What To Expect

Old Town
Warsaw Old Town - it is one of the suggestions.
The Old Town is an excellent start to discovering Warsaw. On the walk, you see Castle Square, where the story of Warsaw started more than 700 years ago. The king who believed to have both Polish and Swedish thrones, old trade paths and signs of German gothic era settlers. There is so much to find! As the walk continues, you discover the gothic Cathedral, narrow side streets filled with tenement houses, a viewing point at the old riverside, and finally, you reach the Market Square. Colourful and prestigious tenement houses with restaurants surround the square: it’s an excellent place to slow down, take a breath and investigate the story of the Warsaw mermaid. If you’re lucky enough, you will meet a Warsaw barrel organ player and listen to (very) old top hits.

Royal Route - it is one of the suggestions.
Krakowskie Przedmieście is Poland’s capital, Warsaw’s best-known and most prestigious streets, surrounded by historic palaces, churches, and manor-houses. It links the Old Town and Royal Castle with some of the most notable institutions in Warsaw, including the Presidential Palace, Warsaw University, and the Polish Academy of Sciences, headquartered in the Staszic Palace. The direct southward extension of Krakowskie Przedmieście along the Royal Route is called Nowy Świat, with the famous palm tree at its end.

Praga Polnoc
Praga district - it is one of the suggestions.
The enigmatic Praga district sits on the Eastern side of the Vistula river. When the minibus crosses the river, one can see picturesque views of the wild riverside. Praga is the only district of Warsaw that survived the apocalypse of WWII - that's why it represents the picture of the pre-WWII city filled with belle-epoque buildings with small and noisy courtyards. Once neglected, it becomes a hip and artistic part of Warsaw, still not affected by commercial tourism.

60 minutes • Admission Ticket Free

Lazienki Krolewskie w Warszawie
Łazienki Royal Gardens - it is one of the suggestions.
Łazienki Royal Gardens were designed in the 17th century as a baths park for nobleman Stanisław Herakliusz Lubomirski. In the 18th century, Poland’s last monarch, Stanislaus II Augustus, transformed the park into a setting for palaces, villas, classicist follies, and monuments. In 1918 it was officially designated a public park. Łazienki is visited by tourists worldwide and serves as a venue for music, the arts, and culture. The park is also home to peacocks and a large number of squirrels.

1 hours • Admission Ticket Free

Warsaw Ghetto
Warsaw Jewish Ghetto - it is one of the suggestions.
Muranów district is the witness of the tragedy of the Jewish Ghetto, created by german Nazis in 1940. The first impression is that it is just a regular neighbourhood filled with squared blocks of flats. But there is much more from the past to be discovered with the help of your guide. In the year 1943, when the last part of the Jewish community was about to be deported to the extermination camp, they created the underground resistance and started the insurrection against their oppressors. This fight took three weeks and resulted in the demolition of the Jewish district in Warsaw. The guide will uncover the covered layers from the past for you

Palace of Culture and Science
Communist Warsaw - it is one of the suggestions.
Unique retro minibus called Żuk (the beetle) - ten miles per gallon, wooden floor, and produced in communist Poland – all add a meaningful piece of reality to your experience. Each stop represents different parts of communist Poland’s history - from the dusk of WWII and post-war reconstruction of Warsaw through the rough ‘60s and ‘70s to the first free elections on the 4th of June 1989. Disclose the secrets of communist Poland, learn how people managed to survive in the central-steered economy and find relics from those days in Warsaw.

Monument to the Warsaw Uprising Fighters
WWII Buffs - it is one of the suggestions.
This program is a choice for those primarily interested in the history of World War II. Tyranny, resistance and gore would be the most appropriate words to describe that part of Polish history. From the remains of the street fights and two insurrections to Warsaw’s so-called 'liberation' by the Soviets in 1945. You'll learn about the battles, heroes and everyday life in Warsaw during the Nazi occupation, the political situation in the region that has changed diametrically throughout coupe years of WWII and the consequences that war has brought to Poland and Europe. Find buildings that may be considered war memorials due to the bullet holes, ricochets, lost souls, pieces of the Jewish Ghetto wall, hills of rubble, gloomy Umschlagplatz, Soviet tanks and aeroplanes. Travel through time thanks to stories you'll hear, combined with archival photographs and our Zuk retro minibus.

Martan was an amazing tour guide in his unique Zuk vintage bus! Very knowledgeable of Warsawa’s history. We were able to customize our tour of exactly what we wanted to see in this city. Would recommend at 5 stars.

Perfect tour for those interested in historical aspects of the city/country! The guide Marek Sidorenko has a great knowledge about history, the vintage fireman car with all those times objects transport you instantly to communist era, and the tour is carefully thought to meet tourist’s expectations. I highly recommend!
Great tour at the right level

If you're in Warsaw for a couple of days take this tour. Conrad our tour guide was really knowledge and personable. There were 5 of us and didn't really know what to expect. He took us to the key points around Warsaw and was able to answer our questions. He is clearly very passionate about his country. The free lunch and shot of vodka were just right.
Knowledgable and Personable Guide for a Tailor-made Tour

Not knowing what to look at first in the city of Warsaw, we booked a private tour in the company’s red commie bus. This turned out to be a very good decision as tour guide Mark showed us mainly the Praga district, saving us having to get there on our own on a later day. He showed us many interesting things that we would never have found on our own. After Praga we rode around the main sights in the city, which was a good preparation for our later walks during the next few days.

Highly recommended and reasonable in price when the fee is divided by a mini-bus full of people
