It was very well organised and very well informed,I would have liked just a little more time to have taken more in and to have read more information but I also understand that it was very busy and it certainly did not take away from my experience.The guide was so helpful and friendly.A very worthwhile visit.

First of all I had booked the field trip in Italian, the day before I was notified that the field trip would be in English. I had booked at 11:30 a.m., the only field trip available was at 6 a.m. I had requested a ham sandwich, was given pan carre with jam. I had requested a ride back to the hotel, was dropped off 2 km away.

The organization of the whole day is excellent, the only jarring note was that having booked the tour with an Italian guide, we were told two days before that it was no longer available and would be in English. Not a small change. Also, the bus does not take you back to the pickup location but you have to be careful to get off at the right stop.

Your tour begins with a 60-kilometer journey from Krakow to the Auschwitz-Birkenau camp complex. The imposing gate of Auschwitz stands in harsh contrast to the charming suburbs of Oświęcim. Counted amongst the most ghastly remnants of the Second World War, the Auschwitz-Birkenau prison complex is known for its concentration camps and extermination chambers. Between 1940 and 1944, Auschwitz remained one of the largest and most well-funded camps of the Nazi Party. On this tour, you will accompany an expert guide to explore this solemn reminder of one of history’s darkest periods. Examine the exhibits at the outdoor museum and learn more about the camp and its history from your guide. Passing by the medical experiments block and the brick barracks is a genuinely chilling experience.

Although Birkenau was just one of the 40 or so sub-camps that littered the Auschwitz complex, it quickly became infamous for its gas chambers. It is estimated that nearly a million Jews and prisoners of war were killed in Birkenau. You will spend about an hour at this sub-camp with your guide after visiting Auschwitz I. After a short educational tour of the haunting place, you will meet your driver again and head back to Krakow.
