    Discover the history of Poland

    Poland is a beautiful country. When you are in the cities, you wouldn't think they only are free from the Russians since 1990. All cities are so clean, the buildings have been restored to their former glory. The motorways are excellent, what a difference with the UK.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    The museum of Solidarity, it is a must see.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    We had a fantastic guide Jurek (Jerry) Sajkowski, he was so passionate about his country, could tell us all about the history of his country and was the most helpful guide we had since we have been travelling with Exodus (since 1991).

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    We didn't book the Salt Mines in Krakow, but I would advise to book this excursion when you book the trip with Exodus, it is a more difficult when you try to do it in Krakow.

    A fascinating exploration of Poland

    I went on the Discover Poland tour as an Exodus staff member in July. It was my first trip with Exodus and I had a fantastic time.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Visiting Auschwitz-Birkenau was something I will never forget. It was a challenging and incredibly emotional experience, but is something I think everybody should do if they get the chance.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Jerry was superb. He made sure that everybody was happy and well informed, both as a group and individually. Nothing was too much trouble for him, he made sure the tour ran smoothly, his knowledge of – and passion for – his country was outstanding and his fine sense of humour went down really well with the group.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    There is a lot to see and do on this tour, so prepare for fairly early starts each morning and a few long days.

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    Don’t miss the Solidarity Centre in Gdansk. It gives an incredibly interesting account of a hugely important part of Poland’s recent history and the fabric of its society today.

    The trip covered many different places in Poland it is a beautiful country full of history, tradition and wonderful cities

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Visiting the 'final solution' and Auschwitz

    What did you think of your group leader?

    The group leader Jerry was both professional, very knowledgeable about the country but funny and intelligent. He looked after both group needs and individual ones nothing was too much trouble for him. I have been on over 20 trips for Exodus and Explore and he is the one that stands out as being the best.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Lots of travelling on the bus

    Discover Poland

    A wonderful trip around Poland with a great guide.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Everyday there were great experiences. We visited some beautiful cities. I especially loved Gdansk, Torun and Wroclaw. Really enjoyed our visit to Malbork Castle where one of the highlights was when our lovely guide, Blueberry, demonstrated acoustics by singing beautifully. And our visit to Auschwitz was very moving indeed. Again, we were fortunate to have a wonderful guide who took us round with great dignity and spoke with such passion.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Jerry was a excellent guide. Very experienced, with an amazing knowledge of so many aspects of his country. He was totally committed to ensuring we had a great time in Poland. The trip ran very efficiently due to his organisational skills. And he had a great sense of humour so we had lots of fun too!

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    The trip is very full on with a number of early starts but we saw a great deal of Poland. The hotels were of a very high standard. I would recommend going a day earlier and staying a day later so you can spend extra time in Warsaw and Krakow. There is so much to see.

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    I would highly recommend this trip. A very comprehensive tour of Poland.

    Poland tour

    This was a comprehensive tour of Poland, its cities, culture, history and people, with a very knowledgeable guide who showed a love of his country and wanted to share it with us. He was also very versed in the history of the country going back to it's origins and could answer all of our questions. Our guide was courteous at all times, always on time and spotted when members of the group needed any extra assistance. Despite the times that Gerry and his family have lived through, he gave us an impartial view when discussing the history with personal insights.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    The Solidarity museum at Gdansk and the impact of seeing the Ghetto in Warsaw, far away from crowds, and the relating photographs.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    See above. We thought he was great.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Please consider leaving your cameras and mobile phones in your pockets when visiting Auschwitz. If there was ever a place where they are not appropriate, this is it.

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    I think that a boat trip in Wroclaw would be a welcome addition and I think that the Solidarity Museum should be built into the trip. In our case, Gerry worked around the schedule at our request.

    Highlights of Poland

    Having visiting Krakow a few years ago, we chose this trip to explore more of Poland. The itinerary is busy with some long travel days, but all run efficiently. We visited museums, Old Towns, Palaces, a Salt Mine and Auschwitz, learned about Poland's history, sampled local cuisine and mingled among Polish tourists in the resort town of Zakopane while enjoying the views of the Tatra Mountains. We enjoyed our free time in Krakow to explore the Old Town. The location of the hotels in Gdansk, Wroclaw and Krakow is far from each city's Old Town(20-35 min walk). As this was a new itinerary for 2017, hopefully, the Exodus Team will reevaluate the hotel locations and choose hotels closer to each city's Old Town. Although dinners were not included, our guide recommended restaurants each night, reserved table for group and joined us for dinner. Some chose to eat elsewhere but we enjoyed each of these restaurants, usually just having a starter for dinner as lunches were big. We had a chance to try a lot of different foods even just eating starters or soups. We appreciated having Jerzy joined us for dinners. Often on tours, guide doesn't join group for dinner if it isn't an 'included' dinner. Overall an efficient tour around Poland.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    After 5 busy days of exploration, history and culture, wandering through the busy pedestrian streets and outdoor market of Zakopane was delightful. The Polish resort town in the mountains was buzzing as many locals were still enjoying beautiful weekend weather. A funicular took us up a mountain for views across the valley to the Tatra Mountains where we tried the Highlander's tea and enjoyed the company of our friends who traveled with us and Jerzy.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Jerzy was an excellent guide. He was well organized and kept us informed of activities and schedule each day. He shared his knowledge of Poland's history and culture throughout including personal stories. Each evening he had booked a table at a local restaurant for group(although dinners were not included) and joined us. We appreciated him joining for dinners as often guides don't if dinners aren't included in tour. He always recommended regional dishes to try at each restaurant. His extensive travel allowed him to relate well with guest from different countries(our group was from UK, USA and Australia).

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Arrive a day or two early to explore Warsaw and adjust to time zone so you can fully enjoy the group tour from the beginning as it is busy with long days.
