What people are saying about Łódź Province

Excellent because very complex open-minded sightseeing.

Ewa is a very well-prepared guide and did not get angry at all when I came up with a lot of questions. I also really enjoyed the fact that she proposed me several options of important points to see and let me chose what I was more interested in. I am more culture, religion and history oriented... She also was very kind to help me choose the best souvenirs for some friends I have at home depending on their tastes and knew what shop to recommend. Her English is very good and her personality is very pleasant, which makes the tour with her one of the nicest memories one could have. I highly recommend her for presentations of Lodz and consider her one of the most professional guides I met, yet also having an openness that makes her a presence everyone can enjoy. She is a good asset for your company, so I congratulate you for hiring her and I hope Lodz will always have many tourists as there are so many charming points to see!

Joanna kindly picked us up at our hotel and made several suggestions for our walking tour. We opted for the Scheibler/autumn theme and let ourselves be carried away to the heyday of cotton spinning and processing. From the very beginning it was an exciting walk through the history of Lodz, the attractively renovated spinning mill halls and the Autumn Villa with a beautiful park. The villa can be visited free of charge on Fridays and is absolutely worth seeing. Joanna's explanations give a complete picture of Lodz and the heyday of its development.

It was wonderful to walk through Lódz and get to know the history of the city. We gathered a lot of impressions and learned a lot from our companion Ewa. thank you for the beautiful day
