Very good guide, older gentleman with excellent sense of humour, great English and very interesting. We were driven around in a minibus but got off often to walk to places of interest, it gave us a quicker view of the city which was essential as we only had 2 days in Warsaw.

This is a hard tour to rate the tour itinerary was 5, but the tour guide was 1 so we averaged them for an overall 3. The tour covered the most important Warsaw sights and had a very nice walk through the Old Town section. As for the tour guide, as an analogy I will use that if you asked him for the time, you would get 30 minutes on how his watch works, but at the end of the 30 minutes you still wouldn't know the time! However, I recommend this tour as it is a good way to see Warsaw quickly and you hopefully will get a different guide.

I guess we were really lucky in having Agneska all to ourselves. She was delightful and very knowledgeable in giving us areal feel for the city of Warsaw and it's history. The mix of touring by bus and on foot was just right, enabling us to see parts of the city that I am sure we would have missed had we not opted for this tour.

The guide was great! He could speak many languages, knew things from all over the world and could explain everything about Warsaw and its history. He was always making sure that everyone was together and comfortable. I would definitely recommend this tour for people who want to know the culture and history of Warsaw.

This tour gave you a great overview of Warsaw and the tour guide was very knowledgeable and interesting. There were several opportunities to get off the bus and explore further, which gave you a much more in-depth view. A word of warning to those who have difficulty walking - there were two 45 minute walks during this tour, which were at a reasonably slow pace but may cause issues for those who can't walk that far. I have a back condition and was a bit concerned when this was mentioned, as I had thought it was a bus tour but in actual fact I was fine on the walks and the tour guide only took it as fast as the slowest person so you didn't miss out on anything. The first walk was around Lazienki Park which was beautiful and well worth a visit, including the monument to Chopin and the Palace on the Water. The second walk was around the Old Town which again was lovely and definitely worth seeing. You could stay in the Old Town at the end of the tour rather than return to your hotel and if the weather had been better this would have been nice to do. However, on our tour there was torrential rain for the latter half, so most of us chose to go back to the hotel! You also got the chance to get off the bus at the monument to the Jews in the old Jewish ghetto, which was very moving and the tour guide was excellent in describing the horrors of war for this population. The tour gave a really good insight into the history of the city and the country itself. Overall, I would highly recommend this tour for those new to Warsaw who want a good overview of all the key sights, so you can decide what you want to explore further yourself at a later time. Moreover, the pick-ups and drop-offs at the hotel were very smooth and even though I was one of the first pick-ups you didn't feel like you had to wait for your tour to start until everyone was there, as the tour guide started explaining things and pointing out interesting sights immediately.
