Auschwitz Tour

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 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 Cracow. 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.

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.

Really thought I had to go to see this place to fully understand the events that happened there. I would of loved more time to stand and contemplate the surroundings but the guides keep you moving at a steady pace. I did feel rushed. Once visited though never forgotten.

Guest 25th June 2016

Very efficient organization. Friendly personnel. Not one single negative point.

Barry Williams 22nd June 2016

Duane Bridger 22nd June 2016

Very insightful. The guide was knowledgable and passionate.

Mike Tomcik 21st June 2016

Our tour guide was not very receptive to questions,and we couldn't stay long in any one spot, but considering the crowd that needed to move along I don't think it could have been better.

Cheryl Jones 18th June 2016

The tour was excellent! Very well organised! The tour guide was so knowledgable, and very interesting to listen to. She was very friendly and obviously enjoyed her job. Her name was Magda. I think she told us everything she knew.

Angela Cosgrove 4th June 2016

Very well organised from start to finish and guide was very informative.

Susan Graham 1st June 2016

Our driver lovely. He was courteous and very attentive. The guide was very knowledgeable but a little quiet. We were herded like cattle, and I was disappointed as I would have liked a little time to reflect at the monument. If you stopped for a moment, you would have to sprint to catch up!

Gail 26th May 2016

The trip was very good, however it is also sad to the no what all of those people went through. Very informative.

Guest 26th May 2016

Excellent tour and arrangements. Pick-up at hotel was prompt and guide at Auschwitz introduced us to its horrors in a most sensitive manner.

Tom Stafford 30th April 2016

Very sad but glad we went, Agata was excellent.

Peter Lucas 20th April 2016

very awe inspiring , a lot of people and sometimes difficult to understand the guide , but we understand the ptoblem we were well looked after and have no complaints

Elaine Muir 18th April 2016

we loved the tour very chilling

Guest 16th April 2016

The only issue we had was that we could have done with more time at Auschwitz 1 to look at the outside exhibition, as there was a lot of input from survivors / family etc. Also at Auschwitz - Birkenhau we would have liked time at the end to have a walk around on our own taking in all we had been told and maybe gone up the watch tower

Sophie Coker 2nd April 2016

Deeply affecting and draining experience but absolutely wouldn't have missed it for anything. I'll never forget some of the things I saw. Our tour guide had a brilliant style, respectful, sombre and informed.

Richard Whitehurst 2nd April 2016

Punctual, Well organised, Great Tour, the tour guide of the camp was excellent!

The service you provided was excellent. The driver was lovely and very helpful. And the time keeping was excellent too. Auschwitz was great to see but very sad and hard on your heart.

Guest 14th March 2016

Great tour, very enriching experience. Totally worth it. The quick snack between the visit of the camps is a good addition.

Natalie McKenna 10th March 2016

Absolutely moving, but handled with care and respect by guides and all staff.Our guide WITOLD was especially good, bringing it to life with humanity.

Guest 28th February 2016


Orla Kelly 25th February 2016

Our tour was the best tour we have ever been on. Our guide, Andrew Kennedy was amazing. He was so knowledgeable.Everything on the day ran very smoothly.

Guest 18th February 2016

Good organisation. Sandwich can better

Dominic Macari 4th February 2016

Excellent. The only reason I have marked it as 9 and not 10 is that I would have liked to have had perhaps an hour say to wander around on my own.

Gordon Ohara 30th January 2016

Very good enjoyed

OMER VANDEBROECK 25th January 2016

Very good timing and organisation. Just maybe this comment: the sandwich for lunch was no good according to the quality of food in Krakow.

Pasquale Manta 23rd January 2016

Thank you for an incredible experience . This was something that i couldnt of imagined. Very moving.

Nigel Davies 9th January 2016

A well run tour to an important museum

Guest 8th January 2016

A bit strange to say about this tour, but it was a great tour. It gave us a very good impression about the place. It is a place that everybody should visit to remember what we have now. The transfer was perfect on time. One comment that's why it is not a 10...we were the last to be picked up and we had to sit together in the front next to the driver. This was a bit tight. And only because we are not really fat it was possible. In Auschwitz we had a very good guide. The time we had to wait before we could enter the museum was quite long. Not sure why they only have 3 security scans. We heard in Summer it is even more crowded.

Alexia Rees 24th December 2015

Fascinating tour, very sensitively done, exposing the horror and misery of the place. Well paced - slow enough to give us some detail, fast enough that we could not dwell on the atrocities too much that could have made the tour emotionally traumatic. Very efficient pick up and delivery back to our hotel and sandwich was very welcome.

Breda Donnellan 18th December 2015

Our guide was fantastic...she really was very heartfelt delivering the information and was open to answering any questions.Would definitely recommend

Francis Rendle 17th December 2015

If you go to Krakow you have got to visit the Auschwitz,Birkenau museums a sad reminder of what the human-race is capable of.

Guest 14th December 2015

Slightly rushed. Did not get to see the film that was advertised.

Guest 12th December 2015

Very sombre trip but would thoroughly recommend it.

Belinda Dunbar 11th December 2015

I mean, it's hard to say it was good, because obviously the context of the tour is not good, however, it was great in that you received a substantial overview of what occurred and the impact of the actions of the Nazi's. Emotionally draining.

Guest 7th December 2015

9 Very good
