Auschwitz-Birkenau Guided Full-Day Tour from Krakow with Private Transport

Select Date and Travelers
2 travelers
    What to Expect
    Meet a driver at your centrally-located Krakow hotel at a time that suits you—tours run between the hours of 8am and 6pm. Traveling in a comfortable, private car, the journey takes roughly 70 minutes each way, and you’ll have the option to watch “The Liberation of Auschwitz” on your way to the camps.

    Upon arrival at Auschwitz-Birkenau, join a guided tour of the moving UNESCO World Heritage Centre, with groups of up to 30 people led by English, Spanish, French, German, or Italian-speaking guides.

    Using a headset throughout the tour, you’ll have 3.5 hours to explore the museum exhibition, barracks, and long rows of gas chamber chimneys. Much of the concentration camp is unchanged since liberation, and it offers a vivid glimpse of the wartime genocide carried out by German Nazis.

    Auschwitz and Birkenau are roughly 1.9 miles (3 km.) apart, and transport between the camps is provided, as well as a short break before the guided tour and in between the camps. Following the tour of Auschwitz-Birkenau, begin the return trip to Krakow, where this excursion concludes with drop-off at your hotel.

    We phoned and booked our tours whilst in Krakow, the lady on the phone was polite and friendly. We booked a private tour as it was hour and half from our hotel and didn't fancy travelling around picking others up. The driver was early but...More

    We used Discover Krakow for our tours and they use mimi-vans that hold about 15 people. However, you may join with other groups once you get to Auschwitz, I think we ended up with about 30.
