Mary EtienneUnited States
Marta is a wonderful tour guide. Extremely knowledgeable about her tours and passionate about the history and people of Poland. She was also tremendously kind, considerate and accommodating. She even helped coordinate going to a destination that was not part of the normal tour. My husband and I travel throughout Europe often and Marta has been by far the best tour guide we have had. She did a great job teaching us about Warsaw. Great overall introduction to Warsaw. I highly recommend this tour and Marta.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Mary, all the best to All of you. Marta
Laura CarterUnited States
I have done many tours in many countries in the last few years, and although I've had some good guides, I've never had anyone as good as Marta! She was incredibly knowledgeable on a wide range of subjects, answered every question we threw at her, tailored the tour to our interests, and had a great sense of humor. Lots of laughs while we learned a lot! Thanks Marta!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much. It was great to guide you. Best regards to John, a great guide in future. All the best to you and I hope to see you sometimes and somewhere, Marta.
Michael McCluskeyUnited States

Bruce PaineUnited States
Yesterday I spent a happy/sad day with Marta. Sad because of seeing the heart wrenching difficulty of being at Treblinka, happy because of the support of Marta. I cannot imagine a more knowledgeable or accommodating guide. I can whole heartedly recommend Marta, both for her smiling personality and her ability to make a long day (12+ hours) manageable for an old guy like me.. I will never forget this day. PS - Ask Marta to take you to a real home cooked Polish meal for lunch. It was wonderful. :)
Edward SessionsUnited States
Marta was on time, informative, friendly, knowledgeable and willing to adjust the tour to our needs. I would recommend her to everyone. And her English was impeccable. We had a good time.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Edward and Carly for your nice comment and time we spent together. Have a good time in Poland during continuation of your tour. Marta
Such a sensitive and emotional part of history. We did this with our 16yr and 12yr old and Marta was fantastic and giving us the history before we participated in the guided tour. A part of human history we should never forget . Our children were moved and thankful for the education.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you. It was real pleasure to host you in Poland. Very difficult emotionally, but important part of human history. I hope I would meet some other Belizean in future. Thank you for choosing me. Marta
Marta was a great informative local guide. Made us feel so welcomed

The walking tour started promptly and ended promptly. I thank Marta because we saw a lot of Warsaw. In fact I learn so much about the history of Warsaw starting from the WWII history all the way up to the current state of this strong country. I highly recommend this walking tour because you get to see so much. Hope to return to Warsaw again soon. So much to do.

Marta is an awesome guide! Very friendly, meticulous (she looks out for you), and very knowledgeable (could answer most of our questions very well).

Marta is an excellent guide. She picked us up right on time and drove us comfortably to both Treblinka and the Wolf's Lair. Her knowledge of both sites is extensive and we thoroughly enjoyed having her as a part of our tour of Poland. I highly recommend her and would definitely ask for her again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you. It is very kind if you to read these words of appreciation of the visited places, that reveals the tragic past of the places. Best regards to you from warsaw.

Marta was a superb guide, she met us in good time at our hotel in Warsaw. She gave a fascinating walk and talk for over 3 hours describing the history of Warsaw and Poland. She answered all of our questions and gave us a great insight into Warsaw from a historical and modern day perspective. Not only was Marta very knowledegable but was humourous as well. Our group of 8 spent 4 days in Warsaw which we all enjoyed immensely but the time we spent with Marta was definitely the highlight!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Paul, thank you very much for a such excellent comment. I enjoyed time with you showing you Warsaw. Best regards and I promise to visit England soon. Marta

Robert KellyUnited States
Marsha SanticchiaUnited States
We were lucky to spend 1 1/2 days with Marta as our tour guide. She picked us up at the Warsaw airport when we arrived. We toured with her and she made sure that we saw all the highlights of Warsaw. She speaks very good English and she is very knowledgeable about the history of Poland. I would highly recommend Marta if you are visiting Poland.
A fantastic tour with an awesome guide! Marta is so much fun... her passion for Warsaw and its history are contagious. Best of all, she is completely down-to-earth and easy to be around, while also extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of the city, Poland, and eastern Europe in general (political, cultural, social, economical, historical, etc.); I'm quite educated and well-traveled myself, but I learned so much and simply had a great time. Top choice, no complaints whatsoever.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Wolf, I really enjoyed my late afternoon with you, showing you around and sharing with you my passion for the city and admiring your way of traveling and living. All the best wherever you are, Marta.

