Visit Auschwitz-Birkenau – the largest of the former Nazi concentration camps,  Wadowice – the home town of Pope John Paul II situated nearby and some other places closely related to our Pope. It is possible to see all those sites on one day, without any rush.

The tour starts with a visit of the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp (ca. 1 hour 15 minutes drive from Krakow). A guided tour in English at Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial and Museum is included in the total price. Our English speaking driver will take a very good care of you for all the time during the tour.  A driver will stay with you until you meet your local guide at the Museum and join your tour. After about two hours guided 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 visiting a lunch break is possible (optional, the price of lunch is not included in the total cost of the tour).

During the second part of the tour we will show you the most important places related to Pope John Paul II. The tour begins with a visit to Wadowice, the home town of Karol Wojtyła, the future Pope. There you will visit the house where he was born and the parish church where he went to pray. The next item of the tour is a visit to Kalwaria Zebrzydowska, a town boasting one of the largest European Calvary sanctuary. There is a monastery of Friars Minor Observants there and the basilica with a miraculous icon of Our Lady of Kalwaria. The sanctuary in Kalwaria Zebrzydowska was among favourite destinations of Karol Wojtyła. He often pilgrimized there as a young boy, the Archbishop of Krakow and then as the Pope as well. Kalwaria Zebrzydowska is entered on the UNESCO World Heritage List. On your way back to Kraków you will visit the Sanctuary of Divine Mercy in Łagiewniki. There is a chapel with the miraculous Jesus, I trust in you painting and relics of Saint Sister Faustina, an apostle of  Divine Mercy canonized by Pope John Paul II. There is an interesting, newly built modern basilica there consecrated by Pope John Paul II during his last visit to Poland in 2002.

Important: price do not include  entry tickets to the Auschwitz Birkenau, which are normally 45-60 PLN per person (11-14€ ) and Family Home of John Paul II Museum , which are normally 30 PLN per person (£6,  7€ or 8$).

This cost must be added to the total price of this tour.  

By taking this private tour by car you have a guarantee of being taken back and forth directly and in a full comfort. We do not do group transfers by large buses where people are sometimes driven around the city for one hour collecting other tourists before leaving Krakow.

For all our tours and transfers we provide fully comfortable, air conditioned and spacious cars to be exclusively at your disposal. See our cars here. We are fully licensed for tour and transportation services. All our drivers speak very good English.

The Auschwitz – Birkenau Memorial Museum (found 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.
