About Auschwitz & Birkenau

Should one visit Auschwitz? It is a difficult question, and a deeply personal one. For many people, be they pilgrims on a private journey, backpackers exploring eastern Europe, historians, travellers or native Poles, it is a must. The proximity to Krakow (Cracow) makes a visit to the museums a very real option – the town of Oswiecim (Auschwitz) is an hour and a half journey by car from Krakow. And certainly, having seen the camps (regardless of how many other groups are also filing through) few will regret the experience. The camps and their legacy are an indelible part of today’s world, and visiting them is both sobering and edifying.

The basic structures of both camps have survived, and the experience of these is amplified by a number of exhibitions about the major victims of the atrocities, chiefly the Jews, but also Poles, Gypsies and Russians. There are many different exhibits, and the apparatus of the camps, as well as the personal belongings left behind by the victims will speak for themselves.

Tour Information

We will drive you to the museum at Auschwitz from Krakow. We will also arrange for you to have a tour with a museum guide – all are experts on the camps and their legacy. The tour will also include nearby Birkenau (the expansive satellite of the Auschwitz camp), which for many visitors makes a more powerful impression than the first.

As always, we offer unique tours, free of overcrowded buses and full of worthwhile information – on site and on the way there! Our guides are knowledgeable and spirited locals and will make sure you get the most out of your tour.

Auschwitz & Birkenau Reviews

 Andrew & Tracey Donovan 25th Aug 2017
8 A must do visit - thought provoking. My only disappointment was that our pick up was late and we didn't have time for the shop etc particulaly at Birkenau _ 15 or 20 more minutes would have made a big difference.

Fantastic job - driver was very friendly and spoke English well. Museum guides are terrific and make no doubt about the horrors that happened there.
 Anne Crowley 28th May 2017
It's hard to say brilliant for such a moving place, but speaking of the tour and guide and service this was a 10
 Selina Hughes 23rd May 2017
I loved every moment of this trip Completely worth a visit so interesting and surreal.
 Guest 23rd May 2017
Everything was great. The only changes I would recommend would be to give more time at each camp. Auschwitz I has several really good exhibitions that we did not look at and I think some time (maybe 30 minutes or so) given to visitors to freely wander around Birkenau would be useful.
 Nicki Davidson 22nd May 2017
I am very pleased that we visited Auschwitz, however, the tour guide we had was very young and had only been a guide for a week so that knowledge that she passed on was very limited. We were disappointed with the guide and found ourselves trying to listen in on other groups.

Very informative tour, emotional and hard hitting.
