Magdalena at Real Poland planned a custom 2 week tour for myself & 5 family members. The guides, drivers, hotels and tours were all excellent! We could not have asked for a better tour for our family. It was flawless! Even met with a priest at whose church their great grandparents were married years ago. Poland is a gorgeous country with a remarkable history! It was an honor to be able to visit this wonderful country with such a strong culture, great food, and friendly people. So happy to have this opportunity! Had to postpone 3 times but we made it!!! Thank you to Magdalena & her staff!!

We took the Polish Delight tour from Real Poland in late August 2021. It was an outstanding experience! From our initial contact early in 2021 to the last day of our stay, Magdalena and her team communicated clearly and honestly with us. They responded promptly via email. The format for paying was simple and the charges were accurate. The sixteen day tour was billed as a way to “understand Polish history, tradition, lifestyle and culture”, and it was! The hotels were all high quality. They were centrally located, with plenty of shops, restaurants, and sightseeing opportunities within walking distance. For the adventurous folks, public transportation stops were close by as well. All of the hotels had buffet-style breakfasts every morning. While some were much more elaborate than others, we always had a variety of food and drink. I was quite partial to the apple juice. Real Poland also helped arrange accommodations for before and after our tour dates. That was very helpful! The hotels all had adequate Covid-19 protocols in place. We felt comfortable with the cleanliness and procedures. Real Poland made good choices in the hotels. The itinerary was well-planned. We had a couple of early morning starts and a couple of late afternoon arrivals, but we did not have any long period of just driving. Our travel days had interesting stops, with plenty of time to eat, shop, or explore. In several cities, we stayed more than one night. This allowed us plenty of free time to explore or relax. The tour lived up to its name of Polish Delight. We saw a wide variety of the country, from Warsaw to Gdańsk to Kraków. There were also complete surprises, cities such as Wrocław and Zakopane. The city guides all spoke English very well. They were knowledgeable, friendly, and willing to help when we wanted a recommendation on sights to see or places to eat. They all were very good ambassadors for their cities and their country. All of these factors, the professionalism of the Real Poland staff, the quality of the hotels, the manageable itinerary, and the expertise of the city guides made this a great tour. What took this tour over the top to outstanding was our dedicated tour guide, Elwira. Elwira introduced us to Poland and the Polish people. On our travel days, she would tell us the history of Poland. She started with tales of the earliest days of Poland, and took us through the partitions, the World Wars, and communism to the Poland of today. She is a remarkable woman who is both smart and funny! Elwira went above and beyond to assist when needed. On the days we started early, she arranged with the hotels to open breakfast early so that we would not have to eat in a rush. She never got tired of our questions. Elwira tried to get the tour group to learn a bit of Polish. It was fun! She delighted in showing us her country. It made me believe that Elwira was the “Delight” our tour was named after! Two images come to mind when I think of Elwira. The first was in Zakopane as she recalled a visit by Pope John Paul II. In a speech he told the Polish people “sursum corda”, that is “lift your heart”. Elwira was overcome with emotion as she described how this message resonated in Poland, especially in light of their struggles with Communism. The second time was near the end of our tour. We were visiting the monastery that holds the image of Our Lady of Częstochowa. Elwira noticed how deeply moved I was by this sanctuary. She was very pleased that I had experienced the peace and holiness of this site. We chose Poland because we recently confirmed that my mother is 100% Polish. Her parents were first generation Polish Americans. Since we did not know much about her family, we used the genealogical research service offered by Real Poland. The results helped narrow down the areas where my family comes from. Unfortunately, we could not confirm any living relatives. I would love to return and explore the little villages my ancestors lived in. I very much appreciate Natalia and her efforts to help us find out about our family. I felt as though she truly cared about my family. A few technical details to be aware of if you are considering this tour. There is a lot of walking, when the tour says prepare to walk, believe it. The walking is not strenuous. Most of the areas visited are fairly flat and level, but the cobblestones are uneven and slippery when wet. You should also be prepared for rain. The tours tend to encroach on the noontime lunch hour. For my personal health reasons, I eat smaller meals throughout the day. The first couple of days we ended up eating lunch fairly late. My solution was to take along some quick portable snacks. There are small grocers conveniently located nearly on every block. If you are there in late summer, I highly recommend the fresh plums. Bottled water is available, but if you’re like me, I prefer non-carbonated water. It was hard to tell the difference. Elwira, in her attempt to teach me some Polish words, showed me that “niegazowana” meant not carbonated. To conclude, if you want a unique experience, go to Poland. You will experience a modern European country that is full of history. I can highly recommend a Real Poland tour. They are truly the experts.

Our trip was entitled Polish Delight, and it took place during the month of September, 2021. We want to complement RealPoland for putting together a sweeping introduction to Poland. The itinerary covered history, architecture, food, music and much more. A really fun event was the pierogi-making workshop, and the music performances were a great addition. Magdalena made the practical aspects of signing up for the trip and meeting the COVID 19 requirements very easy, by quickly responding to e-mails and providing detailed information. But more than itinerary and trip planning, we were blessed with our excellent guide, Kasia. She was organized, attentive to details, enthusiastic, personable, and in particular a tremendous source of information and personal stories, which she communicated very effectively. Overall, a great trip, which we recommend to anyone, who wants to learn about the tumultuous past and present delights of Poland.

I would highly recommend this tour. It was the right mix of guided tours, historical sites, cultural experiences, great food, and free time. In spite of the fact we saw so many amazing sites all across Poland it left me wanting more. Our guide Kasia was excellent. Not only giving us much history and context, but always being one step ahead, confirming reservations, local guides, hotels, etc. She was a wealth of information, good humor and endless patience as we traveled this beautiful country. The organizers (Magdalena) and the local guides, as well as our driver were all excellent. I’m already planning a return trip with my family! Special thanks to my friends Mike & Kim for inviting me along.

From the beginning we had a positive feeling about this tour group. Magdalena, our contact was excellent with communication. Due to Covid we had to reschedule two times and she kept us informed of all changes. The tour was very organized and well thought out. Our tour guide Kaisa was wonderful. Very knowledgeable and a delight. She took good care of the group and was always upbeat and fun to be with. All excursions were informative and the guides were well versed in the history and explanation of each attraction. We have traveled Europe many times but never a tour but this by far was a wonderful experience and you will love it.
