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.

Description

Discover communist Warsaw while driving an iconic car of the 70s, 80s and 90s – a Fiat 126p, also known as Toddler.

The tour begins with a quick driving lesson at the Palace of Culture and Science – the hulking symbol of communist Warsaw. After your lesson, you’ll find out how it was constructed and learn what Stalin had to do with it.

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.

Admire the architecture of the nearby communist ministry buildings, and get to know the communist ideas for the new, reconstructed Warsaw.

Gaze at the communist-era housing blocks of the Muranów and Mariensztat districts as you cruise around the streets, feeling the atmosphere of communist Warsaw.

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

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.
Top tour!
Very nice tour, well organised and Artur was a very good guide!

Martin brought a deep understanding of history together with wonderful warmth and humour to increase our connection with the villages, forest and sanctuaries to the west of Warsaw. It was very flexible as a tour and Martin concentrated in our interests. He was a great host.
