What people are saying about Warsaw

Everything was organized and planned to the point. Our tour operator picked us up from our hotel, drove us to the train station and made sure we hopped on the right train. Then, we met up with our driver in Krakow who took us to the the city centre since we had some time to get a glimpse of it. Then, we met up with another driver who drove us to Auschwitz. Afterwards, we returned to Krakow when we had the opportunity to view the city with its beautiful Christmas decorations. We hopped in our train and our tour guide waited for us in Warsaw to drive us back to the hotel. Overall, it is a very tiring one day trip, since you wake up very early and return at night, but worth every penny since its organization is to the point!

Mary was our guide and she was fantastic. It is a great choice as you combine some walking with the car ride to other areas a little bit further than the downtown. It was not only just listening to what she had to say, but having a conversation with her about the fascinating facts and historic context of Warsaw.

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.

Mateusz was an amazing driver. We enjoy the the trip.
