The first half of the tour covers the Royal Route, which is the most elegant Warsaw street. Here in the 17th and 18th century wealthy noblemen were building their luxurious residences, powerful religious orders were erecting their baroque churches, here in the 19th century Chopin lived and Marie Curie was studying, here the most important events in Polish post-war history were taking place. In the second half of the tour you will explore the 20th-century city centre with the most iconic Warsaw building: the Palace of Culture, the famous gift from Stalin to the People’s Republic of Poland, aimed to reshape Warsaw’s historical city centre and give Warsaw a new communist identity.
To ensure safe distance and quality expierience our groups are limited to 20 people.
Tour through Warsaw under the expert guidance of our guide Gawel along many sights and full of many facts.
Starting point is at a place where you don’t expect it (a bit in the back), but the tour takes you past the highlights of the city.
I very much enjoyed this tour with Katie last Tuesday (sorry, I don’t remember her Polish name). She had lots of things to tell and was able to transmit why she has fallen in love with her city. She also was very helpful with all kinds of questions. Great experience with fabulous guide!
Erik was an awesome guide. His English was easy to understand and he was full of interesting information. The your did not feel rushed and gave me a great overview of the old and new city. I definitely recommend every new visitor take this tour.
I went on the Best of Warsaw and Jewish Warsaw tours. Both were informative and engaging, just all around excellent!
A walking tour through all the historic stages of Warsaw, from it’s foundation until nowadays. The experience is highly recommendable since our guide, Peter, born and raised in the city, was able to transmit us this great history lesson from the point of view of a regular citizen. He is a really nice guy, ready to answer all our questions. We highly recommend spending this 2 hours with him.
The Best of Warsaw tour takes approximately 2 hours.
