The company contacted us at every moment to let us know at what time and exact place of pick up (in front of the hotel we were staying). The driver was always on time and was very nice and approachable. He offered many places to eat and try. Also to buy souvenirs. The visit was incredibly, can’t wait to go again

This trip follows the life of Pope John Paul II, from his humble beginnings in Wadowice to his devotion to the Blessed Mother and also to people of the world. A great example of someone who lived a difficult life and didn’t let that stop him. A beautiful trip. Our guide was very patient with us, allowing us time to wander and even took us to a bakery to try John Paul’s favorite - cream cake, which really is very good. At Częstochowa, we had a personal tour with a monk that lived at the monastery, an interesting man who took time to sit down with us and explain some of the history of Poland and the monastery. A very unique trip.

This was a wonderful trip. It was a long way from Krakow but worth the distance and experience. Marek, our driver, was excellent. His English was very good and his knowledge on Poland and in particular Czetzochowa and Wadowice was great. He was very good company and we thank him for making this a day to remember.
