Full description
Funded by the Nazi party in 1940, Auschwitz-Birkenau became both a symbol of human suffering and a witness to physical and emotional exhaustion. Learn about the history of the largest concentration camp from WWII with a professional licensed guide provided by the Auschwitz - Birkenau Museum. Your host will meet you at the entrance to the museum, where you will enter with your pre-booked ticket after passing through the security check. The first part of the museum visit takes approximately 1 hour 20 minutes to 1 hours 50 minutes. Between the first and second part there will be a 10-15 minute break, when you can eat your lunch. After the break, you will board a bus for the second part, a visit of Auschwitz II Birkenau, where you will spend around an hour with the same guide.

We were informed 24 hours in advance that the beginning of the tour had changed - but it wasn't particularly dramatic. The organization was good, all information was available by email or in the app, apart from the fact that our contact person on site was a little late and it got a bit stressful. The tour itself was in German and with headphones through which you could hear the tour guide. The group was mixed, not exclusively participants from this provider. We were satisfied, I just think that next time I would book a guided tour of the museum itself. If you had questions, the people on site didn't help but referred you to the provider.

Nice tour, if the term is applicable to visiting a KZ. The guide was very nice and informative. The only thing that turned it down a little bit to my taste is too many mentions of compensations/reparations not being paid to poles(whilst paid to the others). It's fine to mention it once, but repeating it over and over during 2-3 hours sounds more like envy or resentment.

A 10! Essential tour. Our native guide from Poland but with a degree in Hispanic Philology knew how to convey the history perfectly. His passion for his work was evident. It is important to visit these sites to preserve the historical memory and that these atrocities are not relived. Speechless! Impressive
