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

 Colin Trenouth 1st Apr 2018
Very organised. Driver turned up on time. The trip was comfortable. Once at the complex the organisation was excellent.
 Neil Lavis 25th Mar 2018
Would have been 10, if it wasn’t so rushed.
 Ellie Shilling 20th Mar 2018

 Adrian Tyldesley 11th Mar 2018
Very educational .extremely interesting but sad
 Guest 2nd Mar 2018
Really interesting of course but the visit it self is down in a hurry and it is difficult to follow, and to get time to integrate things we hear. Especially with teens who ask themselves a lot of questions it would be great to take more time for the visit itself on site.

Very nice driver, and excellent English-speaking guide at Auschwitz. Very sad place but very respectful guide and very informative.
 William Gary Larkham 9th Feb 2018
Very good tour, very sad story! Think that everyone needs to come here to learn and see for themselves. Great history lesson.
 M. Button 4th Feb 2018
