Portrait of Poland


tour: 6080 9 Day Tour from Warsaw to Warsaw
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 center 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. You’ll visit the monastery of Jasna Góra in 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. Take a breath of fresh air on the included excursion 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 vacation!

When I am on tour, I enjoy sharing my experience and knowledge of culture, history, geography, art and gastronomy. I always enjoy the diversity of the people who decide to come and travel. It is impressive to see people from very different backgrounds, willing to learn about the new cities, countries and regions. And, of course, not only learning, but also enjoying each other's company, having fun together and forming new friendships which will often last for a lifetime. I am very glad that I chose to become a Tour Director.
