Who is coming on this trip?
This trip is for Workmen’s Circle members and non-members alike. We have developed a rich and comprehensive itinerary for this trip to Poland. In order for us to cover so much history and cultural heritage in ten days, this will be an active trip, requiring more than a modest level of activity including extensive walking (much of what we are doing is walking tours), including on uneven, unpaved, and rugged terrain. Participants should be active and prepared to keep pace with and positively engage within our traveling community.
How will we travel to Poland?
A group flight is being organized from New York City to Warsaw as a separate cost. You are responsible for your transportation to/from New York and home. Flight arrangements will be released in January for all interested participants. You may also choose the option of booking your own travel should you choose to do so.
Who staffs the program?
Our trip will include daily guides and many special guests and scholars. The Workmen’s Circle staff will include Executive Director Ann Toback and Event Manager Dave Dossick. Workmen’s Circle has partnered with Taube Philanthropies, who will be providing tour guides, educators, scholars, and tours throughout the trip.
What’s the group size?
We are planning on a maximum of 40 guests, not including staff.

Will I need a visa?
If you travel with an American, Canadian, or EU passport, you don’t need a visa to enter Poland, but your passport will need to be valid for at least six months from your date of entry to Poland.
Will there be free/down time?
While the itinerary is quite intensive, we do set aside time for relaxation, shopping, and personal exploration.
