The saddest thing that’s happened in recent history, but one of the most interesting and eye-opening days of my life. It’s about an hour’s drive from Krakow to Auschwitz but it’s definitely worth it. Super informative tour guide and a well planned day

This is a very educating experience. It is a must if you are interested in learning about the Holocaust.
We book the tour with private transportation, and were picked up right in the front of our hotel by Maciek who was very attentive, a great conversationalist and a great driver, we felt very safe while riding with him, we even took a little nap on our way back to the hotel ☺️. He made sure we had every information we needed and was attentive to get help us with lunch to enjoy during the brief break of the guided tour.

As per the tour, it starts in Auschwitz and it lasts about 1.5 to 2 hrs, then we were taken on a bus to Birkenau which was 3 km away, and there lasted about 1.5 hours. Our tour guide was great, very detailed, had a great pace and very very knowledgeable.

Surreal experience, very hard to describe how to feel after seeing the two camps. But to summarise, the tour guide was brilliant, she had a lot of knowledge, and clearly took pride in her job when talking to the group. Anyone who’s interested in learning more about a major, but horrific part of history - 100% recommend doing this trip - it’s as education as it’s also saddening.

I can’t recommend this tour enough! Our tour guide was absolutely fantastic, he was extremely knowledgable and you could tell that it meant a lot to him to educate everyone and honour the lives of the people that died in the camps. Our driver was also very nice. If you are looking for a tour then pick this one 100%, it is fantastic value for money! I feel that visiting Aushwitz is a must if you are coming to Krakow, it is an extremely moving but necessary experience.

This tour is overrated on Tripadvisor in my opinion. Let’s start from the beginning. You are picked up by a driver who doesn’t explain anything about how the day is going to be. He did not provide any kind of useful information and we had no idea what to expect.
Once you get to the first concentration camp ( 1h15 drive from krakow ) you are literally given 9 mins to use the toilets or have a coffe . Not enough time to do both. The pick up was at 7:55am and unfortunately breakfast at the hotel starts at 8:00am so we didn’t have time to have breakfast. No covid safety regulations are made in place in the van and all passengers did not wear a mask the entire journey. This made us very uncomfortable the entire time considering the situation we are all living in the world. No social distance, no safety and no respect. The driver didn’t say anything about.
The tour is already pretty depressing as you can imagine but the guide was so dull and lifeless to make the tour even more depressing. She had no microphone in the second place and you could barely hear her.
After the tour you are given again 10 minutes break to eat. Again not enough time if you need to use toilets. We skipped lunch.
After the second concentration camp , we were already at 13:00pm on the van to make our way back. They say the tour is 7 hours but in reality is shorter and rushed. We recommend giving more time to people to have lunch and make everyone respect the safety covid regulations on board. I am not happy with the organisation overall. Book with Kraków Explorer instead.

Dear Irene, Thank you for taking the time to share your opinion about our services. It is regrettable that your tour to Auschwitz and Birkenau did not satisfy you. Please allow me to address a couple of your concerns. All our drivers always inform you about the journey time to the museum after picking up the guests. During each journey, he must focus on safe driving the the most important thing - safety first. The next information he communicates on the spot about a toilet break, etc. is always around 10/15 minutes maximum. Unfortunately, due to the specific of the trip and the place, it is not possible to delay the group's entry to the camp. If it is late, it loses the line to enter and has to wait another 40/50 minutes to enter the museum. Our driver always has a mask during the journey, we cannot force other passengers to put on Masks, but as you noticed, the driver drew the attention of travelers and put them on. As you noticed, the trip lasted 7 hours from picking up guests from the hotel to bringing them back to the hotel in Krakow. The offer also includes a guided tour of Auschwitz Birkenau, which takes a total of 3 hours 30 minutes. You have headphones in the first camp, there are no headphones in Birkenau , these are the rules in Auschwitz, it doesn't depend on us. Also, the break after the first visit is 10 to 15 minutes for all companies, not only ours, and here is the same rule, the group must not be late for the tour in Birkenau. Please understand that we do not have any influence on guides inside the camps. Everyday we have different guide provide by muzeum. Auschwitz Birkenau Musuem is a state owned institution, and in fact due to millions of tourists each year visiting the camps, they have sometimes problems with proper organization. We send your complains there, but no answer usually. I am really sorry for that, but that is the problem of over-visited places sometimes. We would love to change it somehow but it is out of our control. Also please note, that all the tour companies providing 'tours' to Auschwitz have exactly the same problem. I would like to inform you that you chosen Shared Transport and group tour options, which results in adapting to the rules that prevail in this type of trip. Our offer also includes the possibility of booking a private transport as well as a private guide only for you for the whole day. Best Regards Thomas
