Julia SeymourUnited States
My private Jewish tour with Halina was everything I could have asked for and more. She is very knowledgable about Polish and Jewish history, as well their impact on modern times. She was accommodating to my pace and emotions. She offers so much helpful information and asked me good questions to provoke my thought processes. Her English is excellent and she was very helpful to this non-Polish speaker. If I had more time, I'd do another tour with her because I'd learn so much. Thank you, Halina!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank You Julia, it's been a pleasure to host you in Warsaw. I loved seeing your emotions which the story of Polish Jews elicited. It's good to know that my questions provoked thinking since I love to challenge my tourists' beliefs:) Hope your visit to Cracow and Sopot will also be so rewarding:)

Gail BuckleyUnited States
The tour with Halina was one of the highlights of our whole trip to eastern Europe. We learned so much from her and she was so generous with her time. The 4 of us enjoyed having lunch with her and experiencing all kinds of dumplings. Walking was an issue with one of us and she never rushed us. Especially loved walking through the Jewish cemetery with Halina having so many stories to share with us. Could have spent hours there.
Tamar FernandezUnited States
Halina is knowledgeable about the history of her city. She provided us with a custom made tour of Warsaw to include both the Jewish and Polish history of the city. We enjoyed ourselves and her company, and came away with a wealth of information and appreciation on Warsaw. Would highly recommend her.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Tamar and James. It was really a great pleasure to have this walk with you and so interesting conversations. Really enjoyable and inspiring day.

William M.United States
Halina structured this tour to accommodate our interests. She did a fantastic job of meeting our requests. It involved a combination of the memorials to the ghetto uprising and the later 1944 uprising. Sobering experience, but very worth seeing. Everything from the Warsaw Uprising museum to the new memorial building to Holocaust victims and remnants of the ghetto wall. Halina did a very thoughtful and valuable tour
