Date: Aug 7/18

Jola took my family to Treblinka. She was incredibly sensitive to the delicate history and shared information with us including archival photos, historical information and personal stories of survivors and historians. She was responsive to questions I had before our tour and she was so easy to be with. On her page, she describes herself as easy-going and passionate and I totally agree. Moreover, she wants people to feel like they are traveling with a friend and we did feel that way! Highly recommend!!

I have traveled all over the world and have used many travel guides. I would have to say Jola did a great job! She met us at our Airbnb and was flexibale to change her tour to meet our needs. She was very personable and friendly giving all three of us her attention. Jola knew Warsaw and spoke passionately about Polish historical events. Jola was able to answer our questions about everything (even my sisters plants and flowers questions). She clearly spoke English and had a comfortable car.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your feedback, Jerry. I really enjoyed the time spent with all three of you :)

Date: Jul 4/18

I really enjoyed my walking tour of Warsaw with Jola. Jola is an excellent guide and extremely knowledgeable about the sights in the town and their overall context in Polish history. She also took a few minutes at the start of the tour to discuss Polish history which provided a good background. Jola was flexible and asked several times if there were other areas of the City that interested me or that I wanted to see. I would highly recommend Jola's tour for your visit to Poland! Thank you so much Jola

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Rick. It was a real pleasure to guide someone so much interested in our history, so open-minded and admiring beauty of Warsaw :-)

Tour: #407363, Private Walking Tour Warsaw with Jola, Warsaw, Poland    view tour
Date: Jun 9/18

We had a private walking tour for 10 people with Jola in early June. We found Jola to be punctual, very informative and very willing to stop for a drink when we were lagging a little in the heat - 30 degrees or so. She was booked for three hours but spent about 3 and a half hours with us in total. I would definitely recommend Jola for future walking tours.

Tour: Warsaw Architecture and Town Planning in 20th century, Warsaw, Poland
Date: Mar 17/18

Jola led a deeply informative and insightful full-day customized tour of expected Warsaw destinations and less-expected but important sites including Social Realist urban planning and housing developments. Her knowledge is wide-ranging and she is well versed with the official version and with other perspectives including her own, informed by life under both communism and capitalism. She brought an iPad loaded with historical maps and photos. I can't imagine a better introduction to Warsaw. Excellent!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Graham, thank you very much for your kind words. It was a real pleasure for me to spend the day with you and Nat and share my knowledge with people so much engaged in the tour, adding their comments and information referred to the sites we've visited. Many thanks!
