This list could easily be much, much longer but we want to keep it short and sweet. In this article, you will find the top 10 reasons why you need to travel to Poland!
1. The people are incredibly kind.
I may be biased as I am Polish, but there something to be said about how amazing the people are in Poland. All of the guests that we have hosted in Poland always comment about how open-hearted, positive and helpful Polish people are. There is something unique and inspiring about the Polish family dynamic.
Poles are very happy to share their country and culture with visitors and there is an obvious bond between Polish and American people. Interacting with locals is an important part of our trips so that you can experience the real Poland. Younger generations of Poles are positive, well-educated, English-speaking and outgoing. You are going to love us!
2. Poland has a rich and diverse history.
We all know the history of Poland is complicated and wasn’t always easy, but despite all of the challenges, our country is growing strong and we are very proud of it. We want to introduce you to the history through experiencing and visiting some important places, listening to unbelievable stories and meeting diverse people. Poland was involved in some of the most important events in world history and we believe that we have an important role to play in the future. You won’t only find our history in museums but also by walking down streets, through the forests and in the eyes of everyone you meet.

3. The nature is stunning.
In my life I’ve been lucky enough to see some amazing places including Iceland, New Zealand, Norway, Nepal as well as some incredible National Parks in the United States, but there is a special place in my heart for Polish nature. Living in Alaska can make you a little bit jaded to beautiful landscapes, but I honestly believe that Poland is a phenomenal destination for outdoor enthusiasts. You will find pristine beaches, fantastic lakes, fairy-tale forests, wine-country rolling hills and alpine mountain peaks. Polish nature is incredibly diverse and worth exploring.

4. The food is SO GOOD.
You have probably heard about pierogi, but Poland has much (much, much, much…) more to offer. Poland is a foodies paradise. There are delicious bakeries, fresh fruits and vegetables, numerous soups, high-quality meats and mouth watering desserts. This might seem a little overwhelming and you might feel your belt buckle start to tighten, but not to worry.
On our private tours to Poland we combine indulging with adequate amounts of physical activity to ensure the calories won’t weigh you down. You will have a chance to taste famous Polish candy, observe highlanders making traditional cheese and have the opportunity to make your own gingerbread in Toruń. Let’s not forget to mention tasting polish vodka, wines, ciders and award winning craft beers.

5. The cities are historic and picturesque.
It doesn’t make sense to travel all the way to Poland and only see Warsaw. In addition to the interesting and beautiful capital city, there are some other amazing cities that you shouldn’t miss! On our private tours to Poland, you meet our helpful certified guides who will share the city with you like only a local can. We want to introduce you to places such as Gdańsk, Poznań, Kraków and Wrocław as well as lesser known places like Łódź, Toruń, Lublin, Wałbrzych, Karpacz, Zamość and many more. Each town has a unique and incredible story to tell.
6. The countryside is quaint and charming.
Aside from vibrant cities, farms and small villages should definitely not be missed. The agriculture in Poland is essential for the European and even the global market. Visiting these communities will help you have a look at how much work goes into creating quality produce. Poland is one of the largest producers of fruit in Europe, and is well known for raspberries and apples.
On our private tours to Poland you may have an opportunity to visit an apple orchard and taste fresh fruits and ciders. Many restaurants and hotels that we work with are located in the countryside. They provide a tranquil and relaxing environment that will allow you to indulge in the real farm to table experience.
7. Poland is a safe country to visit.
We understand the importance of safety when traveling and it is our priority on every organized tour to Poland. According to the Global Peace Index, Poland is ranked as the 29th safest country out of the 163 places in their survey (United States coming in at number 121). Follow basic safety practices to avoid problems and you will have a great vacation.

8. Poland is still an undiscovered country.
International tourism is growing rapidly. This can make travel expensive and making arrangements challenging. In places such as England, Iceland or France prices are extremely high and its difficult to find affordable high standard accommodation. Poland can also get busy, especially during the summer season, but there are many ways to avoid this. Polish tourism is mainly targeted to Polish people so visiting sights and attractions is not overpriced. On our private tours to Poland, we guarantee you will have a unique and unforgettable experience.
9. Poland is an affordable country to visit.
As previously mentioned, Poland doesn’t target international travelers as their main market. Therefore, prices are affordable compared to many other destinations in Europe. In Poland, you can have a luxury vacation, taste delicious Polish cuisine and enjoy local tours all at a reasonable price. Flight tickets are not overpriced which means you can have an extraordinary vacation in Poland and not ruin your budget.

10. Experience exceptional standards on your private tour to Poland.
Poland is a relatively new destination for world travelers. Poland is not overcrowded so you can easily have a customized vacation. You won’t be treated as just another tourist but as an individual who deserves the best service and care. We don’t want you to fall prey to the tourist trap and we ensure that this will never happen. People working in tourism in Poland are usually younger but with lots of experience. They are individuals who have travelled around the world allowing them to have lots of travel insights and a desire to promote their beautiful country. We want you to have an incredible trip!
