Our guide, Majciek, was extremely knowledgeable about the history and current environment of these places. He could also answer even our random questions. There was a short hike uphill, but the path was paved and very easy to walk. There were some stairwells involved in the Tower and no elevator, so you do need to be mobile and able to walk up and down stairs. We learned so much about Poland - the people, the history, the land. I loved every minute of the tour!

My friend and I had such a wonderful day and I will remember it always. Our tour guide Adam was an amazing person- very knowledgeable about. …well, just about everything! He was funny, considerate, down to earth and did I mention funny? I was sad to say goodbye. We visited Karpacz, Seidlecin, hotel staniszow (Amazing lunch). Mountains are gorgeous. Definitely check out this tour!!
