Informative tour of the old town

Our tour guide gave us - in perfect German - the whole old town and a little bit more (borders to the Warsaw Ghetto) with great knowledge. On request, we were also happy to provide detailed explanations of other important sights, even spontaneously. Of course, we also met the large group tours, but - especially in the old town - would always prefer private or small group tours. All in all - successful, entertaining two hours

Informative and varied

We arrived in Warsaw at noon and had booked a 3-hour city tour for a group of ten at 3:00 p.m. Our guide (Mr. Marek) greeted us punctually at the meeting point, asked us about special requests for the tour and off we went. It was a very informative tour of the old town, which everyone really liked. Thanks to the facts on Polish history and that of the city of Warsaw, presented in the best German, we got a good overview of the city, which we should then explore in more detail in the following days. We were thrilled with the great achievement of having rebuilt Warsaw. Our guide pointed out the reconstruction in many places and explained the historical context using the current buildings. We were very happy with the tour, which gave us all a great "plus" of knowledge about Warsaw and Polish history. Thanks again to Marek!
