It is easy to read a book about history or watch a film or google the internet to find information, but when you are standing where that history took place and it is actually family members lives explained, then it is very confronting. It also makes you realize that those historical events have given us the lives that we have today and we are grateful for that. It was for me a very overwhelming experience and I really cannot find the words to accurately describe my time there. I really hope that I can come back one day soon.
We are concluding our two tours of legendary life-time experiences. This arrangement and the guides exceeded all expectations(...) Thanks so much for offering this kind of comprehensive regional and heritage experience. The experience of a lifetime will enriches during the coming decades and will be passed on as a legacy to our children and grandchildren as well as living relatives.
The tour was wonderful! It was an experience I will cherish always. Your planning was brilliant; transpired from a gift of extraordinary intelligence..I applaud you Aga, Zenon and Pawel! (Pawel's mother should be proud of him.). Thank you PolishOrigins for awakening from a dream to a reality!
What I learned about my family in the past few days is absolutely incredible and I cannot wait to get home and share all of it with my family! (...) There was something about leaving Poland and so many great experiences behind that really hit me. Although it is your job, know that I was greatly touched by your hard work and perseverance in finding all that information and so many relatives. Each day your effort gave the impression that you were searching for your own family and I am grateful.
Wow, we did it! My two sisters and I (all seniors) traveled to Poland after contacting PolishOrigins and combining the Galicia Tour with two extra days for genealogy research. It was the best thing we ever did together! The data and pictures we collected was immense(...) Zenon and his 'little elves' at PolishOrigins co-ordinated a trip that was a life altering event.
