Thank you for the great tour of Poland. We really enjoyed the country and the tour. Our tour guide Barbara was fab! So funny and knowledgeable and also punctual and friendly. The hotels you provided were excellent. We were usually able to sightsee some more to get the feel of the cities in the evenings as our hotels were at the doorsteps of the old towns. I love Polish restaurants and cafes and everything is so cheap. The tour excelled our expectations. We plan to use ITS Poland in the future and we will recommend Poland to all our friends.
