    See a wonderful city in a unique way! We can't recommend this tour enough and our guide, Martin, was the font of all knowledge and a great person to spend the morning with. Little personal touches such as a huge donut, shot of vodka and a packet of his favourite childhood cookies brought a lighter note to a tour that was real eye-opener on such a sad and poignant subject. Photos were also taken for us and emailed afterwards which saved us the bother of scrambling for the camera and best of all... we are both in them! Thank you Martin!

It was a great and well organized tour... this tour gives an excellent overview of some highlights of the city. We started at Royal Park (Lazienki), continued the tour at the POLIN museum of the history of Polish Jews and finished the tour by walking in the Old Town. A lot of interesting information was shared and I definitely know where to go back and stay a bit longer for a visit. The tour is something to be recommended.

Excellent experience. The guide offered to alter the tour a little since it was just me and my girlfriend on the tour (which was an unexpected but welcome turn of events). This took us to the Praga district in Warsaw where our guide (a Warsaw-original who spoke English excellently) told us a lot of interesting details. Thank you Peter for the quick but very interesting and educative tour!

I really liked the tour, was really interesting and full of information! Our guide Olaf was amazing, gave us lot of details and curiosity, he is passionated about what he does and you can feel it! Thanks!
