Embark on a poignant journey with our Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial and Museum tours, offering private or shared options from Krakow. Your experience begins with a pickup in a private vehicle, accompanied by an insightful introduction from a museum representative. Choose between a 3.5-hour or 6-hour guided tour, exploring Auschwitz I and Auschwitz II-Birkenau with a knowledgeable local guide. Witness the solemnity of original structures such as watchtowers, residential barracks, a gas chamber, and a crematorium. Inside, explore surviving photos, documents, and personal belongings that provide a powerful insight into the lives affected by Nazi crimes. For those on the 6-hour private tour, a lunch break is included before visiting Auschwitz II-Birkenau. After the tour, linger at your own pace or with your local expert guide. Following your exploration, we'll drive you back to Krakow, concluding with a drop-off at your starting location. This leaves you centrally located to further discover the captivating city of Krakow.
