Full description
Take a 3-hour comprehensive tour of the main highlights of Warsaw on a comfortable air-conditioned bus with a group of 15 participants at most. Learn about the somber and troubled history of the city by visiting some of the remaining sites and monuments to the uprisings and tragedies that took place in Warsaw during WWII. Your knowledgeable guide will also point out some iconic architectural wonders along the way.  

Start your trip in the Royal Garden Lazienki, full of monuments that survived the war. The next stop will be the Monument to Warsaw Ghetto Heroes, which commemorates the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising during WWII. Continue on to Umschlagplatz, one of the most heartbreaking places in Warsaw: on this square, Nazis loaded Jewish people into carriages and transported them to Treblinka concentration camp.  

Visit Warsaw’s Old Town, where the Royal Castle is located—destroyed during the Warsaw Uprising in 1944, the castle was rebuilt in 1984 and remains today one of the city’s most iconic landmarks. In the Old Town you’ll also drive by the Archcathedral Basilica of St. John the Baptist, one of the most important churches in Warsaw. The building was created in a specific Masovian Gothic style and went through the same destruction and rebuilding as the Royal Castle.  
 
Next, take a stroll through the Old Town with your guide—take in the magical atmosphere of the old town and explore Barbicam, a defensive wall made in the Gothic style with handmade red bricks. Finish off this historical tour with a visit to the Warsaw Uprising Monument, the most expressive and symbolic monument in Warsaw. Here, you can take a moment to process all that you’ve seen during the day.
