Tomasz enabled connections with my family history I could never have made alone. His skills are to engage with a range of people to draw out local knowledge, "village memory". His fluency in languages, his skills in interpretation and his willingness to take my search to heart ensured the success of the trip. He also digitally recorded a number of valuable documents which I now have in my safekeeping. I not only discovered my ancestors' past but was privileged to experience Ukrainian rural culture today.

It was a pleasant experience to be with you on our trip in Galicia, the home land of our family. We, all the four cousins, have been impressed very much by your kind and nice personality, as well as from your knowledge on the subject of the Jews in the area. We appreciate very much the effort to find citizens from the community, for helping to locate the house and the farm that belonged to our Grandfather. We were very lucky to have you as our guide, and intend to recommend you to friends and family.

Tomasz was an excellent guide for the discover your shtetl tour. We visited two villages near Lviv that my ancestors left in the early 1900s. He had done research on each town so that when we arrived he had identified specific locations to visit. He was also creative and flexible: when a building in a cemetery was locked, he called and found the caretaker who unlocked it; same with a small local museum. He even found an elderly woman to tell us recollections of the past. I highly recommend Tomasz.

Tomasz travelled to Przemysl, Poland to do genealogical research at the archives on my behalf. When I corresponded with him by e-mail regarding the research he responded in a timely manner. He was able to locate many documents about my family. We look forward to meeting him for our tours when we arrive in the Ukraine in Spring.

Thank you for all you did to put me in touch with my Dad's family. It was an emotional and moving experience for me as they were so welcoming and embraced Ken and I so wholeheartedly. We were happy to share our experience with you and Wasyl who , by the way was a great help as well.

i must let your company and customers know that i can only give every area i dealt with your company and my tour guide 5 star.tomasz was the most informed educated tour guide i could have hoped to have.He made our trip a memory never to be forgotten.there was never a request,suggestion,information i wanted that he did not put himself out to do.For anyone wanting to really know Ukraine and especially the Jewish tour of Ukraine nobody could have done a better job.make sure you book with him.
