Although difficult to find , follow the link from the Solidarity building ( 500 m) and you’ll find it. Had exclusive cruise on interesting boat, , great guide Peter and really enjoyed the experience. It’s a unique place, still with working parts and well worth a visit. Amazing value for under £10!

Amazing experience from beginning to end!! Guide was very knowledgable and made it really easy for a relative newbie. Would definitely recommend and do so again whenever I am back in Poland!!

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.

Friendly and helpful guides, with lots of information about the city. Best done during the summer as the sunset view is apparently a lot better, but was still worth it in October.

Sehr tolles Erlebnis. Dazu ein sehr guter Reiseleiter
