Very emotional experience, worth the trip, a must visit site if you are in the region. Do not expect to be unmoved by the visit. Very knowledgeable guide who told the story with feeling.
Make your way to Old Town Krakow on the morning of your tour, and meet your guide and group. Climb into an air-conditioned minivan for the ride over to Auschwitz. Provided transportation means you can easily access this UNESCO World Heritage Site without renting a car or puzzling out public transportation.
Once you arrive, proceed directly inside and skip the often-long entry lines, since you have prebooked a tour. You'll be equipped with a headset to hear your museum guide clearly as you explore the main camp, Auschwitz I, and Birkenau, where many lives were taken. In Auschwitz II-Birkenau, listen to informative commentary while stopping at the site's most significant buildings, such as the crematoria, the gas chamber, the unloading ramp, and the barracks.
Upon the completion of this Auschwitz-Birkenau tour, return to Krakow for drop-off back in Old Town.
