Krakow, Poland — A tour operators’ association in Poland is banning its employees from taking part in a planned tour to the city of Kraków, citing a “pigsty-back” model that “takes the business model and makes it into a pigsty.”
Krakows tour operators have said they’re not interested in taking part as they are currently working for a different operator.
The Polish Tour Operators’ Association (KONOVY) is organizing a protest against the tour operators.
The association is planning a protest at the Polish Embassy in Krakovskie, the capital of Poland, on Saturday, May 25, in which it wants the Polish tour operators to be banned from the tour in the city.
KONOVIES spokesman Janina Szczesna told Vice News the tour operator is a “dummy company” that doesn’t have any history.
The tour operators association in Kóra, Poland, plans to organize the protest at its office on May 25.
The protest comes as Krakos tour operators are already facing pressure from Polish lawmakers to drop their contract with the Polish Tour operator in Krapina.
The company’s contract expired on May 10.
It was scheduled to end in 2018.
A Polish lawmaker said on Tuesday that Krakosc tour operators should be excluded from the contract because they have a “very bad reputation” in the country.
The lawmakers also said they will push for a boycott of the tour company in Poland.
A number of Polish tour operator unions have also called for a ban on the tour services in Krańsk, the main town in the western part of the country, which is home to the Krakozdzor tour operator.
In a statement, the Polish Association of Tour Operations (PÄL) said the KONVSK tour operators “are not a trustworthy company that is responsible for the well-being of the Polish tourism industry.
These tours are very risky and there is no guarantee that they will take place.”
The tour operator group in Krasztęsk, where the protest is planned, did not respond to Vice News’ requests for comment. The Krakoń tour operator was founded in 1995.
It operates tours to Krakowski, Krakolc and Krzeszów.
