Overall rating

4.6 / 5

based on 869 reviews

Starts off a little slow but gets very interesting as you progress through the day, I highly recommend ending the day in the cellar pub in the Old Town, grabbing a bite to eat off the square (really amazing food and not at all expensive) for lunch is a great idea.

This is a really a great excursion to go on while visiting Warsaw, with pre- and post-War history and architecture around every corner. The historical bus you ride enhances the experience, too.

Guide and drivers were amazing but the price is too high (I made a comparison with the price of everything included and this is very very overrated). But lived the experience anyway

Wonderful guide - informative and amusing . A great overview of the city.

Fabulous experience. Clean bus. And great tour Guide.
