We were a group of 6 adults and we felt it was important to see this historic site while visiting Krakow. Our driver, Micheal, was excellent, he answered all our questions and transported us straight to and from our hotel and between the two camps. The private transfer took the hassle out of getting there. Viator provided us with our tickets and he showed us where to queue and handed us over to our guide at the front gate who was very good. We were given headsets so our tour group could hear her talk as we followed her around the site. She was happy to answer any questions we had. I would definitely recommend this trip to gain a better insight into the tragic events that occurred here.

Great tour
Edwin_W, Nov 2023
I booked a private car simply because our time in Krakow was limited and I wanted to make the most of the trip. The journey from Krakow is about 1hr 20 mins each way and with a private car there is no waiting on group pickups etc. The vehicle was spotless our driver was extremely personable with excellent English. He kept us fully informed of how the day would go as well as where we were to meet him to transfer between the two camps. Our tour guide was also excellent with perfect English, the same guide also took us around both camps. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting this wonderful city.
Harrowing experience but a must do
Victoria_M, Oct 2023
Great service from the driver, punctual , polite, nice clean car, would happily book to go on other trips again.
Great private transportation
Pam_O, Oct 2023
Great commutation between our private driver. It was so nice not to have to worry about meeting a group, getting on a crowded bus and to have our own private driver. Micheal was on time, showed us where to go, had our tickets ready for us. And dropped us off at our place. The only thing that would have been nice is to had some additional information about Auschwitz prior to getting there.
Visit Auschwitz-Birkenau from Krakow
Andries_M, Sep 2023
It is horrific to see and hear (again) what happened in the concentration camps. The guide in Auschwitz - Birkenau was excellent - very factual and well-informed. She spoke clearly and waited for people walking slower. Our driver Bartek was great: commucation and information was very clear, fast responses, safe driver in a very comfortable car and a very nice person. We enjoyed his company and conversations on the way to and from Auschwitz. We can strongly recommend booking a trip with this company.
Auswitz private taxi and group tour
Jo_r, Jul 2023
Excellent promt taxi service with very good communication. Was able to order a packed lunch for 50z in advance to save queuing and it was good quality Auswitz tour was an incredible experience, guide was good, very organised, a definite must do when visiting krakow
A very moving experience
VIRGINIA_R, Jul 2023
Because this activity is so tightly regulated, it is easy to miss something that could ruin your trip. Booking through this group made the travel and experience seamless and stress-free. The driver was great, very accomodating, and the arranged tour was excellent and we always knew where to go and what we needed to do. Great way to focus on this place and not worry about the details.
Hotel Pick up and Tour to Auchswitz
Peter_G, Jun 2023
Driver was extremely helpful , he had all our tickets to hand and took us to the entry point for Auchswitz. He was outside waiting for us at the completion of the tour then took us to Birkenau. The minibus pick up from our hotel went smoothly having been notified of our pick up time in adavance. Minibus very comfortable for the 5 of us.
Great driver who makes the day run smoothly
Stefanie_K, May 2023
Excellent communication made getting to Auschwitz and onto the tour very easy. It was nice to have such a friendly driver who knew exactly the schedule of the tour to get us there and keep us on track.
Transport to Auschwitz
Mike_w, May 2023
Transport to Auschwitz was excellent. Driver Wictor was on time with a clean car. Wictor was very pleasant, friendly and made sure we knew where to go and where to meet him after the tour. We would highly recommend Wictor for any other visitor using this service
Thought provoking
Tracey_G, Apr 2023
Very thought provoking, great organisation a sad place filled with history. Transfers were excellent so would recommend this trip
Comfortable and safe drive
Tatjana_F, Apr 2023
It was worth getting a private transfer from Krakow centre to Auschwitz and then to Birkenau. The car was so comfortable and clean, and the driver was very polite. It is quite a long journey and after having had such an emotionally exhausting experience, it was nice to get driven back home safely and comfortably. I also had great communication from the company, it was smooth from start to finish.
Great experience.
Patrik_T, Mar 2023
Very smooth experience. All the details were clear. The driver was very friendly and the car was beautiful. The tour of Auschwitz was very interesting and highly recommend.
Very professional
Michele_W, Mar 2023
An excellent service. Our driver, Victor was very friendly and professional. The day was really well organised and worth the cost. Thanks also to Victor who provided is with some restaurant recommendations.
Perfectly arranged tour
Reinaldo_B, Nov 2022
This was a perfectly arranged tour. Private driver and once you get to the camps, a group guide. If you want to hire a private tour guide at the camp, that’ll cost you 400-500€ plus the private driver, so I’d say this package for a private driver and a group guide was a perfect balance. Mario our driver was amazing. Would recommend it!
Excellent service for a fair price
Jan_Z, Sep 2022
Right after ordering the trip, we were contacted by the Polturist representative, who reminded us about the restrictions, informed us about how long the trip will take, what can we take with us, that we had to have our IDs, the exact time of pickup, … We were also offered a decent lunch package. The driver was on time and had a modern, clean, and spacious VW Transporter. His English was excellent and so were his social skills. The drive was safe and pretty quick. Overall a great service for a reasonable price. Everything was included in the price except the lunch package (40PLN per person), which we knew. Everyone should see places like Auschwitz-Birkenau, Mauthausen, Buchenwald, Terezin, and Treblinka, … It is tough to see all the holocaust evidence of holocaust and the torture of the prisoners. We cannot change the past, we can only learn from it and not repeat our own mistakes.
Excellent tour company
Nicola_C, Jun 2022
Good tour to go on, certainly an eye opener! Our driver was prompt, curtious, he spoke very good english and he was very helpful. The whole day was very well organised and great value for money. The packed lunch we purchased from them was good value for money too. Would highly recommend this your company.
Very good, worth a visit.

A very emotional but worthwhile trip
Eve S, Apr 2019
For our first trip to Poland, our group of two couples decided visiting Auschwitz was an absolute must and we were not disappointed. Despite the very eerie atmosphere at both Auschwitz and Birkenau camps, the knowledge and information our guide shared was beyond interesting and gave an authentic understanding of the harrowing activities that happened here. There was more of a museum feel at the first and smaller camp where we were able to view a lot of remaining artefacts and gain a deeper understanding of what happened when the individuals arrived. Birkenau was much much larger and the guide took place outside of the remaining buildings. I would highly recommend to anyone who is visiting Krakow or nearby areas as a highly educational and worthwhile tour. The private transfer was also worth whatever the nominal difference was in cost.
