What people are saying about Warsaw

Beautiful, intimate concert, lovely setting, and charming host.

I thoroughly enjoyed the Chopin concert. The pianist on my visit was Aleksandra Hurkala, and she put on a fantastic concert. The host was a lovely gentleman, and the setting in the art gallery within the castle was really special. The mead at intermission was a bonus, and nice chance to chat with other guests.

A unique and fun tour around a remarkable city

Michel's enthusiasm for Warsaw was infectious. During this fascinating tour he made sure that we saw many, if not most, of the different sides of Warsaw - the historic and often tragic side, the post-war Communist side and the current modern and hip side. We went to places we never would have found on our own and we heard the history of the city that was very personal and meaningful. Michel was entertaining and knowledgeable. He worked to adapt the schedule to our interests and he even managed to "sneek" in a couple of extra stops to show us the greener side of Warsaw. If you like adventure and to get off the beaten path with a passionate and knowledgeable guide then I highly recommend you tour with Michel and Adventurous Warsaw.

Szimone's passion and knowledge of Warsaw brought its history to life.

I had just a one-day layover in Warsaw and wanted to make the most efficient use of my time. Szimone picked us up at the airport, dropped our luggage at the hotel, and proceeded to give an insightful and interesting tour which whetted my desire to return to Warsaw.

Our guide was punctual, knowledgeable and fun.

We had a great tour of Warsaw with (starts with J, but I can’t spell it!! We actually did 5 hours which I think is needed if you only had one day. The Fiat was very fun!! Highly recommend this tour.

Nice tour, nice telling, got picked up from our hotel

There is so much to be told about Warsaw. Very interesting city. Don't miss it - great job! Thanks
