On the day of our trip we were met by Mariusz and straight into the van. Our first stop was only about five minutes away and striaght away you knew this person was very knowledgeable and obviously proud of Warsaw.
Instead of just firing information at you he set most things out as a question encouraging us to guess the answers (sometimes our answers were way out ), this helped to get people involved.
The trip is made up of several stops throughout the day (including an old Warsaw street which has half been renovated, a small mock up of an old Polish communist apartment etc).
Our final stop was at a milk bar, these were apparently popular during communist times and unless you speak Polish are difficult to navigate in English so Mariusz orders a sort of tasting menu, some parts tasted better than others.
A good way to see the city and if booked early on your trip you get to know places that you would probably have never noticed, we returned to a couple of the places over the next few days.
Highly recommended. Thanks Mariusz
well organized and they even fixed vegan and vegetarian options during lunch ( which is hard in this traditional type pf polish cuisine)
Would recommend for everyone!
The only comment is the tour was quite hurry because there were only 3 to 3.5 hours, but for the quick look of Warsaw is enough.
