An essential trip for Catholics, very well organized.

We have enjoyed visits to Wadowice and Czestochowa during the last day of our trip to Krakow, on several occasions we have been excited about what we were seeing. The trip organization has been perfect, they even left us at the airport 2 hours before our flight when we returned from the trip. Highly recommended!

Footsteps of a great person!

This trip follows the life of Pope John Paul II, from his humble beginnings in Wadowice to his devotion to the Blessed Mother and also to people of the world. A great example of someone who lived a difficult life and didn’t let that stop him. A beautiful trip. Our guide was very patient with us, allowing us time to wander and even took us to a bakery to try John Paul’s favorite - cream cake, which really is very good. At Częstochowa, we had a personal tour with a monk that lived at the monastery, an interesting man who took time to sit down with us and explain some of the history of Poland and the monastery. A very unique trip.

The driver speaks English, but the visits in Wadowice and Czestochowa are in Spanish. Philip, the driver has worked hard to explain some things along the way, very nice and very friendly. Casia, the wonderful czestochowa guide. We return very happy of the excursion and the good treatment received. We hope to return soon.
