This trip gives one significant guided knowledge about Warsaw and Krakow while providing enough free time to explore the sites that are not formally covered. On my trip, the lectures were among the best I have had with Road Scholar. Both hotels were first-rate, as were the restaurants recommended by RS. A highly worthwhile experience!


Our trip to Warsaw and Krakow was a delight in every way! Need to return some day!


Road Scholar does an excellent job in organizing travel without being too "group-y". The other participants were intelligent, curious, and reflective. Our group was large enough (17) to have diversity, and small enough to know everyone. The size allows for personal connection with the leaders and speakers. Thank you. It was a wonderful experience.


Folks come to Poland experiance a Road scholar moment, Great


This trip offered just what I wanted: to see Poland's two most important cities, to have hotels for lodging, to have highly competent guides, and to allow me the freedom to see what I was most interested in during the rest of the day and the evening. Our guides and speakers were excellent, the train between Warsaw and Krakow was efficient, and the hotels were very good to excellent.


This program is perfect for the independent traveler: breakfast with group, morning chat with tour guide, 1 hr lecture, then on your own for the rest of the day. Both tour guides impressed me with their expertise and 1st hand knowledge of the cities they live in. They demonstrated patience with answering hundreds of questions for everyone on the tour, and made us feel like family by providing us with bus tickets and restaurant recommendations. The morning lectures were illuminating, given by academics from the universities, providing us with in-depth information on the history, art, culture and present-day situations in Poland. The expert-led tours of both Warsaw and Krakow were most comprehensive, enabling us to feel more comfortable in exploring the cities on our own during free time. I highly recommend arriving in Warsaw a few days before the tour starts, and staying a few days after the tour ends in Krakow.
