    Panstwowe Muzeum Auschwitz-Birkenau
    Stop: 3 hours - Admission included
    We will pick you up from your accommodation in Krakow, then travel by bus to the site of Auschwitz-Birkenau in Oświęcim, a small Polish town, approximately 1,5 hour away from Krakow. When you arrive at your destination, you will be met by your professional guide and enter the site at Auschwitz I. Walk through the famous gate to the camp, bearing the inscription, "Arbeit macht frei", meaning "Work sets one free", and take the same route as the prisoners that were brought here during the Nazi Holocaust. After exploring the Auschwitz I complex, your driver will meet you again and take you by bus for the short journey to nearby Birkenau (Auschwitz II) where your tour will continue. Here you will see the original fences and crematoriums as well as the remains of the colossal gas chambers.

Auschwitz-Birkenau trip with Poland-Active
Apr 2019 • Family
We had a great day trip to Auschwitz-Birkenau and the trip was interesting from start to finish due to our guide Piotr. My Nan who is 91 came on the trip with my wife and I. We learned so much on the trip to Auschwitz as Piotr was full of great facts and history about everything we saw. It was just as fascinating to hear about Poland before the wall came down and my Nan could see comparisons to rationing after WWII in the UK. Auschwitz and Birkenau is such a hard hitting place and it's so difficult to get your head around the atrocity, the shear size of Birkenau takes your breath away as you realise the scale of the what took place. I had read the Tattooist of Auschwitz a month before and my Nan told us tales of what she saw in the war in cinemas when the reported on the camps. Seeing how many people visit is good and the fact that people are coming from all over the world to learn and remember stands out in your minds eye.

Auschwitz day trip
Prompt pick up from our appartment, a pleasant and more than helpful driver in Patrick A. The day itself was an eye opener and our tour guide Marcin was fantastic with a wealth of knowledge, expensive at £150 between two of us but worthwhile experience of Auschwitz.

Highly Recommended
We booked this tour on line prior to our visit in February. The booking was simple and the communication via email was faultless. The price of the tour was reasonable too. The driver picked us up on time from our hotel in a comfortable vehicle and took us to Auschwitz informing us on the route of any historic sights. Our guide on the tour was very knowledgeable at both Auschwitz and Birkenau and the journey back was effortless. The whole day lasted about 6-7 hours. We did arrange through the driver a further tour the following day on an elongated golf buggy (for want of a better phrase) to the Jewish quarter and the Ghetto. We arranged a time and again the femake driver was very prompt and due to it being a cold day clean blankets were provided. The tour lasted about 1.5 hours and was again very informative and comfortable. I would highly recommend this tour service, trustworthy, polite, knowledgeable and at a reasonable price!!!

Amazing tour!
Dec 2017 • Family
This tour was brilliant cannot fault the tour guide that we were put with at all. Marcin who was our tour guide for the day was brilliant, he spoke amazing English and explained everything in depth, me & my partner both had the best day it was very interesting. Would definitely recommend booking this tour with you again! Patryk our driver was very punctual and friendly, he was on time to pick us up and also spoke very good English. although we waited around for 20 minutes for a couple who decided not to show he kept his patience and still managed to get us there 15 mins before the tour started. Overall a very good day :)

barely any mention of Jewish people killed in Auschwitz
Nov 2017 • Business
We went on a tour of Auschwitz and Birkenau with Poland Active and we would not recommend it. The guide was a Polish nationalist and made numerous inappropriate comments. He hardly mentioned Jewish people murdered in the camps and focused on the Polish victims. Very disappointing.

Dear Visitors, We are very sorry about the bad experiences related to the visit of the state museum. We would like inform that all groups have the same program of visit. It's the same exhibition for everyone. Visit in the museum is always supervised by local licensed museum guide. We are surprised about this situation. We will look at this more carefully and take nessesery steps. We want to ensure you that we work hard to keep the highest possible stadard to deliver profesional service. Maciej Szymoniak
