So happy we chose this tour. Norris was an amazing tour guide, super knowledgeable, and really helpful. I was surprised by the route we took, down to the dockyards and communist side of town, really very interesting and a side of gdanak I don't think we would have seen without the tour. We managed to see all the major sites too and I'm really pleased we chose this over a walking tour.

Very nice and informative. The car was closed on all sides with transparent foil so that we didn't get wet. The guide was super friendly and very nice. He took our wishes into account. We would be happy to do it again.

Really lovely tour - starting with the shipyards and going through the main town. Beautiful and serene

Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and passionate about Gdańsk and it's history.

An amazing experience with a dedicated guide who made experience even better!!
