a Private Tour.
Before the Second World War, Warsaw was the second-largest Jewish city in the world. The only place with a larger Jewish community was… New York!
For centuries, Jews played an active role in the city’s life during good times and bad. In the 19th century, Jews joined other Varsovians in their struggles against occupying powers and participated in Polish uprisings. During the Interwar Period, Jewish Warsaw flourished. Hundreds of artists, actors, writers, and journalists called the city home. Its cultural life was incomparable to any other time and place in history.
Learning about the pre-war diversity and richness of Jewish Warsaw helps us understand the scale of the destruction that took place during the Holocaust. But, alongside stories of persecution and death, there are stories of the resilience and unimaginable bravery of those who fought without hope.
The wounds and scars of the Second World War and Holocaust will never heal. But the story of Jewish Warsaw is not only the story of the past, but also the story of today: the young, diverse and energetic Jewish community that optimistically looks to the future.
To discover all of this, just come and join us and be ready for an emotional journey through history!

Lukasz was great! The tour was long and informative. He was easy to understand, enjoyable, and did a great job painting a picture of what Jewish life was like in the Ghetto.
Pedro was our guide and he was amazing. Fully prepared with images, information and maps that helped visualize and understand better what happened during the war. It was basically a history lesson that was more than we expected. Thank you very much Pedro!
We 100% recommend it
This 2 1/2 hour tour was one of the best tours we took in Warsaw. Our guide Andrzej was extremely knowledgeable, gave us detailed information and had a great sense of humor. His English was excellent and he was very easy to hear and understand. The tour started by All Saints Church and took in the Jewish Synagogue and the Jewish quarter before ending near the Jewish museum.
We loved the tour and would recommend him to everybody with interest in the history of Warsaw and/or the WW2.
Ana es una guía maravillosa, se nota todos sus conocimientos y lo bien que lo trasmite. Nos ha hecho ver la historia de la comunidad judía mucho más haya de lo que algunas películas y libros nos han hecho creer.
While the history of Jews in Warsaw is huge, there is almost nothing to show in the tour.
There is a long-long walk in a modern Warsaw, with something lime 2-3 sites to see. Just normal streets. The ghetto was destroyed during the war, so nothing left.
You will not learn anything from this walk.
Even the few ruins left are not really shown during the tour. Not recommended.
