    My family had the opportunity to spend incredible 8 days in Poland with Marta and we couldn't be happier! She was knowledgeable, personable, prompt, and just downright fun to be with! Marta showed us the sights of Warsaw, Krakow, Zakopane, and many other stops in between. Her help with a genealogy request in the village of Lusziwice was priceless! To have someone to translate and act on your behalf in a situation like this was a godsend! 

    The entire Foszcz family recommends Marta if you are planning a wonderous trip to Poland! You won't be disappointed!
