Well worth the time, interesting and hard to find places
Feb 2020
My tour was with Pawel and a young woman in training to be a guide. Pawel takes the time to understand your knowledge of the history and your reason for going on the tour. He then caters his information and where you go based on this. There were so many places that would have been near impossible to find without someone as knowledgeable as Pawel. The car was an experience in and of itself. Also, the restaurant for lunch was special and I have already gone back there and will go back at least one more time before leaving Warsaw.

Simply Awesome, Can't afford to miss it!

I rarely ever get to writing reviews online. However, I have to say everyone who works in this company is committed to excellence and customer satisfaction. Martin is a great guy to tour the city with. We had limited time in the city during our transit and he made the best of our time by showing us the Jewish history and also taking us to the old town in the evening. Highly recommended!

Excellent tour, brilliant guide.
This was a fantastic tour for us. Our guide Pawel brilliantly reconstructed what happened to the Jewish people in Warsaw during World War II within the context of Poland’s history before being occupied by both the Germans and the Soviets. He didn’t have a lot to work with, considering nearly every building was bombed to bits after the Warsaw Uprising of 1944. But his tour focusing mainly on the Jewish ghetto, gave us new insight into the horrific events by looking at the few remains of the ghetto walls, surviving structures and many memorials to those who died. Memorable stops included the bunker of Mila 18 and the site of the bridge linking the large and small ghetto featured in the movie, ‘The Pianist’. Pawel is a well travelled young historian who’s incredibly knowledgeable with excellent English. He zipped us around the city in Poland’s ‘up market’ version of East Germany’s Trabant, the locally produced Fiat 125 from the country’s Soviet era. The car wasn’t easy to drive, but Pawel managed it with ease while constantly telling stories about this tragic time. He also took us for authentic Polish lunch in a Soviet era ‘milk bar’ which we enjoyed very much.

Great tour with Martin!
Tour with Martin was very good and you feel how much passion he has about Polish and Jewish history. It was a good mix of the sites, the history and the stories about the Ghetto and the uprising. Don't miss out - it is a very meaningful experience you will never forget. Note: better not to go on Friday afternoon as you miss the synagogue tour and also can't visit the Jewish cemetary.

Wonderful, concise tour of Warsaw's Jewish history
Dec 2019
Martin led me on a very thorough tour of the city's Jewish history. Much of Warsaw was demolished during WWII making specific places/remnants difficult to locate without a knowledgable tour guide. Martin was very friendly, social, and accommodating. I highly recommend the tour. I had only a small amount of time in Warsaw and this tour maximized the time I had which ended at the POLIN museum, another spot I highly recommend! Thank you Martin!!

Our trip to Warsaw was nothing short of amazing and that is definitely due to our incredible guide Martin. He was so knowledgeable, articulate, professional, flexible and above all else personable! We were thrilled to find out that we were spending the next day with him as well. Go to Warsaw... it’s awe inspriring. Tour with Martin... so is he!

November is a great time to visit Warsaw.
Nov 2019
Martin, a 40 (ish) native of Warsaw, promptly presented himself in front of our hotel in a yellow Retro Fiat, as advertised. While the vehicle was fun and a bit whimsical, the tour of the Warsaw Ghetto was a somber experience. This didn't stop Yitzi and I (a Chabad Rabbi) from soaking up Martin's extensive knowledge about Warsaw, the largest Jewish community in Europe pre-WWII.

There was so much information about the history of Warsaw, the role of Jewish history in Warsaw and the events leading to it's destruction imparted to us from Martin, that time (and characters) don't permit a full explanation.

Let's just say it is a fulfilling experience that is worth the price of admission.

Yitzi and I highly recommend the tour.

Brilliant informative tour with Martin, our excellent and knowledgeable guide. We learnt so much and saw things that we would not have have found on our own. It was the best four hours we spent in Warsaw and I cannot recommend this tour enough.
