Our guide Jacek arrived at our hotel at the pickup time. He was very chatty and friendly as we drove to Treblinka. Once at the Treblinka site we first looked around the museum and our guide explained the displays, their significance and then organised for us to watch some short films. Jacek waited for us outside, allow my wife and I to take our time and not feel rushed. We then walked to the camp. Jacek was constantly explaining what we were seeing, marked by various stones or displays. We felt that having Jacek describe, highlight the horrors that occurred at Treblinka helped to make our visit extra special, going above and beyond to make sure we had a great trip. On the way back we stopped at the restaurant for lunch which was delicious. Strongly recommend.
Enjoyed the early morning tour with Martin as our guide visiting Warsaw Old Town, ruins of Jewish Ghetto and the East Bank of the river Vistula for a brief touch of authentic historical buildings that survived a terrific war destruction. We opted for the Praga District over Park Łazienki as we had less than three hours for our tour. Our guide, Martin, gave an informative talk in perfect English at each stop. He used laminated photos to show how some of the sites used to look like before the war. A hidden yard with a Jewish shrine in Praga was a gem - I'd never found it on my own. Driving around in the retro Fiat was fun and a great way to plan for future visits to Warsaw. Thank you for a memorable tour!
My wife and I arrived 30 min. early. We were nicely greeted at the door than offered juice and water. Show started on time. What an excellent experience was the Chopin concert. The pianist (Wojciech Pyrc) filled up our ears and souls with music and joy. Acoustic in the concert room was very good. At the have time we were offered some of (old polish recipe) honey drink. Very good and tasty. We will recommend this concert very much.
The tour is useful to orient you to many of the major sites in Warsaw. Our guide, Gawel, gave an informative talk in Polish and English at each stop. He used laminated photos to show how sites previously looked. Bikes we're good quality. However, the back brake is applied by peddling backwards and the front brake is on your left.
Visiting Treblinka was a very somber, but also important, experience. Gosia from Warsaw Sightseeing is a very knowledgeable and friendly guide, and I enjoyed both the tour and our conversation.
