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

 Guest 13th Apr 2019
picked up outside of our hotel on time arranged, friendly driver, the visit to Auschwitz was really moving and interesting one complaint would have liked more time and slower pace to study it more arrived back at hotel shattered after a great day would use Krakow tours again thanks

The Auschwitz tour was very good. The pick up and drive from Krakow was very efficient and Artur was very good. The only thing I would say about the tour at Auschwitz is that there is so many people there, the guide moves you around very quick and more time to reflect on what happened there would be good - but it was very good although a sad place too

We found this tour very emotional. Our tour guide was extremely informative and very sincere. She was very knowledgeable and I learnt a lot about the terrible atrocities.

Informative, moving, hard hitting. We booked the tour knowing it would be hard, but really glad that we went.

Outstanding! This is a must for everyone to visit so that it never happens again. I visited Auschwitz 10 years ago and hope to be back in the future. The whole day is run in a very professional manner. The guide was exceptional. The passion in his voice and choice of words throughout the trip brought the experience to life. His respect for the more 'disturbing' displays/rooms was evident and moving. The tours are well rehearsed and run very smoothly

Everything about the tour was organised perfectly, from the easy booking process, the pick up from hotel on perfect time, the driver then gave us all the details about the tour we would be given and the tour itself was done brilliantly, with so many other visitors and tours going on it would be easy for it to be a bit chaotic but everything ran like clockwork.
