Both Pawel and Lucek were excellent guides and, through informal conversations, gave me insights to contemporary issues in Poland. Pawel was tireless in driving and keeping up a conversation about sights, issues, and history. Lucek gave me valuable cultural information on meeting people, including my relatives. Both were open to answering questions.
I was pleased with the research I was able to do, especially since the priest in my great-grandparents’ village (Dobra) seemed recalcitrant about offering help. Lucek patiently followed up with a lead the priest gave us and we found a young archivist who had put the parish records in order and who worked well with us.
I highly recommend this tour and will advertise it by word-of-mouth.
