Dyktig,blid og profesjonell guide. Hun heter Kaja og kan anbefales. Turen varte i 2 timer noe som var akkurat passe. Vi hadde stort utbytte av byvandringen og den gjorde at oppholdet vårt i Gdansk ble enda bedre enn det ville vært uten. Vi var en gruppe fra Norge på 8 personer. I tillegg deltok en hyggelig dame fra Italia. Gruppestørrelsen var perfekt. Kaja snakket godt engelsk. Mvh Inger Østensjø

Quick and interesting

During holidays we usually don’t like to use a guide, but I thought 2h is not us bad... I loved it at the end and I highly recommend to everyone who like to find out a bit more about Gdańsk
