What awaits you:

Go on a full-day history tour of Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial Museum, where the infamous WWII concentration camps once operated. Learn about this part of world history with a licensed guide, who will explain the significance of these camps.

Head out of Krakow in a comfortable air-conditioned minivan to first visit KL Auschwitz 1. Walk through the iron gate bearing the notorious slogan Arbeit Macht Frei, which means Work Sets You Free. See 22 brick barracks where hundreds of thousands of victims of the Holocaust were placed in.

Next, make your way to block 11, the so-called prison within the prison. Block 11 contained special torture chambers where various punishments were inflicted to prisoners. The first extermination attempts using Zyklon B took place in this block, and the only crematorium and gas chamber that are still standing are located at the end of the camp.

After the visit to KL Auschwitz 1, travel in the minivan to KL Auschwitz 2 Birkenau. This part of the camp is 25 times larger than Auschwitz 1, and was the largest of the concentration camps. Over 1 million people died here.

End your visit at the Memorial and pay your respects to all of the victims of the genocide before heading back to Krakow.

Beautiful day in Auschwitz. Transport and tickets were well arranged. The tour with the guide went a bit quickly. I would have liked a little more time but all in all it was a beautiful day.

Very good excursion, to be done, I would say, with a passionate guide like we had. Well organized except at lunchtime when we had less than 10 minutes to eat, we should allow at least 15-20 minutes

The tour guide was excellent, his English was extremely good and was very knowledgeable. Especially appreciated his word choice for subject. Transport was slightly late but was not the fault of the driver and was communicated to the group. We didn't see the barrack exhibitions but didn't feel this affected the quality of the tour and we didn't feel we missed anything. Appreciate the subject wasn't sugar-coated for tourists.

Top experience. We are French and did the tour in English, the guide was great. Patient, clear and full of anecdotes, she was captivating and lived what she was telling. 1h30 in the first camp and 1 hour in the second (very easy visit for such a large camp). We had the time we needed to take our photos even if we shouldn't hang around. The organization was top notch, information and clear directions. Boarding the shuttles quickly, good driver. 100% recommended, go for it, the value for money is great.
