To make the most out of your visit to Krakow, take advantage of the combined tour to Auschwitz-Birkenau and Oskar Schindler Factory. The tour takes a full day and is a great way to see two of the absolute must-sees of the region, as well as outstanding monuments of Polish and Jewish history. In Auschwitz-Birkenau, you will have a chance to pay tribute to all who lost their lives during the Holocaust and in Oskar Schindler Factory you will discover the story of a man who devoted himself to saving lives of Jewish people.
Your tour begins with a pick-up from your hotel in Krakow between 8.30am and 9.30am (please note that the pick-up service can not be offered for hotels situated outside of Krakow). Then, traveling by a shared, comfortable Mercedes Benz vehicle with an English speaking driver, you'll set out off the approximately 1 hour, 10-minute journey to Auschwitz-Birkenau.
On arrival, you will take part in a thrilling tour of the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camps, the largest and most notorious of the Nazi regime, and discover the harrowing history of Poland's Nazi occupation during WWII. During the 3.5-hour tour, you can visit the exhibitions, memorials, and prison buildings, and pay your respects to the many who lost their lives.
After being picked up by your driver, you can have a break for lunch (at your own expense) on the way to the second stop of the day; Schindler’s Factory, where you'll take part in a guided tour of the historic factory. During the tour, learn the story of the Enamel Factory owned by Oskar Schindler during World War II and the man whose devotion saved over a thousand lives, a story that was later immortalized in the award-winning movie 'Schindler's List'.
On return to Krakow, you'll be dropped back at your hotel around 6.00pm.
