Ticketing experience was easy and convenient. Our tour experienced a time change and a text message or phone call notification would have made the process less complicated however, the process was overall organized. Sarah provided a detailed experience with thorough and meaningful information.

Pickup was on time (even though it was rescheduled to a later time but this we knew the day in advance through whatsup). All information provided was to the point and the guide was really passionate and knowledgeable about the topic. Nothing really to complain about! 5/5, highly recommended as an experience, it is a must-do if you are in Krakow.

We did not like the sudden change of pick up timing and location (less than 12 hours) and the driver drove a bit recklessly

Very well organized, except for the bus drop-off, which was not in the same place at the end of the tour. The guide left very quickly and didn't give us a clear idea of where the bus would pick us up. Otherwise, a very interesting and complete tour.

Your tour begins with a 60-kilometer journey from Krakow to the Auschwitz-Birkenau camp complex. The imposing gate of Auschwitz stands in harsh contrast to the charming suburbs of Oświęcim. Counted amongst the most ghastly remnants of the Second World War, the Auschwitz-Birkenau prison complex is known for its concentration camps and extermination chambers. Between 1940 and 1944, Auschwitz remained one of the largest and most well-funded camps of the Nazi Party. On this tour, you will accompany an expert guide to explore this solemn reminder of one of history’s darkest periods. Examine the exhibits at the outdoor museum and learn more about the camp and its history from your guide. Passing by the medical experiments block and the brick barracks is a genuinely chilling experience.

Although Birkenau was just one of the 40 or so sub-camps that littered the Auschwitz complex, it quickly became infamous for its gas chambers. It is estimated that nearly a million Jews and prisoners of war were killed in Birkenau. You will spend about an hour at this sub-camp with your guide after visiting Auschwitz I. After a short educational tour of the haunting place, you will meet your driver again and head back to Krakow.
