His preparation for our tour was thorough and relevant. I strongly encourage others to work with genealogytour.com […]. It was a moving experience and exceeded my expectations.”

Marta was very helpful and patient while we composed as much information as I could gather regarding my grandfather’s roots in Poland. I would love to have gone even further than I did and maybe trace siblings, aunts etc but possibly in the future. I highly recommend you ask for help in tracing polish history as so much of our past is in their hands now and any, little or a lot is very valuable. Thank you Marta for everything

Tom was knowledgeable, efficient and accurate in helping me break through a wall I had hit trying to research my Polish genealogy. He was a pleasure to work with, responded very quickly, followed up with the research very quickly, and he taught me some things about time period and language that I could not have done without his help. I will be using this service again when I need translations or additional research. Thanks, Tom!

“Genealogy Tour does a great job connecting to these learnings for me and I like connecting with the heritage of the Country. The museums in Poland are gems and the use of local tour guides makes these connections real. I can think of many favorite visits, the Underground in Krakow, the Pope JP2 early life in a small village …”

“We are so glad you asked for comment on the tour. We thoroughly enjoyed it. We were mainly on this tour to see Gdansk and it proved to be wonderful. The guide (whose name I forgot) was really good. The Solidarity museum was exceptional, wish we could have stayed there longer.”

“The Prussian Circle Tour with Adam and my fellow travelers were the perfect travel scenario, especially for my first visit to Poland and with my love of genealogy! The small group, personalization, the focus on family history and history of the area, as well as the cultural experiences made for a fabulous trip.”

“Almost 3 years passed since our last visit. But in July and early August of 2019, my wife and I returned with five family members: my sister Mary, my daughter Amy and her 2 children and my cousin Laura. As during 2016, this entire trip was something special. Not only we revisit all the family members as before but we added Budapest to our visit and tour itinerary.”

‘I had been wanting to travel to Poland to trace my ancestors for quite some time but I was not sure how to go about it. After I found Tomasz Szymkowiak online it all became very simple. (…) I have traveled to Europe before, but never before have I felt so at home in a country I had never before been to. This is Tom’s gift, and I highly recommend him to everyone. It is a once in a lifetime experience!’

“The Genealogy Tour Company and Adam Zalewski are wonderful people to work with. Adam found my living relatives of my grandfather, who immigrated from Poland to America in approximately 1912. He found them through 100 years old letters found in my grandfather’s papers. In summer 2017, I planned a trip to Poland to meet with my new found family.”

“I have to thank Tom Szymkowiak the genealogical researcher and guide who led us on the tour of the towns, villages and cities where the Stolz and Trinkler families lived as far back as the late 1700s. Tomasz did the bulk of the research that helped uncover the history of the Stolz and Trinkler families in what was at that time the Austria Hungary Empire going back to the 1770s or 1780s and is now western Ukraine.”

I have a personal connection here because we went to Jarosław to see where my grandfather was born. It was not just a great tour to see but a very detailed and a very personal touch to the tour. One of the highlights was that we actually went to the archive with Tom and we actually were able to see the birth record of our great grandfather and great grandmother..”

Secondly, his computer skills are commendable as evidenced by his reports, in English, (…) with original documents. Lastly, the reports exceeded my initial expectations. His work was more than satisfactory, and was done, at a reasonable cost.”