Royce DavisNew Zealand
What can I say about Marta... Marta made three airport visits before we made a connection. Her patience was amazing. Marta's knowledge of Jewish Warsaw is extraordinary. We asked Marta to take us to various places and she met every request plus more. My special request to visit Otwock was met, Marta knew where to take us as well as knowing its history. Should we ever return to Warsaw, Marta will be our first choice as a guide. We thank you Marta for making our visit so enjoyable. Thanks, Wendy and Royce
Nancy B.United States
We had a wonderful day in Warsaw with Marta. Her extensive knowledge of history, geography, architecture, the arts, and local lore was impressive. Her insights into local life: education, employment, and transportation was invaluable. Her pleasant smile and willingness to insure that our every wish was granted were delightful. The car was comfortable, well driven, and it was amazing to see her find a place to park at every site. We would recommend her services at the highest level possible.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Walter, thank you very much for such words of appreciation of different aspect of guiding service. I have had a wonderful day with you sharing my love for Warsaw. All the best, Marta.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Erin. It was great pleasure to spend with you Saturday in Warsaw - showing you hidden beauty and obvious sites of Warsaw. My best regards from Warsaw, Marta R..
Jeffrey MillerUnited States
Absolutely exceeded our expectations!! Marta was incredible. She was completely prepared to take us on a tour to uncover our family's polish roots. She took us to record halls and we worked with local officials going through documents. She was knowledgeable about everything polish. We toured various small towns outside of Warsaw. It was a pleasure to spend 12 hours in her company. She incorporated a lot of history on the tour. English was perfect and most of all she is a fine and very kind person.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you both for inquiry and choice of my services. I was really happy to help you arrange the family jigsaw of the past and see family roots in Poland. It is most wonderful to receive such great review of my work. Best regards, Marta.
Steven GoldbergWELLINGTON, FL, United States
Marta was great. The tour was just wonderful and she has a great understanding of the Jewish heritage and all that went on in Warsaw and Poland during the war. Great tour and she is just a lovely person to be with. Perfect English.

Steven GoldbergWELLINGTON, FL, United States
Marta was OUTSTANDING. She speaks perfect English and has a wonderful sense of the history. We drove from Warsaw to Auschwitz. Initially, I did not want to go to Birkenau, but we had one hour before the start of my tour. We drove 3 minutes to Birkenau and it made the whole experience worthwhile. We then drove to Krakow and back to Warsaw. She is just wonderful and it made the whole an wonderful experience. I would highly recommend.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Steve. It was very nice to accompany you on that day to Auschwitz and Krakow. I am also happy that you appreciate my suggestion to see as well Birkenau as a part of historical concept of extermination. The most wonderful is to receive such great review. Thank you very much, Marta.

Howard WeinerUnited States
Professional, knowledgeable, punctual and pleasant.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Howard. It was pleasure to be your guide, best regards from Warsaw, Marta R.
We had very little time to see Warsaw. A two-hour tour with Marta made us certain that we would return to this wonderful city! Marta was relaxed and confident and gave us an historical context to the things she showed us. She is clearly very proud of Warsaw and now we can understand why.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Marlene, better late than never as it is to say and I would like to thank you very much for choosing my services and thank you for your comment. The best is to know, that I awoke a feeling to Warsaw. Marta

Harry JonesUnited States
Marta did a terrific job of showing me Warsaw, to include the old town, new town, and modern town as well as the Jewish History trail. Her guidance enabled me to do some exploration of my own to several museums, eat local specialties at some very interesting places, and ride the different means of public transportation. She was very good at taking me to spots that I was particularly interested in. Her English is great.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Harry, thank you very much for your choice and kind words of appreciation. I am a bit too late with the answer, but it is better late than never. It is great to make one feel local in the city. Marta
Gary StarkUnited States
Outstanding walking tour of "new" and "old" town. Marta was excellent, explained the history of the places we saw (as well as the larger historical context of Polish history) and gave useful tips for visitors. I can recommend her most highly!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Gary, thank you very much for your appreciation. It was a pleasure for me to guide you and a group of students through the streets and squares of restored city of Warsaw and show you the stormy history of Poland in its beauty of Old and New Town of Warsaw. Best regards from Warsaw, Marta.
Marta was fantastic. Her knowledge of Warsaw is encyclopedic, and her training as a guide stood her in good stead. She is smart, entertaining, engaging and at ease with her city and it's history. She engages well with her clients and at all times we felt welcome.
Steve MIllerUnited States
Marta intuitively knew what I wanted to see, and it wasn't just the normal tourist attractions. She was flexible regarding my interests and was happy to show me how the locals live. An excellent host.

