Highly recommend this tour
A tour with in the mini-van is an experience I´d be sorry to miss during a Warsaw visit. We went on a private one and it was fun, interesting and our guide Barek was very knowledgeable about the history of Warsaw and the society and gladly answered any questions we had.

Wonderful tour
Jack provided A wonderful history filled tour through Warsaw today. It was a blast in his throwback communist vehicle. We enjoyed a wonderful lunch at the Milk Bar! Jack even indulge just in some Polish tunes while driving in the car. Highly recommend this tour!

Add it to you "must do" list
We had a great time on a private "BEST OF WARSAW" trip with Barek. He told us about the city with such brilliant insights into the society and culture, history and precent. And what a fun way to do it! I would go so far to include a trip like this on the MUST DO list.

Fun off the beaten path tour
Jazek, our guide was a blast and the tour in the vintage minibus was truly unexpected. We covered a lot of areas and all the while Jazek told stories/history and often he sang to us. Everything from rock and roll to raucous Polish drinking songs. That was worth the trip alone.

Really fun tour, especially because of the great guide
Wow! Fascinating experience riding around in an old minivan with a really funny guide (without trying to be) who seemed more like an absent minded professor intent in giving us the best info possible. The contrasts we saw in Warsaw are thought-provoking, and the restaurant visit felt like an authentic local experience.

Wonderful history lesson in a cool van
I fancied a tour around Warsaw but wondered how to convince my partner to try one, when I spotted this one in a vintage Communist van. As they are a massive fan of vintage vans it was no trouble conceiving him this was the trip for us. We were picked up by Pablo in a pink van from our hotel and had a wonderful few hours touring around the communist sights around Warsaw. Pablo a local, who was a boy during communist rule was amazing and a real insight in to what it was like to live through the period and how things have changed during his lifetime and how things are going to be in the future. He also was kind enough to drop us off where we wanted in Praga. It was a wonderful time and very surprising especially the Scandinavian log cabins village in the centre of the city. It felt like a country hippy paradise in the city.

Amazing guided tour
We were 6 guys from Denmark on this trip. Our guide Arthur was very informative and funny. He took us to places of Warsaw, that we would never have seen on our own. The lunch at a Milk bar is highly recommended and tasted wonderful. Do not miss the chance to go on a trip like this. Thanks to the booking agency and the guide - I hope to see you again some day.

Highly recommended
Not only will you visit areas you might not normally know about or seek out, you’ll go in courtyards and down streets that you didn’t know could be accessed. Our guide, Michal, was informative and funny. He gave a great sense of the transformation of Warsaw before WWII and during and after communism. Milk bar lunch was delicious. And the magic Nysa van is fun!

Great little trip.
Firstly a huge thanks to Adam. Our trip was on the anniversary of WW2 with roads blocked & he could have easily cancelled. He gave me instructions of the new meeting point and was there to meet us. The little Nysa of his, she did some work and needs some mechanical gearbox love..lol. Adam was flexible on the tour and very informative, passionate and friendly about Warsaw History. The lunch was very traditional and overall this tour is well worth it.

Communist tour by Artur was excellent!
My wife and I had the pleasure of joining the Communism tour led by Artur. We happened to be the only people in the morning tour so we were lucky enough to get a very attentive treatment. Artur was very passionate about teaching about Warsaw and it showed during the tour. We had a lovely time and learned a lot. Dziękuje bardzo, Artur!
