What To Expect

Old Town
The tour is a 90-minute exploratory walk beginning just outside the famed Warsaw Old Town and ends with a face-to-face meeting with a truly legendary man, famous Polish statesman and warrior for Polish freedom, Marshall Józef Piłsudski. Start the tour in the app, put your phone away, and let your guide direct you through the streets of Warsaw. The total walking distance is approximately 3km and takes about 90 minutes, but you can pause anytime and explore further wherever you are! You might want to stop at the Vodka Museum, have lunch at one of the many fine restaurants in the city, capture photo opportunities along the way or wander the beautiful Saxon Garden. The narration is crisply mastered by a professional audio engineering staff, and the tour integrates sound effects and music to create an engaging experience that is suitable for all ages that can wear ear buds, wear headphones, or even carry a speaker if it's a small group.

Monument to the Warsaw Uprising Fighters
If you love history, culture, tragedy, stories of brave heroes, battles and honour, this tour is one you will remember. Warsaw is a phoenix; It rose from the ashes of WW2 to become the amazing city of high culture, art and beauty it is today. The Polish fought fiercely to hold onto their heritage, and we document their struggles during WW2 against the two great European powers of the day: Nazi Germany and Communist Russia.

We'll stop here for a moment at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier to pay respect to those lost fighting for their country and to admire the stories behind this sacred place. Learn about the history of this monument, including how today it contains ashes and soil from every 20th-century battlefield where Polish soldiers lost their lives.

Josef Pilsudski Monument
Regarded as a political and military hero, hear about how this man fought relentlessly to free Poland from the shackles of Russian control, ultimately defeating Lenin's red Army at the gates of Warsaw in 1920. Our tour will end here.

An excellent insight into well-known attractions and Warsaw during World War 2.

There are many great attractions in Warsaw, and this tour is a way to learn about them and gain new insights into the city, explore at your own pace and get a lot out of the tour without the crowds limiting what you can hear or the time you can pause for photos, or getting in the way.

It takes ~70 minutes to complete, and allows one to pause and restart at will if you want to spend more time somewhere or take a lunch break. There's genuinely more info here in this short walk than in the 2 hour guided tour. Once you're done you have a knowledge of how to orient and get around in Warsaw's main tourist district, and have new places to put on the list of attractions to explore further.
Plonger dans l'histoire de l'insurrection.

Le lieu est parfait. Même si on ne suit pas toujours exactement le sens de visite. Interactivite pleinement réussie en choisissant l'audioguide et en parcourant les différents niveaux. C'est tellement passionnant qu'il faut compter au moins 2h 15 pour tout parcourir. C'est un must pour comprendre l'histoire d'une ville qui fut rasée par les nazis.... Avec l'assentiment de Staline.

Une entrée de plein fouet dans une Varsovie en guerre, une chasse aux juifs, un monde où la bêtise est humaine.
Poignant et émouvant
