Handcrafted, Private Tours to Poland


You want to do things your way. We get it. MIR has been planning custom, private tours from scratch for over three decades, and we understand just how important flexibility is in travel.

Traveling privately on a custom private tour affords a great deal of flexibility – flexibility to immerse yourself in your own exclusive experience, to craft an itinerary around your interests, to go at your own pace, and to travel when it’s right for you.

How does it work? We’ll connect you with one of our Private Tour Designers so that you can share your vision and expectations with us.

We’ll ask you questions to better learn about your interests: Want to learn the painstaking Polish art of blowing and decorating glass Christmas ornaments? How about exploring your roots by visiting the villages your ancestors once called home?

We’ll share our extensive experience in the region – and our suggestions. And then we’ll dig into it and custom-craft a private tour itinerary for your review. Give us a call at 800-424-7289 to get started, or click here to be on your way.

Signature Experiences

Below are just a few examples of the signature experiences that MIR can arrange for you in Poland. Let them be a source of inspiration, then get in touch with one of our Private Tour Designers to craft an itinerary that’s uniquely suited to your travel goals, budget, and style.

  • Float leisurely down the River Dunajec on a handmade raft poled by gorale (Polish highlanders) in traditional costume, taking in the scenery of the Pieniny Mountains.
  • Learn how to make pierogi, Poland’s national dish, with your own private chef. Practice mixing and rolling the thin dough, then stuffing it with any number of savory ingredients including mashed potatoes and onions, ground meat, cheese, or even fruit.
  • Take a private guided tour of the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp, where an estimated 1 million people, 90% of them Jews, were tortured and killed. Visit the Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial and Museum, honor the victims, and learn more about the atrocities committed by the Nazis.
  • Sample some of Poland’s finest vodkas in true Slavic fashion hosted by vodka experts. The experience includes Polish accompaniments such as pickles, Polish sausages, horseradish, and smalec, traditionally prepared pork fat with herbs and spices.

And if you don’t feel that a fully-customized trip is what you seek, we’ve got the perfect solution.
