    Marek arrived on time. He was knowledgeable and listened to our questions and was happy to elaborate on areas that we were interested in. Very friendly and we felt very relaxed. There was plenty of food in the tour and we got to see an wide range of places around Gdańsk for sights and food and drink. He gave us loads of suggestion for other things we could do around the city as well. We would really recommend this trip!

    Our guide Karina was superb. She introduced us to the food and lifestyle of Gdańsk and made it all come alive for us

  • 28-Nov-2021

    Had an excellent experience led by Kaja. 5 hours flew by! We were a group of 11 people, mixed with couples and singles from different places in Europe and all enjoyed it. Great and plenty of food mixed with good beer, cool bars/restaurants, and interesting stories/information about the region. Excellent way to see and learn about the city!

  • 10-Oct-2021

    We were on trip with friends from work, that haven't been to Gdansk before. Our guide Kaja was very well informed and had a good historical knowladge about the city, with some interesting tips - not just boring facts. Trip was very interesting and 3.5 hours went by really quickly. The food was also very good and it was nice to try some traditional dishes. Recomend to everyone!

    Dejlig oplevelse - masser af traditionel polsk mad mm. Super guidening gennem byen. Fantastisk guide Marek, som kendte til byen. Meget vidende og oplysende. Meget forståelig engelsk. Opmærksom på alle var med. Turen kan kun anbefales

    We had a very nice evening on this tour, it was our first day in Gdansk, so we got a lot of information and advice from our tour guide Michal. He was full of knowledge, and told us stories about the city, the buildings and the people. There was so much food, no way we could finish all ;) it is a beautiful walk between old town and city center. We are very happy we made this choice. We can absolutely recommend it. Thank you Michal :)

    Danzig ist absolutt eine Reise wert! Nette Menschen , auch wenn einige etwas reserviert waren. Preise für Essen sind sind günstig und gute Portionen. Die Altstadt ist absolut sehenswert auch wenn man es nur auf die Altstadt beziehen kann. Eine Fahrt mit der Black pearl zur Westplatte wird absolut empfohlen. Tolles Erlebnis mit sehr netter Crew und teilweise livemusik.
