Travel Style Travel Style Relaxed A lot of free time, with very few inclusions. Ideal for independent and/or low-key travelers and cruisers.
Full on For those looking to maximize their sight seeing time. You thrive on a packed day’s schedule from 8 am to 6pm, with some (but limited) free time. Most activities and meals included.
Mixed You will have solid amounts of both free time and structured time with some activities and meals included.

Trip Type Trip Type Group Tour Groups are between 25-60 people, typically ~30-40. Usually there will be many opportunities to split off and enjoy meals and excursions in smaller groups. This is the most economical way to travel, saving up to 40% versus booking the same itinerary yourself.
Small Group Tour Small groups are usually defined as between 10 and 24 travelers, often less. If you're the kind of person who enjoys more intimate experiences and personal service this is a good choice. All else being equal you will pay a premium for this style vs a larger group tour.
River Cruise These vessels are smaller than most ocean cruisers, limiting which amenties are available. Passenger counts can vary. One of the biggest advantages of a river cruise is the ability to dock at smaller ports and local villages.
Small Ship Cruise Small ship cruises usually have a max passenger count of 500. The primary purpose of these trips is to spend time off the vessel in local ports (e.g. Mediterranean) or experiencing nature (e.g Galapagos or Antarctica). Cabins can vary from budget to luxury.
Private Guided Private tours give you the undivided attention of a guide, and often involve special access to sites and unique experiences not available to larger groups. This is a great option for families, couples, and small friend groups. Expect to pay a bit more for the extra service.
Self Guided / Independent Tour A travel company plans your itinerary and arranges all the logistics including lodging, local activities, and transportantion. You have the flexibility of a solo trip while still getting the convience and time savings of expert planning. Get 90% of the benefits of a tour, without a guide.
Vacation / Holiday Package Similar to a self guided tour, this usually involves a home base, such as a hotel or resort, with packaged activities and day tours as a part of the stay.
Large Ship Cruise This is the "floating city" experience, with multiple ways to enjoy your vacation aboard the ship as much as on land. Ships are multiple floors, provide several activities, culinary, and shopping options. They often make fewer stops and have less time available for shore excursions.

Itinerary Focus

    Did a long break trip (or fall break) with Euroadventures on their "Best of the East" adventure. I had always wanted to travel to the destinations (especially Prague, Krakow & Budapest) and the trip and organization did not disappoint. Everything really was top notch from the itinerary and pace of the trip to the accommodations to the trip leader. By the end of the trip our group went from strangers (there were some traveling together as groups of friends) to all great friends. Highly recommend this trip, especially for those looking for something slightly off the beaten path (especially Krakow) and this company.

    I recently returned from the 11 day Classic Poland trip which I took with my cousin. We were pleasantly surprised with just how whimsical and charming much of Poland is. Our guide, Jolanta Postrzygacz, was fabulous. She consistently went the extra mile to make everyone happy including offering "treats" representative of Poland during longer coach rides. While the hotels weren't super deluxe, they were pretty comfortable and most of the included meals were wonderful. The tours were very informative and enjoyable. It was an excellent trip and I highly recommend it!

    There are so many great things to say about my European trip of a lifetime. The people that made it was my fellow topdeckers and of course the Fab Tour guide Matt Stewart. This is a trip that I will never forget, so many lovely memories I will cherish forever. We was very lucky with Matt because he really took time to talk to us and make us all feel relaxed with each other and asked us what we wanted to do. He was so knowledgable about all the places we went to, I remember thinking to myself this guy is pretty cool the fact he knows so well about the history and culture of each place especially the amount of cities we travelled to. Matt made the trip fun, interesting, exciting and I hope that if I was to ever do a top deck again one day he would be the tour guide or I think I would be disappointed. Have recommended top deck to so many people, memories I will have for a lifetime.

    Poland Tours and Travel Guide

    Poland Attractions & Landmarks Guide

    One of the largest countries in Central Europe, Poland is a beautiful place to visit, with a fascinating history. Since emerging war torn after World War II, it has grown in popularity as a tourist destination, showcasing its own brand of European charm. There are endless attractions for history buffs in the major cities, Krakow and Warsaw, and plenty of "off the beaten track" opportunities for the more adventurous.

    Poland is a beautiful destination, rich in history, mythical folklore, cultural heritage, and with gorgeous scenic landscapes to offer. Many Polish travel sights have acquired a worldwide reputation and have made it onto the UNESCO World Heritage Sites list. The cities, nature, food, and infamous beer selections truly make Poland a must-see country for any traveler.

    The Main Cities in Poland

    There are 16 cities in Poland that have an estimated population of more than 200,000. Many of the main cities bring in thousands of multinational tourists every year.

