in the early 1940s by the Nazis, Auschwitz was originally intended for Polish political prisoners. Later, when it was extended to include the neighboring site of Birkenau, it became a larger complex for primarily European Jews, killing an estimated 1.1 million people.

Begin your half-day trip with pickup at your Krakow hotel or in the city’s Main Square. Accompanied by your local guide, you'll 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. 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.

Prior to our humbling visit we did not know which tour to choose , having scrolled through the reviews we settled on the small group tour . We were picked up at our hotel on time as stated by one of the company's reps who spoke perfect English and were soon on our way after two other pick ups . The mini van was spacious and the seats comfortable . On arrival we was shown were the toilets were and was then introduced to our guide , what a really nice chap . He explained the protocol to us , there was ten people in our group . We were lead through to the front of the rather large Kew and straight through security. We was then all issued with our audio reciveres and the first part of the tour in Auschwitz 1 began . The guide was very fantastic and informative leading us through the buildings and explaining there perpose , he was open to questions the whole time . After the first part of the tour we had chance for a drink and supplied lunch which was fine . After a short journey we arrived at Auschwitz Birkenau and the tour continued for about an hour and half . We were dropped off at our hotel after the tour . Highly recommend.

Everything about this tour was exceptional, from our driver to our tour guide. They both went out if their way to make this an interesting and unforgettable experience. I especially appreciated that it was a small group so that we could ask questions and take our time at places we wanted to linger.
