Discover Warsaw’s downtown off the beaten track - its Southern part. You will see places that even locals may not know. First find the former communist headquarters. Then stroll over a mysterious section of the Warsaw Escarpment. We’ll look for a secret meeting spot from the 1700s, and for the former Mason's lodge. Then we'll look for bullet holes on façades of buildings where the German Nazis resided. Wander around a cool urban garden, and stop at an elegant 19th century park. Walk down an elegant venue with 19th century residences of Warsaw elite. Cross a significant communist era housing estate, and visit a beautiful university complex. Then find out where the "Pianist" movie was filmed, and stop at my favourite sweet shop to try some of their incredible pastry. The tour will come to its close at a cozy food venue, where perhaps you will like to stay. This tour will allow you to see Warsaw from a local's perspective, and to see a fascinating area that visitors usually miss.

Lucasz gave us a very interesting tour with lots of information. He is very knowledgeable and is English is excellent. He provided us with many tips for the rest of the stay. We were able to easily communicate with him prior to our arrival.
Thanks Lucasz!!!
Nice tour, not standard

Nice tour that brings you to places that you would not find yourself. Lukasz knows a lot about the city and history and he also is very interested in his guests, eg where they are from etc. I would definitely recommend a tour with him. Next time I want to do the Jewish tour.
Great tour guide

Lukasz was great to work with in advance and very knowledgeable about the area. It was great to be able to express our interests and for him to create the tour around them. Would highly recommend.
Absolutely terrific

We arrived off the plane from Australia and about an hour later we were walking with Lukasz. Talk about beating the jetlag! Just loved the tour. Lukasz was knowledgeable, interesting, personable. We really loved the 'off the beaten path' style of tour; we went to places we would never have gone to on our own. Loved that he loves architecture and photography. Would recommend in a heart beat. (Sorry to have been so longer writing a review Lukasz! Just been back 1 week).
Perfect trip

Po raz kolejny skorzystałem z usług Łukasza, tym razem dla znajomych z Kanady. Wszyscy byli zachwyceni, Łukasz łatwo nawiązuje kontakt z ludźmi i ma świetny angielski! Zobaczyliśmy mało turystyczne miejsca, mroczne zaułki, podwórka, przedwojenne kamienice z ciekawymi historiami. Z czystym sumieniem polecam wszystkim!
