What you'll do

Warsaw is the city where Frederic Chopin spent the first half of his life, so why don't you walk in his footsteps? On our tour you will see where his heart is, where he lived with his family, where he played the organ every Sunday and where he spent free time with his friends. We’ll talk about the ladies he loved and about his life in Paris. You will also have a chance to taste a very special drink he drunk to improve his health. The tour will end in a music salon where you will spend the rest of the evening enjoying 1-hour recital performed by an exceptional artist.
Other things to note
It's a walking tour. That last stop is the music salon where the guide says goodbye to you and you can enjoy Chopin's music for the next hour.

Where you'll be

We'll walk along the most representative street of Warsaw where you find lots of monuments. I will show you unique places with a very special atmosphere, such as the historic campus of Warsaw University, the Holy Cross Church and the Visitationist Church. You will listen to the concert in a small music salon which was arranged in one of the buildings where Chopin himself used to give concerts.

Anna is a wonderful, kind, and knowledgeable tour guide about all things Chopin. She specifically catered the tour to our time constraints. I wish we had more time available to learn from Anna, but I am very excited about the possibility of visiting Warsaw again, and this tour with Anna will certainly be a top priority for all future visits.

Anna was a great guide. She was prompt, gave a lot of information about Chopin and the city, and even provided a pamphlet with additional stats that I could read at my leisure.

Leonid took the tour for us, he was a really interested host, very passionate about his subject, and so friendly and polite, we really enjoyed his company. The concert was a real treat in a beautiful location. A great tour to be recommended.

I learned a lot during this tour and the piano concert at the end was fantastic. I recommend this tour if you are a classical music fan and find yourself visiting Warsaw.

I was lucky enough to have a chance to join the tour. It wasn’t applicable initially from the Airbnb calendar, but Anna added the tour the day before for me so that i eventually could book the experience. A private tour. It was more like a night walk, but with the topic of exploring Chopin’s footsteps and the city of Warsaw with a local, which was precious. I was also able to learn the historical events that Warsaw, Poland has been though. The recital concert after the tour was enjoyable.

Anna is very personable, friendly & easy going. She has a deep knowledge of her subject and was able to answer questions as they arose. I would recommend this trip to anyone. The recital at the end was delightful,and they were right I went away with memories of Chopin’s life story and his music. Thank you!
