So on the morning of May 20th, I'll be flying into Warsaw Modlin Airport. I get in at 8:15 am. My goal is to get from there to Krakow in as little time as possible, to meet up with a group. After some internet snooping I ended up on the rozklad-pkp website. I put in my info and got this:

8 ppl needing a car/minibus with driver for a day going out from Sopot. Any recommendations for company/driver and/or what to expect to pay? Total driving distance is approx 250 km.
We are visiting Krakow in June and I'm very intrigued by Kalwaria Zebrzydowska. My wife recently had a hip replacement and her walking is a bit impaired, especially on steps. How accessible are the chapels there? I know there are handicapped accessible tours out of Krakow so there must be something accessible even to wheelchairs. Our situation is not that severe, but too many staircases or rough terrain would make a visit impossible.
I've heard mostly good things about Leo Express (from another travel site). But, also read one or two bad reviews. The bad reviews indicated that their online reservations (paid in full, apparently) were not honored.
However, the rest of the reviews were pretty good. I've not seen a reference to Leo Express on Thorn Tree so would like to know if any TT folks have experience with this train line.
A friend and I are going to be in Poland in July for a wedding. We land in Kraków on Wednesday morning and don't plan to be in Bydgoszcz on Friday afternoon. Any suggestions on what to see and what to do would be great!
I posted this in the Hungary section as well since that is where I be traveling from.
I couldn't get a direct train from Budapest to Kraków so I bought a ticket that requires me to change trains in Katowice (as recommended by the ticket agent). It was only after I bought the ticket that the the agent told me I'd need to buy a ticket from Katowice to Kraków upon my arrival in Katowice (I thought the ticket would cover both legs).
My questions are: Does this sound correct? Do you…

Polish police speaks broken English enough for you to understand them. Please do not pay on spot, contest it. Let them to write a report, it will go to the court. Polish court will not be able to chaise you as you do not have polish residency nor address in your passport. Invent one when they write their report. Polish police cannot…
So recently I bought myself a tongue drum and now I think I am ready to hit the streets. Do I need permits in Warsaw or can I just turn up and play? Any forbidden areas ? Anyone had bad experiences there ?
Are there tours from Warsaw to Kaliningrad?
Anyone toured Kaliningrad on there own from Warsaw? I know a Russian visa is required
and bus travel is possible. Curious to know how much of a hassle this is and/or is it worth
the time and expense to do so. Thanks for any feedback
