Marta led a walking tour for our American students who were studying in Warsaw. Her tours have the right balance between history, culture, and interesting facts. And her English is excellent! We recommend her tours.”

Dear Marta, Thank you so much for your time while we were in Warsaw. You really made our stay in Warsaw a very memorable and enjoyable. We especially appreciated your consideration and time with our children. Warsaw was the highlight of their trip and this is because of you.
So thanks again, we hope to visit Warsaw and other destination in Poland again in the future.

Dear Marta, we want to thank you so much for our time with you. We had such a big and meaningful experience in Poland and you were an important part in it. We enjoyed your personality, your knowledge and your gentleness and patience for our needs at this visit. Warsaw was for us surprise, we could understand better Poland, Polish people, Polish families and their attitudes to the Jewish history with your help and openness. We thank you for your advice and for your help to explore our families roots in Czestachowa and Sanok and we were so lucky to be helped by you getting the information about Kudowa. Thank you again.

Dear Marta, we returned home yesterday full with the good impresions that we gathered during our last visit in Poland. We did all the activities that we planned, and thanks to you we did everything more efficiently,

Dear Marta, our trip to Poland is still very much with us. It was such an emotional and meaningful experience. And of course, your guiding, and involvement and the personal interest you took in our visit was so very helpful. The visit gave me a real sense of our roots (even if mine were in the Ukraine), and curiosity to continue to explore.

Hi Marta, Thank you so much for the tour you gave us! We all, including kids, enjoyed it very much!

We stayed in Warsaw for a few days last year and Marta was our guide. She speaks excellent English and has an extensive local knowledge of the city. I researched the various options on the Internet and I came across Marta’s website via Google. My communications with her were excellent and she replied to all e mail promptly. You can take either the standard tours she offers or ask Marta to modify to suit your special interests or fitness level. We arranged to meet Marta in the lobby of our Hotel – Le Méridien Bristol – and she was there on time ready and waiting for us. She was extremely pleasant, informative, had a great personality and was great company. She organized a wonderful day for us and her help and advice was invaluable during our stay. We were very aware that we got a lot more out of our visit to Warsaw than if we had simply wandered about on our own – her skillfully presented combination of historical facts and entertaining stories about the city and its inhabitants really brought Warsaw to life for us. Her vitality and energy was admirable as she leads us on a long walk through the main wonderful places in Warsaw. However, don’t worry about the walking too much as the local trams and buses were excellent (and good value) and we successfully navigated several of these during our route through the city. She gave us a wonderful experience and I would highly recommend Marta to anyone visiting Warsaw who is not familiar with the area. She was attentive to our questions all day long and had plenty of suggestions about what to do with our time in Warsaw.

Last May I visited Warsaw with the purpose of the trip to tour the Warsaw Ghetto and Jewish sections and visit Majdanek Concentration Camp. I found Marta online and had emailed her to set up the tour. All of the arrangements were made by email. I arrived in Warsaw on Sunday and set the Warsaw tour for Monday and the visit to Majdanek for Tuesday as I was returning to the USA on Wednesday. Marta met me Monday morning at my hotel right on time and conducted a wonderful tour of the Warsaw Ghetto and the Jewish sections of the city. She is very knowledgeable of the history and knows where all of the monuments and areas are. She is also very accommodating if there was something that I wanted to see or did not want to see. The tour was not rushed and took most of the day. On Tuesday Marta drove me to Lublin to visit the camp and though not part of the arrangements even gave me a tour of Lublin after the concentration camp visit. I was very happy with her services, she is knowledgeable, accommodating and did a great job, I highly recommend her.

Dear Marta, we liked very much the tour with you, although it was not easy for us.
I’m happy you could do it, many thanks and all the best,

Hi Marta, just a short belated note to say many thanks to you for your excellent tour – it was most enjoyable and you are such a knowledgeable guide!

When we visited Poland recently we had as our tour guide over the time we were there Marta Rzeznik. We were so happy we had chosen Marta because her grasp of the English language and her knowledge of the history of Poland was perfect. From the time we landed at the airport until the time we departed from Poland Marta was there. She had helped us plan a unique historical tour of the former Nazi Death Camps at my request. But she also added a lot more to the tour which made our visit both unique and special. We went to the actual ghetto areas were the Jews were gathered in Krakow (we saw Schindler’s factory gate), and also saw the former ghetto area in Lodz, and in Lublin. Marta took us up to what was called the Wolfs Lair in Prussia (North East Poland) from where Hitler commanded his eastern forces. The places we visited are not commonly on the tourist track, but because of Marta’s knowledge of Poland (being a native Pole herself), and because of her expertise in the tourist industry, all of these things which otherwise may have been out of our reach became accessible because of Marta. Marta organized everything for us including travel, hotel stays and sightseeing. I fully recommend Marta Rzeznik as your tour guide. You will find her competent, friendly, honest, very fairly priced, and you will want to recommend her to others.

At our recent trip to Warsaw we had the privilege to hire Marta for two days. On the first day she took us on a walking tour around the historical Warsaw. This was interesting, fun and a good way to get to know your way around The Old Town. On the second day Marta had ar-ranged tour/competition that taught us about Poland during the communist period. This tour were brilliant. We had so much fun running around parts of Warsaw solving small quests. –At the same time, we actually learned a lot about communist Poland, Poland today and the different temper of the polish people. At the end we actually hired Marta for yet another day to guide us through The Wilanow Palace.
Marta knows her history and posses a lot of humor. The last thing can be quite helpful when you have to guide six men around Warsaw.
