We had a wonderful day touring Warsaw with Gosia. She is very knowledgeable about the city and its colorful history. She is quite accommodating to our needs and desires. And, a most pleasant person to be around. While we were touring, she was greeted by some people she had previously toured. They told us she is an excellent guide. We couldn't agree more! Highly recommended.
