What You Can Expect

Small-Group Warsaw Day Trip from Krakow

Warsaw's Old Town

Begin your day trip with pickup from your Krakow hotel. Sit back and relax on your way to Poland’s capital city.

Upon arrival, follow your guide on a private sightseeing tour. Your first stop will be along the Vistula River in the area of Praga. Once home to the city’s impoverished and criminal population, the neighborhood has today transformed into an artistic hub. Pass the renovated factories and warehouses now bustling with galleries, restaurants and bars, frequented by both locals and visitors alike.

Continue to Lazienki Park, formerly a hunting ground. Pass the neoclassical Lazienki Palace before walking down the Royal Route to the city’s UNESCO-listed Old Town. Admire the medieval architecture as you stroll to the Old Town Market Place, full of traditional Polish cafes, restaurants and shops.

Settle into a local restaurant for an authentic Polish lunch. (Sample menu listed in the Itinerary section.) After sating your appetite, soak up some free time to wander Warsaw independently before traveling back to your original departure point in Krakow.

4 star rating: Recommended March 2013

The guides were wonderful but because of very cold weather we left early

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better June 2013

I hesitate to give this tour a 2-star rating because I don't want it to reflect negatively on the guides who were extremely prompt, very efficient, and well informed. The logistical services were great. However, the tour was represented to be a "small-group" with no more than 10 people and there were, in fact, 20/21 people in the tour group when we arrived in Warsaw. Also, the 3-hour train ride described in the trip details was, in fact, a 5-hour, multi-stop train ride on the return to Krakow. We enjoyed spending the day in Warsaw, but the trip details were not what Viator represented them to be.
