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.

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.

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

The pick up time was exactly the time I was given. The driver contacted me twice to ensure I received his message. The car was extremely clean.
