Warsaw Behind the Scenes Tour by retro minibus

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Experience a fascinating history of Warsaw, Polish culture and nowadays life.

Our guide will take you through less known and, in the opinion of our clients, much more interesting and eye-opening sites than typical tours cover. Full history coverage, impeccable approach to data and facts, undiscovered places and people of Warsaw, genuine sites of the city, personalized guide and retro minibus Zuk – all that underlines everything that is so special about this tour. Cover vast parts of history as well as vast parts of town thanks to nice tempo and vintage time machine which makes the experience very authentic. Buildings that survived two world wars, communist era and thirty years of newborn Polish capitalism have shaped modern Warsaw that grew around them. Get yourself involved into a thorough exploration of history, culture and art of this city while still being entertained by stories about places like Palace of Culture and Science, ghetto relics or Praga district.
  • Escape the tourist trail on a small-group tour of Warsaw’s hidden gems
  • Discover Socialist buildings, pre-war streets, the Jewish Ghetto, and Praga
What to Expect
Your guide will collect you from in front of your hotel in a cult Żuk fire van. As you explore Warsaw, journey deeper into Polish history and culture. Learn the heartbreaking tale of Warsaw’s Jewish community at the Jewish Ghetto; discover secret courtyards and Belle Époque streets that survived the ravages of World War II.
Learn about post-War Communist architecture at landmarks like the Palace of Culture and Science before exploring Praga, a once-forgotten district that’s now a hip, creative hub. Along the way, sample Polish food and drink in off-the-path local eateries.

We started about 10am from the hotel pickup and returned just after 1pm so about 3 hours

It is posible to change time or route when you are only ones in tour. But 8AM is scary early 😁

No, I believe that as the tour is pretty comprehensive and a traditional lunch is included, that would not be possible
