I’m in my 70s and travelling solo from Warsaw to Krakow next month where I shall spend four full days. I have refined my list of must-see things down to:
Auschwitz (of course!)
Wieliczka Salt Mine*
A City Tour by ‘golf cart’!, and
Zakopane (an early-start, single-day trip!)
*First of all, by the way, I have made a ‘diary’ note to visit Auschwitz on the first day, followed by the Salt Mine trip that evening, based on several comments here that the combination is quite practicable. Agree? If so, I shall then have a spare, full day at the weekend.
Whilst I’m happy to be advised of ‘better’ choices, my main reason to post is to seek the best means of booking these individual tours and with whom.
I’m staying at what I’m sure is a most dependable hotel, but suspicions linger that some staff anywhere may be tipped (literally) to recommend certain services, so I’d like your impartial suggestions instead please of local, small-group tour-operators.
My own research has thrown up the following, all of which seem good choices and I am leaning towards “escape2poland” with whom I have already booked the train down to Krakow.
“www.escape2poland” “www.krakow.pl” “www.seekrakow” “cracow.travel”
My priorities, like yours no doubt, are reliability, reasonable English by the guide/s and ditto with price though I don’t want cheap for the sake of it! Comfortable travel would be nice too!
Many thanks in advance.
