Full description
Explore the dark history of the Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial and Museum on a small-group guided tour from Krakow. After pickup at your hotel or meeting point, an English-speaking driver will accompany you by a comfortable minibus and transfer you from Krakow to Oswiecim, where Auschwitz-Birkenau is situated. Save time by skipping the line with your pre-booked fast-track entrance tickets.

Discover the history of the Holocaust and the Second World War on a 3.5-hour tour of the site. A local museum guide will lead you through both the Auschwitz I and Auschwitz II-Birkenau camps in a small group of up to 20 people. This special sized group means that you'll get a fuller understanding of the importance of this place.

Visit the permanent exhibitions and buildings, see the barracks where prisoners once lived, and pause at the first former gas chamber at Auschwitz I to remember those who lost their lives. Walk by the unloading ramp and learn from your guide about the remains of the largest death installations in Auschwitz II-Birkenau. Not all buildings are visited during the tour, due to the size of the Memorial and time limitations. 

Travel back to Krakow by air-conditioned bus after the tour finishes. The duration of the tour, including transfer times and short breaks, is around 6 to 7 hours.
