Full description
First, travel by minivan for 1 hour and 20 minutes before you arrive at the camp. Founded on 27 April 1940, Auschwitz became the site of extermination by inhumane conditions and physical destruction of prisoners. It was the biggest death camp of the Nazi regime and during your tour a licensed guide will sensitively take you to see the barbed wire fences, watchtowers, barracks, gallows and gas chambers; these depict the circumstances under which the Nazi genocide took place. Spend 2 hours here with a short 20 minute break.  You will also visit Birkenau, a short 5-minute drive from Auschwitz. Birkenau comprised of more than 300 buildings, including latrines, watchtowers and gas chambers. Although a challenge, it’s important to remember these events to make sure that this history is never repeated. Spend approximately 1.5 hours here before the 1 hour 20 minute drive back to Krakow.

    I am so glad I booked this tour - the owner of the partner, Comfort Tours Cracow, was the one who picked me and my daughter up he made sure she had a booster seat and all in all we had the easiest and best time on this tour! Highly recommended

    Would highly recommend this minivan trip to Auschwitz. We had chosen to be picked up at 11am but were contacted the evening before by our driver to say he would collect us at 8am instead, which wasn't a problem for us. We were collected from our apartment on time, the driver spoke great English and wore a mask. The minivan was modern and clean. We collected another family then set off to Auschwitz. It was a pleasant drive and everyone wore masks. Upon arrival at Auschwitz our driver took us through the entry point where we were handed over to a museum guide. She was fabulous, had lots of knowledge and was very respectful. The pace was ideal for us, we didn't feel rushed. We had a 10min break to eat the lunch we had brought with us then went back to our driver who took us to Auschwitz 2 where the same museum guide was waiting for us. After being shown around here our driver was waiting outside for us and took us back to Krakow.

    We were informed about the pick-up time in the hotel the day before, picked up punctually the day before, the driver was friendly and at least spoke to passengers as our English is not that good. He accompanied us until the tour was handed over and waited for us. Everything is easy