John ReadingUnited States
Our day tour of Warsaw with Marta was excellent. She went the extra mile to show us Warsaw. She knows a great deal about the city and Poland in general and takes great pride in showing her city to others. I highly recommend her to anyone.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you John. I also spend a great day with you. It was a pleasure to be your guide in my city. Best regards, Marta R.
We found it hard to get our bearings in this fragmented re-constructed city until we met up with Marta. She drove us where we wanted to go, tailoring the tour for our needs but also suggesting other sites based on our expressed interests. In sub-zero temperatures she cheerfully took photos with us and never looked at the clock continuing until we were satisfied. An emotional look at the remnants of the uprisings and a trip to Praga left us feeling so much closer to the heart and soul of this great city.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Nial, I would like to thank you for the great words of appreciation of my city and my service. I also enjoyed being with you, sharing that cold Sunday with people of such high knowledge of the historical facts of Poland throughout the time. Thank you a lot and I hope you would find time and willing to visit us here again. My best regards from warmer Warsaw :)
Robert SalaUnited States
Marta, was on time and great! What a great way to spend the afternoon
Mikhael El HaberQatar
If you're looking for an expert tour guide, then Marta is certainly the one to go with. Just tell her what you like to do or see, and she will customize your trip to enjoy Warsaw not like any other tourist. If Warsaw is a great city, then she will make it greater. Her wide knowledge on all cultural, historical, and entertaining sides of not only Poland but the world too, it will make your tour worth every penny you paid! Dziękuję marta!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mikhael, thank you very much for your comment. I am happy to hear that my guiding was worth the money and made you appreciate Warsaw in different meanings. I hope to see you again in Warsaw or Poland for film festivals. My very best regards from rainy Warsaw, Marta.
Was very satisfied with Marta. Was very informative and now we know a lot about Warsaw and the Jewish people who lived there. Would recommend her to anyone in a minute. Thanks a lot Marta

Jesper Nybo AndersenDenmark
We got a well-structured and committed customized trip. It was obvious that the guide was very competent guide had organized one customized trip with a combination of a more thorough review of the more recent historical and political developments in Poland, supplemented by a more traditional guided tour of the old Warsaw
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your choice of my services and very interesting project I was requested for. I am happy to know you were pleased with the tour and historical input of presentation. My best regards from Warsaw.
William M.United States
Marta was amazing. Even though my heritage dates back 150 years, she was tireless in exploring potential avenues of discovery. She is very intelligent and interested in Polish heritage. She had great suggestions about ways to learn more about my ancestors. I highly recommend her for any and all tours she offers. There is an endless list of good things to say about her.

David K.United States
Marta did an outstanding job! We had an unexpected cold and rainy day. She drove us around all the sites and braved the cold as we had to walk to get the necessary experience and education fully. She projected her voice so that everyone could hear clearly. Her knowledge and love of Poland was all inspiring. We still talk about the great experience. We loved it regardless the rain and cold.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Karen, Dave and Team! I still think of how the weather did not cooperate with us. The most important though is the sunny spirit that helped us to get on through the rain. I would like to thank you for choosing me and wish you all the best. Regards from warm Warsaw now! Marta
This was a fantastic way to be introduced to Warsaw. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and engaging. I booked this tour for myself and 73 year-old mother who was a bit hesitant about walking 3 hours. It was no problem and she loved sights and sounds of Warsaw! Our guide was a substitute for Marta so please forward our thanks and gratitude to her for a lovely afternoon and an unforgettable tour! I would book this again without hesitation. A++++++ :-)
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Debra, thank you very much for such a nice comment. I forwarded already to the guide your appreciation.

Alicja was an amazing tour guide in Krakow and Auschwitz. Alicja really knows her history, we were particularly interested in Jewish history during World War II and she was able to answer all of our questions and show us the most important sites. We will come back to Poland with our family because of Alicja and hope to meet her again one day. We consider her a friend! Thanks again, Alicja! Keith & Kim

We spent 7 days with Marta in June 2012, traveling across beautiful Poland. Marta is a very talented guide, well educated, and well spoken. Her knowledge of Poland and it's history is endless and she was willing to adjust the tour to meet our desires. You'll leave Poland with a greater understanding of its history and more importantly it's people. Her English is excellent and it's a real plus to have a guide with you to speak the Polish when you meet someone who doesn't speak English well.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Marie and Brad, I would like to thank you very much for choosing my service. I also had great time with you in Poland. I have to admit I love my job, as I can share my love to Poland, nature, art, history and get to know marvelous people, as you are. Thank you very much - all we went through would stay with me forever. Best regards from Warsaw at the beginning of autumn.

She was a very good guide, and very nice as a person. She had interesting stories that you really cant read from guide books.
