Resort Information

Vibrant Krakow is not a museum piece, but a bustling, lived-in city. It's especially lively in the evening, when it offers an ever-widening choice of eateries, from traditional Polish, Russian, German, Lithuanian and Jewish to some of the latest 'foodie' fads and fashions.

Itinerary

Day One

Fly to Krakow, meet your Tour Manager and transfer to your city-centre hotel. After check-in, head out to take your first look at this city that boasts the State Rooms of Wawel Castle, the stunning wooden altarpiece of the Mariacki church and the treasures of the Czartoryski Palace. Why not head to a cafe for hot chocolate, or to a local beer cellar to try the local brew?

Day Two

Discover Krakow on our included guided walking tour. This seat of Polish kings was also the former home of much-loved Cardinal Karol Wojtyla (later Pope John Paul II). Admire the medieval and Renaissance splendour of the city's great central square, Rynek Glowny, and its centrepiece the Sukiennice (Cloth Hall).

Here, behind the many-arched facade, you'll find market stalls to browse, cafes where you can sit and relax, and even an art gallery on the upper floor.

Day Three

Today we'll head to Auschwitz-Birkenau, 70km southwest of the city. On this harrowing and thought-provoking pilgrimage you'll tour the buildings of the death camp and gain a sense of the horrors of the "Final Solution".

Later we'll return to Krakow and you'll be free to explore. Visit the Kazimierz quarter - once the historic centre of Jewish culture in the city - or the 'Pharmacy under the Eagle' museum across the river in the Podgorze district - the cramped wartime ghetto.

Day Four

Today you're free to discover more of the city's sights, or to join an optional excursion to see the vast underground chambers, full-sized chapel and stupendous concert hall of Wieliczka's astonishing salt mine. Find out about life in the mines at the on-site museum, and browse the subterranean gift shop and cafe before catching the lift back to the surface.

Day Five

Depending on your flight time, you may have time to catch a final glimpse of the majestic city before we transfer you to the airport to check in for your flight home.

Combining hotel transfers

We sometimes need to combine transfers to and from your hotel. We always try to keep any wait to a minimum, but you may be asked to wait at the airport for up to an hour, while other incoming flights arrive, before the transfer to your hotel. Similarly, we may need to transfer you back to the airport up to three hours before your flight home departs.

If you have notified us of any special requirements, please check that they have been noted and acknowledged. This is especially important with any dietary needs you may have.

Disabled access

The majority of our tours involve a certain amount of walking, including a short walk from the coach stop to the town, attraction or venue you're visiting. If you are bringing a wheelchair, please let us know at the time of booking so that appropriate arrangements can be made.

Occasionally, for operational reasons, we may have to change the order of the excursions on your holiday. The final day-by-day itinerary will be confirmed on your Final Travel Documents, which you will receive approximately three weeks prior to your departure.

We done The Spirit Of Krakow trip. The excursions were good, especially the Aushwitz / Birkenau trip. The only thing I would say about this is, there wasn't enough time there. Perhaps there could have been some free time to go around on your own after the tour guide had finished. As all the trips were arranged for the mornings, there was plenty of time to do this, instead of being taken back to your hotel where there wasn't much to do unless you went into the old town. I found this a waste of a few hours when it could have been used to see more of the camps. The walking tour was very good, as was the salt mines. It would have been nice to have the option to go into Schindler's factory, instead of just viewing it from the outside. Perhaps this could be an option for an extra excursion!!!

Nottingham Single traveller
The actual holiday was good but there are one or two issues that I had=why do we as single travellers have to pay this ridiculous single room supplement ,is because you can get away with it?.On this holiday I had exactly the same facilities as everyone else on the trip,so how come I had to pay ?124extra? There are more and more single people travelling and there does'nt seem to be any good reason .I actually asked Roger our tour guide and he could'nt explain the reason.I also think that the currency {Zloty] might have been mentioned as one or two of us assumed it was the Euro. So as I said I enjoyed the holiday but I would think long and hard about going on another one of your holidays as the room supplement is excessive and it is extra money that I would have ti Krakow.

A very good well organised holiday.
A lovely hotel apart from the evening meals being slow to come.
One evening there was no food at all due to a problem in the kitchen.
Another evening the waiters were not keen to serve me as a tour group were due to arrive. They said I would have to wait an hour.
