Warsaw Old Town with Royal Castle + Lazienki Park: SMALL GROUP /inc. Pick-up/
Of course you can book an audio tour yourself, and take a walk though the old town or the park yourself. But you would miss out on a lot of the information and history the guide would give you. We had a great time and our guide really showed an tought us a lot that would otherwise never be seen. Would definitely recommend taking this tour, rather than trying on your own.
