Know More about this tour

Pay your respects at Auschwitz-Birkenau, the former German Nazi concentration and extermination camp. Auschwitz has become a primary symbol of the Holocaust. It was a network of concentration and extermination camps built and operated by the Third Reich in Nazi Germany-occupied Poland during World War II. The collection of the museum contains original documents, suitcases, shoes and other belongings of murdered prisoners. There you will find original fences, wooden watchtowers and railway ramps have been preserved.

Visit includes also short ride to Birkenau camp, which functioned as a war camp, extermination camp and place from people were sent to labor in Nazi Germany. More than 90 per cent of prisoners, mostly Jews, were killed there. Birkenau was mostly destroyed by the retreating Germans.

In Krakow, a local guide will take you for a tour around the city. You will see among others Town Hall Tower, St. Mary’s Basilica, Krakow Barbicane and ‘Sukiennice‘ (Cloth Hall) – renaissance major center of international trade. The most interesting sight is the Wawel Hill with Cathedral and Royal Castle - place of royal coronations, weddings and funerals. Some of its oldest stone buildings can be dated back to 10th century.

  • This tour was great, except I got cheated on the price. Buyer beware.

  • Wonderful day and top marks to driver Piort.

  • I had wanted to come to Auschwitz for years simply to pay respects to the millions who were murdered here, firstly our guide Piota was amazing, nothing was too much to ask, we upgraded our car for more comfort and we were on this tour on our own which is how we like it.
    When at camps 1 and 2 we joined another tour operator who was very good but I just feel as though we were rushed too much, I would have liked a bit of time on my own to ponder and reflect.
    in Hindsight I would have split the two tours and taken a two day tour with perhaps a night in Krakow. The full day was too much for us physically challenged people.
    we asked our guide if we could cut our tour of Krakow short so he arranged for us to have some time to ourselves in the City square which was nice, although we invited him along with us for the walk in the cool night air before heading back to Warsaw.
    I cannot say enough about Piota I hope I have spelled that correctly he was fabulous and highly recommend asking for him as your guide.

  • My dad and I decided to do this day trip and could not have made a better decision...our tour guide Przymek was AMAZING and MADE THE TREK for us...not only did he do the basics like be on time for each event, but he continually went above and beyond in various ways including always being early, making sure we were okay before leaving us with tour guides, making multiple pit stops on the 4 hour drive each way, getting us special pierogis for lunch, showing us sites out of the way, and letting me lay down and sleep in the back while entertaining my dad...we were lucky we even convinced him to join us for dinner after! Awesome guide, awesome day, very accommodating, five stars!!!

  • Our driver was excellent. The guide at old town Krakow was adequate--her English vocabulary was limited so that made her explanation a little difficult to follow.
    The educator guide at Auschwitz was excellent.

  • Excellent tour. Very Professional.

  • Too much to squeeze into one day. 3.5 - 4 hours driving without a rest stop from Warsaw to Krakow. The Krakow tour guide was very knowledgeable and really did a nice job showing us around the beautiful city in the time allotted. There was adequate time to get a look at the key sites, but that was all. After Krakow we had a lunch in a decent restaurant but by this time I was realizing the trip to Auschwitz was going to be too short to really take in the history. We didn't arrive at Auschwitz until late afternoon. Our drivers were a bit disorganized and wasted 30-40 minutes talking to assorted tour guides before we were actually assigned a guide and began our tour. Auschwitz was very rushed. The guide was very knowledgable but literally lost people on our tour because he was walking so fast from exhibit to exhibit. We certainly took in the history but there wasn't time to reflect on each of the sites in the camp. We got back to our hotel around 10PM and we did not stop on the drive home for a dinner or break.

    I would use Viator again but not suggest a day as packed as Krakow and Auschwitz from a Warsaw departure.

  • This tour was very long but very worth it. The drivers were very professional and both guided tours in Krakow and Auschwitz were exceptional. This tour is highly recommended

  • For us, more of a pilgrimage than a tour. The visit to Crakow was brief. I wish it had been longer but the peak experience was Auschwitz/Birkenau. It confounds me that anyone could deny the Holocaust after seeing this death camp. The evidence of the deadly activities is there in vivid and stark reality. Our guide, Magdalena, was knowledgeable and conducted the tour with dignity and wisdom.

  • This is a trip well worth taking. You get to experience and see so much all in one day. The tour company, AB Poland Travel ,does an exceptional job to make sure you are taken care of from beginning to end. I was picked up early in the morning at 7:30am from my hotel in Warsaw by the driver Piotr, who was excellent and assured that all of us were comfortable and had what we needed. He even made sure we had access to the wifi in the very comfortable Mercedes van.
    Before arriving to Auschwitz, we stopped to have a good lunch consisting of soup Choice of Chicken noodle or tomato and an entree Chicken or Pork, which hit the spot and provided energy for the day ahead. Piotr introduced us to the english speaking guide, who would provide us with all the facts and details of Auschwitz and Krakow. He was great, easy to understand and knew his history. Following the tours of both camps in Aushwitz Camp 1 and Birkenou, we then made our way to Krakow for the 2 hour tour. Krakow is an absolutely beautiful little city and a good way to end the day. I wish I had more time there but a good opportunity to come back again.
    For this tour, I recommend ensuring you wear comfortable shoes as you will walk a lot and be sure to dress warmly, and in layers and bring an umbrella as the weather can change quickly. I was there towards the end of April..the day started sunny and throughout the day, we experienced a little wet snow and rain.
    I would recommend doing this tour with AB Poland Travel to anyone that is wanting to experience Auschwitz and Krakow in one day. They make sure you are well taken care of.
