What people are saying about Warsaw
Enthusiastic, knowledgeable and good sense of humour, our guide was exceptional and gave us a fantastic tour of Warsaw. Great value for money!
Joanna Rozewska is a wonderful, passionate performer. It was a privilege to watch her play from so close so that one could follow her fingers as they flashed across the keyboard. It was a bonus to meet her in person & purchase her CD. The venue was great and intimate that added to the experience. And the compère was charming and informative in bringing together which was for us a most memorable and enjoyable Warsaw experience. We thoroughly recommend this to any other visitors to the lovely city.
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.
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.
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.
