What You Can Expect
Head first through the socialist architecture of Constitution Square and gaze up at the impressive Ministry of Agriculture on Wspólna Street. Then, check out one of the city’s most famous Stalinist skyscrapers, the Palace of Culture and Science. Learn why Varsovians refer to the structure as the ‘elephant in lacy underwear,’ as you step inside to explore.
Continue to the Central Committee of the Polish United Workers’ Party, the group’s headquarters during communist rule. Delve deeper into the period’s politics and disputes before heading to a communist-era apartment.
Inside, enjoy a taste of traditional snacks characteristic of the 1950s and 60s, complemented by a shot of local vodka. Watch a few brief communist propaganda films before hopping back inside your Nysa 522. After four hours, your tour will conclude at your Warsaw hotel.
This was an excellent way to learn about what life was like under communist rule of Warsaw. The museum that depicts day to day life in commie Warsaw was simply excellent with the exhibits and items featureds.
Fantastic, and informative, tour lead by the fantastic Tom! This is the second Viator tour that I've been on and both have been great. For the money you can't beat it....
This tour was amazing!

great tour guide...very knowledgeable and professional.....learned alot
Great tour, well worth doing
Fun and very informational 522 car tour. The driver was knowledgeable, pleasant. The Nysa 522 car made it really great.
So worth doing if you want something different and quirky and historically informative. I did this trip at the beginning of my stay in Warsaw and I saw the city differently after that. You learn a lot and the tour guide is great. This is a small, enterprise local company so you can feel good and support it! Plus you learn about the city.
This was a fabulous tour. Our guide Bart was informative, professional but lots of fun. The tour itself was quirky especially the vehicle. Bart gave great insight to the Communist era prior to the fall of the Iron Curtain.
Highly recommended and value for money
Wonderful trip and tour was the best I have had....Adventure warsaw group is the best really. The tour was 5 people and was very detailed I learned a lot fro a actual local who lived during the Soviet occupation. I highly suggest this tour. The Van was really cool too what a adventure.

This was an outstanding tour. Mariusz, our guide, really knew his topic well, and kept us entertained and informed. The four hours flew by. A couple of things you should be aware of though...there are no seat belts, or in fact any sort of safety devices in the car, so I wouldn't recommend it for the safety conscious; and secondly we didn't get entirely what was advertised. No snacks or films at the communist era flat for example. But this aside it was a most enjoyable, highly recommended tour.
