What you can expect
On our Must See Free Walking Tour we visit the top 3 attractions of Warsaw: the medieval Old Town, the Royal Route and the modern city centre with the imposing Palace of Culture.
The tour lasts 2.5 hours and offers a complete yet very manageable insight into the city. Numerous aspects are included. History plays an important role, but it will not dominate and weigh you down.
The different facets of Warsaw could not be more different. Boredom is not an option on this tour. There is something for everyone. The diversity makes this tour unique.
In addition to the sights, topics such as the medieval foundation of the city, the Warsaw Uprising, the Jewish heritage, the communist period and modern times are covered.
To conduct such a tour, you need guides with the special experience to put the individual parts together into a meaningful whole, but also the ability not to digress too much. Our guides have years of experience behind them. We meet regularly and hear from each other what could have been done better or what our guests have to say about what we have to offer.

And what else is there?
If you thought that was all, I’m sorry to disappoint you. Of course, there are also tips and recommendations for successful evenings in clubs, a good Polish meal or even museum suggestions.
With this tour, we would like to offer you an all-round package that will prepare you perfectly for the rest of your journey of discovery in our great, but complicated city in 2.5 hours.
