Combine less formal city sightseeing with visits to Warsaw’s pubs on this 3 hours night tour with a communist minibus. Be introduced to Warsaw, go where locals go, and drink what they drink. Hear exciting anecdotes, learn something about Warsaw and enjoy your night! Three vodka shots are included in the tour price.

The concept of this tour is to join city sightseeing with getting to know Warsaw’s nightlife and drinks - it’s a perfect combination for those who don’t have time for, or don’t want to do, the daytime tours. With a communist minibus, the guide takes you through the last 70 years of Warsaw's history and its drinks. It’s a period of tremendous changes: post-WWII outbreak of communism, dark and often funny ‘60s and ‘70s, the resurrection of democracy in the ’90s and fantastic development in the last twenty years. Thanks to open-air pubs, you may spend more time outside on a warm night.

What To Expect

Grzybowski Square
It’s good to have a decent start - the guide takes you to the Grzybowski square. It represents Warsaw in a nutshell- the city that changed dramatically during the XX Century, witnessed two World wars, two totalitarian systems, and, finally, incredible recovery and growth thanks to uniting Europe in the early XXI Century.

Nowy Swiat
We do not want to take you to the mainstream pubs - we expect something more than that. So the first vodka shot happens at Pavilions, a group of over twenty neighbouring pubs, most of which have been set up by the student’s community in abandoned small stores and artisans workshops. It is a small community of individuals who collectively hold a strong position on Warsaw’s cultural and party map.

Palm Tree
After the first round of drinks, you are prepared to learn a bit more about communism in Poland. Your Żuk minibus is parked in front of the communist party headquarters, the exceptional structure that looks like a bank HQ, although it was filled with the people who barely graduated primary schools. Then, after 1989, the re-born Warsaw Stock Exchange entered the place - the history once again sneered at the past.

Praga Polnoc
It’s time to take a ride across the city and over the Vistula river to Paga, the only complete and original pre-WWII district of Warsaw. It used to be a derelict and not a friendly place back in the days, thanks to the lack of investments, production of illegal alcohol and all kinds of businesses related to the black market. Luckily, the last 15 years have been a time of revival; non-mainstream culture came over the Praga, independent pubs, bars and restaurants have filled the streets and brought them back to life.

Vistula Boulevards
It is worth visiting Vistula riverside bars for the third drink in the summertime. Did you know that drinking in public is illegal in Poland? Well, that upsets us too. Nevertheless, lawyers found a loophole and proved that the riverside is not a public space since it’s a part of the river bottom, and you’re free to drink there whatever you want. Brilliant solution! After the summer season, your guide takes you to one of the bars in the central districts of Warsaw.

Mario made the tour extremely fun in addition to presenting Warsaw in an interesting way. He made adjustments along the way and was a perfect way to experience Warsaw during our hen party

Marek was our tour guide for this trip. Anyone that goes on this trip MUST request him. He was absolutely amazing. The tour itself was fun and a great learning experience, but honestly Marek was the star. He goes above and beyond in his job. He took the time to share additional spots for us to end our trip in Warsaw.
Great experience with an awesome tourguide

We had a festive tour with a knowledgeable and personal guide. It feels like a friend that shows you the “must see” things in Warsaw. I recommend doing this in the beginning of a trip to have more ideas of what to further investigate on your trip. This is not a “Stag get drunk” tour, more of a “let’s taste the local cuisine” with a friend.
Do this!

Probably one of the best tours I ever tried. The history of Warsaw became real for just a short while. Big thanks to our guide that with his historical knowledge and passion made this tour unforgettable.
