Walking Warsaw is a young company founded in Warsaw in 2017. The idea came from Antoni, who has been a licensed city guide since 2013. What was initially just a sideline developed into a profession and later to a vocation. Over time, not only the experience grew, but also the company itself. A local website was created with the accumulated insider knowledge and experience. Over time, other city guides joined this project. Today, the group offers specially created Free Tours and also private city tours. Walking Warsaw's mission was clear from the beginning: to give guests from all over the world a sense of belonging. The guests should feel at home. To achieve this, it is necessary to reform the old tourism school a little. The result is Tour Guiding 2.0. Dates, names of great personalities and architectural styles should not disappear, but be explained in a tourist-friendly way. The main focus, however, is on the narrative about city life and its inhabitants. It is important to us that something stays in the mind and that the guest, after arriving back home, continues to discover Warsaw, even from a distance. Ideally, he will come back and set off with us again, then to lesser-known corners of the city. If you want to meet Antoni and other like-minded guides in person, don't hesitate to choose one of our Free Tours. You'll recognise us by our orange umbrellas :)

Tour description

No worries! The tour is not a history lecture full of unknown personalities and dates. Nor does it mean that we completely ignore the historical development of Warsaw. Rather, we want to bring our guests closer to the relevant facts and explain them in a tourist-friendly way . But there shouldn't be a lack of humorous explanations about the lifestyle, eating habits, traditions and local character .

If you want to stroll through the Old Town with us, enjoy beautiful views and learn more about the Warsaw Uprising of 1944 , then you've come to the right place.

 On the Free Tour Old Town & more we answer the following questions, among others:

  •  Why is Warsaw the capital of Poland?
  •  Who the hell is Sigismund and why don't Krakóws like him very much?
  •  What makes the old town so special?
  •  Where is the best view of the city from?
  •  Where is the best chocolate?
  •  What is a barbican for?
  •  Why Marie Curie and Chopin were not French and even come from Warsaw

 What is the " more" in this Free Tour?

  •  The fascinating reconstruction history of the Royal Castle and the Old Town
  •  Visiting the New Town
  •  Explanation of the Warsaw Uprising in 1944

 We would be very happy if you chose us! We may not be one of the biggest free tour operators in Warsaw, but our local heritage is our big draw.
