This was a enjoyable vodka tour the guide was very knowledgeable and I enjoyed visiting the other bars. The guide was excellent in history and I really appreciated his knowledge of Poland as well as the pre-war period.
Friendly and helpful guides, with lots of information about the city. Best done during the summer as the sunset view is apparently a lot better, but was still worth it in October.
Mike was an excellent guide,very full of information and very friendly!
