Warsaw is Poland’s capital city. It’s very crowded during the summer season as it is a compulsory point of visiting for everyone who comes to Poland for the first time. It is good to realize how it has developed for the last 20 years.
Big cities such as Warsaw or Cracow might be crowded in the high summer season. It is much more convenient to organize such a trip in the Autumn or Spring seasons.
We particularly encourage solo explorers and small groups of independent travelers to try our trips, ensuring that their cultural experience isn't marred by the dynamics that larger organized group tours can lend themselves to. This also helps to discourage waves of mass tourism in increasingly popular travel destinations.
As rail tours are based on common-shared transportation we encourage our customers to travel with an open, respectful attitude towards other travelers and local residents. We provide basic language essentials in each of our travel packs to help foster cultural immersion, and encourage getting off the beaten track to gain a truly authentic experience of each city that you visit.
