What people are saying about Gdansk

We had a small, quasi private tour through the beautiful city of Gdansk with Dorota as the German-speaking guide and had a lot of fun and lots of great pictures and information for 3 hours. You can feel Dorota's love for the city of Gdansk. We got tips from her where to eat or snack well and we also had a very pleasant chat with her in between. It was a really nice afternoon!

We were picked up on time and the driver and tour guide was amazing. We got additional mail with confirmation from the company. It was very worth the price. The tour with this company has one big advantage it is within a small group not with 30 people. We were just as 8 people and it was great to ask any question.

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.

This was very informative and interesting trip at the same time. Everything was well organised, guide was awesome. Despite the fact the subcjet is very difficult he made it understable and we could feel it. I recommend it to anyone!

Great service, tour guide was very knowledgable and helpful. Went the extra mile for us. Learnt a lot about the beautiful city of Gdansk. Definitely recommend!
