Only fault occurred when we had a change of pick up time and venue changed. All previous communication had been via email and we were notified via WhatsApp of the changes, which we nearly missed.

Communication about pick-up times and locations. The general organization, everything was well-paced, the transport was comfortable and the pick-up impeccable. Nothing to say, it was perfect. Special mention for the schedule: yes, it's very early, but it's worth it, very few people, the chance to take your time, take photos without tourists on top, etc.

Beautiful tour! pity only for the change of the tour organization time (I had booked the hotel pickup at 9:30 am, but the day before it was moved to 7:10 am).

The booking, and the tour were excellent. The tour guide held nothing back, they were quite honest with the details of events that occurred.

Set up in the early 1940s by the Nazis, Auschwitz was originally designed to house Polish political prisoners. When it extended to include the neighboring site of Birkenau, the area turned into an extermination camp for Jews. This is where 1.1 million people lost their lives.

Inside the Auschwitz-Birkenau Camp

Your tour begins with a hotel pick-up from Krakow. Once you reach the town of Oświęcim, start your exploration of one of the darkest chapters in European history. Enter the gate of the complex, and see the haunting sign, 'Arbeit macht frei' ('Work sets you free'). This is where inmates were tattooed, shaved, disinfected, and handed their striped prison uniforms. Follow your expert multilingual guide through the buildings and exhibitions. Pay your respects to Holocaust victims, and listen to stories about the genocide that changed the world. Your guide will offer a sensitive tour with an insight into the life in the camps, and the many horrors that took place here. See some of the personal possessions that belonged to the prisoners - a reminder of what should never happen again. You will get to tour both the KL Auschwitz and KL Birkenau camps, as well as visit the remaining prison blocks, gas chambers, and crematoria buildings. At Birkenau, observe the remains of the railway ramp where the prisoners would be transported. At the end of the tour, you will be dropped off back at your hotel in Krakow.
