Our guide Ewa gave us a very impressive introduction to the city of Warsaw and the ghetto. We not only got to know the places and the history but also learned a lot more, for example about the time after 1945 until today. We also found it very good that the story was only told in black and white. There was also something in between with Germans and Poles. In any case, such a blatant tragedy must not be repeated in Germany or Poland. For us, the 4-hour tour was very good - also to learn to appreciate Poland

Our tour guide Ewa was absolutely fantastic! On time, well prepared - this was how we were able to use the three hours effectively. Ewa explained and showed us everything in great detail, told the story vividly. Would recommend this tour (and our guide) again and again. It was absolutely worth it.

We had our private tour of the Warsaw Ghetto with Marcin. He was a super good guide who spoke very good German. we could understand him very well and he was able to answer all of our questions. We had a lot of fun with him and it was an all-round successful day! Thank you very much Marcin!
