Here I am - Renata, ready to guide you in Warsaw and in the Mazovia region, where I was born, brought up, studied literature and history at Warsaw University and have worked - for a certain time as a journalist, from time to time as a translator of literature (mainly novels), but most of the time as a tourist guide. Working as a guide is my greatest love, because I love people (which is mutual!) and I love my country.

Option 1: Jewish Heritage Tour in Warsaw.

This half-day tour focuses on visiting places connected with the Jewish presence in Poland for about ten centuries. In Warsaw you can see: the still functioning Jewish cemetery; Nozyk Synagogue which survived the last war; the Jewish Historical Institute with its small museum and archives; a remaining part of the ghetto wall; Umschlagplatz memorial marking the place of the station from which Jews were deported to the death camp in Treblinka during WWII; Rappaport monument dedicated to the heroes of ghetto and recently constructed Museum of the History of Polish Jews. Take advantage of having the guide who has worked for March of the Living since it started to be organized, and the author of Holocaust survivors published stories. Note: It is recommended to combine Warsaw city tour in the morning and Jewish heritage tour in the afternoon.

Option 2: Warsaw with Wilanow Palace or Royal Castle.

Warsaw is a green and clean town, so you will be taken to Lazienki Park (18th century) where you can stroll and admire palaces and pavilions hidden in thick greenery. Drive along Royal Route, almost completely rebuilt after WWII to its previous historical design. Walk in Warsaw Old Town, also rebuilt to its historical style and put on the UNESCO cultural heritage list as the only place not original but reconstructed. See the house where Madame Curie was born, and where Chopin lived. We will also visit what was once the ghetto area. With me you will see great contrasts of pre-war Warsaw, districts kept in socialistic-realistic style and recently constructed modern downtown called sometimes Warsaw Manhattan. After Warsaw city tour and after lunch time we will drive to the suburbs of Warsaw to visit the interior of Wilanow Palace built in the 17th century by king Sobieski who defeated Turks in the battle of Vienna. Later belonging to aristocrat families, the palace became one of the very first museums in Poland. This splendid Baroque palace (often called Polish Versailles) survived all wars, so you can still see its original interiors and stroll in its charming park in English and Italian style. Instead of visiting the Palace you have the option to visit Royal Castle, which although rebuilt in '70, shows a lot of miraculously saved original paintings, furniture and objects of art. This is where Polish kings lived, where sessions of Parliament took place, and where now you can see Rembrandt's paintings and other precious masterpieces.

Option 3: Chopin's Country.

While visiting Poland you must see the places connected with Frederic Chopin, great Polish pianist and composer. His birthplace is exceptionally charming; in the village of Zelazowa Wola situated 55 km outside Warsaw, a lovely manor house later turned into a museum was his first home. After strolling in a small lovely park we will drive to Brochow to visit the unique (being stronghold and shrine at the same time) church where Frederic was baptized and his parents were married. Return to Warsaw along country road to see typical Polish villages with old wooden houses and stork nests. On Sundays (May to September) there is the opportunity to listen to open air piano recitals performed by some of Poland's best pianists. If your visit comes on another day you can book the evening piano recital in one of the palaces in Warsaw (additional price 130 zlotys). Note: It is recommended to combine both tours: city tour of Warsaw in the morning, and in the afternoon Chopin's country tour.

Option 4: Warsaw City Tour.

See the highlights of Warsaw during a 4 hours tour - with me, by car and walking. Warsaw is a green and clean town, so you will be taken to Lazienki Park (18th century) where you can stroll and admire palaces and pavilions hidden in thick greenery. Drive along Royal Route, almost completely rebuilt after WWII to its previous historical design. Walk in Warsaw Old Town, also rebuilt to its previous style, and put on the UNESCO cultural heritage list as the only place not original but reconstructed. See the house where Madame Curie was born, and where Chopin lived. We will also visit what was once the ghetto area.With me you will see great contrasts of pre-war Warsaw, districts kept in socialistic-realistic style and recently constructed modern downtown called sometimes Warsaw Manhattan. It is private tour guide service, walking and driving.
