What you can expect
An this guided tour of Warsaw’s Old Town, the meeting point is already one of the city’s highlights. Castle Square, where the tour begins, offers a wonderful view of the colourful facades of the town houses and also of the other side of the river with the dominating National Stadium.
After a short introduction about the history of the city and when Warsaw became the capital of the country, the tour continues to the inner courtyard of the royal residence, which is only 100 metres away. The Royal Palace is architecturally part of the entire ensemble of the Old Town and is therefore included in the World Heritage Site of the Old Town.
Then you will walk through Piwna Street, one of the most romantic corners of the Old Town. The city guide will show you narrow alleyways, at the end of which town musicians play and ice-cream sellers offer their wares. You won’t have to flow along with the tourists, because we know our own secret routes that will allow you to enjoy the Old Town to the full.
You will visit St. John’s Cathedral (from the outside), St. Martin’s Church (from the outside), the medieval market square, enter the panoramic platform on the Warsaw “dunghill”, see a tank chain walled into the cathedral, make a wish at the “German” bell, cross the city walls and admire the Barbican, which has also been reconstructed. Finally, the city guide will show you the house where Marie Curie was born before continuing to the last stop – the Warsaw Uprising Memorial. You don’t need any previous knowledge of history – the guide will explain everything in tourist-friendly language.
There are 2 route variants on offer, which you can select in the booking calendar:
short variant: 1 hour for 40 €
long variant: 2 hours for 70 €

Line 15 stops below the Old Town. The station is called Stare Miasto (Old Town).Public bus
The stop is called Plac Zamkowy. Note, however: the Royal Road (Krakowskie Przedmiescie Street) will be closed to traffic from Friday evening to Monday morning during the summer. The buses go around it.
Regardless of which route variant you choose (1 or 2 hours), the route is the same.
The 1-hour tour is naturally less informative. You can see the courtyard of the Royal Castle of Warsaw, Piwna Street, the Cathedral (from the outside), the Panorama Platform, the Market Square, the Barbican and the City Wall, Marie Curie's house and finally the Warsaw Uprising Memorial.
The tour ends at the Warsaw Uprising Memorial. From there it is an 8-minute walk to the meeting and starting point and only 5 minutes to the market square.
