My name is Łukasz, and I was born in Warsaw. This is the city of my ancestors: my family has been living here since the 19th century. I studied social psychology, and I`ve been a professional licensed guide of Warsaw since 2013. I'm also a certified guide of the Royal Castle. I guide people from all over the world, and this is what`s incredible about it - meeting people from different cultures. I love my job and I love sharing my knowledge and passion about my city :-)

I am the author and curator of two websites about Warsaw - Warsawcitytours.pl and Klimatwarszawy.pl, where I write about history, architecture, local restaurants, museums, public art and places that I think are worth visiting, but cannot be found in regular guide books.

We had a wonderful tour of old town and the royal road with Lukasz. He has a generations old connection with Warsaw that made him both knowledgeable and passionate about the city. We could have spent an entire day trotting along after him listening, asking questions and learning the deep history of Warsaw.

Łukasz was a blast to explore with. It was really cool to do the night tour…a very charming experience. Our entire group said it felt like hanging out with a good friend. We learned so much about the history of old town and it’s surrounding areas. He showed us things we wouldn’t have seen on our own. Highly recommend!

It was the first time I used an Airbnb "experience" but certainly to the last time. I really enjoyed the tour of the beautiful old town of Warsaw. Łukasz knows his city very well and points out details you would otherwise easily overlook. Not only that, he is also a really nice and fun person to be with. Can only recommend him when in Warsaw. Would have booked other of his tours if I would have known in advance. Next time! :)
