Wonderful guid and very knowledgeable about the history
Jola is a polite, friendly and knowledgeable guide who showed us the beautiful old-town of Warsaw along with a somber look at Warsaw's Jewish history. Highly recommended.
Jola is a friendly and knowledgable local guide who provided us with a wonderful day in Warsaw. Throughout the day we visited Frederic Chopin's birthplace, baptisimal church and special points of interest throughout Warsaw. The day was brought to an end with a fabulous Chopin concert by a professional pianist in a setting quite like what Chopin would have played in. This tour is highly recommended.

Very informative tour--in the short time we had, she efficiently showed us the highlights of Warsaw.

Very in depth tour of history of Jewish life in Warsaw with visiting the sites of what's left, or where it used to be. Jola had old maps and photographs and showed great knowledge of the topic and history. Unfortunately we could not visit the graveyard due to the holiday, but she took us to the Villa in the Zoo instead and I highly recommend seeing it as it is one rare positive spot in this part of dark history. It was a touching but enlightening tour that left us moved, and Jola was excellent.

We booked Jola for 2 days of tours: Chopin Tour and Highlights Tour. Jola is wonderful! She is extremely passionate about making her guests feel welcome and comfortable, is highly reliable, and is very knowledgeable about the history and details of each tour. She is flexible and will tailor the tours based on request (or weather). Even before the end of the two days, we felt like Jola was more like our friend/family than someone taking us around because it was "work." We definitely recommend Jola.

Jola was extremely knowledgeable about the history of Warsaw and told us many interesting facts and stories. We only had 4 hours but we felt we saw so much in an efficient manner. We would highly recommend Jola as a guide .
Richard RutherfordUnited States
Jola is a wonderful person. She takes great pride in Warsaw and the effort she puts into showing you around is very evident. She does a very detailed job in explaining the history of the buildings, statues, streets, parks, and everything that makes Warsaw unique. She was ON TIME and was very prepared from the start. You did not feel rushed during the tour. I would HIGHLY recommend asking for her guidance and tour expertise.

Marc C.United States
The "Colors of the Praga District" tour with Jola W. was the highlight of our trip to Warsaw. Jola is a great guide with excellent organization, in-depth knowledge, and a true love for the city and it's people. With this tour we are able to see the history, art, and spirit of the polish people rather than focusing on the actions of occupying forces throughout history. We highly recommend this tour, and we plan to contact Jola for another tour when we return to Warsaw.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Marc, Many thanks for your kind words. It was so nice to spend this time with you, with your active and enthusiastic approach and real interest in everything that you saw. I will be more than happy to meet you again in Warsaw :)

Jola was superb. she was punctual, exceptionally knowledgable about Warsaw and the history of Poland, but could also revommend nice shopping areas. She was also very pleasant. Our overall stay in Warsaw was greatly enhanced by our private tour with her.

Jola gave me an amazing insight into probably one of the most interesting tours out of the typical "tourists' map". It was a great and enlightening experience, full of interesting details about the Praga district and it's history.

Jola is very knowledgeable of Warsaw and Polish history and culture. When seeking a private tour, Jola was the only one that responded with a proposed agenda based on my specific interests. I really appreciated the amount of planning, preparation, and research she put into our tour of Praga. I got to see remarkable murals by global artists, THE black market, and a wide range of art and architecture.
Suzanne ModesittUnited States
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!
Patrick SanchezUnited States

Jola arrived on time and gave us a great tour even with rain and cold. She answered all our many questions and took us to a number of different places in the city we would have likely not seen or understood the background.

Thank you, Jola, for shephering our little group through day 1 of Warsaw. Very competent and complete overview if the city.
Carmelita StoneUnited States
Jola was right on time! That is a huge plus in my book. She had a big smile on her face when she met up with us. She was friendly, loaded with interesting information and history of Warsaw. She made sure we saw the "little " things that made our tour so much more enjoyable than just blah blah blah. You can tell she loves her work and those in your touring groups reap that reward. 2 thumbs up for Jola.
