8. From Warsaw: Treblinka Half-Day Private Tour with Car
The guide will pick you up directly from your hotel or apartment at 09.00 am. Please remember to have your breakfast before and take the clothes appropriate to the weather forecasts. We pick up our guests from all the Warsaw hotels and apartments accessible by car. The drive to Treblinka takes around 1 hour and 30 minutes. It’s a chance to experience the Polish countryside and ask your guide questions. He’s your host, and his passion is to make you understand Poland. So don’t miss that chance. After arriving at the forest near Treblinka village, you visit a museum and memorial to World War II's second-deadliest Nazi extermination camp. First, visit a museum with a miniature camp model and watch survivors' moving testimonies. Next, following the symbolic train tracks, you walk towards the impressive Treblinka memorial. Made of over 17,000 stones, the monument commemorates over 700,000 extermination camp victims. Learn dire stories of transportation of the European Jews to this camp, and learn more about the revolt in Treblinka in the summer of 1943. After contemplation at the Treblinka memorial, you return to Warsaw, the original starting point. Please note that the tour visits Treblinka II, a former extermination camp only. Treblinka I, the former labour camp, is omitted. Transfer to Warsaw is the next chance to chat with your guide. And don’t worry - these 1.5 hours will pass quickly. After arrival in Warsaw, it’s time to say goodbye. Pick a place, and your guide will drop you off there.
