It was a small group, joined our guide, Sean at rendezvous point as agreed. He gave us a broad overview using pictures and maps to illustrate the history of the city before we set off. This gave the tour great context. With only five tourists it was easy to comprehend and we walked at a fair face. Very enjoyable. Sean was knowledgeable and the interaction was good

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

We really enjoyed our guided city tour. We were taken to all the main sights in the city. Not only was the historical and art-historical background explained in a very appealing way, but one or two anecdotes were also included. We recommend this really good tour without reservation and wish you a lot of fun!

We enjoyed learning about the history of charming Wroclaw while a bit off the beaten path. Absolutely recommend!

Very informative guide - great introduction to the city
