This tour gave you a great overview of Warsaw and the tour guide was very knowledgeable and interesting. There were several opportunities to get off the bus and explore further, which gave you a much more in-depth view.
A word of warning to those who have difficulty walking - there were two 45 minute walks during this tour, which were at a reasonably slow pace but may cause issues for those who can't walk that far. I have a back condition and was a bit concerned when this was mentioned, as I had thought it was a bus tour but in actual fact I was fine on the walks and the tour guide only took it as fast as the slowest person so you didn't miss out on anything.
The first walk was around Lazienki Park which was beautiful and well worth a visit, including the monument to Chopin and the Palace on the Water. The second walk was around the Old Town which again was lovely and definitely worth seeing. You could stay in the Old Town at the end of the tour rather than return to your hotel and if the weather had been better this would have been nice to do. However, on our tour there was torrential rain for the latter half, so most of us chose to go back to the hotel!
You also got the chance to get off the bus at the monument to the Jews in the old Jewish ghetto, which was very moving and the tour guide was excellent in describing the horrors of war for this population. The tour gave a really good insight into the history of the city and the country itself.
Overall, I would highly recommend this tour for those new to Warsaw who want a good overview of all the key sights, so you can decide what you want to explore further yourself at a later time. Moreover, the pick-ups and drop-offs at the hotel were very smooth and even though I was one of the first pick-ups you didn't feel like you had to wait for your tour to start until everyone was there, as the tour guide started explaining things and pointing out interesting sights immediately.
Very good value for the money. Our tour guide is very knowledgeable and provided a lot of good information about the places visited.
This was a great tour and learning experience about Warsaw. My guide was excellent and told many stories of life in Warsaw during the war and communist rule. I would highly recommend you taking this tour.
Artur was superb. This was a well-planned tour with an excellent guide.
This was a very scenic and educational tour of Warsaw. Great guide who was passionate about sharing the history of this great city. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Warsaw.
Excellent tour, excellent organization and very friendly tour guide
As we were five in the group, each of us got more personal attention from our guide.
I found our tour covering so many and so much and so interesing that I would not mind paying more for 4-5 hour.
Great tour guide...and a really interesting city.
very personalized tour/ One of the best. can recommend to friends
The bus picked me up quite promptly. We had a lovely tour guide who took us through all over Warsaw including memorial sights for the holocaust. Our tour ended with our group walking through Old Town. The bus then took us to everyones hotel.
Lovely tour and really got to see the sights of Warsaw. Highly Recommended.
Great guide. He was well informed and went out of his way to be attentive and helpful.
A very interesting and informative trip. Our guide was very professional.
Wonderful half day tour!!! Our guide was really good and knew his stuff! The tour takes you to all the main parts of Warsaw and covers everything you need to know! Defiantly worth it!!!
Very well-presented and explained tour covering Warsaw's past and present histories.
This tour was an excellent way of getting to know Warsaw in a short period of time, which was ideal for us only spending a day and a half in Warsaw. Hotel pick up is available from a number of hotels. Our guide spoke excellent English, was very friendly and obviously passionate about her city and also Poland in general. Overall an excellent half day tour..
The guide is excellent and arrived on time to pick me up at the hotel. He spoke English fluently and provided useful info about places we visited. Very impressive.
Excellent trip.. The guide and driver where very good . I would recommend this tour to anyone who has a limited amount of time in Warsaw.
There were about 10 of us in a little mini-bus and there were several opportunities to get out and walk. We seemed to cover just about everything of note in the city. The guide spoke excellent English, was extremebly informative and very entertaining. At the end of the tour we were able to get out and return to areas we wanted to visit in more depth. It was an excellent way to see the city if time is limited.
Excellent trip. There was a great combination of riding in the bus to get from point to point and then we would get out and do the tour walking through the streets. Perfect. The guide was very good and really knew a lot of history. I would recommend this tour to anyone who has a limited amount of time in Warsaw as you get to see a lot of the city and still have time to explore on your own before the day is done.
We liked very much the trip in the city. We had a complete view of the most important places in the city, and we could decide where we should go after.
Really interesting trip and very informative. The guide was very friendly and knew all about the history of Warsaw and answered everyone's questions without hesitation. Surprisingly, the trip was mostly walking with occasional spells on the bus. However, this did not detract as it meant we could see more and discuss with the guide what we were passing. We also benefited from the weather, which was lovely, and the fact that there were only five of us on the trip. The trip was the first thing we did in Warsaw, and it introduced us to the city, enabling us to find our own way round after. Absolutely recommended as a way to start a trip to Warsaw.
We had a wonderful time. Our guide spoke fluent English and Spanish and barely stopped to take a breath. She made sure all questions were answered. I liked getting off the bus to explore the Royal Way and the Old City. It was also nice to have the option to remain in Old City after the tour. That's where we were going next, and staying there saved us lots of time.
I enjoyed this tour from the moment they picked us up at our hotel until they dropped us off. Our multi-lingual guide worked hard to ensure that we understood the history of Warsaw and that we saw all of the must-see sights.
