Warsaw: Chopin Concert in the Old Town
- Duration: 1 hour
Enjoyed the early morning tour with Martin as our guide visiting Warsaw Old Town, ruins of Jewish Ghetto and the East Bank of the river Vistula for a brief touch of authentic historical buildings that survived a terrific war destruction. We opted for the Praga District over Park Łazienki as we had less than three hours for our tour. Our guide, Martin, gave an informative talk in perfect English at each stop. He used laminated photos to show how some of the sites used to look like before the war. A hidden yard with a Jewish shrine in Praga was a gem - I'd never found it on my own. Driving around in the retro Fiat was fun and a great way to plan for future visits to Warsaw. Thank you for a memorable tour!
My wife and I arrived 30 min. early. We were nicely greeted at the door than offered juice and water. Show started on time. What an excellent experience was the Chopin concert. The pianist (Wojciech Pyrc) filled up our ears and souls with music and joy. Acoustic in the concert room was very good. At the have time we were offered some of (old polish recipe) honey drink. Very good and tasty. We will recommend this concert very much.
The segway's were pretty simple to learn and we all felt confident fairly quickly. Paul is very knowledgeable and has a passion for Poland and its history. He is also very fun and understanding of our still learning to ride, and even our need to play around a bit. So much fun!
I enjoyed the tour very much! These company has a great organisation - the guide had raincoats for the group with him, in case it would rain. The tour was great - it includes the famous and important places in Warschau.
It was great tour in Russian. The guide was super polite, intelligent and told me many interesting stories on top of the classical tour. And he replied on all my questions, and usually I have a lot :)
