A unique experience

The driver was quite friendly and knowledgeable. The bus itself, cute and perhaps a bit uncomfortable for some (we were fine) but do realize, it isn't a comfort sedan! That is part of the experience.

We live in Warsaw but had a friend visit and it was just right for both parties. There were spots they took us to and explained that we did not know about.
The museum was interesting and our guide did a good job explaining.
The rainy day didn’t stop us having a great tour !

Sadly it was a super rainy cold day during or tour but that’s life ! The pink Nysa pick us up on time outside the Hard Rock Cafe. It was so cool to travel round in this old van even if it was pink! The stops we made where interesting and our tour guide was very knowledgeable really enjoyed the life under communism museum! My only regret is not getting a photo with the van but the weather didn’t help this factor and my own fault for forgetting! Very enjoyable tour would recommend
Wonderful history lesson in a cool van

I fancied a tour around Warsaw but wondered how to convince my partner to try one, when I spotted this one in a vintage Communist van. As they are a massive fan of vintage vans it was no trouble conceiving him this was the trip for us. We were picked up by Pablo in a pink van from our hotel and had a wonderful few hours touring around the communist sights around Warsaw. Pablo a local, who was a boy during communist rule was amazing and a real insight in to what it was like to live through the period and how things have changed during his lifetime and how things are going to be in the future. He also was kind enough to drop us off where we wanted in Praga. It was a wonderful time and very surprising especially the Scandinavian log cabins village in the centre of the city. It felt like a country hippy paradise in the city.
Fascinating insight.

A great way if getting 'behind the scenes' in Warsaw. Amazing little can, charming knowledgeable guide who was clearly very proud of her polish history. Thoroughly recommend.
Communist tour by Artur was excellent!

My wife and I had the pleasure of joining the Communism tour led by Artur. We happened to be the only people in the morning tour so we were lucky enough to get a very attentive treatment. Artur was very passionate about teaching about Warsaw and it showed during the tour. We had a lovely time and learned a lot. Dziękuje bardzo, Artur!