    1. Warsaw is Poland's Capital city and leading tourist attraction. This Polish city is the perfect balance of historic sites, peaceful green spaces, and modernity. It is praised for its indestructibility and is commonly referred to as the phoenix for its rising up from the ashes after WWII.
    2. Krakow was named the official European Center of Culture by the European Union. It is one of the most politically and culturally significant cities of Poland. With its medieval core, Krakow has a historic city centre and jewish district that history buffs tend to flock to.
    3. Wroclaw is known for having the best living conditions in Poland. It is one of the oldest and most attractive cities in Poland. It consists of islands, lush green spaces, and is a dynamic centre of culture.
    4. What was once known for its immense textile industry, Łódź, is now a modern metropolis. It is famous for its architecture, technological industries, jewish heritage, and for being the centre of Poland's film industry.

    Polish Souvenirs

    There are certain items that you can only purchase in Poland and you won't have any trouble finding something very interesting for everyone on your list.

    If you have the time to stop and visit the Bialowieza Forest you will want to bring back something to remind you of the natural beauty the forest holds. What better item to purchase than Bison Grass Vodka? This vodka is made like normal vodka, but is finished off with an infusion of herbs from the primeval forests of Białowieża.

    Since the middle ages, Poland has been known for its skillful wood carvings. You can take a folksy gnome figurine or a Wawel dragon home to remind you of the fairytale history in Poland.

    If you have come to Poland for the purpose of being submerged in the history the country has to offer then you will want to buy a Home Army anchor pin. The local Poles wear this pin to honor the efforts of the Home Army and the brave soldiers of the Warsaw Uprising who rose against the Nazis in 1944.

    When visiting the Wieliczka Salt Mines you have the opportunity to purchase actual salt from the mines or one of the salt lamps that make for great decor. What was once used as a form of currency and carted to the tables of kings can now be bought for a couple of dollars at the gift shop of the on-site museum.

    Top Cultural Activities in Poland

    If you're looking for a destination rich in cultural activities then you have definitely picked the right place. Poland is known for cultural activities that send shivers down your spine, yet somehow manage to uplift spirits by shedding light on how far we have come since WWII.

    Państwowe Muzeum Auschwitz-Birkenau is one of the darkest cultural activities a traveler can choose to partake in. A concentration camp thats grounds are now devoted to the Jews that lost their lives during the Holocaust, is a somber yet extremely informational tour that will leave you with a feeling you will never forget. Take a walk to the train ramp where thousands of men, women, and children disembarked for their final ride. You will also see where over a million people were killed in gas chambers.

    The amazing guided tour of Wieliczka Salt Mine will be a day to remember. What is now an UNESCO World Heritage Site, once produced mass amounts of salt for over seven centuries. It is an underground tunnel system of mystic chambers and corridors made of salt. Generations of miners carved exquisite statues, cathedrals, and chapels out of the salt that was once so abundant.

    The Wawel Royal Castle was once home to kings of many generations, but is now one of Poland's major art museums. The museum is filled with exhibits made up of Renaissance art, tapestries, sculptures, and much more. It is possible to cover the entire castle in a single day, but you will need to get an early start.

    When visiting Poland, Old Town Warsaw is an absolute must. The oldest part of the city symbolizes Poland's rise from the ashes after being destroyed during WWII. When being reconstructed, builders attempted to recreate the buildings that stood before and used previous materials to rebuild. When walking the cobblestone streets you will notice the medieval architecture amongst cafes and restaurants. It is considered to be an architectural treasure and UNESCO World Heritage Site.

    As the Nazis were making their way through Poland, a military rebellion arose. It was an underground resistance movement and although the uprising of 1944 failed it is looked at today as a proud event for Poland.

    By visiting the Warsaw Rising Museum you can witness the artifacts of those who died trying to free their country. It is jam packed with interactive displays, video footage, photographs, and much more that will leave a lasting impact on those who pay a visit.

    Top Foods to Try in Poland

    The Polish people create amazing dishes with base ingredients: meat, cheese, and potatoes. Americans have come to love Polish cuisine and have adopted many of the traditional Polish dishes such as Pierogi, the delicious meat or veggie filled dumplings and the traditional kielbasa sausage. The scrumptious flavors do not stop here though; here are some Polish foods that should not be overlooked:

    The Poles take pride in their Bigos, also known as “hunters stew.” This dish is made up of different meats, cabbage, sausages, mushrooms and spices. The meal is cooked for hours and sometimes even days to get the most flavor out of all of the food items.

    You may have had a potato pancake, but probably never the way the Poles make them. The placki ziemniaczane (potato pancakes) are thin pancakes made with onion, carrots, parsnips and other vegetables. You can top them with sour cream or even powdered sugar.

    Golbaki is a very popular dish in Poland. It is a cabbage roll made of minced pork, rice, onion, and mushroom wrapped in white cabbage leaves and simmered in fat.

    If you're in the mood for Polish pasta during your stay, you will want to try Lazanki. This pasta is commonly served with sour cabbage, sausage, other meats and mushrooms. It is sometimes referred to as the Polish version of stroganoff.

    When is the Best Time to Visit Poland?
