Ula was a wonderful guide! She was able to split our tour into 2 separate days due to my hectic schedule and spent more than our allowed 5 hours showing me many undiscovered sites of Jewish Warsaw. I saw many places I would have missed on my own. We visited the Praga area, the Cemetery, and had yummy treats along the way. She personalized the tour and we had lively and lovely conversations about all things "POLAND." Thank you for an extraordinary visit to your hometown!! I will be back.
