Fantastic Tour of Poland Jolanta is an incredible guide who made our trip to Poland so memorable and special! In October 2019, my father and I spent 8 days in Poland to visit our family's tiny village and explore our family heritage. Jolanta planned an incredible trip that made every moment fascinating and meaningful. Jolanta is very knowledgeable about history and the world, having traveled extensively. She guided us through Warsaw, which was a fascinating city, and also escorted us to locations in Eastern Poland we had never heard of which were central to Jewish history. When we visited the small village our family emigrated from, Jolanta tirelessly worked to put us in touch with the local amateur historian who knew the most about Jewish life there in the early 20th century. She also arranged a meeting with the town's mayor, who greeted us with refreshments and gift bags of local products. If you are traveling to Eastern Europe, I highly recommend Jolanta as your guide.

Fantastic guide Jolanta was our guide for a week long Jewish history/Holocaust trip through Poland. She was absolutely fantastic. She thoughtfully organized an amazing, informational and thorough journey, which even interested our teenage daughter. She is very knowledgeable about Poland, its history, people and culture. And, she is so fun to be with. She took us not only to major tourist places, but also to interesting places off the beaten track. For example, she took us to a lesser known art gallery which featured an exhibit by her daughter and introduced us to a friend of hers, who is a progressive rabbi in Krakow, who is working to restore a synagogue destroyed in the war. She arranged for private tours with fantastic guides at Auschwitz and Majdanek, which greatly enhanced our experience at those places. She continually went out of her way to enhance our trip and make it just right. We can’t imagine touring Poland with anyone other than Jolanta.
Salt mine Very interesting tour with Jolanta. Much to learn. Enjoyed it very much The trip out to the location was also very enjoyable

Amazing 5 Star Private Tour Guide & Local Friend! First time to Poland traveling as a solo female and Jolanta is like a local friend who made me feel safe/comfortable. She had her driver pick me up at the airport in a nice Mercedes and greeted me at my hotel.
 Jolanta is friendly, fun, knowledgeable and speaks perfect English - she can create a customized itinerary based on your interest like Auschwitz-Birkenau & Salt Mines, Zakopane Town, Slovakia. I did a 4hour Old Town walking tour which included Warwel Castle, Main Square, Kazimierz Jewish District and a delicious lunch tasting authentic Polish food/wine. Jolanta is an amazing iPhone photographer who took Instagram worthy photos - yay no need for a selfie stick! Thank you again for your positive energy and creating special memories along with beautiful photos that will last forever! Your hospitality is sincerely appreciated!

The tour was fairly priced compared to other companies but Jolanta provides a 5 Star authentic experience that is priceless. 
Take this opportunity to book her as your private tour guide today!
The Very BEST I spent two weeks in Krakow and I contacted Jolanta of European Legacy Tours at the last minute when my plans changed to set up a tour of Krakow and Zalipie. If I could give the time I spent with Jolanta 10 stars, I would!! Being a female traveling solo, meeting Jolanta was like spending time with a good friend. She was so helpful in every matter, large and small, which was very comforting, and she was so personable, I felt very at home in her company. She made my trip so special, using her many local connections to absolutely amaze me! I was in Poland for the Jewish Culture Festival and upon hearing this, Jolanta made immediate arrangements to accompany me through the Jewish quarter of the city, introducing me to restaurant and hotel owners who provided beautiful views from their rooftops and delicious meals which I would never have experienced without her. She even called a local Rabbi to give me a tour of a synagogue that is being refurbished and to familiarize me with Jewish happenings in Krakow. These are the unique types of opportunities that one couldn’t imagine being treated to until you meet Jolanta! Visiting the painted village of Zalipie was just the same - every detail was seen to, from transportation, to morning coffee, to an explanation of local customs which was very handy to a side trip to a synagogue in the area which I didn’t even know existed until Jolanta told me about it. Shopping for lunch in the village market was a little highlight that added to the day. Although my time was limited to Krakow and Zalipie, my understanding is that European Legacy Tours organizes trips all around Eastern Europe. I am already in the process of planning another tour with Jolanta. I went to Poland alone and came back with an invaluable tour guide as a new friend! Thank you for all the precious memories! I can not recommend them highly enough!
The great beauty of Cracow and its surrounding The organization of the tours has been simply perfect! The guides were very knowledgable and nice. There's so much to experience in Cracow!

A Great Guide in Krakow Jolanta was an excellent guide, both knowledgeable and personable. She made sure that we were able to see everything that interested us and, as we requested, even arranged a pierogi making class for us where we met her mother! Her services were thoughtful and personal, as if she weren't doing it as a job, but as someone who wanted us to leave with a better understanding of what we saw in Poland. We would recommend her services to anyone who wants an exceptional guide in Krakow.

Visit to Krakow Ghetto and Auschwitz Jola managed to personalise the trip for us and not a moment was wasted between sights. It was of course a very emotional tour but one dealt with with dignity and knowledge by her which made it all the more fascinating.

A Truly Complete Tour We went on a tour of Central Europe with Jolanta in September and we could not have been more pleased with our experience. The sites we visited, the hotels and the food were all amazing. Just as important was the effort Jolanta put into ensuring that everything went smoothly. Her attention to detail was impressive. We especially liked the surprises she planned as we made our way through the various cities. Jolanta deserves special credit for making our trip so memorable. I only wish we could give her a sixth star.

Long day but well worth it Our driver Krzysztof arrived on time organised tickets into salt mine for 4 of us on the bus we travelled with with an Italian couple we Australians my mother and I after 2.5 hours on a guided English tour we made our way to lunch sat down the Italians finished their Italian tour shortly after and joined us. We finished early and the four of us decided to call the driver to pick up us earlier as it was an hour and half to Auschwitz. The driver then picked us up about 40 mins before we agreed and we were able to take the drive. He got us joined up again with another company for our tour in English in Auschwitz there is two parts to that trip. We arrived back at hotel close to 9pm. Driver was always there ready and was helpful. I’m glad the hotel booked this option for us much better option especially on a long day tour this driver and company definitely gets the 5 star review from me
