Great excursion

We’ve been to Warsaw before and enjoyed this excursion, because it took us to new places. Theses were destinations That we would have otherwise not have known about or gone to. Our tour guide, Arturs was awesome!

Excellent Adventure by Retro 1950's soviet minibus. The Driver/guide knew the history of the City as he had grown up in the change from Peoples Poland to the Capalist system. There were about a dozen of us in two of these Retro Classics. We stoped for lunch (included in the price) at a real Polish Cafe where we had a Mezze of Tradional Polish dishes to try. This day was very wet and the Van had enough umberellas for all of us.

The guide was entertaining but there were not a lot of sites seen. It was more of a tour where we would stand in the square or building and get a general history lesson as opposed to learning about the significance of the places we were standing and exploring the surroundings.

Very interesting tour where you get a good impression of how Warsaw was during the second world war, and the communist era, as well as what is happening to Warsaw at present. Our guide Mariuz was excellent. We also saw the parts of Warsaw, i.e. Praga, which is away from the beaten path. This trip did not overlap with the normal guided tour of Warsaw that covers the normal tourist areas such as the old town and parks. It is, therefore, a tour that one should do in addition to the other. The bus was rather uncomfortable. A more modern bus would have been nice on such a hot day. However, the tour would certainly have lost some of its charm without the old communist era buss.

This was one our most favorite parts of our trip to Poland! Our teenage boys saw it as the highlight. The tour was entertaining and informative and gave an excellent overview of 20th century history of Warsaw.
