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

You’ll see Stalin-era architecture at the Constitution Square, hear fascinating stories about the headquarters of the communist party and learn what it’s used for now.

Such a fun tour
Although it was super hot outside (and inside...) when we took the tour, we had a lot of fun! We even had to push the car at one point, which made it feel just like in the Soviet Union! I can recommend this tour to anyone who wants to have an exciting stay in Warsaw.
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.
Really fun!
Really interesting learning about Warsaw, our guide Paulina was really really knowledgeable about every aspect of the architectural history. Would heavily recommend.
Unique and charming tour of Warsaw's past
Our tour with Konrad was incredible. While the tour is normally self driven, I had no idea how to drive stick, yet Konrad offered to teach me in the parking lot. This didnt pan out all that well, so Konrad just drove the fiat, which in all honesty was for the best in the pouring rain, in a country and city I did not know. Konrad was very funny and informative about communism and its affects on Warsaw, so if your into that, and driving vintage cars, this is the perfect tour for you!
Excellent way to experience Warsaw
We had a great time with Konrad, who took us on a tour of the communism era history of Poland and Warsaw. He was polite, interested and well prepared. It was a pleasure to talk with him. The little Fiat was amazing fun to drive, I'd forgotten how much effort steering an old car can be! Taking the tour in a symbol of the era adds real depth to the experience. Excellent!
Perfect tour
We did a tour in a small Fiat that brings back memories to a lot of polish people. The nice thing of the tour is that you are allowed to drive yourself. Our guide Marcin sat in the back and gave directions. He guided us to nice places around the city where we stopped and took a walk. Nice touch was to see some orginal architecture from the jewish getto. Marcin was an enthousiastic guide that worked really hard to make us feel comfortable and provide us information about warsaw's history. Nice extra service was that he took pictures of us which he later sended by email. These make a nice memory to a PERFECT experience!
Amazing Tour
We took a 3 hour self drive tour with Konrad. My partner wasn't too keen on the idea of a tour around Warsaw with me driving but by the end of it we were saying it was the best part of the holiday. The car is hilarious and you don't need to worry too much about driving around the busy roads as it seemed like Konrad did his best to keep us away from the worst roads. We were asked which kind of tour we wanted as there was an option of a few, we said we wanted a mix and that's exactly what we got. You get photos taken as you go around and these are brilliant, we love our photos with the little car. If/when we return to Warsaw I could definitely see us doing this tour again but seeing different sites as it really was that fun (and we aren't your average tour goers). The tour was excellent, the car was hilarious and Konrad had excellent knowledge.
Great way to explore the city!
We enjoyed this tour a lot. Driving around Warsaw in the old cars was a fun experiences. As we had already walked around the city center the previous day we chose the Communism Tour to see some other parts of Warsaw. Konrad our guide was both informative and entertaining. Definitely recommendable!
