Quick and fun way to tour the center of Warsaw
I knew I could ride a bike, theoretically, but never actually used it to ride in a city.
What I noticed about Warsaw after spending a couple of days here is that it is a very friendly city for cyclists, safe and adapted for riding. This is why I decided to give it a try and had a very interesting tour across the historical part of the city.
The 3-hour tour will take you to the main landmarks and streets, through parks that have their own stories, to a place with popular cafes and to the bank of Wisła with a wonderful view. The pace of riding was quite easy for me as a beginner. The only hard part was to ride up the hill at the end of the tour, so I rode half the hill and went up by foot the other half. This tour was the highlight of my week in Warsaw, and I'm very glad I found it on this website.

Great time exploring Warsaw and drinking vodka
We had a wonderful time with Paweł exploring Warsaw and getting around in the Fiat. This was the ideal way to explore the city as soon as we got there, to get our bearings and to get out and see a lot in a fairly short period of time. Pawel knew a ton about the city and we enjoyed just spending the time driving around together, learning some history and drinking vodka throughout.

Very nice tour, well organised and Artur was a very good guide!
Warsaw Jewish Heritage Tour in a Retro Fiat
Fabulous experience!
Our train was arriving before our hostel check in but Maria was totally fine with us bringing our luggage, and that set the mood with how incredible she was throughout our whole experience.
We had such a blast! She was informative, casual & really knowledgeable about pierogis! She taught us her grandmothers recipe and let us put our own spin on it (I did a lentil filling with dill flavoured dough; my partner did a beef filling with a paprika flavoured dough). She taught us different techniques on how to fold the dough to give each dumpling its own personality. She taught us how to properly cook, store & recook for when we make them at home. And she also gave us a mini tasting of some local spirits (I forget what they’re called - but they were delicious and paired so nice with our pierogis)!
10/10 would recommend anyone to take this class. Thank you Maria !!!

Awesome Tour and Guide!!
I completely recommend taking this tour whilst in Warsaw. Not only was it great fun driving around in our little blue Fiat 126 but our guide and host, Konrad was exceptional. He must of completed this tour with customers hundreds of times but you never got that feeling. He was engaging, funny and so enthusiastic towards the knowledge he offered whilst we were visiting each site. It's not often that learning about history is so much fun but this was and that's down to Konrad.
The Milk bar we stopped in was also a great experience to hear about how they started and got to taste some traditional pierogi which I have to say was very tasty!
Overall, if your uncertain about paying for this trip then don't hesitate and just book it as you'll be certain to enjoy it!!
Thanks Konrad and thanks Warsaw for such and amazing experience.
Warsaw Communism Tour in a Retro Fiat
Fantastic Class - Maria is wonderful!
My three daughters and I wanted to learn how to make some popular Polish food but without the longer 3-4 hour classes that are offered. Maria's pierogi class was perfect! We had six people in our English speaking class and it was from 10 am - 12 pm. She holds the class in a large room in her restaurant and has everything ready for you. Be ready to knead, roll, and cut dough; prepare various types of filling; and finally, she teaches you different patterns you can make while forming your pierogi. Of course, you get to taste them when you are finished cooking them! My daughters can't wait to return to the U.S. so we can make these at home. We made so many pierogi with Maria that we brought several back to our AirBnB to eat later. I Definitely recommend this experience!

Warsaw Must See Tour
This was just what we were looking for!!! Let's deal with the facts: 4 hours, hotel pick up, roughly 40 euros per person, traditional polish lunch included, incredibly knowledgeable tour guides, vodka shots - what more could you want from a city tour! Konrad and Ralph were just awesome - we visited some key areas of Warsaw that we would not otherwise have seen and all can away w bags more knowledge about Warsaw's history than we turned up with. The cars are a real novelty and really add to the experience of delving into Warsaw's communist past. We cannot thank you guys enough - it really made our trip!

Fantastic few hours
Our guide Simon was absolutely fabulous. He picked us up promptly and the car was great fun. Simons knowledge of the history of Poland and Warsaw was outstanding and his passion for his city and country was very evident. He exceeded his duties as a tour guide he came very prepared with pictures of the historical buildings pre the war. We saw all the sites and more. He educated us not only on the history but the way of life of locals. He was very patient answering all of our questions. He is a great ambassador not only for his company but for his country. We had a fabulous time.

Great tour to learn about the history of the Jewish people of Poland
Marcin picked us up from the hotel and took us on a very thorough and well informed tour focusing on the Jewish history in Poland during WW II. We went to the few remaining homes inner courtyards where we could truly imagine the life of people as the ghetto became more and more crowded. Then we went to the many memorials and landmarks and finally to the cemetery. All the while Marcin was showing us pictures he brought with him and giving us thorough explanations. I would highly recommend this tour. Such a powerful telling of the Jewish people's struggle for survival.

Warsaw Communist Tour
Our guide Konrad collected us from our hotel in a fabulous old Fiat car. We first visited the Palace of Culture where Konrad impressed us with his detailed knowledge of the place. We then travelled across Warsaw looking at many fascinating places from the Communist era and the second World War. We ate a wonderful lunch at a tatty old cafe that we would never have chosen ourselves. They did a great line in Vodka also! The tour was a great experience and value for money. Well done Konrad.

I was in Warsaw for a work trip and had a free Sunday. You can definitely see a lot more on a bike than you can walking. The biking itself was rather easy and laid back. We made many stops along the way, including some Chopin sights, old town, a library, the east side beach, and the stadium. There is one longer break mid-point for refreshments and to walk around the garden/library. I highly recommend this tour to anyone who is comfortable on a bike.
Wow! Warsaw City Bike Tour
Rafal, our guide was terrific!
Knowledgeable and thoughtful, our guide Rafal gave us a comprehensive tour of the Jewish experience in Warsaw including life prior to the WWII, during the Nazi occupation, the Warsaw Ghetto, the Ghetto uprising, the "Great Deportation" and the present day community. For over 3 hours we had a quality educational tour on our first day in Warsaw, providing us with the understanding and meaningful context of the Jewish presence in Warsaw.

This was one of the highlights of our trip to Warsaw. Our guide was informative, knowledgeable and passionate about the city. We got much more of a feel for the city than we ever would from just walking around.

For those who are nervous about biking - the majority of the biking was in parks, cycle lanes and on pavements and all leisurely pace so don't let that put you off.

A brilliant 3 hours!

Informative and Enjoyable
This tour was an excellent introduction to Jewish life in Warsaw before, during and after the Nazi occupation.The tour guide provided a wealth of information and was able to answer all of our questions about the history of Jewish life in the Ghetto. We visited many of the sites that we would have not known about if not for this tour. I would highly recommend this.

An impressive private Tour: Warsaw's Jewish Heritage by Retro Fiat
Our tour guide Marcin was helpful, very knowledgeable and friendly. He really knows a lot of information about the Jewish history and answered all our questions. Marcin picked us up at the hotel and he was a guide who did not look at his watch - he took time for everything. We found the Jewish cemetry the most impressive. We absolutely can recommend this tour!
