A great tour of the old town, Cathedral Island and Centennial Hall. The tour guide, Yanek was an excellent communicator and really knew the history of Wroclaw. He was really engaging. The electric vehicle was warm and the blankets appreciated in December! At the end of the tour Yanek recommended a coffee place and a venue for dinner in the old town. We tried both, and they were excellent too! Recommended.

I was the only guest on a snowy midweek tour. Shawn (native English speaker) was a superb guide, very well prepared, informative, impressive knowledge of Polish history. A great introduction to Wroclaw. I felt sorry for the huge groups on the free tour whose guide sounded robotic., when I had such an interactive tour
