Orange Umbrella Guide
Are you coming to Warsaw in January? Gaweł has few tips for you.
- For winter activities come to one of Warsaw ice rinks, set in different urban sceneries, all beautifully illuminated in the evening. Settings are as diverse as Warsaw is: you can ice skate around the mermaid statue in the centre of the Old Town, in front of the communist Palace of Culture and Science, or even in the field of the biggest and most modern Polish stadium – Stadion Narodowy. (All ice rinks are equipped with ice skate rentals).
- To restore energy after ice skating go to the famous Wedel chocolate house for a cup of thick hot chocolate. Even though today you will find stores bearing Wedel signature all around the city (including one in every major shopping mall), head to their oldest still existing shop situated in elegant interiors of original 19th century house in Szpitalna street. The company, currently one of the most recognized Polish brands, was set up by Karol Wedel in 1851 in Warsaw. For Polish people Wedel products, such as Ptasie Mleczko, Torcik Wedlowski or their traditional bitter-sweet hot chocolate are as important as Ferrero’s Rafaellos or Kinder Bueno are for Italians.
- What can you do in the Park during the winter? Well…when the sun sets behind thick clouds and barren trees disappear in the dark the magic happens in the most beautiful Warsaw Park Lazienki– impressive illuminations in shape of 19th Varsovians are turned on. The light will guide you to the most spectacular place in the park – the Palace on Water, summer residence of the last Polish King, also magically illuminated on winter evenings.

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.
