We were delighted that Grzegorz Bartecki was able to put together an exceptional two day tour to find and visit my husband's grandfathers birthplace in Lutotow. The two day tour included informative visits to Lodz and Krakow as well as finding and exploring our native homeland. It was so much better than we ever expected and something we could NEVER have done on our own. Our excellent driver and guide helped us find the old synagogue that still remained in the town, and we talked to local residents who pointed out original houses on the intact market square. I think everyone who has family from Poland, especially those of us with Jewish heritage would benefit from Grzegor's care.

Five of us spent 11 nights on a private tour, that we designed through Exciting Poland. I can just tell you that every step of the way was absolutely perfect. There was not one site, hotel or dinner that wasn't just wonderful. Our guide/ driver Wintek Jablonski was a gem. Once he got to know us better he tweaked our program here and there to do exactly what we wanted and also found places to eat that we all loved. He was so cheerful and he knew all local guides. Grzegorz Bartecki, the tour manager knows the business.
Never once did we feel even remotely unsafe in Poland in fact just the opposite. Everywhere we went out of Ukrainian flag alongside the Polish flag. Poland knows what it is to loose freedom.
This is a honest and reputable company. We thought our tour was a bargain with quality.
We LOVED and it's people!!!!

Pearls of Poland-2021
This trip was incredible! If you want to experience Poland- this is the tour for you.
The tour is well planned and organized. Witek was our guide and driver. He was extremely knowledgeable, always considerate and patient. Grzegorz arranged a side trip for my husband and myself to visit distant cousins in the birthplace of my grandfather. We enjoyed many fine meals and comfortable hotels. I highly recommend this tour. Poland will always hold a place in my heart.

Our group of 5 had a tour of Poland individualized for us, to experience our heritage, religion, history and culture. Everything was so well organized and friendly. We had an excellent bilingual driver/guide and tour guides in various locations. It was truly the trip of a lifetime, arranged in every detail with minimal effort on our parts. I highly recommend Exciting Poland!

Best. Vacation. Ever. My 76 year old dad and I just returned from this beautiful country. I can say, hands down, the trip far exceeded our expectations. Grzegorz, Witek and Robert planned everything perfectly. We saw so much yet didn't feel rushed. Was a good balance between tours and free time. I would recommend this tour to anyone interested in Poland. The history there is incredible and we are already talking of another trip with the rest of our family in 2020. Thank you for the trip of a lifetime. It was so special for me and my father! I'm now enjoying putting a scrapbook together of all the fabulous places we visited!!

We cannot rave enough on how wonderful the 'Pearls of Poland' tour organized by Exciting Poland, was! Traveling through the beautiful Polish countrysides and villages to see so many gems of Polish history was fantastic! The driver that Exciting Poland provided was not only safe and knowledgeable about the roads and highways but also offered wonderful commentary on contemporary life in Poland or on any little historic tidbits which we all found interesting. He was a fine companion along the way who found interesting restaurants and was very clear about every direction and meeting time/place. He was wonderful! The city tours were led by good guides too. In particular Ewa in Warsaw was fantastic, and our driver (Grzegorz) gave wonderful tours in Zakopane and Krakow, his hometown. Yola in Gdansk and Pawel in Poznan were also interesting and accommodating guides.

After months of research, we settled on Exciting Poland and its Pearls of Poland tour. Throughout the booking process and afterwards, Mr. Bartecki from the tour office, answered every question or concern I had by email within a day. From what I could see and compare, the tour price was fair and reasonable, especially for the excellent accommodations, fine restaurants, city tours, admission tickets to museums, etc. In the end we felt that it was a fantastic bargain!!! We have already discussed "when we go back" and "next time..." and will no doubt arrange our travels with Exciting Poland.

We are very, very satisfied customers and applaud Exciting Poland for its total arrangements for our September 2015 Pearls of Poland tour.

What an amazing adventure! Grzegorz, Witek and Robert did such an fabulous job arranging everything on our tour. From pick up and drop off at the Airports, to making sure we comfortable on the bus, to bypassing the lines for the various attractions we went to see, everything was perfectly arranged for us. It is a great way to get to see all of Poland. I highly recommend this tour for anyone interested in seeing Poland. It was perfect!

- Overall organization: The tour was well organized, with a balance of churches, castles, palaces, museums, and outdoor sites such as a national park or archeological sites. It was a good pace, but we were not rushed. We often walked 5-6 miles/day.
- Schedule/promptness: We never had to wait for our bus, guides, meals. Everything was on schedule. The schedule had appropriate breaks for bathrooms and snacks.
- Guides and driver: Our bus driver Robert drove very safely and comfortably; personally he was very courteous and always helpful, and amazing at navigating difficult parking spaces. Witek is a gem – so knowledgeable, patient, cheerful, good attention to detail and followup. We had complete trust and confidence that he was taking good care of us. For example, in Turon, when we heard about an evening light show at the Copernicus fountain, he walked with us to make sure we knew how to find it and how to get back to our hotel. Someone else might just point and say “over there, three blocks.”
- Hotels: seemed hard to distinguish between 3 and 4 stars; they were all spotlessly clean, very modern and luxurious, well equipped, good wi-fi, and fantastic breakfasts. All located within walking distance of the old town so when we had time on our own we were not stuck in a place where we couldn’t walk to anything. We had a triple room, and they were always adequate.
- Food: Wonderful. The breakfasts are like nothing I have ever seen (buffets with 60+ items) and the dinners were all good. My daughter is allergic is poultry and nuts and they made appropriate substitutions for her.
- Flexibility in accommodating requests: in Gdansk, we noticed a galleon boat ride around the port and our guide helped us with the tickets and adjusted the dinner start time so that we could all go on it.

Let me first thank you and the ExcitingPoland organization for all the planning and attention to detail to make our second visit under your coordination and care “perfect!” Everyone from your organization that we encountered was extremely friendly and professional and all our excursions went off without issue.
I must share a special note about Mateusz – what a very intelligent, passionate and fine young man. His time with us went beyond a guide and became a true friendship. His time and care with my parents became one of their highlights.

Now that we have discovered our family in Poland, your country will continue to be a periodic destination for us and we will continue to tap the resources of ExcitingPoland again and again.

Best Regards,

This was the best tour we’ve taken, our first with ExcitingPoland. We chose Pearls because it was highly reviewed on TripAdvisor and it didn’t disappoint. It was well planned and organized. Witek our guide/ driver was knowledgeable, prompt, friendly and had a sense of humor. The local, licensed guides were,too. Of the 16 provinces in Poland we saw 8. Tours, sights and activities were varied - walking, rafting, organ concert, cable car ride to mention a few. The hotels were all well located and the breakfast buffets were great! Dinners were also excellent. Communication with Grzegorz, the tour manager was excellent pre- tour and we received the most detailed itinerary before the tour. The bonus was there were only 7 of us on the tour and we all had a great experience and have fond memories of Poland.
