OUR GUIDES’ RECOMMENDATIONS
Orange Umbrella Guide
Are you coming to Warsaw in April? Gośka has a few tips for you!
There’s no doubt that spring is approaching slowly this year: we witnessed snow still at the beginning of the month, but that was probably only some kind of a bad April Fools’ Day joke – the next days look much more promising! So what to keep in mind when visiting Warsaw in April?
- Take advantage of the good weather and join one of new Orange Umbrella free tours! Every Friday and Saturday, we are guiding our guests through the famous Praga district – a city within a city with a real spirit of the past, spared from the destruction during WW2. ‘Praga by locals’ tours start at 11 a.m. every Friday and Saturday in front of the St. Florian’s Cathedral (Praga district, bus and tram stop – Park Praski). And if you happen to be in Warsaw on Sunday, do not miss our ‘Royal Sunday in Lazienki Park’ tour, which starts at 2 p.m. at Roman Dmowski Statue (corner of Al. Szucha and Al. Ujazdowskie) and allows you to learn more about the enchanting Lazienki Park and its palace – one of the top ‘Things to do‘ in Warsaw according to Trip Advisor! We are proud to be the only company providing free tours of Lazienki.
- If Lazienki is not enough for you, then April is the month when many city gardens open their doors to the public – among them the University of Warsaw Botanic Garden, which this year celebrates its 200th anniversary. Check the opening hours to be sure that you come when the greenhouses are open!
- Another must-see garden is the Warsaw University Library Roof Garden – one of the largest and most beautiful roof gardens in Europe with an area of more than 10,000 m2, and a stunning view of the Vistula river and its surroundings. The garden consists of two parts: an upper garden and a lower one connected by a stream and a water-cascade. Visitors may also look into the Library through both the special windows and glass roof. The Roof Garden is open to the public every day from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
- When you get tired of nature and decide to go on a shopping spree, bear in mind that due to the new law in Poland, all shops (except for small, owner-run ones) will be closed on all April Sundays except for 29.04! Do your shopping before! By the way, speaking of the last April weekend – it is the period when so-called ‘long weekend’ starts in Poland. Expect the trains, buses and hotels be overcrowded, and remember to book in advance!
People like you Orange Umbrella tours
We had a great time with Peter who was our guide! We heard interesting stories and learned history you dont get to read in a book! They are a doing a great job, congratulations!!!
These tours were excellent. We went on two when in Warsaw and each one was informative and helped us to inverted the complexities of the city. Tours are given by guides who are passionate about showing you b the city.
I’ve been on many free walking tours all across Europe and today’s Old Town tour with Goska was by far one of the best I’ve been on! Much better than the one in Krakow I did a few days ago with the main competitor.
Goska was a very informative guide and in contrast with other guides, it didn’t sound like she was just going through all her facts and knowledge, but really brought it like if you are visiting the Old Town with a local that is your friend. She also brought pictures to illustrate her stories and added some personal notes.
I highly recommend the free tours with Orange Umbrella and very much looking forward to the Jewish Warsaw tour I’m going to join tomorrow.
This tour was really very interesting. In a short time we saw a lot of interesting places. Guide was amazing:) Definitely recommend!:)
We had a great time in Warsaw with the help of Orange Umbrella. We recommend it to everyone! Thank you
We want to thank to our wonderful guide Gośka!(we’re hoping that we spelled it right:)) we went on excursion about World War II and it was astonishing. Such culture, such dedication of poles to it’s history and country itself. Excursion was interesting and beneficial, didn’t took too long time. Would reccomend to our friends.
Went to three tours with Orange Umbrella guys: Old Warsaw, WW2 and Alternative Praga.
Beata was our guide in old town and WW2 and she had lots and lots of stories to tell about the city and its history.
Peter guided our 2 h trip to Praga district. His english was really good and easy to understand. All in all the tour was nice, but I was hoping to hear more stories from alternative point of view. I felt that this tour did not match so well with description.
Don’t miss the opportunity to join one of the Walking Tours – They’re great. So informative and so enlightening. We would never miss an opportunity to have a walkabout with them. They really add to the enjoyment of your holiday.
It was a bit rainy at the day when I took this tour so only 6 people came, but that made tour very engaging. Begining was a bit boring, but don’t judge book from its cover. Later tour became more and more interesting. Anna did very good job and told many interesting and unexpected facts. She also answered many questions from the group. After this tour I went to Copernicus Science Centre which is very interesting place. But when I was there I felt that tour was so good and I would better go on one more tour than this centre. Big thanks to Anna. Dziękuję bardzo 🙂
I loved my experience in Warsaw, specially the tours from Orange Umbrella! Beata is an amazing guide, intelligent, funny, and why not say it: beautiful! i would totally recommend it to my friends and if i ever come back to Warsaw, would definatelly attend the others tours! Keep the amazing job!
