This tour was incredible. I had been gone from Poland for about 13 years so visiting it again brought back a lot of memories. Sadly, when I used to live in Poland, I never came to visit Warsaw so when my boyfriend and I had the opportunity to visit the city during our trip, we made sure to do our research on tours, and luckily enough, found this one. Our tour guide Marcin picked us up at the door of our hotel in an old school Communist Era Nysa, one of the few vans that one could buy in Communist Poland for some time. We picked up another group and went to a few different places. The tour consists of driving around, parking the car at some historical point, and the tour guide, in our case, Marcin, explains the history, background, stories, etc, of the city. I learned so much -- as someone who was born in Poland and grew up there for a few years, I had my mind blown by some of the history. Marcin was very knowledgeable and his English was excellent, which was good seeing as how my boyfriend doesn't speak Polish. One of the best parts of the tour was the bar mleczny (milk bar) that we went to for lunch in the Praga section of the city. Going to eat there really brought back a lot of memories for me. Afterwards we had a shot of vodka, enjoyed a beer and Marcin recounted a lot of great stories regarding the city. Finally we went and visited an Old Russian Orthodox church.
It was a great experience, lasting about 4 hours and I would recommend this tour to anyone. It's not just a great tour for Warsaw, but in Poland & Eastern Europe in general.
Side note: don't expect a lot of super touristy things on this tour, like going to Old Town. Old Town, Park Lazienki, Royal Palace -- these are all places in Warsaw you have been told are great and beautiful and yes, you should visit them, but you can do so on your own, without a tour guide. We did this tour because we wanted something non-traditional, off-the-beat, and that's exactly what we got. If you want to see a different side of Warsaw and really learn something interesting, I recommend this tour.
