You MUST hear Chopin played by a great pianist if you visit Warsaw. And we did. My brother visited me for the holidays and we saw a lot of historical sites and museums and tried as many Polish dishes as possible. But the highlight of the trip was hearing Chopin being played by a pianist like Katarzyna Glensk. She played beautifully (so soothing and yet passionate) and she met with audience members afterward. Very gracious and very talented.

Incredible performance in an elegant, intimate environment. The host was gracious and accommodating. A welcome respite from the cold, hustle bustle of the Christmas Markets.

A great intimate concert in the historic city center. Easy to get to and the staff was super firnedly. The music was fantastic and sounded great.

Wonderful experience. The pianist was superb and so talented. The atmosphere was magnificent. Would really recommend this.

The tour and especially the guide exceeded our expectations.
