    What to Expect
    Established in the early 1940s by the Nazis, Auschwitz was originally intended for Polish political prisoners. Later, when it was extended to include the neighboring site of Birkenau, it became an extermination camp for primarily European Jews, killing an estimated 1.1 million people.

    Begin your trip at your Krakow hotel, where a driver will meet you at your preferred pickup time. Arrive outside the town of Oświęcim around 1.5 hours later, where you’ll join up with your guide at the camp’s visitor center.

    Enter the gates of the complex under the chilling inscription of ‘Arbeit macht frei’ (‘Work sets you free’) and explore the key buildings and exhibitions that preserve the memory of the many lives lost there.

    Learn how the Nazi camp functioned as you pass the barracks and watchtowers, as well as the gas chambers and crematoriums. Your guide will take care to discuss the harrowing stories in a sensitive manner as you go. You will have a brief break to eat a pre-packed lunch (own expense), as there are no eating facilities at the camp.

    Afterward, visit the camp's memorial, and spend a quiet moment to remember the lives of the victims. Your tour will conclude with private transportation back to your Krakow hotel.

    We did a guided tour around both of these sites and the memorials were very moving and informative. The minibus collected us at our hotel and we watched a video on the 1.5 hr journey to the camps, which was great for context. There are places to eat and toilets ( 2zls) when

    I highly recommend this company for a day tour of Auschwitz-Birkenau. (Booked through Viator) We were on time, the bus was comfy (with a video shown) and had an informative and friendly tour guide with us for the day who told us so many facts and some personal stories. You could

    Used Discover Cracow for both the Salt Mines & Auschwitz tours, a little rushed but hard to squeeze everything in but all very informative. Also 20% discount on return airport trip. Great service & organization on both tours, couldn’t really fault them

    Excellent guide on the tour, very informative and very clear speaking. Feel there could have been some kind of commentary on the bus telling about the area and places We travelled through, but only a comment didn’t take away from the actual tour.
