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.
I love Orange Umbrella! We lived in Warsaw for more than 2 years and often used or recommended these tours to friends and family members. The guides are always locals and friendly. They provide a unique perspective about Warsaw’s history! Definitely recommended! And nice to give a tip at the end for the guide’s good work!
Anna and Gawel are very prepared and friendly guides. The tours we have followed («old town» and «jewesh warsaw») have made us discover and appreciate the many events, aspects and curiosities of the city to which we are fond of. Walking along the streets with their guide is a real pleasure and a real discovery. We highly recommend it for the quality of the guides and the knowledge you can acquire
We did three tours with them — old town tour with Beata, Jewish heritage tour with Gawel, and alternate Warsaw with Joanna who took us to Praga. They were all amazing, full of wonderful stories about Warsaw. No stop at a cafe or souvenir shop and buy this or that – just content based tour that we really enjoyed. Very smart way to see and learn about Warsaw. And, getting some local tips. Highly recommended!!
For the Warsaw at war free orange umbrella walking tour we had Piotr and he was fabulous. The passion that he spoke of in the pride for him to be Polish made me proud to be in an ancestral country. He let us take our time and gave us a few moments when it was overwhelming and sad like at the ghetto wall. Could’ve listen to him all day. So interesting so passionate about everything that he was teaching us. Read the trip advisor reviews before I went I was so excited to have Piotr. He lived up to their reviews. And exceeded it in some areas. I gave 100 zlotys as a donation. Well worth it thank you Piotr also went on the old town walking tour. Both tours were fabulous and incredible amount to history in these countries that needs to be shared. Polish people are very proud of people and it shows in everything they do.
We did 3 tours with Orange Umbrella. They were all excellent. Our first tour of Old town was with «Kate». She has a wonderful understanding of her subject matter. Next, we did a tour with Gawel who was very informative. I think that tour was about WWII. And then, we did a tour about the Jews in Warsaw again, with Kate. I highly recommend this tour company. It was recommended to me and I’ll pass on the recommendation.
I’m so glad I decided to do the old town walking tour, Gosia was a fantastic guide. Either you travel alone or in a group these walking tours are really a must do in Warsaw. I learned so many things about the city, its history, the habits and so many more… Everything is totally different when you see it with a local’s eye, I was so excited that I also had the alternative Praga tour, which was great as well! I had so fun! Thanks a lot Gosia and Piotr, keep on doing this excellent work!

A ‘must’ for the short-time visitor to the city. My wife and I are sure that all the guides from Orange Umbrella are good at their roles but felt extremely lucky to have had Beata as our guide – she was excellant.
The morning tour of the Old Town was so good – with local knowledge plus the history – put-over so well that we joined the later afternoon tour with the same guide. The afternoon tour, titled WWII in Warsaw, maintained thesame high standard. We were extremely grateful.
The tours are billed as ‘free’ and they are, but we beieve that a tip at the end should be measured to the satisfaction gained.
Well-done Beata. A gem.
Went on several, all amazing! Would recommend 100% if you want to learn and see the city.
The guides are great.
