“If you want to experience Poland Jolanta Szymczyk is just the person to help you. Jola is passionate about the country of her birth and is keen to help others to know about its culture, people, food and diversity. If you join a tour with her she asks for information about you and YOUR interests. She uses that information to plan your adventure in Poland, using her knowledge and the vast network of local artisans who are enthusiastic to share their knowledge of Poland and the unique experiences they can share. Whatever the season, the sights to see, the foods to taste and the places to visit are endless, and Jola makes sure that every moment counts! Her local knowledge is substantial and generously shared with her guests highlighting what is so special about Poland . It may be a lesson in making and tasting pierogi, creating linen products from flax or learning about the origin of amber and the ways it is used in jewellery. The places visited are a diverse spread of landscape and flavours. Her ability to speak the language is a bonus! Thank you Jola for sharing your amazing country with me.
