Full description
On this 8-hour excursion from Krakow you’ll visit the Nazi concentration camps of Birkenau and Auschwitz and also the Schindler Factory Museum.

Birkenau was built by the prisoners of Auschwitz and by October 1941 served as an extermination camp for approximately 125,000 prisoners of war. This number continued to grow until the beginning of 1945. It has been calculated that from 1-1.5 million people were killed by that time.

Before the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau in 1945, the Nazis attempted to destroy the camp and all documentation. As they were only partially successful, the Polish government decided to restore the site as a memorial to the victims.

You’ll also visit Oscar Schindler’s Factory Museum, located in the former enamel factory. Take a journey back in time to Krakow during WWII. Schindler famously saved the lives of over 1,000 people during the Holocaust. The story and the site were brought to international attention by Steven Spielberg in his 1993 Oscar-winning movie, Schindler's List.

Would have given it 5 stars but felt that Schindlers factory tour was a misrepresentation , as it was nothing to do with Schindler , more about history of Krakow and it was rushed and kind of boring . However both the driver and the tour guide at Auschwitz were really good . Be aware not a lot of time to get something to eat in the break

Incredible experience!

The tour of Auschwitz-Birkenau was an unbelievable experience and was made all the more interesting with the fantastic English-speaking tour guide. The Schindler's List tour felt like more of a history of Krakow housed within Schindler's Factory but was nonetheless a very interesting tour. I would definitely recommend this tour with hotel pick-up option (a very swift and easy service).

Tour guide was very good and his English impressive

Everyone should visit once in their lifetime... Very informative and at times very moving and sad. Until you witness for yourself what those poor men women and children had to endure... The lies,the promises, the pure evil conditions they had to sleep in and the ultimate end of life in so many evil ways, you will never appreciate the freedom we have and this experience will stay with me for the rest of my life
