Heart touching

The visit to the Pope's homeland was one of the highlights of my visit to Poland. The tour was very well organized and the driver who took us was an authentic guide! Thank you Marek for your follow up. He was always telling more stories than we saw. The sanctuary of divine mercy is equally wonderful. I advise this tour to everyone

Wonderful Tour! A must do if you're in Krakow.

My family and I wanted to visit Wadowice, the birthplace of Pope John Paul II and the sanctuary of St. Faustina nearby Krakow, so we signed up for this tour. It was great - our driver and guide Marek was excellent: he was kind, knowledgeable, diligent, and super open in sharing about his country Poland. The schedule was well-timed to give enough time at both sites and despite the heat, we all had a memorable time. Highly recommended.
