What people are saying about Warsaw

Our guide Jacek arrived at our hotel at the pickup time. He was very chatty and friendly as we drove to Treblinka. Once at the Treblinka site we first looked around the museum and our guide explained the displays, their significance and then organised for us to watch some short films. Jacek waited for us outside, allow my wife and I to take our time and not feel rushed. We then walked to the camp. Jacek was constantly explaining what we were seeing, marked by various stones or displays. We felt that having Jacek describe, highlight the horrors that occurred at Treblinka helped to make our visit extra special, going above and beyond to make sure we had a great trip. On the way back we stopped at the restaurant for lunch which was delicious. Strongly recommend.

The tour is useful to orient you to many of the major sites in Warsaw. Our guide, Gawel, gave an informative talk in Polish and English at each stop. He used laminated photos to show how sites previously looked. Bikes we're good quality. However, the back brake is applied by peddling backwards and the front brake is on your left.

Warsaw: Private Communism Tour by Retro Minibus Reviewed by Sander, 08/11/2020

The segway's were pretty simple to learn and we all felt confident fairly quickly. Paul is very knowledgeable and has a passion for Poland and its history. He is also very fun and understanding of our still learning to ride, and even our need to play around a bit. So much fun!

Warsaw Old Town 1.5-Hour Segway Tour Reviewed by Trent, 08/16/2020

Visiting Treblinka was a very somber, but also important, experience. Gosia from Warsaw Sightseeing is a very knowledgeable and friendly guide, and I enjoyed both the tour and our conversation.
