Recommended length of visit: More than 3 hours
Owner description: Modern sightseeing with a guide doesn’t need to stress on tonnes of names, dates and details that eventually you’ll never remember and just make you feel worn-off. It’s more about selecting the useful information, experiencing and understanding the city and getting to know the key facts that lead to conclusions. Remembering surprising curiosities and unusual stories. What makes our tours special are our guides’ personalities, that ensure a true contact with our individual travellers as well as groups in a friendly, cultural and knowledgeable way. Our tours are not what you would call “regural” ones – we combine history, local cuisine, personalized approach and unique transportation with our communist minibuses which is far more effective than strolling the city on your own.

I really enjoyed the evening trip with Vojta. There was just our group of three, plus Vojta driving and giving a commentary along the way. We learned some interesting things about the city, and got to see some cool drinking spots that wouldn't otherwise have found by ourselves. It was good value and I would definitely recommend it as a thing to do on a first night in Warsaw.

We were so lucky to find these tours and liked the first one so much we managed to squeeze in another one before we flew home. I feel I learned so much more about this wonderful country and its difficult history than I would have any other way. We had Marcin himself as our guide for both and he makes the tour so informative and enjoyable, and absorbing. We were able to ask him all kinds of questions as we drove around the city in the little red fire truck and over our vodka shots in Praga. I don't usually ever do city tours but this was very different and personalized, especially the food tour which included a market. Marcin himself is a lively, bright, interesting person and you can see that his work means a lot to him. Without him, we would only have experienced the surface of Poland and Warsaw.

You know that teacher who makes learning fun.....!
Well, that was Marcin at Warsaw Behind the Scenes. We learned so much about the history of Warsaw and Poland, and we had so much fun! It was cold and rainy, but the 4 hour private walking / driving tour was so much fun from start to finish. It was a highlight of our trip!! Thank you Marcin!

Marcin's great strength is his ability to not only describe events but to put them in context. He helped us to understand what it is like to be a country at the 'cross-roads' of Europe, where events in neighbouring states can have such a profound impact.

As it was hot on the day of our visit (35 c) we used Marcin's air conditioned car and as promised we saw parts of Warsaw and Prage that are missed by the normal tours. He described the events leading up to WW2 from a Polish perspective, the occupation from 1939 to 1945 and communist rule together with a few observations about Poland's present situation!

Our food stop was a small cafe in Prage where we tried excellent food served in glass jars and a glass of unforgettably delicious/strong local vodka.

In summary, if you want to 'understand' Poland rather than just see it, there is no better choice than Marcin.
