Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial and Museum Guided Tour from Krakow
From US$ 40.60
Lowest Price Guaranteed
Overview
Learn the significance of Auschwitz-Birkenau State Museum when you visit with a guide who shares stories about its history, its former prisoners, and its survivors. Learn about the complex and its sad past as you walk through the grounds of Auschwitz I and Birkenau (Auschwitz II). Entrance fees and round-trip transport from Krakow are provided, so you can focus on the more important details of your visit.
What to Expect
This Auschwitz-Birkenau State Museum tour picks you up from your hotel early in the morning. Hop aboard a comfortable minivan limited to eight people. On board, you can take advantage of the free Wi-Fi and watch a Holocaust documentary, if it’s available at the time.
Once you arrive at the museum, follow a guide around both Auschwitz I and Birkenau (Auschwitz II) as you see the former roads, watchtowers, railway ramps, fences, crematoriums, and gas chambers. Your guide makes sure to tell you stories as you go through the exhibits and memorials, too.
After your Auschwitz-Birkenau State Museum tour, get back into your minivan for the ride to Krakow, and get dropped back at your hotel upon arrival.

A difficult experience but everyone should undertake this journey

Organisation and driver very good. The film of what happened was shown on route. It was very hard hitting and difficult to watch. The tour guide was excellent, very informative. A long, hard day but well worth visiting.

We were anxious about the pickup time as well but the tour company emailed us via Tripadvser on the day before the trip was due to confirm pick up time. They also on the day let us know by text that they were running late.

You generally all go to one pick up point, they didn't collect us from our hotel.
