Date: Oct 20/18

Maggie is a wonderful lady who take care of her clients so well. She is very knowledgeable and makes sure everyone understands the history of this area,the old and the new. She was on time, and ready for our group to learn all about Gdansk. Made sure we were comfortable with all that we did. We couldn't ask for anything better. We spent a wonderful day with Maggie and would recommend her highly. Driver was excellent also. If in Gdansk get in touch with her, you will not be disappointed.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Cathy, Thank you very much for your rating. I appreciate that I could show you my hometown, to tell you about it and that you liked it. Thank you for choosing Tours By Locals, which celebrates 10 years of activity this year and me as your and their guide.

Malgorzata (Maggie) is very knowledgeable on the Gdansk area. We visited for a day and she even went out of her way to help us search our Jewish family tree. A very special day for us.

Maggi was a wonderful and enthusiastic guide in the Gdansk area. She demonstrated flexibility when our ship chose to dock in Gdansk rather than Gdynia as originally planned. She uses a separate driver to provide convenience and eliminate delays. She is very well informed and took excellent care of us.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Sandra for your kind words. Gdansk is so beautiful and interesting city that it is not difficult to be its enthusiast. Best regards to all of you. Maggie

Tour: Gdansk/Danzig and West Prussia or East Prussia #Ancestry Trip, Gdansk, Poland
Date: May 1/17

Excellent tour with Maggie. She had researched my family history so the tour was very customised to the regions my ancestors were from. Was great to see the church my ancestors worshipped at, and the baptismal font that was used back in the day. As we were visiting very small villages there would have been no way I could have done the tour myself, so it was well worth while.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Sherry for your review. During the registers investigation I found that your ancestors lived in a few villages around Kokoszkowy and I wanted to show you as much as it was possible in a short time. You came here from a distant country and it was pleasure to show you places where your ancestors were born, married, lived and prayed.

Date: Jun 25/16

Malgorzata was absolutely amazing!!!! I told her that my ancestors were Kashubian and provided her with a few details. This was during our tour. She changed the itinerary to accommodate me visiting the villages and cemeteries. It was an exceptional day for me. I will return to do further research and I will ask Malgorzala to be my guide and help me. She was absolutely the very best. Jane Halas of Canada

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Jane. Thank you for your kind review. We have changed a little bit our return way only. But it was nice to read that you could find the places where you can start your further investigations. It was also very nice day for me. Remember me to your husband. Kind regards Maggie (Malgorzata)

Tour: Gdańsk - Gdynia, Gdansk, Poland
Date: Aug 22/15

Our tour of Gdansk, Poland was the biggest and best surpise of the ten countries we visited on our cruise. Maggie did an excellent job of showing us the sights and picking things we told her we were interested in seeing. She also showed genuine concern from my walking issue (stroke 7 years ago). She picked an excellent restaurant in Gdansk for our "local Polish" lunch of Perioges. it was an enjoyable day. The vehicle and driver she hired for our tour was excellent.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi George, Thank you very much for your nice comments. I was very stressed to find the proper sidewalks and walkways however sometimes you had chosen your path and I felt in such moments big pain I believe you didn"t. Remember me to your wife and I wish you good health and many, many trips. Best regards Maggie (Małgorzata)

Tour: Pomerania, Gdynia, Poland
Date: Aug 5/15

Words cannot express the amazing ancestory tour we had with Malgorzata. It was magnificent in every way. She communicated with me to make certain she researched all the places we wished.Nothing was too much trouble for her and she contacted people ahead to be sure churches were open. She was cheerful, organized,extremely efficient and did everything in her power to ensure we had a tour to remember. Her driver Adrian was an additional bonus as his cheerful engaging attitude complemented that of Malgorzata.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Cheryl, Thank your very much for your pleasant words. Your group was so nice and your will to see the places of your ancestors so much appreciated and touching that my humble person was a little addition only. Please pass my best regards to all of you and I wish you have more time by next occassion to meet you and to see Poland again. Have a nice time in Europe.
