Tour Information


Overview
  • The Auschwitz-Birkenau State Museum & Memorial in Oświęcim, about 70 km from Krakow, was created on the grounds of the former Nazi German concentration camp. It is the most recognizable symbol of the Holocaust and human genocide in the world. The Memorial Site is an area of almost 200 ha, over 150 buildings, and about 300 ruins, including remains of gas chambers and crematoria destroyed by the German Nazis.

    The trip includes permanent exhibitions, original buildings of the main Auschwitz camp and the most important buildings of the Auschwitz (II) - Birkenau camp. Join a group of up to 30 fellow travellers and explore this harrowing period in human history led by a professional English-speaking guide. The price includes pickup from your accommodation or one of the meeting points, an admission ticket, a tour with a professional guide in English, a drink and transport back to Krakow. You can choose to end your trip at one of 5 central drop-off points.

Very well organized by the tour operators. Communication was good, a day before we were informed about our pickup time and location. Jakob and his colleague were very helpful, the drive was comfortable to and fro. The packed veg lunch included a bottle of water, sandwich and cookies. The memorial itself is a must visit and I highly recommend this tour if you don't want to drive yourself.

Overall great trip. Myself and my partner booked this trip approximately 15 hours before we went, it was confirmed within 1 hour of booking and a driver collected us from the hotel we were staying. We were taken to Auschwitz in a private vehicle being us 2 and the driver. Upon arriving we joined a group with a very knowledgeable English speaking tour guide. After Auschwitz tour we were taken to Birkenau for the second part of the tour and given a lunch bag with sandwich, biscuit and water. After Birkenau tour we were dropped at a location of our choice in Kraków. Very efficient I would highly recommend.

The tour was exellently run from start to finish. The driver was very curtious and on time. Lunch was provided and was very fresh. The guide in both camps (same person) was very knowledgeable, and respectful. Obviously this is a tour of an historic site where horrendous,sub-human and barbaric acts occured and it was treated that way. Something everyone should see, young and old.

This was a very educational visit and our tour guide was very knowledgeable and informative.
Minor criticism is that lunch was rushed as packages were provided to guests prior to transit from Auschwitz to Birkenau giving you less than 5 minutes to enjoy tasty food provided.

This tour was well organised from beginning to end. Pick up on time,nice friendly driver. Excellent tour guide around the museum. Lunch box was included,very good and umbrellas provided.

Firstly the tour bus was very nice and comfortable and lunch box they provided (don’t forget to confirm you want it) was a tasty surprise.
The tour itself? The guide was fantastic. She was very knowledgeable and she led the tour around Auschwitz-Birkenau very well. It was a sobering experience. We’d definitely recommend them.

Our driver Tom was awesome. Picked us up right on time and was extremely flexible and informative. The tour of Auschwitz-Birkenau was extremely moving and the guide was also extremely informative. I would recommend the private driver/tour for all groups large and small.

We booked a last minute trip to Auschwitz because our other local tour operator canceled our first and our second booking. They said the museum was closed, which wasn't true.
Viator arranged a very quick and simple booking for us. The one picking us op, Martin and the bus driver were both very kind. The museum guide, Mihou I believe he was called, was very nice and told us a lot during the tour. He wasn't a native speaker, but he did his very best to speak English to the best of his ability. We were lucky as there were barely any visitors due to an event for the 75th anniversary of the liberation of the camp. It is a shocking experience, though the world has to know about the atrocities that took place.

It was an interesting journey of the past that will make us wonder the cruelty of the Germans. Praying for the victims that their souls rest in peace.

Whether you're interested in history or not, I would highly recommend this tour.

I was collected from the agreed location promptly by a friendly driver and tour guide. The journey to Auschwitz was smooth and took just over an hour.

We had the same guide for both Auschwitz and Birkenau camps. He told the sobering story of life in the two camps with genhine passion and dignity. I liked how in some of the more sombre places (gas Chambers, shooting wall, etc.), he muted his microphone out of respect for the 1.1 million people killed there.

Unlike some other reviews, I didn't feel rushed between the exhibits and there was plenty of opportunity to collect thoughts, ask questions and take photographs.

Thank you to all involved for this memorable experience.

It's very hard to imagine the horrors that went on at Aufchwitz.
It is very upsetting to think of the suffering and cruelty the prisoners had to endure.
An excellent tour and a very informative guide.

Very well organised and informative trip to both camps. Guide Francesco was knowledgable and paced the tour well to give everyone a chance to read through the information in both museums.
Pick up on time and fast transfer and good communication with time to get refreshments and comfort breaks along the way. Would thoroughly recommend this trip if you are planning on visiting Auschwitz
