  • Warsaw: Warsaw Ghetto Private Walking Tour with Hotel Pickup

    1. Warsaw: Warsaw Ghetto Private Walking Tour with Hotel Pickup

    Experience an informative and impressive tour of the Warsaw Ghetto. The topic of this tour is the history of the establishment and liquidation of the largest ghetto in Europe. In 1940 the Nazis established the ghetto in the heart of Warsaw. Over 400,000 Jews from Warsaw and the surrounding area were crammed in an area of 4 square kilometers. 100,000 people died here from exhaustion, hunger, and disease and more than 300,000 were killed in Treblinka extermination camp. As a result of the attempt to completely liquidate the ghetto, an uprising broke out in 1943. The unequal struggle between the rebels against the armed German troops lasted nearly one month. In revenge, the Nazis completely destroyed the ghetto. It was survived by only a few Jews including Władysław Szpilman, the hero of the movie “The Pianist” by Roman Polanski. Before the Second World War, the second largest Jewish comm...

    Mary was an excellent guide who was both patient and knowledgeable in answering all my questions on Jews, their background, reasons for oppression as well as all the horrors they went through during the holocaust. I would highly recommend this trip and Mary to anyone who is considering a private tour and the opportunity to satisfy all your queries.

    This walking tour was fantastic! Our guide was so nice and extremely knowledgeable about the history, not only of the holocaust, but also of the wider historical and cultural context of Poland. He took us to so many historically significant places and gave us so much information about life in the ghetto, that the time flew by so quickly. We didn't even realise how far we had walked or that 3 hours had already passed! I would definitely recommend this tour for anybody (except small children). If I return to Warsaw I will go on this tour again.
