Experience

Highlights
  • Visit the Auschwitz and Birkenau Nazi concentration camps
  • Stop for lunch at a local restaurant
  • Take a guided tour of historic Krakow, one of Poland’s most popular destinations
Full description
Your full-day excursion begins with a pick-up at your Warsaw hotel by an English-speaking driver. 

The first stop on the program is at the Auschwitz Nazi Concentration Camp, where you’ll have a guided tour that includes the Birkenau Camp. Auschwitz was the name given to a network of concentration and extermination camps built and operated by the Third Reich in Polish areas annexed by Nazi Germany during World War II.

You’ll visit the Museum, which contains original documents, suitcases, shoes, and other belongings of murdered prisoners. You’ll also see original fences, wooden watchtowers, and railway ramps that have been preserved.

Afterwards, the driver will take you to a local restaurant for lunch in either Auschwitz or Krakow, depending on the timing. 

In Krakow you’ll see historic sites located around the city. Your tour guide will take you to see the Town Hall Tower, St. Mary’s Basilica, Krakow Barbicane, and Sukiennice, or Cloth Hall. The most interesting sight is Wawel Hill with its Cathedral and Castle, a place of royal coronations, weddings, and funerals.

Some of the oldest stone buildings on the Hill date back to 10th century. In a cave at the foot of the Hill, on the bank of the Vistula River, was the lair of the Wawel Dragon, which is now a popular tourist stop. 

After the tour you’ll head back to Warsaw, arriving at around 23:00 or a bit later.

Trip and Krakow / Auschwitz super

Lunch was a huge disaster. Our driver called 1 hour in advance to order 2 vegan menus. Unfortunately it didn't work. Service staff rude and overwhelmed. After 15 minutes of waiting and multiple requests we finally got 1 liter of water but no glasses. Finally, even after multiple requests, the glasses. They were unable to bring a salad to the starter. Finally got a plate of spaghetti after 45 minutes of waiting. I can only recommend to take this restaurant out of the program. The city tour of Krakow and Auschwitz was very positive. Very pleasant driver.

The trip though many hours was very well organized, the van very comfortable and the driver Piotr excellent. Both destinations, were one of the best experience in our lives. We undoubtedly recommend it and we will definitely come back to stay and see more about Krakow, which is just marvelous.
