Description

The Auschwitz-Birkenau complex was established in 1940 and in operation for five years. In that time, 1.5 million people perished here. On this Auschwitz tour from Krakow, you'll learn the facts as you tour the world's most famous concentration camp with a guide.

Walking through Auschwitz is a sobering experience and the weight of what occurred inside hangs on the air. Being this close to a dark chapter of history will leave you changed.

Board your air-conditioned bus in Krakow and watch a documentary en route. Once you're through the gate bearing the words Arbeit macht frei – "Work sets you free" – visit the somber memorial at Auschwitz-Birkenau and meet your guide for a tour.

You'll learn the harrowing facts of the Holocaust and everyday life of the prisoners as you tour Auschwitz I, the administrative center of Auschwitz death camp, and Auschwitz II, designed and built for the gruesome purpose of extermination.

You'll visit buildings in Auschwitz I that now house belongings of the millions of Jews who entered the camps, and pass by the ruins of cabins and crematoriums in Birkenau. Along the way you'll see original roads, fences, watchtowers, and railway ramps, and enter a former gas chamber – all of which paint an eye-opening picture of the industrialized genocide that took place here.

Bus was comfy, and driver was very professional. Tour guide was knowledgeable, experience was moving but very insightful! Great experience and well worth the trip.

The experience overall was excellent however the only downside was the pick up. On the email confirmation it gives a location of pick up but actually you have to register in “discover kraków” which we only knew after enquiring with another couple who was waiting around. After being there in plenty of time waiting outside, we then went in register and was classed as ‘late’ by the very rude assistant.

The pick up, travel and guide were well organized. It is a very large site with many visitors. We were pleased by the efficiency of the visit, smooth despite the volume of tourists. Powerful memorial.
