Adventure Warsaw was started in 2009. At that time Rafał, the founding father of our initiative, was an aspiring urban planner focused on writing his MA thesis. During this process he started digging, searching and exploring, and the results exceeded his wildest expectations because he discovered… Warsaw! He simply had to share it with other people and this is how it started…

Today our team consists of young but experienced tour guides who will share their passion with you and show you Warsaw like you have never seen it before.

Marta & Rafał - Founders of Adventure Warsaw

Both deeply in love with Warsaw, although they admit that it is a difficult and challenging relationship. The capital city of Poland is not easy, but they are very understanding because after all it has been through a lot. How did it all start? In 2009, when Rafał was writing his MA thesis on Warsaw, tourists didn’t really have a chance to see anything else apart from the Old Town and the Łazienki Park. Shocked by the discovery of the side of the city that he didn’t know, Rafał decided to show it to visitors. When he met Marta at a course for tour guides, Rafał already was a proud owner of his first Nysa van. Together they set off on a common journey and they invite everyone to join them to get to know Warsaw anew.
