“Simply the best!”
Reviewed November 30, 2013

Got the tip from a friend who's been living in Warsaw, didn't know what to expect but were pleasantly surprised. Our guide Michal took us for a 2,5 hour tour around the old and new town of Warsaw, where he told us not only about these parts of Warsaw but also about the history of Poland. Even in the freezing weather he kept us intrigued with humor (and Vodka!), and we gladly completed the whole tour. (You are free to join and leave at any point). Can absolutely recommend this tour, dress warm and bring a camera.

“OU Free Walking Tour”
Reviewed November 30, 2013

Free Walking Tours are one of my favorite methods of getting acquainted with a newly visited European City. A good guide makes the tour and unfortunately I did not catch her name, today's guide had the enthusiasm, knowledge and volume to make the tour interesting and educational. It was chilly and rain fell during most of the tour but we were under our own umbrellas (mine was red, clash) and in and out of buildings enough that we did not suffer. My only comment would be to suggest the guide walk a little more slowly between stops as some members of the tour were unable to keep up and dropped off for coffee and a warm place to sit down.
Part of this city tour included a free (yes, no charge) shot of Polish Vodka and snack. While interesting, I could have skipped that part of the tour and spent the ten or fifteen minutes seeing other sites in Old Town Warsaw.

“A great insight into Warsaw”
Reviewed November 29, 2013

Polish hospitality is warm-hearted and gracious, as my friend I-Ning and I were discovering a great detail with Michał Sobieszuk's impressive guide of Warsaw and Poland. The time we tasted the autheticity of Poland in terms of its history, culture, and of course polish vodka and traditional snacks.

“A warm introduction to chilly Warsaw”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

In Warsaw on a Monday, the museums were closed, but this tour was a great introduction to Old Town. It was a brisk but sunny day and there was just enough stops inside to warm up. Michel did a great job and he was good at telling stories and giving recommendations on what else to do about town. I highly recommend the tour if you only have a day in the city or if like me you are staying a while and want a nice introduction. Also you can leave at any time and a number of people jumped on and off our tour at different points.

“Great intro to Warsaw”
Reviewed November 20, 2013

We had one day in town between trains and this tour is a great introduction into the town and its history. Better than walking around on your own as you get the stories of the city and what has made it what bit is. Knowledgeable guide with good English spoke well. His name was Andrzej.
