Orange Umbrella Guide
Are you coming to Warsaw in February? Marcin has few tips for you.
- Praga district celebrates its 370th birthday! Form 5th until 22nd February you can expect a lot of attractions on the right bank of Vistula! Some events are exclusively in polish but there are also some English -friendly. You can go for concerts and parties with original Warsaw folk ballads and traditional dances as well as with more modern ones. On Saturdays 10th and 17th February at 11 in in front of St. Florian’s Cathedral I will be there with my Orange Umbrella and I will take you for tour around Old Praga. Don’t miss this opportunity to get out from the city centre to discover local folklore and try some local delicacies like pyzy!
- Warsaw can get dark and gloomy during the winter. That’s why we like so much our winter illuminations. In February there is the last possibility to visit Royal Garden of Light at the Wilanów Palace. On weekends there are special attractions – 3D performances that combine lights, images and sounds are displayed on the Palace facade. Installation is open everyday from 4 pm till 9 pm until 25th February. Regular ticket costs 10 PLN (Monday-Friday) and 20 PLN (Saturday- Sunday). Buses line 180 and 116 course frequently form the Old Town directly to Wilanów. Get off on the last stop.
- The hot beverages season is still on in Warsaw and weather (with temperature slightly above 0 and frequent rain falls) encourages more to pub-crawling than to out doors winter sports. Luckily, in Poland we have hot alternatives to cold beer. Mulled wine seems to be the most popular and in the winter it’s sold in many points around the Old Town. But I’d recommend you look for other alternatives: mulled beer (you will hate it or you will love it!) and intriguing hot drinks based on flavoured vodka (with warm water, fruits and seasoning). If you follow my first tip and you go to Praga, you can’t miss Łysy Pingwin bar – in winter it’s the ‘Eldorado’ of hot beverages offering two types of mulled beer (light and dark), four types of mulled red wine (with different seasoning) four types of mulled white wine and a hot cider. Definitely it will warm you up in February!

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!
Of course it’s not free but you pay how much you think. I was impressed by the nice student guide. He was excited about what he share with us. He was excellent and all of them are. They do an important job.
Myself and my friend went on the tour with guide Beata who was really nice and friendly. The tour was of the Jewish parts of the area and was really informative and interesting. Weather was great which made the tour even better, its a good distance walking so wear comfy shoes. Would recommend just wish we had more time available as I would have liked to have done the WW2 tour also. Thank you Beata.
Me and my boyfriend went to Warsaw for the weekend and we did two different tours – Old Town and Jewish Warsaw. Both guides were very funny and demonstrate great knowledge. They were also helpful after the tours, indicating how can people reach their homes / restaurants / etc.
Our guide, Piotr, was excellent! The 2 hour tour was almost 4 hours. He provided us with shady rest opportunities, photo ops, answers to all questions and personal details from his life. I highly recommend this tour if you want to learn more about the holocaust, Poland, and the Jewish people. Just go to the old town square and look for the umbrella.
I did the Jewish Warsaw tour and would definitely recommend it to fellow travelers. I believe our guide was Magda and she was exceptionally well spoken and knowledgable. The tour covers a broad history of Jewish culture in Warsaw, from early settlements to WWII and modern day. Definitely check out this company!
We did the Jewish Warsaw tour on a freezing cold Saturday afternoon. However, our guide made sure we forget all about the cold and dive into Jewish history instead. The walking helped a lot to get us to warm up and we saw and experienced pieces of Warsaw that we wouldn’t have noticed ourselves. The tour is about 2.5hrs long but really interesting and worth checking out.
