Guide was very knowledgeable and explained each part of the tour in detail. Worth the money we paid. Definitely take trainers as there is alot of walking and stairs! Only downside we would say is the tour groups were too close together as it often occurred that we had to stop as we had caught up with the group before.

The tour was absolutely amazing. The Auschwitz-Birkenau itself is a breathtaking experience but if we had not our guide (Mario, he was impressive) we would not be able to understand this place a 100%. This tour is a life experience and I recommend to everyone who wants to visit Auschwitz.

The guide tour did an incredible job at explaining and narrating the lifestyle the prisoners had. It gave a clear picture of the routine and distress victims were exposed to as well as historical notes that brought a bigger picture.

Me ha gustado que tuviésemos auriculares para escuchar mejor al guía, también los conocimientos del guía y del respeto con que se trató el tema pero sin dejar de contar la cruda realidad. Lo recomiendo 100%

Excellent tour guide very informative and rticulate. Showed total respect to the vices of such an atrocity Hopefully you will pass this review onto her

Head over to the Auschwitz-Birkenau Museum, one of the most visited historic destinations in the world with a tragic past. The journey from Krakow should take you about 1.5 hours. Once you arrive, you will meet your host who will give you the ticket and escort you to the group. Make your way past the queue line with this pre-booked ticket and pass through security before entering the Memorial.

At the Auschwitz I Museum, join a tour group of up to 30 people led by an authorized official Auschwitz-Birkenau guide. Get a glimpse into the heartrending treatment of the prisoners of the Holocaust and their everyday life. While Auschwitz I was the main administrative building, Auschwitz II was built for the purpose of extermination. On your tour, you will visit buildings consisting of the belongings of the Jews who entered the camps. See the ruins of cabins and crematoriums in Birkenau. Catch sight of watchtowers, railway ramps, and a former gas chamber – all of which have played a role in the industrialized genocide that took place here.

The total duration of the tour is approximately 3.5 hours. You will spend 1.5-2 hours at Auschwitz and 1-1.5 hours at Birkenau.
