Full description
The biggest advantage of our offer is its private nature and the fact that you decide how you want to spend this day. Our services are always private and personalized. We will do everything to make this day special. Your guide will pick you up from your hotel or other location at the appointed time, from where you will travel to Auschwitz in a comfortable car. During the ride, you will hear about the history of the place, which will help you prepare for your visit. After arriving at the place, under the care of your guide, you will go to the main building, from where, under the care of a museum representative, you will visit the site of the former concentration camp Auschwitz I and the death camp - Auschwitz II - Birkenau. During the approximately 3.5-hour guided tour, you'll see original features such as wooden watchtowers and fences, residential barracks, a gas chamber, and a crematorium. Inside the buildings, you will see surviving photos, documents and personal belongings of the victims of Nazi crimes. On special request, we can also book you a special tour lasting 6 hours. After the official tour, you can stay as long as you like in the Auschwitz II-Birkenau camp. Your private driver is also a local guide and will be happy to show you more. When you are ready, we will drive you back to Krakow, and if you wish, we will complete your tour with a visit to the Jewish Quarter of Krakow, the Krakow Ghetto, or Oskar Schindler's Factory.

Our tour organisers ""Krakow4you" were excellent from start to finish, from the moment Alicja met us at our hotel she drove the 4 of us to Auchwitz & Birkenau. Whilst driving she gave us all the history about the trip and the local area,she then proceeded to get us all through passport control and onto Margaret ( not certain of the Polish pronouncement ) who would take over and give us an in depth history lesson on the 2 camps. Once both camps had been seen,which was an unbelievable experience Alicja drove us back to the hotel. Many thanks to "Kraków4you".

We would thoroughly recommend Krakow4you private tours, luxury transport, and beautifully hosted by Alicja. Alicja was a font of knowledge, giving us lots of useful background information on our Auschwitz tour, and also helping us understand the Polish people and culture, Alicja also gave us some great local recommendations, for example suggesting Morskie Oko for some traditional Polish food which we loved. Our actual tour of Aushchwitz - Birkenau was respectful, informative, humbling and emotional.

Our tour guide, was well informed from the moment she picked us up at 0630 until or return to Krackow she continually provided interesting facts and stories of not just Auschwitz, but Krakow as well. She explained things in such detail, that only someone who has studied the material would respect. The tour through Auschwitz was more of a walking memorial to the innocent souls who perished in this place. I would highly recommend her to anyone who wants visit this place and seriously feel the pain and sufferring through her words, you won't be disappointed. 5 stars!!
