 "I wanted to let the folks at PGSA know what a wonderful tour Iwona gave us; she patiently, even intrepidly, drove us into remote areas so we could experience our ancestors' homeland.  She was very helpful with details about the areas, and with finding comfortable hotels to stay at.  We did not find living relatives (we did not really expect to); however, given that she knew I was interested in knowing how my ancestors lived in the 19th century, she took us to the fabulous Ethnographic Park in Olsztynek.  I should also note that we hired a driver named Max in Warsaw who was suggested by Iwona; he drove us to Plock, where we met Iwona.  It was a pleasure to work with him, too.  Ultimately, Iwona was central to helping us have a fulfilling experience in Poland.  I would be very happy to recommend them both to others, and to communicate with anyone interested in working with them." from Mary Louise Hill - USA Jun 2018

"WARSAW!    An excellent tour guide.
