Excellent customer service!

The tour was very nice. Had a great time with our knowledgeable tour guide Anna. What took the experience to another level is the customer service that I had to contact because of my own mistake. I booked the tour twice (don’t ask me how or why) and didn’t notice it until the time of the tour. I called the polish rep and he told me to email headquarters since I booked everything online. Within just a couple of hours they deposited the extra charge back to my account. I just emailed them what happened, no questions asked whatsoever. Superb!

Great Tour with the Wonderful Ola As My Guide

I had a very wonderful tour with Ola ( Alekdandra ) who is most charming and very highly educated and an art and architecture historian, who is very involved in Poznan’s cultural affairs and its preservation. She showed me a great deal of the beauty of Poznan and it’s fascinating history. It was really like taking a college course If you are lucky enough to visit Poznan you must request Ola as your guide.
