That was really a great tour. We had two exciting, instructive and entertaining hours with our guide. (Stanislaw) He was very committed, made the tour exciting and varied so that there was no boredom. We can only recommend this experience, it was very nice and will be remembered for a long time.

My guide Elwira was very knowledgeable. She took time to explain the museum and its parts. I really enjoyed my experience. The only comment that I had was the cost of it was way to much at over 500zł. It cost as much as my whole weekend in Gdańsk . I thought I was paying 1/2 of that.
