I spent two half days touring Warsaw with Marta as my guide. She is an exceptional guide, very friendly, knowledgeable and knows her way around Warsaw. Especially her knowledge of ( Jewish ) history was very comprehensive. I greatly enjoyed the two days we spent together and highly recommend her as a guide for Warsaw

When I did visit Warsaw for the first time I booked Marta as my private guide for a four hour guided city tour. She picked me up at my hotel in Praga and we started our tour just by driving through the city and I got some insights of the size/width of streets and the structure of the town rebuilt after WWII. After this driving experience she stopped close to Old Town and we walked though this quarter. She showed my the Royal Palace, explained why it has been rebuilt this way, etc. I experienced Warsaw in a way that I must say: The money I've spent for her service was a good investment.

We had assigned Marta with the challenging task of revealing to us the beauty and the fascinations of Warsaw in just two days. Not only she accomplished to do that but she also got us acquainted with the essence of Polish mentality, culture and history. She perfectly tailored our tour so that it was exactly what we had asked for but also included some pleasant surprises, like visiting the inside of the iconic Bristol Hotel located on the historic Royal Route and the E. Wedel Chocolate Lounge. Marta was extremely knowledgeable and was always able to answer our questions without any hesitation and in such a way that showed her love and appreciation for Warsaw and Poland. We got a great overview of the city with very interesting commentary and personalized recommendations on what to see and do for the rest of our stay. Marta is not a guide who simply delivers a routine tour experience but she is more of a longtime friend who wants to show you around her city and make you get the most out of it.

If you want a personal, in-depth look into Polish history and culture, look no further than Marta! I did the tour of Treblinka and Wolf's Lair, and as a solo traveler, I was initially nervous to be alone with a tour guide for almost half my day. However, Marta was so kind and accommodating. Aside from the tours themselves, I learned more about Polish history and culture, Soviet occupation, WWII, Jewish history, etc. during our car ride than I would've from any class, book, or museum. Please pick her brain, she seriously is an encyclopedia of knowledge, I loved talking to her. She was very flexible with my tour - we ended up starting a bit after noon and ending a bit before midnight (normally she'll start this tour in the morning). I recommend bringing some snacks and water, but you can also stop at gas stations. Wolf's Lair was fantastic, bring mosquito repellant. And I loved my experience at Treblinka more than I did my tour of Auschwitz. Although Treblinka was torn down in the war's final months, the memorial erected there is powerful and deserves a visit for those interested in Nazi death camps. I recommend visiting at dusk too. The setting sun created an ideal atmosphere and there were no people there to distract from reflection. I think combining both tours was the way to go too. I would not have felt that driving so far to do just one would have been a very productive day, but I'm so thankful to have seen both. Marta's tour was definitely a highlight of my trip! I recommend her to all history-buff tourists.
