Full description

Learn about the impacts of World War II and the Holocaust on this guided tour to the Auschwitz-Birkenau State Museum that includes round-trip transportation from your hotel/accommodation in Kraków.

Travel 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 the 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.

Comfortable journey with pick-up and drop off. Tour guide was really good . There was a confusion about the lunch , as the booking listed lunch included but was not the case . It was fine as one is not too hungry during this visit . For the purpose of the visit, all was fine

The driver was fantastic and on time. The guide was equally good and very informative about Auschwitz and birkenau. The only thing I would have an issue with is it felt rushed but with so many people there I understand it. Price was also very fair and if in Krakow again would not hesitate in using this company again

The tour overall was very smooth and had no issues. The only reason I haven't given it a perfect score is because although the tour is about 7 hours long; around 3 hours is spent on picking up other guests from their hotels and driving to and from Krakow. The tour felt rushed and if you are very interested in the history and details of things then you may feel like you missed out on a bit.
