This trip was ideal as an introduction to Poland as we visited so many places, and experienced many of the different sides to Poland. There were some long days in the minibus but these were necessary to cover the miles, and were always broken up by stops which added to the holiday. This also enabled us to see lots of the Polish countryside. The trip was well organised and the hotels we stayed in were comfortable.
When they say'no frills' they ain't kidding! Sleeper trains, bamboo beds, basic accomodation. But if, like me, that doesn't bother you in the slightest, it is a FANTASTIC holiday. Amazing sights, beautiful waterfalls, elephants, rafting, wonderful food. The pace is fast, but it all comes to a relaxing end with the 3 days at the beach.
What a fabulous experience! The itinerary was very well organised and whilst there wasn't much free time, I did find the trip relaxing because there is so much to take in that you totally switch off from reality. We wouldn't class ourselves as seasoned travellers but we managed just fine. So long as you are clued up, read the trip notes and have an open mind, you'll be fine.
We realise that every holiday destination is also someone else's home and that we should leave places as we found them. Find out more about how we incorporate responsible travel into our adventure and activity holidays, and how you can help by donating to one of our responsisble travel projects.
