Warsaw: Off the Beaten Path 4-Hour Tour Reviewed by Liv, 02/07/2017

Excellent guide with fantastic knowledge and a good sense of humour

One of the best guides I have hadin any city. He had good answers to all questions and had a very wide knowledge not only in Polish history but also in the history of other countries in Europe which made him able to link what we saw to the history of the counries of the participants of the group (Sweden, Italy, Norway etc) He also had, not least important, a good sense of humour :-) Higly recommended!

Warsaw: Palace of Culture & Science Tour Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer, 01/18/2017

Comprehensive and informative, helpful guide

Getting on the tour went easily, didn't even need to pull out the pre-paid ticket. Bus is well-sized, guide was well-informed and supportive even though my travel group had to slow down and eventually depart early from the rest of the tour group. Perhaps it would've helped if we had known the bus/walk ratio beforehand. Since we had the tour in Russian I was left wondering a bit whether it was slightly more concentrated on Russian buildings in the city or was it just a coincidence.
