Jacek is a wonderful guide and company. He picked my group up on time and was patient throughout the trip. He provided a grounded and contextualized history and answered the many questions we had about Treblinka and beyond. The drive was safe a comfortable. We enjoyed the conversation with Jacek tremendously. Treblinka was a difficult experience - coming face to face with pure racism and evil in the past - reminds us of the harrowing wars/conflicts/genocides of the present. Jacek was respectful and let us take in the experience the way we needed to. Overall, we would not hesitate to be accompanied by Jacek on any Polish excursion.

Our guide Marcin was very knowledgable with everything to do with Treblinka Death Camp as well as answering all our questions. It was a very emotional day. Marcin did not rush us and we had as much time as we needed to absorb the horror that had taken place in this now peaceful area. We very much enjoyed Marcin’s company on the drive to and from Treblinka and he was even gracious enough to drop us off at the fragments of the Ghetto wall that we had expressed to him we’d very much like to see on our return to Warsaw.

Thank you very much for such a great tour. It was a truly enriching and comfortable experience. We would definitely do your services again.

Martin was just fantastic. He was knowledgeable, considerate, and a great host!

It was great and Jacek did an amazing job explaining the history.
