Full description
Meet your driver and get picked up from your accommodation in Warsaw in the early morning. This private trip starts the day with a drive to Auschwitz-Birkenau Concentration Camp. When you arrive at the site, you will embark on a 3.5 hours guided group tour of Auschwitz and Birkenau with a guide speaking your chosen language. Start in the Auschwitz concentration camp and learn about how it was established by German Nazis on the outskirts of the town Oswiecim in 1940. After the war, the camp was turned into a museum displaying evidence of the genocide, which you will have the opportunity to browse. In the museum watch a film made after the liberation of the camp shown in various languages. After spending time in Auschwitz head over to the Birkenau section of the concentration camp. Discover how, in 1941, the German Nazis established a new camp called Auschwitz II Birkenau. In 1942-1945, approximately 1.5 million people lived and died here. Most of them (90%) were Jews, others were Poles, Gypsies, Russians, and prisoners from 28 countries of Europe. In 1979, Auschwitz–Birkenau Concentration Camp was listed as a UNESCO World Culture and National Heritage Site. Depart Auschwitz-Birkenau for a 1.5 hours journey to Krakow. You will have three hours of free time to see the Main Market Square in Krakow, the biggest Medieval old town square in Europe. In the Old Town you can also see Wawel Hill where the Cathedral and the Royal Castle are, the Town Hall Tower, St. Mary’s Basilica, Krakow Barbican and Sukiennice, famously known as the Cloth Hall, thousands of bars and delightful regional restaurants, many historic buildings, and horse-driven cabs. During the trip there will be time to eat lunch in a restaurant. You will get picked up after your time in Krakow and returned to Warsaw where you will be dropped off at your accommodation in the evening.

During my trip to Poland I used AB Everest for both the Full-Day Private Tour From Warsaw to Auschwitz/ Krakow and an airport transfer. I couldnt have asked for a better experience, the team was incredible! From a communications standpoint, they were always accessible, easy to communicate with, and the friendliest team. For pick ups, they were always on time (if not early) and had my name on a card so I could spot them easily. For the long drives I felt very safe and comfortable. There vehicles were large, spacious, and clean. On my trip it started to snow and I felt very safe and in good hands on the road. Once we got to Auschwitz, I was escorted in to the museum and handed off to the tour so that there was no room for confusion. When the tour was over, AB was there and waiting right on time! I loved having free time to roam around in Krakow and when I was ready to head back to Warsaw, AB was ready and waiting to go when I was. could not have had a better experience

Our driver Agnes was great, and the tour overall was exactly what we were looking for. The local tour guide at Auschwitz was very knowledgeable and kept a good pace for us to see everything. The amount of time at Krakow was also good to take in the highlights of the city, plus a bonus of seeing the Christmas market while we were there. Agnes stayed in good contact, stayed on schedule, and gave us plenty of free time in the city to explore. Only reason that it didn’t get 5 stars was the bit of cluster to get into Auschwitz. We had to join a larger tour group when reaching Auschwitz (not private) and that second party organizer was very disorganized, delayed our entry, and then we got stuck in the middle of multiple other tour groups which caused a lot of people traffic jams at Auschwitz 1 camp.

Chris our driver was great. He picked us up from the hotel on time and drove us safely to Krakow, stopping once for a comfort break. Chris gave us a map and suggested a route to walk around the town. At Auschwitz he escorted us to the front of the queue prior to the tour starting. He was waiting in his car after the tour and again drove us safely back to the hotel.
