Settle into your seat in a comfortable shuttle for the ride out to the site and watch a 55-minute documentary screened to give you the background and history of the camp on your way. Once you arrive at Auschwitz-Birkenau, the largest of the Nazi death camps, head out on a tour through the exhibitions in the prison blocks, the gas chambers, and the crematorium.

Step inside the Martydrom Museum to see sculptures and artwork created by former prisoners, examine exhibits chronicling the atrocities of the Holocaust along the way, and feel free to ask questions of your guide before you return to your shuttle and ride back to Krakow.

5/5 May 15, 2019

This was a very humbling and thought provoking tour but it's a must-do if you are in Krakow. It's very well organised, our guide was excellent and very knowledgeable. The tour around Auschwitz takes about 1.5 hours, then you are taken to Birkenau, the walk around this camp take around 1 hour.

3/5 Apr 30, 2019

Auschwitz-Birkenau are the sites of unspeakable atrocities.It was very important that every ethnic groups mentioned that was detained or exterminated. I felt the tour of each camp was rushed and we had no time to look around or read the signs posted as the tour groups had to move at a given pace. In order to honour the memory of those who were held in the camps, I feel that the tour should allow the participants time to wander and let the entire nature of the environment and what occurred there, sink in. It was almost disrespectful to those gone before, not to allow more time.
