Auschwitz - the memorable experience...
You can take a private Auschwitz Tour straight after arrival to the Krakow Airport. By doing so, you save your time as the Memorial is located only about one hour drive from the airport. This is a direct, door-to-door transfer by a private car with our driver’s waiting time in Auschwitz. Our smart, friendly and professional driver will be awaiting you in the arrival hall with a sign bearing your name. You can also have lunch or get lunch-boxes before you start your tour.
After the visit of the Memorial we will take you back to the airport or to Krakow city center, depending on your travel itinerary.
English speaking driver will take a very good care of you for all the time during the tour. You will arrive about half hour before your tour, as there’s about 20-25 minute time required for the security check. This applies to all types of Auschwitz tours. A driver will stay with you until you meet your local, English speaking guide at the Museum and join your group. After about two hours of your tour at Auschwitz I and a short break you will be taken to Auschwitz II-Birkenau where you will continue your guided visit for about an hour. After completing the tour our driver will take you to your hotel. You will pay for the whole service after the tour.

– 10.30 a.m. November till March
– 11.30 a.m. April and October
– 12.30 May to September

Auschwitz – Birkenau Memorial Museum (founded in 1947) was included on the UNESCO List of World Heritage Sites. The first transport of Polish political prisoner deportees arrived in Auschwitz on June 14, 1940. This day is regarded as the date the camp started to function. Afterwards, Soviet Prisoners of War, Gypsies and prisoners of many other nationalities from all over the German-occupied Europe were transported here to suffer and die in hellish conditions. In 1942, notably after the construction of the nearby Auschwitz II-Birkenau concentration camp, destruction of the European Jews started to come. Most of them were immediately put to death in the gas chambers of Birkenau. Those who spared immediate death by being selected for labour were systematically stripped of their individual identities. Most prisoners survived at Auschwitz only a few weeks or months. A visit to Auschwitz will let you learn more about this tragic time in the world’s history.
