Full description
Learn about the history and gain a deeper understanding of the Holocaust and the Nazi concentration camps on a tour of Auschwitz-Birkenau from Krakow. An English-speaking driver will pick you up from a pre-arranged meeting point in Krakow and transfer you in a comfortable vehicle. Upon arrival at the Auschwitz Museum, a local guide will be provided in one of the five available languages or a booklet in over 12 languages, depending on the option booked. Visit both Auschwitz I and Auschwitz II-Birkenau to acquire a proper sense of the place that has become the symbol of the Holocaust as well as Nazi crimes against Poles, Romas, and other groups. Become more educated about the UNESCO World Heritage Site as you visit the remaining prison blocks, gas chambers, and crematoria buildings.

    A necessary guided tour, if only to grasp the scale of the infamous site. Our organizer Francesco was in a good communicative mood and perfectly managed his group of 4 different nationalities. Our guide spoke excellent French, answered all my questions and provided our small group (only 8 people, one chance) all the useful information. I highly recommend!

    The visit to Auschwitz Birkenau was perfect. Of course as a covid so very few people! The driver picked us up and rested as agreed. There was a French guide waiting for us. We were a group of 5 French for the 4 hours of visit! What to enjoy the place and its history! Very good experience!

    A complete experience! Pick up on time by minivan, the first guide (who remained in the minivan) gave us information during the trip, then entrusted us to a guide for the visit of the two camps (Auschwitz I and Auschwitz II said Birkenau ). This guide reproduced the contextual elements well, chronologically. Too bad she remained so informative. The lunch break is very short (15 minutes), provide a sandwich. Everything, including the journey, lasted 6 hours.
