What people are saying about Pomerania Province

That was really a great tour. We had two exciting, instructive and entertaining hours with our guide. (Stanislaw) He was very committed, made the tour exciting and varied so that there was no boredom. We can only recommend this experience, it was very nice and will be remembered for a long time.

My guide Elwira was very knowledgeable. She took time to explain the museum and its parts. I really enjoyed my experience. The only comment that I had was the cost of it was way to much at over 500zł. It cost as much as my whole weekend in Gdańsk . I thought I was paying 1/2 of that.

This was my first time using this service and first private tour. Our guide Alicia was excellent. Very kind and knowledgeable. Beautiful, unique, and interesting castle! Great value and great service. Fast, friendly, easy to book.

Very good and, above all, interesting tour with lots of references to details that would otherwise be overlooked. Everything went perfectly in spite of the very short-term booking.

Our tour guide was super informative and friendly. He was extremely educated on the history and gave us tons of great information. It was very sad history to see
