What You Can Expect

Private Tour: Warsaw Walking Tour

Stop for photos by the Palace of Culture and Science!

Much of Warsaw was destroyed during World War II, but the resilient city rebuilt it all, including the 13th-century Old Town. While the buildings you'll see appear timeworn, they were in fact constructed in the postwar era.

Begin your tour near Warsaw Central Station, where you’ll join up with your guide and hit the streets. Head first through Castle Square to gaze up at the Royal Castle. Admire the Baroque and Renaissance architecture in Old Town Square, stopping to stroll around the Mermaid statue, a symbol of the city represented on the coat of arms. Then, head to Pilsudski Square to spot the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, dedicated to those who have lost their lives for their country.

Continue to the former Jewish ghetto to learn more about Warsaw’s Jewish community. Pay homage to the lives lost during the Holocaust at the Umschlagplatz Monument and the Ghetto Heroes Monument.

Afterward, soak up a piece of the city’s communist history as you head to the Palace of Culture and Science. See the place where the party once ruled and witness other examples of Stalinist architecture.

After three hours of history, culture and top attractions, you’ll conclude at your original departure point.

Walked for 3 and 1/2 hours with Bart, who was very friendly and knowledgable about the city and its history. He was kind enough to ask what our interests were prior to starting the tour so he could tailor it to suit us best. Warsaw is a very walkable city, but has cobblestones like most European cities, so comfortable shoes are a good idea. One thing I would warn against....don't sign up for a pierogi cooking class that same day. Nearly everyone in our cooking class had had a tour earlier that day, and because e cooking class involves 4 hours of standing, I would not recommend it after 4 hours of walking the city.

All in all, every Vistor private walking tour that I have taken has been the highlight of my trip. If you have not done one yet, you ar missing out.

Warsaw is the most fascinating city I’ve visited in Eastern Europe! The history is mind-blowing, and my guide certainly did it justice. He was so knowledgeable: I was totally engrossed in his fascinating and often awe-inspiring stories about World War II, the terrible impact of the holocaust and Warsaw in the communist era, but also about the famous Chopin and Poland’s wonderful cultural traditions. I saw everything I wanted to see, and asked so many questions; the guide was friendly and gracious throughout. Can’t recommend this tour enough!

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Pawel. He was so knowledgable about Warsaw and it's history that the three hours went quickly. He even took us to his favourite donut shop which was wonderful after 2 hours of walking. Being in a group of three made it more personal and of course easy to hear.
