Auschwitz Tour from Krakow

Auschwitz Tour from Krakow

TripAdvisor

Nothing can prepare you for the influx of emotions that will run through your heart as you explore the camps of Auschwitz and Birkenau - the only death camp on the UNESCO World Heritage List where pure evil resided for 5 long years. Each exhibition in the museum adds another sting in your heart and makes you realise what atrocities humans are capable of in their thirst for power.

To help you understand what really happened in the most recognizable place of the Holocaust in the early 1940s, we created the tour that will allow you to see the barracks, crematoria, and gas chambers which Nazis used for the mass extermination of women, men, children, and elderly who weren’t able to do hard labour after an exhausting journey in cattle wagons. We won’t miss the exhibitions with personal belongings, objects of everyday use, and pictures of individual prisoners. Since the war ended and the museum was opened for the public, millions of people have come here to pay tribute and shed tears over the innocents who perished in Auschwitz and Birkenau. All of us, without exception, should brace up and pay a visit to this sobering place for the sake of future generations to make sure no one forgets what hatred and totalitarian regime result in.

Hello there just a quick line to thankyou for the wonderful service we received from your company on our recent visit to Krakow. I booked airport transfers and the trips to Aushwitz and the salt mines, all of which were perfect, All the drivers were prompt and very polite and the lady who did our guided tour around Aushwitz, Birkenau was very good and explained everything to our group. I will certainly be recommending your company to any friends who are visiting Poland and on our next visit I will also not hesitate to use you. Many thanks for everything , Tom

My boyfriend and I used Esacpe2Poland for our entire stay in Krakow. But more specifically for the Auschwitz and Birkenau Tour. After I made the booking i received all the confirmation by email, its made very clear on all the emails that the tickets will be sent 3 days before we received ours in good time and all the details were clearly given. We were met at our hotel promptly as you are given a specific time slot. The drive to Auschwitz is quite long so be prepared to be travelling for well over an hour be sure to take a bottle of water with you and wear comfortable shoes as there will be a lot of walking. Once we arrived we were then met by the tour guide Patrica who gave us headsets to wear for the duration of the tour she was very professional and had a vast knowledge of the camps. this is something i have always wanted to experience and I am glad we used Escape2Poland as booking was easy and everything was taken care of. The tour is powerful to say the least given the subject matter but well worth doing. You get taken to both camps and get to see pretty much everything I cannot recommend this enough. I am not sure I would visit Krakow again as I think it is a one trip sort of place but a place well worth visiting none the less.

My father and brother have just come back from a 3 day trip to Poland visiting Auschwitz They have had nothing but praise for the excellent service that your organization provided from the moment they were picked up from the Airport by your driver, to the helpfulness of the Hotel staff and the tour of Auschwitz where they were very impressed by the driver that escorted them there and back and also by the tour guide. This was a Christmas present from me to them and it helps make it even more special when you have the ease of mind that it is run by such a professional outfit such as yours. I will tell people what a good service you provide if they want to travel to Poland .
