Settle into your seat in a comfortable shuttle for the ride out to the site and watch a 55-minute documentary screened to give you the background and history of the camp on your way. Once you arrive at Auschwitz-Birkenau, the largest of the Nazi death camps, head out on a tour through the exhibitions in the prison blocks, the gas chambers, and the crematorium.

Step inside the Martydrom Museum to see sculptures and artwork created by former prisoners, examine exhibits chronicling the atrocities of the Holocaust along the way, and feel free to ask questions of your guide before you return to your shuttle and ride back to Krakow.

Had a very good and interesting trip, its so sad to see how people got treated, the tour location was easy to find and our tour guide was very knowledgeable. Make sure you bring food with you as we didnt stop for food at all. The only real issude of the day was that the vice president of America was coming to vist and the staff where so unprepared and the organisation was terrible, they made us wair for an hour in the freezing cold to get into the museum and then told us thay we wlll hava to come back later, wasting an hour of our day, so make sure that you book a day that no one is coming to visit! However this has nothing to do with the tour operator, jusy a word of warning.

Well worth the trip, this is a must see if your visiting Krakow, Cracow tours booked through Expedia was an excellent choice, no hassles at all, and a professional tour from start to finish, with a very knowledgable tour guide.

Very interesting and well worth doing but I did feel it was a bit rushed as we had to keep up behind the group in front and move forward for the group coming behind us
