Itinerary:

Magical Poland. The most famous and interesting places in our country. An absolute must if you want a thorough flexible introduction to Poland, its history, culture and the unparalleled spirit.

Day 1  : Arrival to Warsaw

Welcome meeting at the airport or the train station with our driver who will take you to the selected centrally located hotel in Warsaw. Rest of the day free for leisure. Recommended activities: viewing terrace on the 31st Floor of the Palace of Culture and Science, museums: Warsaw Uprising, Fryderyk Chopin or the Museum of the History of Polish Jews.

Day 2  : WARSAW TOUR

After breakfast, enjoy a three-hour introductory tour of Warsaw. It will include limousine transfers and the very best of the city: the charming Old Town painstakingly rebuilt from scratch after WW II, the area of the former Jewish Ghetto, the busy downtown, the elegant Royal Route and Łazienki Royal Gardens.
Afternoon: free time.
The evening - To conclude the day we shall invite you for the Chopin piano concert organized in the side wing of the Royal Castle.

Day 3  : Warsaw - Krakow: royal capital

We’ll arrange transfer to the railway station, where you will board the express train to Kraków. The journey shouldn’t take more than 2,5 hours. In Kraków our local driver will welcome you at the arrival platform and transfer you to the hotel.
Meet one of the best local guide’s to explore the historic city, in particular the largest medieval square in Europe with the 16th-century Cloth Hall in its centre and the world’s largest Gothic altar in the splendid St. Mary’s Basilica. Also take some time to walk the cobblestone streets of the Old Town up the ceremonial route to Wawel Hill and the castle of the Polish monarchs. This comprehensive tour will take 4 hours.
Evening: free time.

Day 4  : Little Poland highlights (Auschwitz-Birkenau & Wieliczka)

A full day private tour with your personal, English speaking driver who will take care of all the arrangements.

We will explore Auschwitz which has unfortunately become a grim symbol of our civilization. Our tour will include the Holocaust Museum in Auschwitz I, as well as the less frequently visited Auschwitz II – Birkenau, the extermination camp itself.
After visiting Auschwitz, you will travel to the Wieliczka Salt Mines, a fascinating monument of engineering which dates back to the 13th century. The subterranean universe comprises over 300 km of galleries hewn into the rock and salt deposits.

Day 5  : Polish mountains or Czestochowa

Decide by yourself how you would like to spend this day. You can choose between one of two equally interesting, but different complimentary tour options. Both are private, so you’ll travel with in comfort by car with a professional and personal English -speaking driver/guide
1st Option: ZAKOPANE
Zakopane is the main Polish mountain resort at the foot of the majestic Tatra mountain range (over 2,000 metres above sea level). A car tour around Zakopane, admiring the exquisite and very characteristic local wooden architecture and making a funicular railway trip up to one of the most beautiful places in the Tatras: Mt. Gubalówka, facing the astonishing beauty of Zakopane. During the day, you will also have enough time to walk down Krupówki Street for souvenir-hunting.
2nd Option: CZESTOCHOWA
We set out on a journey to the south of Poland and visit Częstochowa, its spiritual heart. The monastery is famous for the miraculous painting of the Black Madonna and you will be taken on a guided tour of the grounds by a Pauline monk.

Day 6  : The end or continuation

Depending on your flight/ train schedule, our driver will take you either to the airport in Kraków or to the railway station. If you plan to continue to Warsaw or to other destinations in Poland or Central Europe to extend your tour, we will be glad to assist with further arrangements.
