What a fun day we had on this tour! Marcin, our guide, was incredibly knowledgeable and accommodating to our needs. I brought my 7 year old on this tour, and while this is definitely NOT a kids tour, the things we saw held her attention and made an impression. Many of the places were outdoors, so she had the freedom to explore and run around a bit. Our favorite part of the day was the Romantic Park in Arkadia. Highly recommended!

It was a pleasant day with the weather at its best. Martin, my guide, gave lots of interesting information, never rushed me, yet showed me everything with the result that we both enjoyed being outdoors. The typical Polish restaurant we visited, did not disappoint. Having lunch outdoors under trees was a bonus due to the sun shining.

It was a glorious autumn day. The open air museum provided a most interesting glimpse peasant life. The romantic parks and gardens were poetic and the palace gave an impression of social structure in the time. Highly recommended. Delightful guide whose broad knowledge kept the conversation lively.

Very relaxed and informative. Martin was a wealth of information on Polish history, culture and politics. It was wonderful to see the countryside covered in snow and small villages. A glimpse of polish country life.

We had an excellent trip with Piotre. He was very good in explaining everything and answering our questions
