    We really enjoyed the tour with Elwira. She is a licensed PTTK guide and with a lot of experience. She was happy to tailor her talk to our specific questions and gave us suggestions for further places to see after the tour, like the site of the synagogue. She had great energy, was very engaging and her English is very good!

    Skilled, gentle and professional guide. Her name is Kaja and can be recommended. The trip lasted for 2 hours which was just right. We took great advantage of the city walk and it made our stay in Gdansk even better than it would have been without. We were a group from Norway of 8 people. In addition, a nice lady from Italy participated. The group size was perfect. Kaja spoke good English. Mvh Inger Østensjø
