I had a 9 hour layover at Warsaw airport. I was picked from the airport and dropped off there after 3 hours. Mary was a delightful person to talk to. We shared our experiences and bonded really well during the tour. I wanted to see the city center which is in the UNESCO world heritage list. I got insights about the place and other monuments during the drive through of the city which would have been difficult to get on our own. I highly recommend this tour.

This was an excellent observational tour of Warsaw with a knowledgeable and gracious guide, offering not only dry facts, but contextual understanding of history of the city and its people, even with insightful references to current realities of life in Warsaw.
