What people are saying about Warsaw

Eva was a dynamic, very knowledgeable & passionate guide.

The tour itself was exceptional, because of Eva's dynamic & passionate approach to her subject. Eva showed us everything & she enabled us to travel on public transport very easily. However the company needs to change the information in what we were sent because it says the type of your would be a private car tour not public transport. It also read "Not included: entrance tickets, lunch" but under type of your alongside private car tour were the words"sightseeing with entrance to sites" which presumably means entrance tickets." Other than these last points it was an excellent your &:we valued having Eva to ourselves. Many thanks & congratulations to Eva for a fantastic tour.

Very informative tour and a great concert

I really enjoyed the guided tour. The guide knew all about Chopin and it was a great experience to visit all these places especially that they are in the most beautiful part of Warsaw. The guide also answered the questions nit related to Chopin :) The concert was a nice experience too, a small music hall, very good performance.

Warsaw: Guided Frederic Chopin Tour with Concert Reviewed by Nicolas, 07/11/2019

Excellent tour with guide who is passionate about Warsaw History!

The three hour tour optimized all of the sights. The guide kept the group on focus and moving so we could see more sites. Provided excellent information about the impact of WWII on Warsaw. Also identified how the city was rebuilt. Great mix of driving and walking. We recommended to a group we met the next day in Warsaw.

Warsaw: Afternoon City Tour with Pickup & Drop-off Reviewed by Anonymous, 09/12/2019

Our guide had great historical knowledge and It was fun

It was nice to explore places that are not seen on typical historical tours and immerse into the culture of Warsaw. I felt like there was so much more to learn and the tour was cut a bit short. Our driver and guide were exceptional.

Warsaw: Off the Beaten Path 4-Hour Tour Reviewed by Anonymous, 08/25/2019

Brilliant with a very informative local guide.

Perfect opportunity to ‘have a go ‘ on an electric scooter. We covered lots of ground in the 90 minutes. Paul our guide was extremely knowledgable and his passion for his home town came over throughout the tour.
