A rich cultural heritage, fascinating history, and beautiful landscapes make Poland an interesting place to discover. On this Poland tour, you’ll spend two nights in Warsaw and Gdansk, three nights in Kraków, and one night in Poznan. Along the way, learn about Poland’s history and visit some of its historic cities with their charming old towns, and some UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

Enjoy sightseeing with a Local Guide—an expert in the city’s history, sights, culture, and secrets—in Warsaw, Gdansk, Torun, Poznan, and Kraków. Torun is the birthplace of Renaissance astronomer Copernicus and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. In the Middle Ages, it was a prominent trade centre as a member of the Hanseatic League. Dating back to the 7th century, Kraków is known as Poland’s most beautiful city and cultural capital. Here, your sightseeing features the Market Square, one of Europe’s loveliest squares, along with Wawel Hill. Gdansk is a beautiful port city on the Baltic Sea which played an important role in recent history by facilitating the events that brought to the fall of the Berlin wall.

On this Poland tour, you’ll visit Jasna Góra, the monastery near Czestochowa, an important pilgrimage spot. Its Black Madonna, a painting of the Virgin Mary, is a symbol of the country and venerated as the "Queen of Poland." You'll also visit what is left of the Auschwitz concentration camp, a chilling reminder of the Holocaust. Enjoy a day trip to Zakopane, a mountain resort in the Tatras, a favourite holiday spot for locals and visitors.

You’ll have a chance to do a little hiking or to relax taking in the spectacular views. You’ll arrive home from this value-minded tour through Poland with a new appreciation of Poland’s history, culture, nature and wonderful cities— an enriching holiday!

Overall good touring holiday but very poor choice of food for vegetarians. Hotels average as I wouldn’t class them 4*. Warsaw Hotel was fine. Would prefer hotels to be more central rather than out of town. Could have done with 1 extra day in Kraków rather than 2 days back in Warsaw. Optional tours bit expensive.

Good but should be longer as insufficient free time to explore. Start in Warsaw plus one day. An extra day in Krakow at the end of tour. Depart from Krakow direct home or via Warsaw as appropriate. Optional tours: do not have two food related optional events - one is enough. Absolutely do not have the farewell dinner as an optional event at extra cost. It splits the group and sends totally the wrong message. Very bad planning and optics.

Mr Christopher Birt

Novotel hotels had issues, especially poor location in Krakow and only paper cups in the bedrooms. Inclusive evening meals did not really cater for vegetarians. The tour involved a lot of travelling, with too little time in Poland and Krakow. Disappointed that one of the promised advertisedo excursions was not available.
