Renata was wonderful. This was just what we hoped that it would be- a quick and informative view of this beautiful city that has such an important place in the worlds history. We would definitely recommend this tour to all. We should definitely recommend Renata. We saw a peacock and an impromptu Chopin concert by a fellow tourist at the Holy Cross Church. Very serendipitous!!! Great Day!!

Renata gave a very good tour of Warsaw. Her English is good and she will give you historical information on all of the sights. It is well worth the reasonable costs if your time in Warsaw is limited.

Renata met us on time and we began the tour in a clean, comfortable car. She told us about the area in which we are staying and made a great stop to the university library and their roof garden, an excellent space that I would have missed. We then proceeded to tour the rest of the town - at times walking and at times driving, and she was a wealth of information about the history and modern city.

Renate was thorough, friendly, patient with the older members of our party, knowledgeable, and imparted her love of her beautiful city. We felt we had a good overview of the cultural and historical highlights, and a sense of life in Warsaw. We never would have been able to acquaint ourselves as well on our own. In short, we would highly recommend her!

Renata took a long time to warm up and finally indicated she had personal issues weighing on her mind. While I'm sorry for her personal situation, maybe she should not have signed up for the tour. I never received the message she said she sent regarding the sabbath closure of a number of the sites we were supposed to see - this was also unfortunate. The tour worked but it was disappointing not to see the cemetery or the synagogue.

The guide Renate was excellent. She was informative interesting and knowledgeable. The whole trip went like clockwork. I had wanted to find a particular stone at the Treblinka memorial and did prep to take me straight to it. We were not rushed and were able to take our time. First class. Renata was also able to offer advice on where to get help with my research which shows how clued up and knowledgeable she is. Thank you

While there is not SO MUCH to see at the Treblinka site itself, going there with Renata is what made this a highly worthwhile experience for me. She has tremendous knowledge of the history involved, but just as valuable to me was her insight into life in her country and life itself. I make a point of visiting places such as this in my travels, it is not something I would characterize as fun. Even so, I can honestly say I truly enjoyed the tour. Thanks Renata!

We just finished our tour with Renata in Poland and we couldn't be happier. Renata was so well educated on the history of Poland, specifically concerning Jews which is what we had asked for. Additionally, she was so accomodating and made sure we got to see everything we wanted, including our family's hometown of Lodz. She really went above and beyond, we cannot thank her enough for this wonderful and meaningful trip!! We will definitely be recommending her to family and friends back home!! Always on time!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for words of appreciation. I am happy too, that I could show you as much as possible during 6 days of your visit to Poland. Still a lot remained to be seen, so - till your next visit!

Since Renata couldn't do the tour she kindly secured Piotr to take her place, for which I am very grateful. I was doing research for my book and Piotr, her replacement, and I read the same scholarly book: The Warsaw Ghetto: a guide to the perished city. As an expert on the Jewish Warsaw Ghetto, he exceeded my expectations. Even found a sewer lid that existed in 1942-3 Warsaw Ghetto.I can't sing his praises enough. Thank you Renata and Piotr.

She took us to all of the main sights and gave us a personal private tour of each. Do not miss Wilanow Palace. It is gorgeous both inside and out with lovely grounds (garden). It took only about 15 mins or so (by car) from the old town, definitely worth it. Highly recommend this tour and Renata!

Very knowledgeable and informative--and very kind to drag around the city with me when my camera broke--i really appreciated that--she was not obligated to do that, so credit to her for it. only problem for me is that two places I requested to visit, one requested well in advance, were closed on the days that she scheduled the visits. So maybe you just need to check for yourself if something is important to you. Again---she was very nice and flexible and was a good tour guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Harriett, thank you for your opinion, which I feel needs to be answered. You wrote in one of your mails such request: "we really do not want to go to any churches or museums". These are your words, and I answered: "I understand, no churches, no museums". So you should not feel disappointed that something was closed. I hope that 4 hours of my additional assistance when I drove you to arrange fixing your broken camera can fully compensate your disappointment. Best regards, Renata

Because Renata has lived her entire life in the Warsaw area her knowledge of all Poland is excellent. Because she spent 2 years in England when she was 20 her English and her historic perspectives are also excellent. Unlike other guides Renata condenses her extensive knowledge in a succinct yet complete way. The hours flew as she shared her excitement for the Polish people and their land.

Renata is an excellent and well informed guide. She is an interesting person in addition to her knowledge used in guiding tours. The park surrounding Chopin's birthplace is one of the most beautiful places I have ever been.

When in a very small town she interacted with locals in order to make sure we saw all the things we wanted to see. she was very dependable, EXTREMELY knowledgable and just an all around pleasant person to be around. We spent two full days with her and would gladly use her agin as a tour guide and recommend her to friends nd family.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello, Cynthia, Thank you for all kind words of appreciation. I also enjoyed the tour with you and too, learnt something about the places we visited. I will gladly see you two again one day. All the best, Renata

Renata was the perfect guide to help me find the village where my grandmother grew up. We visited the village church on Sunday where mass was being said and the grave of my great grandparents behind it. We located the dairy farm where my second cousin and her family lived. We had a delicious family meal where Renata helped me interact with this wonderful family. It was as if she was part of the family . Her manner and quickness to translate a family discussion made it an awesome experience :)

We spent 6 days with Renata. She was an awesome tour guide and a very easy person to be with. We made the most of our time without rushing. We were comfortable and she was attentive to our interests. You never know when you hire a guide for that long if you will be compatible. I believe Renata could be compatible with anyone. She also went out of her way to find an ancestors grave site. We will recommend Renata to our friends interested in visiting Poland and we will hire her again in the future.

Renata was a wonderful tour guide. She made sure we saw the parts of Warsaw we really wanted to see and more. She was very knowledgeable about the history and current events. We had a wonderful tour! Very personal and relaxing. I would highly recommend this tour for anyone who wants to get to know the city and doesn't want to travel on a bus to do it!!

Renata came to my hotel on time as planned. She drove us to Ostrolenka, my folks' home town, where she took us to all the sites I had previously requested. She took us to the Records department at the City Hall and tried her best to get us information, with the clerks who were very cooperative. I would not hesitate to reccommend her to anyone else as a guide and translater.

This was a continuation of our morning City Tour. Renata showed again her good qualities: knowledge, intelligence, and willingness to adapt to our needs.She had prepared in advance the visit to the Jewish Cemetery so we could locate the graves of my late husband's ancestors. I appreciated very much her help in this regard. She is an excellent guide.

Excellent tour. We saw the places we were interested in and learnt much of Polish history. Renata is a well informed, intelligent guide. She has a rich educational background that is evident in her explanations. She was friendly and understanding of our preferences and some physical limitations. We enjoyed viewing several beautiful parts of Warsaw.

This was an excellent start to our short trip and put the area, politics and people into context and prospective for us. We would certainly use ToursByLocals and Renata again (if we have the chance).
