Karina ("Kaja") Herholz was super friendly and took us on a wonderful tour through her beautiful city. Thanks to her wealth of expert information, we were able to delve into the fascinating history of this city and discover details that we would not have seen without her. We can highly recommend Karina.

A very important place, a summary of the history of one of the most tragic wars. We were very pleased, the exhibitions are well prepared, my parents fought in World War 2 and by visiting this Museum I could better understand their history. A must-see for every Pole!

Monika was awesome! She was so enthousiast even though we were only 4 (because we went on a Sunday evening)! She had everything prepared to have an amazing evening, we played some drinking games, she told us a lot about the city. 100% recommended!

Great way to see the town with plenty of great local dishes. Thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon and would highly recommend to anyone visiting Gdansk.

Our guide Monica did an excellent job! She made the experience so much fun, made sure we all mingled, and gave us a really lovely night.
