What people are saying about Gdansk

I booked this tour for my Wife and I. Our Guide was Kuba (Quba), and we were the only two people because we took an evening tour at 17:00. The e scooter provided were really well maintained, and helmets were provided too. Kuba was a fantastic guide, he was so informative about the city. We learnt a lot many things about Gdansk and special thanks to Kuba. He took us around all the main streets, and places and gave so many information about it. My Wife was extremely happy as she rode the e-scooter for the first time. Kuba was really patient, he stopped at places to take our pictures. Overall 5/5. Thanks to Kuba. Definitely worth going for this tour.

I showed up and was greeting very politely by Jaco (my tour guide). He let me try the scooter first and made sure I felt comfortable before going off. He stopped at various points of interest and was very happy to answer any questions I had. I was the only one on the tour, so he customised the tour to make it cover places I had not yet seen. I would definitely recommend to anyone considering a tour in Gdańsk, as the scooters are fun, my tour guide was the best and we covered a lot of interesting history.

The whole experience was fantastic with a very supportive guide and though there wasn't a sunset view , owing to a cloudy evening, it didn't really matter.

We couldn't have imagined a better city tour. The guide was especially great!

Nice, friendly guide, clean and safe boat (fully electric). Everything OK.
