The core idea of Warsaw Behind the Scenes is to let you experience the true city, to understand and to get to know it. Our friendly and easygoing guide will take you through times: you'll explore pre-war streets as well as monumental communist squares. This is not a regular tour, so we'll take you to the local people's bar to let you taste our traditional and delicius Polish food. At the end we'll relax in a cool pub or have a picnic at the riverside. Our tours are highly individual and flexible. This is not a bus city tour or a free walking tour, this is almost like a private tour!

I suppose the novelty of being driven around in a communist era Tuk (minibus) was what initially attracted us to this tour but it will be Marcin's in-depth knowledge of Warsaw that will stay with us. Marcin has a real knowledge of the city - its past and present. He's really good company and we enjoyed the fact that it... More

Amazing value for money. Lots of historic information, lots of time to anwser questions. A nice lunch, our tour was extended because our guid was telling so passionate about the various different locations. Highly recommend it to gain more knowledge about WWII and the sovjet time after that.

The tour lasted four hours and took in hundreds of years of history. The tour visits a large variety of places on both sides of the river, from palaces to backstreets, all exploring the history and culture of Warsaw. Our guide Art knows the city inside out and gave us more information than we could have got anywhere else. For... More

Firstly I would like to thank our guide & driver Marcin for such a friendly, humorous, interesting & informative tour on our first visit to Warsaw. My girlfriend & I were the only two people on the tour that evening but that for us made it all the more special. It turned into our own little personal tour & at... More

Suggest you engage with Marcin as soon as you start , he is very interested in people and will tailor the tour to suit guests. Brilliant excursion. Marcin's knowledge of the history of this city is brilliant, rattling around in the Cold War van gives you a feeling of how grim the recent history has been. Considering this Marcin is... More

Fantastic way to see Warsaw and better understand Poland. Educating, interesting and entertaining. We got to see some of the main sites as well as a few hidden gems. Our guide was Artur; pleasant and very knowledgeable. I am originally from Poland and even for me, this was a real treat. Totally made our trip!

Thank dubowicz
