Full description
Depart Kraków and journey back to the dark days of World War II and the Holocaust with a tour of the Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial and Museum. Board your private vehicle and listen to the on-board commentary from your guide along the way. Upon arrival at the infamous site in the town of Oświęcim, explore the former concentration camp with a guide. See original features, such as the wooden watch towers and fencing, and discover possessions that belonged to the prisoners. Listen to a detailed commentary about the history of the camp during the 3-3.5 hour guided tour. Then, join a tour of Auschwitz-Birkenau. After the tour, you can stay as long as you like exploring Birkenau at your own pace. When you are ready, travel back to Kraków in your private transfer.

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!!

This tour was very important to us and so we decided to book a "private tour". As it turned out, it was an absolute hit. Alicja made this day a special one. Everything was perfectly organized! From the pick-up, the trip to Auschwitz, the organization of our guide and the subsequent return trip (including a coffee break with typical local pastries). In addition, Alicja still has a lot of "knowledge" and thus we were able to start very well prepared. Highly Recommended!

Despite we know what it is about, we had more than a fantastic day, certainly because of our driver Alicja. She gives so much for information, shows related things in advance, and nothing is too much for her. The guide in Auswitsch also did more than well, more than a big 10.
