      A very detailed and shocking tour through the Ghetto
      Very competent guide. She answered all of our questions and explained everything as detailed as possible. She guided us through the timeline of the Ghetto during WW2 while we stopped at different Statues and visited historical Walls and Infrastructure. Her knowledge of our language was very good

      Brilliant walk with Marzena.
      We had a fantastic two plus hours walk with Marzena. Her level of knowledge and conversational skills were hugely impressive. We came away with a much greater knowledge of Warsaw and indeed Poland 🇵🇱. Marzena is quite obviously passionate about her country. We asked loads of questions and nothing was too much trouble. We would highly recommend this walk and also Marzena 👌

      Praga Walking Tour in June 2023 - Excellent Experience
      The Praga tour with my guide Marzena was a truly memorable and authentic experience. During the walking tour, Marzena was highly informative and knowledgeable, and she provided me with numerous unique insights about the Praga district of Warsaw. I also ended up learning a lot about Warsaw and Poland in general.

      POLIN TOURS - THE BEST TOUR OF WARSAW
      Mary picked me up at the airport for a solo 5 hour tour of Warsaw, and then dropped me off at the airport after the tour. Her car was new and comfortable. Mary is extremely knowledgable about all parts of Warsaw, and spoke English fluently. I learned a lot about all parts of Warsaw and enjoyed walking and driving through all parts of the city.

      Our guide Marzena was very prompt with our hotel pick up, always responded promptly to my mails and gave us a very enlightening 3 hour tour of Warsaw showing us all the important sites. She even bought our train tickets and delivered them to our hotel and shared information about the city's history and amazing reconstruction.

      Our tour guide Wojtek was extremely knowledge about Warsaw and Polish history generally. His use of an iPad for showing images, including documents, was effective, and he always welcomed our questions. Indeed, Wojtek was so enthusiastic for the tour that he spent an extra our with our group. The Polin Tour with Wojtek was a great experience--highly recommended.

      Top Notch Guide with Genuine Caring - Goes the Extra Mile
      My wife and I travel extensively. As such, we have hired guides on every continent (aside from Antarctica) and Marzena is truly among the best we've encountered. Why? She is reachable and responsive leading up to your tour. She is flexible and works around your schedule to ensure your desired effects are being met. For us, we had both specific requests/requirements/desires that were all met and as important she facilitated other guides when she wasn't available. That last piece cannot be overlooked. We definitely wanted to visit Wolfsschanze and Mauerwald which is a 3.5-4 hour drive north of Warsaw. We wanted to pre-arrange a guide versus hoping to arrange for one on site and Marzena ensured we had a good one (Czeslaw Puciato). She spent quite a bit of time (hours) expediting and affecting multiple arrangements for us all without a complaint or demanding additional payment which she was surely owed. Regarding the benefit of her caring and helping prearrange a local guide, when we arrived at Wolfsschanze the road was torn up and the entrance where we intended to meet Czeslaw was blocked. While we found a way to access we weren't sure he would be there and we emailed Marzena who was "on it" and helped affect our meeting up. In closing, I realize the reason people hire guides is for expertise - again Marzena is top of the class. She is proficient in English and 100% easy to communicate with and carry on specific/detailed conversations. That's critical when you want to "deep dive" into subjects and issues you are experiencing. Bottom line - you cannot find a better overall experience in the guiding game than Marzena...I'm sure of it.

      Would give this a 6-star rating if I could
      We arranged Marzena of Polin Tours to give us two private tours--a tour of the Treblinka Extermination Camp (about a 90-minute drive from Warsaw) and a walking tour of the Jewish sites of Warsaw another day. (Early October 2018) She was an excellent guide. I highly recommend her!! She picked us up at our apartment and drove us to Treblinka, explaining the history and answering our questions. Once on site, she walked through the small museum with us, pointing out various items. Then she walked with us to the adjacent site of the camp, explaining the symbolism of the memorials and pointing out things we never would have seen/noticed on our own. It was at our relaxed pace, and there were fewer than a dozen tourists on site, so we felt like we had the place to ourselves. She never rushed us, let us take our time to ask questions and reflect on what we were seeing. It was about a 7-hour day with her. We asked her about her time growing up under Communist rule and she answered frankly about what it was like--all fascinating to us. Another day she provided us with a four-hour driving/walking tour of the Jewish historic sites in Warsaw. We made several stops to see and go inside a "hidden synagogue"; see portions of the Ghetto Wall; visit an historic area where there was a Ghetto footbridge over the street; visit sites where there used to be vibrant Jewish neighborhoods; and more. Again, all at a relaxed pace. She even had a binder with photos to show us what specific sites looked like then to compare to now.

    I booked this tour with Marzena (Mary) for myself, my 19 year old daughter and my 12 and 13 year olds. It was a three hour walking tour that hit all of the highlights of the Warsaw ghetto. Mary was INCREDIBLE! She's a veritable fount of knowledge about the historical and social aspects of this area, and she's an entertaining and engaging guide. It's heavy content for younger kids, but she did a great job of balancing the information for everyone on the tour. The price is reasonable and you get to really see some incredible sites and learn about the history of the ghetto. Highly recommend!!

    A one-on-one experience that really enhanced my knowledge of the city and the people who were impacted by walking the same streets they did. My guide, Mary, was able to help explain the landscape of the city both in its current state and what it was like both before and during WW2. There is so much history in this vibrant city, and this tour helped highlight a tragic part of history but one I felt was vital to understanding its complicated history. So many things I would have missed had I not had her experience at my side!

    Mary our guide was superb, extremely knowledgeable and responsive in replying to our questions as well as being really friendly and personable. The tour itself was a great balance of visiting sites and learning about the history behind them, exactly what we were hoping for. It was great to be in a very small group too to get the most out of the experience.

    Our guide Maria gave us an excellent tour through the Warszawa ghetto. Among our group were teachers of history and well informed people of polish and german history, but we were all surprised of how Marias fabulous knowledge could give us a deep insight into the history of the ghetto. I could recommend the tour for all who want to know more about the Warszawa ghetto with all the remaining details, especially to germans, because of Marias astonishing language skills!

    Marzena is an incredible tour guide and she is passionate about he history of the Warsaw Ghetto and the Ghetto Uprising. I was moved to tears several times because her explanations are so vivid and she loves the subject matter. The tour takes you to different important points of the Ghetto - so that you not only get a powerful sense of the history but you get a sense of how LARGE the ghetto was. There was so much I didn't know about it - and Mazena was able to answer all my questions - not only about history but about Warsaw now. Her sensitivity and her ability to give rich context to the events of the Ghetto Uprising made this tour the best tour I've taken in my month of traveling!

    Polin Tours’ tour of the Warsaw Jewish Ghetto was outstanding. Mary was extremely knowledgeable, and able to invite and respond well to our questions. She had obviously acquired an empathetic sense of the awful things that happened in WW II, but also provided historical perspective on a much broader context too. Strongly recommend her.

    This tour was amazing, our tour guide Mary was super knowledgeable able to recall names, dates, locations, the history of Poland and the way things worked. We got to see all of the preserved parts of the Ghettos around Poland. Its surreal to see history from the past and the darkness now among the current modern age. Highly recommend.

    I was told from another person that there wasn’t much left of the Warsaw ghetto and I quickly found out that the opposite is true. Everywhere we went, there was something to see and learn. Our guide was very informative and patient with our curiosity. There was no way we would have seen these things on our own
