What people are saying about Masurian Lake District

I had the most amazing tour in this trip. Kris, my driver (also the tour agency owner) is wonderful and made my commute easy. He also gave me other insights on other places to visit in Warsaw. Waldemar, my tour guide at Wolfe Laire was wonderful! He was so knowledgeable about the history and the place and was also a great photographer for me along the way. He knew exactly where the best views were to take pictures. The weather and everything were perfect. I didn't want to leave... Though the commute is quite far (4 hours 1 way from Warsaw) but every single minute was so worth it. I am so glad that I visited this place during my stay in Poland. I will DEFINITELY recommend everyone to visit Wolf Laire when in Poland. Poland is so amazing and this is a site you do not want to miss!

Had an excellent tour with our on-site guide. Our driver from Warsaw was very good, personable, and informative whenever we asked a question. Highly recommend!

It was a great experience with the exception of the mosquitos. It is located in a forest so consider applying mosquito repellent.
