What people are saying about Wałbrzych

It was a perfect day. Our guide (and very careful driver) explained a lot of interesting things to us during the trip and was there for us at any time. Overall, it was a very relaxed day and although we saw a lot and there was also time for an extensive lunch, there was no stress or hectic pace at any time. The combination of underground tunnels, castle and Friedenskirche was very versatile.

The tour is very interesting, leads to unexpected structures above and in the ground. Implementation without time constraints and responding to special requests. Our tour guide Andreas was very friendly and was able to share many interesting details from his profound knowledge of history. We enjoyed the ride immensely. Jürgen S. from Vienna

Time is always short for this type of tour, but our dear Spartacus has definitely put me and my partner at ease, not rushing and explaining each monument step by step. Top organization, abundant snacks with water, courteous and local expert
