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.

Description

Feel the spirit of communist Poland while cruising around Warsaw in the iconic automobile of the 70s and 80s – the Fiat 125p. You’ll be chauffeured by a professional driver-guide who’ll introduce you to the city’s communist past.

During the journey your guide will share entertaining facts about life under communism, how things have changed and what it means to be Polish today.

You’ll visit the Palace of Culture and Science – the hulking symbol of communist Warsaw – and learn about its construction, hear some anecdotes and discover why it’s called Stalin’s “gift”.

Afterwards, you’ll see Stalin-era architecture at the Constitution Square and visit a unique communist-era housing district. You’ll also see the amazing Ministry of Agriculture in the communist ministerial district, hear fascinating stories about the headquarters of the communist party and learn what it’s used for now.

Later on, you’ll get to have some pierogi or another meal at one of the city’s milk bars – communist-themed restaurants that serve traditional homemade cuisine.

During the journey, you’ll be treated to a shot of the best traditional vodka.

You’ll be driven back to your hotel after the tour.

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.
