Krakow: Pub, Bar & Club Crawl
- Skip the line
- Duration: 4 hours
Visit the former Nazi concentration camps at Auschwitz I and Auschwitz II-Birkenau on this 7-hour trip from Krakow. By June 1940, Jews and over 700 political criminals had been sent to Auschwitz and the atrocities had begun. Birkenau was built by Auschwitz prisoners and by October 1941 was used as an extermination camp. Between 1 and 1.5 million were killed, and approximately 90 percent of those killed were Jews. Before Auschwitz-Birkenau was liberated in January 1945, the SS attempted to blow up the camp and destroy the documentation. They were only partially successful, and the Polish government decided to restore the site as a memorial to the victims.
The staff is very polite and helpful, they provided an awesome experience for us. They were also very on time and the rides to and from Auschwitz were smooth. The informative video during the trip was also a very nice touch. Our driver was also very nice and careful!
Begin your evening at Michalik's Cave in central Krakow. Once a bustling hub for the city’s bohemian crowd, you'll see that the venue has preserved its artsy atmosphere, as you sit among paintings and caricatures of Krakow artists, writers and journalists. Relax and enjoy as the concert and dance performance begins. Learn about Polish traditions and folklore as you watch performers dressed in regional costumes tell their stories through dance and folk music. If you feel like getting up on your feet, you’ll be invited to join in with the dancing, too. Afterward, savor a 3-course dinner of traditional Polish fare amid the lively atmosphere. With appetites sated, your dinner show will conclude after the meal.
First off, this was an experience and a half! We booked for our first evening in krakow for an immersive experience and this didn’t disappoint! The music and dancing was amazing, lots of crowd participation which was real fun! My sister (who I went with) is a pretty fussy eater but managed ok with the food. I on the other hand am a foodie and it was ok for me too. Not amazing but for a experience what do you expect?! If you want to do something different on your next trip, this is the experience for you!

Magda was amazing and fantastic. I got lucky and was the only one in the group so had a “private” tour and I couldn’t have asked for anything more. She provided me with so much information, answered all my questions, and even went above and beyond to make my first-time experience in Krakow worthwhile. Thank you so much, Magda! This tour is a must with Magda. She’ll tell you everything you need to know and then some. Also, she’s a world traveler and has such a wealth of knowledge to share about all of her experiences. :)

I used this for transport both from and to the airport. On arrival our driver was waiting with a sign with my name. Unfortunately he had been waiting for 40 minutes because passport control was so slow. The evening before our departure I was getting worried as we hadn't been notified of our pick up time so I emailed. Not long after we were notified of our pick up time. On departure day, our driver was waiting outside our hotel at the agreed time. Quick, easy and reasonable airport transfer.
