Great ride

Mariusz was an excellent tour guide. The ride in the Żuk was something we will never forget. The kids loved it. Highly recommend it.
Fantastic tour of Warsaw!

Marcin is very knowledgeable about the history of Warsaw and Poland and “where it happened” including sites probably not covered by other tours.
Tooling around the city in a retro communist-era Żuk mini-van, we ‘traveled’ through the beginnings of Polish history, through the centuries to events of WW 2, the communist era, up to the present day.
Whatever you think you know about this history, Marcin can tell you more than what in found in textbooks.
Highly recommended for history buffs.
If history is not your thing, take a look at the others themes offered. I’m sure there is something for everyone, no doubt done equally well.
Book the tour! Learn and enjoy!!!
