We have just returned from a pilgrimage to Poland. Below are a few reflections from that tour:

Pre-trip communications with Catholic Journeys was very responsive. Airline itinerary was great – very manageable layovers. Hotel accommodations in Poland were first class all the way. Especially lovely was the Hotel in Krakow, but the other three were great too. Included meals were good – especially in Krakow. In-country transportation was great. Tour guide was great. Local guides were good. It was lovely having daily Mass, and prayers on the bus.

We look forward to traveling on pilgrimage with Catholic Journeys in the future. God bless you and your work.

Best regards. Tom & Paula

Dear Catholic Journeys,
My Poland Pilgrimage far exceeded my expectations. Our guide Anna was incredibly knowledgeable on Polish history and all of the Churches and sites we visited. Our driver Greg was kind and a safe driver. Fr. Tom was a great last minute addition. He weaved St. Faustina’s diary entries into his homilies. He enjoyed the adventure as much as the rest of us pilgrims. And speaking of my fellow pilgrims, we were a group of 16 which allowed us to get to know one another and we all got along very well which was special indeed.
I preferred our dinners at local restaurants vs at our hotels. More time (an hour or two) at Lagiewniki/Divine Mercy Capital would have been appreciated. I wear hearing aides, so headphones that go over the ears (instead of in the ear) would have helped me greatly in hearing Anna better. Our hotel accommodations were quiet and very nice.

Thank you,
Jenifer

I had a wonderful pilgrimage to Poland. Everything was well organized and all people involved were very helpful. The food was great and Anna could not have been a better tour guide. She was kind, knowledgeable, and had passion for her work. Father Tom was a tremendous asset to the trip. He was always available for confession and any other guidance. It was a blessing to have Deacon Hank there as well. Poland is an amazing country that I hope to take a Poland pilgrimage again!
Thanks for everything!
