Explore the UNESCO-listed former Nazi concentration camp. The place of Holocaust – the inhuman madness of the contemporary history.

 

For better understanding the history of Auschwitz we suggest a visit with an educator. For this reason we would like to offer you our guided tour in English with a private, direct door-to-door transfer. We will provide a comfortable car just for you. You won’t need to buy any tickets on your own, we will have them prearranged.

 

Our courteous English-speaking driver will take care of you at the Memorial securing all the arrangements until you start your tour with a local Museum guide. You won’t need to worry about anything. You will visit Auschwitz and Birkenau in a group with a local  guide. The tour will last 3 and a half hours, you will be  equipped with headphones to hear the guide properly. After about two hour guided tour at Auschwitz I and a short break you will be taken to Auschwitz II-Birkenau where you will continue your guided visit.

 

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.

 

 

The whole tour will last no longer than 7 hours and we will drop you off at your hotel or at any other place within Krakow city center, following your wish.

 

You are welcome to contact us in case or any enquiry. We will tailor your tour to suit your needs.

Prime Tours were great from beginning to end. Good communication in the booking process. Straightforward transport to Auschwitz with clear instructions on what we needed to do. When we threw them a problem by asking to leave early and book us a flight at short notice, they performed admirably. We were on a plane to Warsaw with two and a half hours of asking for their help. It is hard to imagine how another company could have beaten their service. Steven, (London, UK)
