Went on the dark side tour. Had an interpreter, Adam, and he was absolutely fantastic. Gave us some additional information and this was perfect. Go, enjoy and learn. Warsaw is an incredible city and to have this tour brings the city alive.

This is a really a great excursion to go on while visiting Warsaw, with pre- and post-War history and architecture around every corner. The historical bus you ride enhances the experience, too.
