Mike Mierzwa (Genealogy Tour)

Zbigniew our guide for the first 10 days was absolutely phenomenal. I can’t give him high enough praise. The way he interacted with us, his personality and his demeanor fit us perfectly. His passion and knowledge of genealogical records in Poland amazed me. I had the opportunity numerous times to see him work, and as my wife commented “his eyes lit up when the books were opened”.

When he is speaking with people, he has a gift to be able to get them to help with whatever we were inquiring about, and he is obviously explaining the situation so well that they are jumping to try to help.

When we needed a translator, for our conversations between my Polish cousins that did not speak English he was invaluable. He is definitely a valuable asset to your company, and I would highly recommend him to anyone who would be taking a tour with you.

Pawel was guide for Sandomierz, Tarnow and parts of our Kraków tour. He impressed me the minute I met him at my cousin’s home in Pysznica. We were very impressed with his knowledge of Sandomierz and of the tour he gave us. He also took us on our tour of Tarnow, and again he had an expert knowledge of the city. When we went to Czestochowa, Pawel made it a great trip, on our way back he took us on a tour of some old castles, which we absolutely loved.

Overall our entire experience with Pawel was a positive one, and I would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a guide. He has a very friendly demeanor about him and is very easy to get along with.

The guide we had in Torun, Pawel was also very knowledgeable. I wish I could go into detail of our tour, but we were overwhelmed by all the information that he shared with us. That is not a bad thing as that is exactly what I was looking for. I wanted to know as much as possible about the city and its history and he knew it very well. He also took us to a few places that we did not know about. Overall our experience with Paul was a very positive one and I would definitely recommend him to anyone touring Poland.

I really don’t have any suggestions or remarks on how to improve my tour. It was exactly the experience that I was looking for!

Thank you to all of you for everything that you did for us to make our trip an amazing and unforgettable experience. We are already discussing coming back to Poland and going to Slovakia and Germany to locate my wife’s family. When we need a guiding service we know where to go, PolishOrigins.

“I just got back two weeks ago from a three-week custom tour of Poland with Polishorigins! Zenon and company are EXCELLENT!
I’d been to Poland before and never seen as much and experienced as much as I did with PO.
Their guides know about hidden places most people don’t know about or miss. It was an amazing experience.

If you’re looking for genealogy help, they are definitely the way to go. If you want to find existing family, like I did, they were like bloodhounds.

When I go back, PO will be part of my tour!”
