That's why, over 15 years ago, I decided to study Warsaw history, architecture, culture, etc. to become a fully-qualified city guide. Few years ago, after years spent in international corporations I gave it up and became a full-time tour guide. I've also engaged, as a volunteer, in the works of the foundation focused on documenting architectural details of old tenement houses in Warsaw.
I love travelling, meeting new people, discovering different cultures and traditions. I am easy going and energetic person, passionate about sharing my knowledge and experience with other people. I always try to make my guests feel like they're spending time with a friend.
With me you can discover different colors of the city. I will show you the Warsaw highlights but we will also see the places that are not popular among the tourists, but frequently visited by the Varsovians.
I will tell you the story of the rich, elegant city which almost disappeared from the Earth during IIWW, but then was reborn like the Phoenix , the city formed by the communists in accordance with their ideology, the city that changed completely its face after 1989. We will find the traces of Frederic Chopin, Maria Curie, Icchak Singer, admire beautiful royal residences: Wilanow and Lazienki and visit the places perfect for taking a deep breath and relax.
Take a look at the tour descriptions for inspiration or contact me directly - we together work out the best plan based on your interests and expectations.
I will be happy to host you in Warsaw as your personal tour guide.
Come over and be my guest!
A Recent Review of this guide
Jola was fantastic! I couldn't have asked for a better tour guide. I booked her almost last minute and she responded immediately. We booked the 5 hour tour and couldn't have been more pleased. Jola is passionate about Warsaw and it showed during the tour. She showed us places we wouldn't have been able to see on our own. The tour meant so much more because of her knowledge and love of Warsaw. She knows a ton about architecture and would have loved to have booked her architectural tour. Thank you Jola!
