I travelled to Poland with my family. We were a total of six, including an 86 year old holocaust survivor and two 17 year old grandchildren. Sadly I was separated from my luggage on arrival to Warsaw, fortunately Hubert took time out from our tour to save the day. He not only gave an excellent tour of Jewish sites, but he really listened to our needs and changed the tour accordingly. He helped me shop for necessary items lost in my luggage, and to deal with the train clerks so that we could reschedule one of our train trips. Hubert is a great driver, he knows the city and the restaurants. He was able to make restaurant reservations in advance, and he is very personable. I recommend him highly.

My husband and I recently returned from an 11 day trip to Poland, 5 of which were spent in Warsaw. Hubert Pawlik was our local guide for 3 days. I retained Hubert prior to our trip based upon glowing recommendations found on Tripadvisor. Those reviews did not overstate his performance. We did not regret our choice.

On day 1, Hubert introduced us to the gems of Warsaw. We visited eye popping churches, historically significant monuments, exquisite gardens. Day 2 was a comprehensive tour of Jewish Warsaw, highlighting Jewish community life prior to and inclusive of WWII.

Hubert was much more than a tour guide. He was our own private concierge. He drove us to the train station, assisted with the purchase of tickets, directed us to the appropriate platform for boarding and helped us carry our luggage. What impressed me the most, however, was the sensitivity and respect Hubert displayed by wearing a yarmulke (skullcap) when entering Jewish holy sites. Hubert is not Jewish and therefore not required to comply with Jewish law, yet, he cares enough to honor our tradition with this customary act. A mensch, for sure!

Without hesitation, I would recommend Hubert Pawlik to anyone traveling to Warsaw. I intend to hire him again if and when I return to that glorious city.

I can only saw great things for my experience with Hubert. He customized a tour for my friend and I according to what we wanted to see. He customized the pace of the tour to accomodate my friend that had injured her back.

He had a wide knowledge of history. He had visual aids to explain more of the historical sites.

He provided comfortable travel accomodations and water for proper hydration throughout the day.

Overall, it was just a great experience. I have more friends visiting and will definitely employ his services again!

What a fabulous guide! Hubert was spectacular! His tour was very engaging and took us to a wide variety of Jewish sights in Warsaw. He was very patient and allowed us prolonged time to spend in places where we wanted to see more. He was very helpful in assisting me to get in and out of his van. We rode, walked, looked, and talked about all of the sights. He has a super amount of knowledge about each Jewish sight. He appeared to know people at each spot where we stopped which made us feel good to know he knew the information and he had been to each of these places many times. It was a delight spending time with him.

It was my last day in Warsaw before heading back to NYC, and I really wanted to get a more in depth sense of the history and the little seen places in Warsaw. I stumbled upon Hubert, noticed his great reviews, and luckily he was available for a private tour on Monday morning. I told Hubert that I was interested in the Jewish Ghetto, as well as the Communist era in Warsaw. Hubert took me to locations I would never find on my own, from the built over tracks in the Warsaw Ghetto, to the site of the old temple, and the intact apartment gardens in the Praga district, I can't wait to go back to Warsaw with my fiance and have another specialized tour! The amount of history and stories that Hubert can relate is truly insightful and educational, and I am so glad I found him!
