Our guide Maria is a warm and pleasant individual and she is very knowledgeable on the history of Treblinka. Prior to departing Warsaw the tour started with visiting several key locations of the Warsaw Ghetto. During the drive to Treblinka Maria covered a great deal of the history leading up to the establishment of the camp and this made the physical tour of the camp more meaningful. In the past we have visited a number of the Nazi camps and Maria is by far the best guide that we have ever had. Outstanding! We highly recommend Maria. Dale and Andrea Vancouver, Canada
