Exploration tour through the district of Praga - authentic and legendary

Discover Praga, Warsaw's other face and the most exciting trend district at the moment! Located on the right bank of the Vistula and just a few minutes from the old town, Praga differs significantly from Warsaw west of the Vistula. This district, characterized by trade and industry, was once a melting pot of cultures, where Christians, Jews and Orthodox lived peacefully together. On the 2-hour city tour you will explore the former multicultural, as well as today's Praga on the move. Hardly destroyed in the Second World War, Praga was neglected in the post-war period. Here you can get a good impression of what Warsaw looked like before the war. Experience the multicultural Praga up close!

Our tour guide Wojtek was extremely knowledge about Warsaw and Polish history generally. His use of an iPad for showing images, including documents, was effective, and he always welcomed our questions. Indeed, Wojtek was so enthusiastic for the tour that he spent an extra our with our group. The Polin Tour with Wojtek was a great experience--highly recommended.

My wife and I travel extensively. As such, we have hired guides on every continent (aside from Antarctica) and Marzena is truly among the best we've encountered. Why? She is reachable and responsive leading up to your tour. She is flexible and works around your schedule to ensure your desired effects are being met. For us, we had both specific requests/requirements/desires that were all met and as important she facilitated other guides when she wasn't available. That last piece cannot be overlooked. We definitely wanted to visit Wolfsschanze and Mauerwald which is a 3.5-4 hour drive north of Warsaw. We wanted to pre-arrange a guide versus hoping to arrange for one on site and Marzena ensured we had a good one (Czeslaw Puciato). She spent quite a bit of time (hours) expediting and affecting multiple arrangements for us all without a complaint or demanding additional payment which she was surely owed. Regarding the benefit of her caring and helping prearrange a local guide, when we arrived at Wolfsschanze the road was torn up and the entrance where we intended to meet Czeslaw was blocked. While we found a way to access we weren't sure he would be there and we emailed Marzena who was "on it" and helped affect our meeting up. In closing, I realize the reason people hire guides is for expertise - again Marzena is top of the class. She is proficient in English and 100% easy to communicate with and carry on specific/detailed conversations. That's critical when you want to "deep dive" into subjects and issues you are experiencing. Bottom line - you cannot find a better overall experience in the guiding game than Marzena...I'm sure of it.

We arranged Marzena of Polin Tours to give us two private tours--a tour of the Treblinka Extermination Camp (about a 90-minute drive from Warsaw) and a walking tour of the Jewish sites of Warsaw another day. (Early October 2018) She was an excellent guide. I highly recommend her!! She picked us up at our apartment and drove us to Treblinka, explaining the history and answering our questions. Once on site, she walked through the small museum with us, pointing out various items. Then she walked with us to the adjacent site of the camp, explaining the symbolism of the memorials and pointing out things we never would have seen/noticed on our own. It was at our relaxed pace, and there were fewer than a dozen tourists on site, so we felt like we had the place to ourselves. She never rushed us, let us take our time to ask questions and reflect on what we were seeing. It was about a 7-hour day with her. We asked her about her time growing up under Communist rule and she answered frankly about what it was like--all fascinating to us. Another day she provided us with a four-hour driving/walking tour of the Jewish historic sites in Warsaw. We made several stops to see and go inside a "hidden synagogue"; see portions of the Ghetto Wall; visit an historic area where there was a Ghetto footbridge over the street; visit sites where there used to be vibrant Jewish neighborhoods; and more. Again, all at a relaxed pace. She even had a binder with photos to show us what specific sites looked like then to compare to now.

We arranged a private tour of Auschwitz/Birkenau through Polin Tours, and dealt directly with Marzena Świrska-Molenda. Seldom will you find such a dedicated guide who will take the time and effort to meet you on arrival at Warsaw Airport at 06h30 to take you on a guide of the Warsaw Ghetto and surrounds and then take you back to the airport by 10h00 in order to catch the connecting flight to Krakow. The pvt tour for the day was exceptional, and the chaffeur and on site guide were consumate professionals, thank you Marzena and your team!
