Enjoyed the early morning tour with Martin as our guide visiting Warsaw Old Town, ruins of Jewish Ghetto and the East Bank of the river Vistula for a brief touch of authentic historical buildings that survived a terrific war destruction. We opted for the Praga District over Park Łazienki as we had less than three hours for our tour. Our guide, Martin, gave an informative talk in perfect English at each stop. He used laminated photos to show how some of the sites used to look like before the war. A hidden yard with a Jewish shrine in Praga was a gem - I'd never found it on my own. Driving around in the retro Fiat was fun and a great way to plan for future visits to Warsaw. Thank you for a memorable tour!
Excellent tour of Warsaw comprising Old Town, Jewish Ghetto and Praga District - we opted for the latter over Park Łazienki which we visited on our own the following day . Olga, the tour guide, provided loads of interesting info about these areas plus answers to our questions. A secluded courtyard with a shrine in Praga was particularly interesting - we'd have never found it on our own. Driving around in the retro Fiat was fun and we got loads of looks from pedestrians. A great way to see the main parts of Warsaw and set us up superbly for planning our itinerary over the next few days.
Our guide spoke perfect English and was hugely informative. He really helped to paint a vivid picture of War torn Warsaw as well as educating us about life under Soviet rule. It was fun to travel round in the communist era bus and we saw parts of the city which we wouldn’t have experienced otherwise. He also took us to a hipster place for lunch ( which we hadn’t realised was included in the price) where we had a local speciality and obligatory beer. Would thoroughly recommend.
fantastic guide. knew a lot about communism and polish history. friendly and smart. he's open for discussion about past, present and future poland and the world in general. nice sights of communism warsaw. and i didn't have to ask to go off the beaten track. he was kind enough to do that on his own. it was super. thanks!!!
Absolutely fantastic. The guide was excellent and curtailed the tour to our needs in terms of accessibility (my co-traveller could not walk far) and to our interests. Our guide was extremely educated and helped us understand Warsaw from a political and cultural perspective. I would highly recommend this tour.
