The must-do tour takes in the city’s pristine Old Town, former Jewish ghetto and sites linked to Warsaw’s old communist regime like the Palace of Culture and Science. Hear stories of World War II, and then see how the communist party left their mark on the city. The itinerary is flexible and tailored to your interests, so if there is something you want to see more of, just let your guide know!

Meet your private guide near Warsaw Central Station, and then set off on your 3-hour walking tour of the city. As you amble through the streets, your guide will talk to you about Warsaw and also about the things that what you want to see in the city. Much of Warsaw was destroyed during World War II, but the resilient Varsovians rebuilt it all, including the 13th-century Old Town. While the buildings appear old, they are all relatively new, having been built after WWII. Many of Warsaw’s trophy sites can be found within the Old Town’s defensive walls, and your guide will show you them while walking around. Amble through Castle Square, and then admire the Royal Castle – an identical copy of the original 14th-century building. Stop for photos in Old Town Square with its Renaissance and Baroque-style buildings, and take a walk around the Mermaid – a monument that symbolizes the city. Marvel at Warsaw’s cathedral and take photos of Poland’s Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Pilsudski Square.Continue walking around the city’s former Jewish ghetto, seeing sights such as the Ghetto Heroes Monument and the marble Umschlagplatz Monument – a poignant memorial commemorating the Jews that met their fate in Treblinka concentration camp. Learn of the chilling fates of the Warsaw Jews, and then take a look at the neighborhood’s last remaining synagogue. After WWII, Warsaw endured some 40 years of communist rule – another fascinating layer of the city’s history. See Stalinist structures while learning about the culture and day-to-day life of the Varsovians during the communist era. Pose for photos in front of the Palace of Culture and Science (PKiN building) from where the party once ruled, and then start to work your way back to the start point. Say your goodbyes to your guide as you finish your tour near Central Station.
