What you'll do

Experience the Auschwitz-Birkenau Museum with a private English speaking guide.

Auschwitz is a name, and a place, that carries more emotion than potentially any other place on the planet. Experience an insightful, intimate day at this most haunting and harrowing of sites, to truly connect with the events that took place here and across Europe.

Your personal driver for the day will pick you up from any point in the city at your pre-arranged time, before embarking on the 90-minute drive to reach Auschwitz-Birkenau.

Once there, your entrance fee already paid for and organised, you will begin the tour of the Auschwitz-Birkenau Museum, under the guidance of a local expert, who will share the tragic story of this place with you. After the tour, your driver will drop you back off in Kraków at the location you have arranged.

It’s very rare that a person gains real perspective on just how horrific the Holocaust of WWII was. 1.3 million prisoners, 1.1 million killed, thousands of them merely children. The numbers are so huge and unfathomable, the human acts so difficult to understand, that it’s very hard to let the facts and figures sink in and become meaningful in an emotive, human sense.

On this tour, and through the medium of individual stories and accounts, an official museum guide will put these numbers through a human lens, so that the reality hits home. And when it does, the power of this place takes your breath away.

There’s no doubting that this tour is hugely harrowing and distressing. It’s often hard to believe that you are standing in the very spot that these atrocities occurred, which only brings the tragedies further home still. So why would you take this tour?

Well, for one very simple reason: Auschwitz should never be forgotten.

Understand the stories of the individuals who endured and survived the horrors that occurred in the camp, and come away enlightened, humbled and awe-struck at the courage of those who lived through them.

All this makes a visit to Auschwitz not only one of the most important experiences in Kraków, but one of the most important experiences one could have anywhere in the world.
