First of all, thank you. Thank you to all of you who went through the horrible 2020 with us. Thank you to all of you who eventually came to Poland in 2021 and 2022. We had to go through a lot, and through no fault of our own. But seeing how much you enjoyed our tours made all our efforts worth it!Unfortunately, we've come to a point where we have to make some tough decisions.We fought hard. We were heartbroken to have to say goodbye to our employees at the office, to the team that we loved. We had to find other jobs to support our family, while at the same time carrying all the work at RealPoland on our shoulders. We didn't give up on it. We promised you tours and we were determined to make them happen as soon as it was possible to travel again. Even if it meant a lot of work and no remuneration.Can you imagine the joy that we felt when the first group came after the borders opened up in 2021? We're a little, family-owned company, which makes us truly dedicated and passionate about what we do, but at the same time, very vulnerable to external factors. Yet, with a lot of effort, we managed to survive the pandemics!But then came Putin and crushed our dreams. We got involved in voluntary work to help Ukrainians who fled the war and found their safe place in our country. But even though nothing indicated that Poland was in any danger, the incoming tourist industry was adversely affected. Again.Poland has been safe to visit this year. But can we guarantee safety next year? Taking into account the recent escalation of the war in Ukraine, the sabotage incidents on the Baltic sea, the preventive measures that our government is currently taking, the rocketing inflation, the petrol prices that are 30% higher than in the U.S... Next year is too time-distant for a little local company like ours to make promises and be confident we can keep them.We're heartbroken to say that we won't be offering any dates for 2023 and RealPoland is going out of business.We will be answering your emails, so if there is anything that you still need to discuss with us, contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.Please be patient if we can't answer all emails right away. You can be sure your emails will not be ignored.
Kind regards,RealPoland Tours Team
