Warsaw city private tour


See the highlights of Warsaw during a 4 hours tour - with me, by car and walking.

Warsaw is a green and clean town, so you will be taken to Lazienki Park (18th century) where you can stroll and admire palaces and pavilions hidden in thick greenery. Drive along Royal Route, almost completely rebuilt after WWII in its previous historical design. Walk in Warsaw Old Town, also rebuilt to its previous style, and put on the UNESCO cultural heritage list as the only place not original but reconstructed. See the house where Madame Curie was born, and where Chopin lived. We will also visit what was once the ghetto area.

With me you will see great contrasts of pre-war Warsaw, districts kept in socialistic-realistic style and recently constructed modern downtown called sometimes Warsaw Manhattan. And what about Warsaw Prague? This is how we call part of Warsaw on the right bank of the Vistula river, where a traditional bazaar still functions and where the famous film "The Pianist" by Polanski was made.

Itinerary

After meeting you at the airport we shall drive along historical part of the city: Royal Route, where you can see former palaces, some turned into embasies, we stop at the monument to Frederic Chopin and former White House from 18th c, view Polish parliament, enter Lazienki Park with summer residence of our last king (picturesque Palace on Water) and other palaces and pavilions. Come back to the town to cross Vistula River to see National Stadium at Prague site, old streets remembered from famous films, then to see Unknown Soldier's Tomb, where changing the guards takes place every hour, Great Theatre (opera and ballet house), then former Jewish ghetto quarter with its memorials, and finish at Old Town (the UNESCO site) painstakingly rebuilt after WWII.
