    What to Expect
    Meet your guide in Castle Square to begin your walking tour and set out to explore Warsaw’s UNESCO-listed Old Town. Start by admiring Sigismund’s Column, the 72-foot (22-meter) tall monument at the heart of the square, then follow your guide to landmarks like the Cathedral of St. John and the Warsaw Barbicane. Stroll around the lively Market Square, marvel at the striking red façade of the Royal Castle, and pose for photos by the Mermaid Monument.

    Then, hear more about Warsaw’s fascinating history as you visit Krasińskich Square, the site of the Warsaw Uprising; Pilsudski Square, home to the Tomb of Unknown Soldiers; and Krakowskie Przedmieście Street, where the Presidential Palace and the University of Warsaw are located.

    After three hours with your guide, either end your tour in the Old Town or continue your explorations on a 5- or 7-hour tour (depending on option selected).

    5-hour tour

    After a short bus or tram ride (transport costs not included), arrive in Grzybowski Square, at the heart of the former Jewish Ghetto. As you follow your guide around the historic district, hear more about Poland’s rich Jewish heritage, discover how it was the largest Jewish Ghetto in Europe during the Nazi era, and learn more about the atrocities of WWII. Finish your 5-hour tour looking out over the city from the viewing terrace of the Warsaw Palace of Culture and Science, Poland’s tallest building.

    7-hour tour

    Spend your final two hours exploring the magnificent Lazienki Royal Park. Wander around the exquisite royal gardens, see Frederic Chopin’s monument and the Palace on the Isle, then admire historic buildings like the Old Orangery and Amphitheatre.

    Enjoyable experience and a good way to see the city. Having had another tour the day before this one was altered to suit us and not to duplicate those parts of the cities history we had already discovered.

    We only had two days in Warsaw and Kasia made sure we saw it all in 7 hrs! I’ve never had such an amazing tour guide that made the tour so personal and got to know you. We took breaks when we wanted to, looked further into sites we wanted to know more about, and so on. Very nice

    When Marek met us, he asked if we were Jewish. We then spent a large part of the day learning about and seeing Jewish Warsaw. We saw all of Warsaw, but learned most about what we wanted to. We were only in Warsaw for the day, and we saw all there was to see thanks to Marek.
