It was a great and well organized tour... this tour gives an excellent overview of some highlights of the city. We started at Royal Park (Lazienki), continued the tour at the POLIN museum of the history of Polish Jews and finished the tour by walking in the Old Town. A lot of interesting information was shared and I definitely know where to go back and stay a bit longer for a visit. The tour is something to be recommended.

Excellent experience. The guide offered to alter the tour a little since it was just me and my girlfriend on the tour (which was an unexpected but welcome turn of events). This took us to the Praga district in Warsaw where our guide (a Warsaw-original who spoke English excellently) told us a lot of interesting details. Thank you Peter for the quick but very interesting and educative tour!

A very rewarding tour of the old town with a guide who knew her subject well and spoke English very well. She introduced me to this most typical part of Warsaw. She also helped me get a train ticket so took me to the central station, I thank her very much.

Started a little late but the knowledge of the guide made up for it. She was born here and her presentation of historical facts and stories was light years ahead of our other tour guide.

Great tour with Adam very knowledgeable would highly recommend
