We booked last minute and and everything went without a glitch. Our guide Marcin was very knowledgeable (he was a history major at the Warsaw University), passionate about his town and very accommodating to our requests. We had a great insight of the WWII Warsaw, Jewish history, transition period and got a taste of a contemporary Warsaw. We saw unique places off the beaten tourist path. Highly recommend!

Description

Your tour begins at the Palace of Culture and Science, one of the best-known landmarks of Warsaw, but only to quickly learn how to drive a Fiat 126p.

Well-prepared, you’ll then set off to a neighbourhood full of wooden houses. This is where the construction workers who built the Palace of Culture and Science lived. You’ll find out what the lives of these workers looked like and what it meant to be a Soviet construction worker.

Afterwards, you’ll drive to the historical Bielany district. This picturesque interwar-era part of the city has gas lanterns (the last ones in Warsaw) and some of the most beautiful examples of modernist architecture.

From Bielany, you’ll travel back to the time when Warsaw was under the control of the Russian Tsars. Here, just by the city centre, you’ll drive past an original 19th-century fortification – the Warsaw Citadel.

Throughout the tour your guide will share entertaining stories about the places you visit and pass.

Please note:
A valid driving license is required.
A security deposit of PLN 500/€125 in cash is required (refunded after the tour).

Tour in a retro Fiat 126p
Such a great way to see the city and all surroundings!
Very intresting history about communism and how it effected Warsaw /from Erik & Cornelia
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 fun, very interesting
A great way to explore the city. Would like to thank our tour guide Marcin, who was very informative and interesting and also made us both feel comfortable driving the car. The car is very easy and fun to drive. The tour teaches you about polish history and shows you historic monuments all over the city. Would definitely recommend, me and my girlfriend had lots of fun.
