Tour guides in Warsaw ?

Any recommendations , is a guide necessary? We'll be there for 4 days and don't want to miss any important sites...or off the beaten track places. We arent shy about exploring and like the "local scene". AND we are foodies!
Thanks for any input.

I don't know any tour guide, but the Warsaw Old Town is a must-see, though most of it is just re-built after WW2.

If you have time, also take a day trip to Krakow, it's worth it

Krakow would be a worth while visit. It would be about 5 or 6 hours R/T.

Krakow would be a worth while visit. It would be about 5 or 6 hours R/T by fast train.

In Warsaw, there is a guide called Grzegorz (Gregory). You can find him on warsaw4u.com. I choosed him, cause he got a lot of reviews on tripadvisor.
He provides 4 different types of tour: the first "Jewish Warsaw" is very good, "Historical Warsaw" was bit changed cause I wanted to visit Lazienkowski Park. I am 100% satisfied of his service.

PS Warsaw and Cracow are completely different cities. Its good to visit both of them and...Poznan is also great.

We really enjoyed Warsaw, although we were only there for two days. Click on my name to find my Central Europe trip report of which the first section is about Warsaw. An excellent restaurant is Podwalk Kampania Piwna, www.podwale25.pl.

I visited Krakow with the Free Walking Tours, maybe in Warsaw they also do a good job?
