The Wolf's Lair and its significance as a key location for the conduct of the second world war would have been much more difficult to interpret without our guide, Martin. At the (mostly destroyed) Wolf's Lair, he explained the use each building was put to and the fortification and camoflage measures. We later visited the High Command of the German army, which although empty of the original contents, was not physically destroyed and there were many similarities in the construction with the Wolf's Lair. He is very knowlegeable about the second world war and commented extensively about it and answered all our questions. I consider myself quite knowlegeable, but I still learnt a lot. In addition, we visited an abandoned part-finished lock gate construction, which was planned by the Nazis as part of a string of locks necessary to achieve a navigable connection to the Baltic. Such enormous projects reflect the engineering might of the third Reich and their fantastic organisational skills. Ma
I had the most amazing tour in this trip. Kris, my driver (also the tour agency owner) is wonderful and made my commute easy. He also gave me other insights on other places to visit in Warsaw. Waldemar, my tour guide at Wolfe Laire was wonderful! He was so knowledgeable about the history and the place and was also a great photographer for me along the way. He knew exactly where the best views were to take pictures. The weather and everything were perfect. I didn't want to leave... Though the commute is quite far (4 hours 1 way from Warsaw) but every single minute was so worth it. I am so glad that I visited this place during my stay in Poland. I will DEFINITELY recommend everyone to visit Wolf Laire when in Poland. Poland is so amazing and this is a site you do not want to miss!
It was a great day out! I will say that the drive from Warsaw and back is long. It seems that going anywhere in Poland takes awhile though. The ride was nice, we had a van for just the 3 of us so we were quite comfortable. There was a little restaurant on site to grab a quick bite if you choose to and the tour of the bunkers was very interesting. I do wish we had more time there but it is definitely hard to do when coming from Warsaw.
Our trip to Wolf's Lair was wonderful! A few days before, we were contacted and given very helpful and specific details so that we could be prepared. Our driver and guide were prompt, and the day went exactly as expected. We even got to stop for lunch at a fantastic restaurant that our driver, Kristoff, suggested. Definitely recommend this tour for anyone who wants to see Wolf's Lair without all the hassle and stress of planning it!
Chris was a very personable driver. Well organized tour, exciting tour.
