Fun way to see Warsaw with knowledgeable and experienced guide
Oct 2021 • Family
My 18 year old son and I had an excellent and fascinating tour with Pavel, our guide. He was passionate and went out of his way to show us all the sites he knew we would particularly enjoy. He was skilled and experienced and his knowledge was endless. He took us to an original “milk bar” introduced us to Polish cuisine and skilfully sped us round the sights and neighbourhoods of Warsaw whilst commenting and adding interesting anecdotes. It was a fun and different way to see the city in the vintage Fiat and the vodka tipple at the end was the icing on the cake.

Fun and informative tour! Highly recommend!
We luckily found this tour through looking at Tripadvisor. It was a wonderful time. At first, three hours seemed like a long time, but by the end we wanted to keep the tour going! We had Martin as our tour guide. He was awesome! He spoke English very well and gave us marvelous insight into the history of Warsaw and some of his own personal experiences from living there. It really enriched our travel journey while visiting this wonderful city. It was also a lot of fun to drive around in the retro car. If you get a chance to, take this tour on your visit. It was fun!

Fantastic Experience
Jan 2020 • Family
We really enjoyed our Private Communist History Tour of Warsaw. Our guide Olga was brilliant. Very knowledgeable and very patient in answering all our questions. Not only did we receive a lot of information about what life was like in Communist Warsaw but we also received a great tour of the city. We also mentioned the boys wanted to buy football jerseys and Olga even drove us to Legia Warsawa’s stadium. The little treat at the end of the tour was also very welcome. I strongly recommend doing this tour if you want to learn about this fantastic city as it existed under the Communists.

Amazing Personalized Tour!
Oct 2019
This tour in Warsaw was definitely our favourite. Our guide, Marcin, was incredibly kind and so knowledgeable! Before we fully began the tour, Marcin gave us an overview of the history of Poland/specifically Warsaw, and had his own personal anecdotes to add to the facts. He showed us around the town, focusing on some specific places, and paid attention to what we were interested in. My great-grandmother lived in Warsaw during the war, and he took the time to bring us to the street we know she lived on, and we actually got to get out and look around. He knew about the history of that area and took the time to research where her family worked and pull up photos on his phone for us. An absolutely amazing trip which I will remember for the rest of my life, and Marcin really made it a great experience for us. Thank you so much Marcin!

Such a friendly history tour
Oct 2019
I learned so much from Pawel - he's a high school history teacher and I wish he'd taught history when I was in high school. It was fun to learn about the ancient car and Pawel's parking skills could be used in any city in the world. I gained new perspective on a city on my first visit there -- and that's exactly what I wanted.

Excellent tour

Our tour guide, Pawel, was excellent. His knowledge was impressive and went far beyond what was expected from the tour. He was flexible in his approach - it felt like we had a tailored itinerary. We found him engaging, passionate and fun and recommend asking for him if you book a tour
