Full description

You will travel from Krakow in a minivan with 8 or 22 seats. After the 1.5-hour drive to the site you’ll have a short break before the tour. Your guided tour begins at Auschwitz, the main camp, in a group of no more than 30 visitors. You’ll be led by a professional, museum-employed guide. Receivers and earpieces are provided by the Auschwitz Museum to ensure that you’re able to hear the guide clearly. You’ll spend around 2 hours taking in all the permanent exhibitions and buildings at the main camp, and then have a 15-minute break. Following the break there will be a short drive to Birkenau, the second part of the camp, located about 3 km from Auschwitz. The Birkenau visit lasts approximately 1 hour. For regular guided tours, the Auschwitz-Birkenau Museum limits the time each group spends on the grounds to 3.5 hours including the break in between sites. An extra paid lunch box can also be ordered from your driver.

The tour was well organised and ran on time. The transport was very nice and comfortable. The guide was very knowledgeable and smoothly ran us through everything. There was a good pace to the information which was important given the context, it would have been easy to get upset by what was being witnessed, but the steady flow of commentary prevented us from reflecting too much and getting distracted in misery.

We really enjoyed the tour organized by this company! We only had two days in Krakow and wanted to visit Auschwitz, this solution is ideal for short stays. The time on site could certainly be extended, but the 4-hour visit (excluding breaks) and the journey already fill up the day well. The driver was great, really friendly, very good driver. We recommend this experience with your eyes closed!

The guide was really good! She explained everything very clear and in an interesting way! The tour group wasn't too big. The only bad thing was the information about the lunch box. The site said we would get a lunchbox but we didn't. Overall a very good tour! I definetely recommend it!
