    This company is awesome! I received email of my Guide and a contact number days before!! Bożena was amazing!!! She is so knowledgeable about Gdańsk!!! She was prompt at pick up from my hotel lobby as agreed!! Her directions and meeting locations were clear and I felt the trip was well organized! Malbork was an audio guide which is a once in a life time experience! It really felt like an adventure! Westerplatte was rich in history, and the lunch was the best pierogis. Just a great day! I feel like I rode around with a long time friend!!

    Everything about the tour was perfect. The castle is so impressive, steeped in history. Our guide Bozina was very knowledgeable and always helpful. Lunch was the best part of the day, perfect in every way.

    This tour lived up to and then surpassed our expectations. The castle is amazing, lunch was delicious and Westerplatte was sobering, but all of these experiences were improved by Sebastian’s knowledge and experience. I’m so glad we decided to book this tour.

    Very well thought out, hassle-free, informative, and excellent value tour with interesting and enjoyable descriptions (in English) at every stage of the tour. We received an email prior to the trip with our guide’s contact number and confirmation of pick-up time. Our trip started with a prompt pick up at the lobby of our hotel in Gdansk by our guide Sebastian. Sebastian gave us a brief overview of the day and inquired about our needs. We had no special requests other than we wanted to help him take a few pictures for us from the trip; were happy to take the tour as advertised. We got into a comfortable and air-conditioned small van (we were the only passengers) where Sebastian offered us bottled water. First, we first visited the historic site of Westerplatte. On a way there, Sebastian told us about the history of Gdansk and Westerplatte. Here on September 1, 1939 the WWII started. The remains of the structure were very powerful description of what happened and of bravery and heroism of the Polish people. Sebastian also showed us a monument dedicated to the site with an excellent commentary highlighting soviet influences on that region after the WWII. Sebastian invited questions and comments, and when asked, he was happy to take several pictures for us. Next, we drove to Malbork castle. Again, Sebastian gave us an overview of pertinent history and invited questions on a way to the site. The castle was built by Teutonic Knights and is considered to be the largest castle in the world (area wise). When we arrived, there were lots of people there in lines. We were so happy we did not have to figure out transport or stand in lines. Sebastian gave us the tickets, gave us more specific details about the castle pointing to specific areas on the outside, and walked us to the gate where he would pick us up later, after our tour. We walked to the entrance to the castle, and took an excellent self-guided tour through the castle (the self-guided tour uses both, a gps system and pictures so it is very easy to navigate various spaces around the huge castle). We took about 3 hours inside, but could easily spend more time there. Sebastian was waiting outside for us. Immediately after, he walked us to the most beautiful and picturesque view point, where he took several pictures for us with the castle in the background (using our camera). He really knew where to take a picture; our friends commented that we should frame one of the pictures (it is so beautiful). Finally, we drove through an area where we learned about Mennonite paths which concluded with a simple lunch with locally brewed beer in a Mennonite-type house restaurant. Finally, Sebastian drove us back to our hotel and we chatted along the way asking him a multitude of questions. Everything was extremely well organized from beginning to the end, and we have many pictures to remember the day. We got a lot from the trip. It was a fantastic day! Please note, if you have a physical handicap, the trip may be very difficult. In any case, be prepared for lots of walking and make sure you have good walking shoes. We very highly recommend this tour.

    Interesting! We received individual audio guides which gave us info and history about the area we were in. This allowed us to go at our own pace. Definite must see!

    Sebastian was a wonderful guide going over and above what we expected. Since there were only two of us we ate lunch at a restaurant near the castle rather than bbq but we had a very quality day trip and highly recommend Poland by Locals.

    This tour was the highlight of our trip to Gdansk. The tour of Malbork Castle, lunch and the visit to Westerplatte were excellent. But, the attention to Mennonite history was really exceptional. My father's side of the family is from this area so it was very meaningful to me that Sebastian focused on Mennonite history as well. He picked us up on time in a nice vehicle and we found him to be an engaging guide. Truly one of the best we have ever had! I highly recommend this tour.
