Passion permeates tour
Guide Adam was passionate about Warsaw’s Jewish heritage and showed us the sites that reflected that history, giving context to what we were seeing. It was a meaningful experience.

Warsaw: Everyday Jewish Ghetto Guided Tour with Jewish Cemetery
We had a great walking tour of Warsaw. Our guide was knowledgeable in all aspects of the city. The only thing I would recommend for this tour is also see 14 Waliców Street ghetto buildings. It would have tied up the tour beautifully. None the less, we had a great time

The tour was great with Pawel. He was extremely personable and knowledgeable. We had plenty of time to see everything. On our own after the the tour we went to the Polin Jewish museum which was unbelievable. It was a great day for Jewish history and culture.

Marek was our guide. He was very punctual, thorough and detailed in all the explanations given. He replied to all our questions and curiosities we had. Another good thing was that even if we booked a very early morning tour, they could ccomodate our request. Unfortunately, since we booked the tour on a Saturday morning, we couldn't visit the cimitery and the Synagogue.

There is not much left of the Warsaw Ghetto to see. If you did a tour by yourself and simply read the posted signs you would be very disappointed. However, the Jewish HeritageTour gave you an insight into Poland’ s Jewish history and what life was like in the ghetto before the uprising, during it, and the tragic aftermath. If you want an historical and may I add interesting perspective, take this tour.

We were picked up at our hotel by Marvin in a retro Fiat. He made us feel comfortable tight away. We saw all the Jewish sites and he took pictures of us which we have received. As we drove he gave us so much good background and pointed out other sites in Warsaw we could see on our own. Excellent day, wonderful guide. Well worth every Zloty!! We highly recommend him and the company.

When to Get There

If you’re exploring Warsaw in the busy summer months, aim for an early morning or late afternoon visit to avoid the tour groups. Alternatively, the most moving time to visit is on International Holocaust Remembrance Day (January 27) when an emotional ceremony is held in front of the Monument to the Ghetto Heroes.

The History of the Warsaw Jewish Ghetto

Before World War II, there were over 400,000 Jews living in Warsaw, and by 1942, all members of the Jewish community were forced into the German-constructed ghetto, demarcated by a 10-foot (3-meter) high wall circling around a specified sector of the Jewish district. In addition to being the restrained living quarters of the Jewish community during the Nazi occupation, the Warsaw Ghetto was also the place from which thousands of men, women, and children were dispatched to the Treblinka Concentration camp in the summer of 1942, which, in turn, led to the Ghetto Uprising.
