This is a direct door-to-door tour with a private guide at the Memorial including driver’s waiting time and a return transfer. You will have your private local guide who will be only at your disposal during the whole visit at the Memorial.
Our English speaking driver will take care of you for all the time during the tour. You 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 guide at the Museum and start your visit. After about two hours guided tour at Auschwitz I and a short break you will be taken by car to Auschwitz II-Birkenau where you will continue your guided visit for about an hour. After the tour the driver will take you back to your hotel or to any point within the center of Krakow – following your wish.
You will start you tour through the gates with the infamous sign: Arbeit Macht Frei (Work Sets You Free) and will continue to see the camp nearly untouched, just like it was when the Nazi left in January 1945. Just the trees have been placed at almost every street corner. You will enter the blocks turned into the Museum. Each of them having a number and a particular name. With explanation panels, signs and pictures they depict the horror that took place during the Holocaust. The educator will show you the inside of the blocks dedicated to the extermination plan, the medical experiments conducted by Doctor Mengele. The rooms are still filled with victims’ belongings, clothes, suitcases, unpaired, worn out shoes. You will see the unloading platform, watchtowers, fences, barracks, the camp bathhouse, the wall for execution, jail cells and many more.
By taking this private tour by car you have a guarantee of being taken back and forth directly and in a full comfort. Your tour with a private guide will be more individual and personalized – the guide will be only at your and your party’s disposal. You will have an opportunity to ask some questions and to get more information directly from the guide.
