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!

We had a great tour with Marcin. His passion for Warsaw and knowledge made the experience extremely enjoyable. We didn't go into many of the sites we visited and this meant we got to see and experience a larger range of places. Lunch in Praga was excellent as was the visit to the pastry shop - delicious! It created richer... More

Information levels tailored to our group of men. A good run round the sites, and the all important history and personal perspective provided. Excellent lunch. Recommended tour. The fire engine was comfy too - a high step in if you have mobility issues though. Well worth the time and tour if you are in town.

This was an absolutely brilliant tour which both my Husband and I really enjoyed. Mark, our guide was friendly, helpful, on-time and very knowledge about his city. It is definitely one of the best tours we have ever done. We started with the Behind the Scenes 4 hour morning tour, and because it was so enjoyable and informative we decided... More

This was a fun and informative tour. Not the usual rush around the well visited tourist sites with crowds of people. We were lucky enough to be the only two on the tour when Marcin picked us up in his Fire Engine red Cult Zuk minibus. We could alter the itinerary to suit our interests if we chose. Marcin is...

I have lived in Warsaw for 4 years, and have done the Behind the Scenes tour myself 4 times, with adults and with children - and sent many other visitors on it. All the guides I have had have been genuinely passionate about Warsaw and its history. They listen to what their guests are interested in, and flex the content... More

Really enjoyed this informative fun trip. Certainly learnt some history and visited parts of Warsaw we wouldn't have found on our own. Lunch was perfect with potato dumplings and a glass of vodka to wash it down with. Mark was passionate about Warsaw and we felt that 😊.

Marek, our guide was amazing! We really did ask a lot of questions and he was so knowledgeable and open. What I loved most is that we felt like we came away with a much more intimate and nuanced understanding of some of Warsaw's history, people, and culture. I give them my very highest recommendation.

Was so pleased we did this tour, rather than one of those large open-top bus type tours you find in most cities! We travelled around Warsaw in a communist-era vehicle in the company of Marek, who took us back in time through the city's 20th century history. We explored the communist period, the heartbreaking stories of the Jewish Ghetto and... More
