Depending on what option you chose for this 7-hour day trip from Krakow, you could be picked up anywhere between 7:30am to 11:00am. If you picked the shared option, you’ll be picked up in a shared vehicle, but if you picked either of the other two options (private or round-trip transport), you’ll be picked up in a private vehicle.

Once you’re in your vehicle, relax and enjoy the ride over to Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial and Museum. The drive takes about one hour.

The camps have been preserved since 1947, and your guide fills you in on tons of interesting facts as you go.

If you picked the round-trip transport with no guided tour option, then explore the camps on your own. After your time at Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial and Museum, get back in your vehicle for the 1-hour ride to Krakow. Get dropped off at your hotel around 3pm or 4pm.

This isn't an easy tour, or day out, but everyone should go. Our driver and host for the day was Damien, and he was fantastic. Highly knowledgable, friendly, and genuine from beginning to end. A memorable visit - thank you Damien.

Auschwitz-Birkenau Camps Tour.

This is a must for anyone visiting the Krakow. Damien our driver was excellent. He picked us up on time and was very knowledgeable about the area and his English was excellent. The visit to the camps was sobering and the tour guide was also very knowledgeable. The commentary was done through a headset which was clear to understand and hear. Damien waited around for us during the Auschwitz tour which lasted about 1.5 hours and then drove us to Birkenau for the second part of the tour. This part of the tour lasted about an hour. Damien was very accommodating and recommended some excellent restaurants. I highly recommend this tour.

Private driver provided rich conversion regarding the history of Poland and local to Krakow and the two camps. The tour guide was knowledgeable and quite experienced. Be prepared for the emotional impact of the tour, a lot of walking for the elderly, the winter cold and mud. The tour moves fast so take your photos quickly and keep moving! Totally recommend!

A very humbling visit to a very sad place. You can feel the haunted souls and can only try and imagine what these poor people went through. No description will suffice what you experience here, people should go so we learn from horrors of the past.

We had an amazing guide called Christopher who brought both the camps to life and recounted the stories of the people in the camps with such feeling and sensitivity. He looked after everyone and helped us all understand how horrific Auschwitz and BIrkenau was.

Took the trip from Krakow, which took just over an hour. It was a moving and gruesome experience, but one that was well worthwhile. It was staggering how state sanctioned mass murder on this scale was committed by 'ordinary' people ... it still left me thinking 'how could have this happened?

Due to Polish government decision to close all museums and cultural centres our tour was cancelled. However after 3 emails we have not been reimbursed. Do not book with this group unless you are ok about losing money in circumstances outside your control. Extremely disappointed.

Dear Jen Your money will be refund, please be patient. We will make refunds after dates of travel. I do not understand your position in this hard times for everyone. I would like to ask you to delete this review because it is a not fair to atack my good opinion. All the best Damian PS. Dear Jen I have checked that your refund was already made before your review for next time please double check your email.

It feels good to have been there and seen all the horrible history on one of it's actual places. The guide could have been a tint bit better at English but all in all very good. Make sure to have warm clothes and shoes if you are there in winter.

Hard to rate a tour where the subject is so horrid. You must go, but you wish that the events had never happened. Saying that, the tour was excellently delivered by the museum tour operator, providing fact after fact about the events that took place here. Everyone should go on this tour, and everyone should reflect on the events here.

Our driver arrived on time and was extremely polite and professional. He showed us a few sights as we left krakow. Once at the site he showed us to our group and showed us where to meet. Extremely professional and such a lovely way to do the tour. Arriving and leaving in a car rather than bus. Would recommend private transfer always.

Tour with Damien of Auschwitz.

Very interesting and informative tour which is breathtaking for all the wrong reasons at times. A must visit and I'd definitely recommend this tour. 5* for Damien. Private shuttle and an informative chat with Damien (in perfect English) on the way there (and we all slept most of the way back as this tour is tiring in terms of walking but more in an emotional sense).

Excellent driver, very smooth and competent. Took us to join the tour group and made sure we knew what we were doing and where to go. Unfortunately the tour guide was not the best, although she was knowledgeable she had a droning voice and was difficult to understand. However, that being said, the whole experience was very good and well organised.

The Auschwitz Experience of a lifetime
Valandant
, Oct 2019
This was a well arranged visit with transport from hotel and tickets to Auschwitz. One gets a complete tour of both sites with an excellent guide. A lot of ground to cover in limited time but sufficient for most people who want the experience. One important point - if booking a child (under 15?) if you buy a Child ticket, there is NO ticket! Therefore whilst the child is admitted to the venue no radio headphones for theAuschwitz part of the guided tour are available. So better to book child as an adult for the full experience.
icon Response from Host , Oct 2019
Thank you for using our service and your feedback. Auschwitz Museum does not advise visit children under 14 year old. So why we do not offer headphones sets for children. I hope to meet you again in Krakow. All the best Damian

The trip isn't cheap, but if you're like me and just want to get from a to b without much fuss, then I can thoroughly recommend this company. Our driver was so friendly and couldnt do enough to make sure we were happy with everything, even down to the choice of music he played. Auschwitz is a harrowing experience and it is something I think everyone should do to remind us what intolerance can turn into. However, the whole experience was made much easier by our well organised trip. Thanks to our lovely driver.

The driver Arthur did a great job of providing us information while driving us to and from Auschwitz. We learnt a lot about not only the site but also the culture and life in Poland. That's exactly what we were looking for given the short duration of our stay and this being our first time in the country. The tour of Auschwitz itself was very informative but a little bit hurried. There is such a great volume of tourists that its hard for the guides to stop and spend a lot of time at every spot. But the guide was very open to questions and we were able to gather a lot of details from him. We also got to see both Auschwitz and Birkenau within 3-4 hours which was done efficiently.
