This summer we booked the Warsaw Alternative Tour. And we had a great time. As a coincidence we had the whole red bus for the two of us, so we had a private tour. Fantastic. The tour guide explained a lot and showed us a lot. The food was special and really enough. A perfect tour and we will definitely come back! Thank you!

I had the greatest day with Jan, I really enjoyed the mix of history and his own knowledge about Warszawa. It is definitely not something I could have found on my own. He made me feel so welcomed and comfortable, it was like spending the day with a friend. Thank you so much 🙂 – Caitlin
