Jolanta is an incredible guide who made our trip to Poland so memorable and special! In October 2019, my father and I spent 8 days in Poland to visit our family's tiny village and explore our family heritage. Jolanta planned an incredible trip that made every moment fascinating and meaningful. Jolanta is very knowledgeable about history and the world, having traveled extensively. She guided us through Warsaw, which was a fascinating city, and also escorted us to locations in Eastern Poland we had never heard of which were central to Jewish history. When we visited the small village our family emigrated from, Jolanta tirelessly worked to put us in touch with the local amateur historian who knew the most about Jewish life there in the early 20th century. She also arranged a meeting with the town's mayor, who greeted us with refreshments and gift bags of local products. If you are traveling to Eastern Europe, I highly recommend Jolanta as your guide.

Jolanta was our guide for a week long Jewish history/Holocaust trip through Poland. She was absolutely fantastic. She thoughtfully organized an amazing, informational and thorough journey, which even interested our teenage daughter. She is very knowledgeable about Poland, its history, people and culture. And, she is so fun to be with. She took us not only to major tourist places, but also to interesting places off the beaten track. For example, she took us to a lesser known art gallery which featured an exhibit by her daughter and introduced us to a friend of hers, who is a progressive rabbi in Krakow, who is working to restore a synagogue destroyed in the war. She arranged for private tours with fantastic guides at Auschwitz and Majdanek, which greatly enhanced our experience at those places. She continually went out of her way to enhance our trip and make it just right. We can’t imagine touring Poland with anyone other than Jolanta.

After some research we hired Jolanta for 2 days and were pleased with the selection. Hiring a private guide in Krakow proved to be a difficult task, as most guide had “days off,” would not respond or refused to promise a specific guide. Jolanta said she does not do many winter tours, so maybe the time of year makes hiring guides a challenge. Her price was higher than other quotes we got, but her availability ended up making the choice easy. Planning tours of Krakow was the most difficult location I have ever planned and Jolanta was helpful in the pretrip process, as schedules are very odd and closures are seemingly random. Jolanta demonstrated why we hire private guides, as she was able to get us into some private venues and was a great advocate when interacting with local people. Her ability to get one of our group to the bugle tower in St. Mary’s was the highlight of his trip. If you hire Jolanta, I suggest having clear expectations about times and services, so there is no miscommunication. Our group was aged 50s/60 and Jolanta was a good fit for our pace. She was a good sport and we appreciate her effort.

Jolanta was an excellent guide, both knowledgeable and personable. She made sure that we were able to see everything that interested us and, as we requested, even arranged a pierogi making class for us where we met her mother! Her services were thoughtful and personal, as if she weren't doing it as a job, but as someone who wanted us to leave with a better understanding of what we saw in Poland. We would recommend her services to anyone who wants an exceptional guide in Krakow.
