Trip Report Poland Tour Photos

Jump to last reply

In September, we spent 3 weeks in Europe, one of which was on a tour of Poland called "Magical Poland." The tour itself was 6 days and was conducted by a local travel company, Mazurkas Travel, which I booked through Blue Danube Holidays.

We haven't taken an organized tour in a very long time, but really enjoyed this one. It wasn't too long, we had an excellent travel guide and our travel companions were great. It was a fast pace but one we were comfortable with. We felt the tour gave us good value for money paid.

We arrived in Warsaw a day before our tour began and a driver picked us up at the airport and took us to the Polonia Palace Hotel for the night. Our tour hotel was the Novotel Centrum around the corner but it wasn't available for this first night. The Polonia Palace was a beautiful, 4* property, close to transportation, shops and restaurants. We were upgraded to a larger room when we arrived. Breakfast was sumptuous and delicious. I wouldn't hesitate to stay there gain.

All of the hotels on our tour were large business type hotels, which I expected and knew about ahead of time. But considering how little time we actually spent in our hotel room, it wasn't an issue for us. All of the meals that were included in the tour were very good with a couple of them being outstanding.

The rest of our trip was spent mostly in Austria with a few days in Germany. When those photos are available, I'll post a link with a mini trip report.

Anyway, for those of you who might be interested, here is the link to the photos my DH took on our tour. We visited Warsaw, Czestochowa, Auschwitz-Birkenau, Zakopane and Krakow with a lunch stop in Lowicz on the way back to Warsaw. We also went on a rafting trip on the Dunajec River in the Pieniny National Park.

If you have any questions, I'll be happy to try to answer them.
