We were taken around by Marek, a very intelligent and articulate young man. He knows lots of stuff about the history of the beers and Gdansk. As the tour goes on and the beer goes down, he loosens up and is willing to go on more frivolous conversations with his ‘merry’ drinkers. The last bar with the small darker beers was my favourite part. Recommend.

We had a great night with Kiryl as our host. went to some fantastic bars, got absolutely smashed, had a good dance in the night club at the end and some how managed to crawl home gone 4am.

The mango pizza 10/10! Good drinks and cocktails Big restaurant With good space from other people, feels like u Are sitting alone in a restaurant Even if The Are many people there.

It was super easy to order, the driver wrote the day before as promised, the means of transport was super and the guide was passionate and good at English. We were very happy.
