Formally called the Tricity region by the Tricity Charter of 2007, the 3 Baltic Sea cities of Gdansk, Gdynia, and Sopot had informally been referred to as the tricity for much longer. Among the most handsome cities of Gdansk Bay, they provide a glorious backdrop for this 8-hour sightseeing excursion to some of their most notable attractions. During the first part of this trip, visit the Old Town of Gdansk. The charm of Old Town Gdansk attracts millions of tourists each year. Start by taking a walk down Długa Street, which is one of the most beautiful European markets that is nestled around a dazzling selection of renaissance buildings. It leaves from the Golden Gate and passes by the Town Hall, Neptune fountain, Arthur's Court and finishes by the Green Gate overlooking the Motława River. On a way see The Museum of Arthur's Court and the Amber Chamber with amber polishing demonstration and a short lecture on amber. Stop by the Old Crane, which happens to be one of the most popular symbols of the city and to the church of St Mary, Europe's biggest gothic brick church. Visit beautiful suburb of Oliwa. Go to the 16th-century Gdansk Oliwa Cathedral, the longest Cistercian church in the world, famous for its organs and unforgetable organ concert.

With Marek, our guide, you could feel the enthusiasm with which he spoke about his city and his personal stories. After a tour of the city center we took the boat to Westerplatte where WWII started. Then we went to Oliva, where we could listen to an incomparable organ concert in the Cistercian monastery. The entire park and the mighty monastery complex are worth seeing! Finally, we drove to Zopot and looked at the sophisticated beach promenade. The house of Klaus Kinski and the "crooked house" were also worth seeing.

It was a great tour! I can recommend it! The guide was very nice and also took pictures of and. And also really explains what the city is like and what is important. It's just a shame that we skipped Gdynia and instead went to see the church in Oliwia. It would be nice if we had seen Gdynia too. Sopot was a highlight, super great place and very nicely explained by the guide.

Our guide was Marek Barski. We really liked it. Very detailed and interesting tour, very nice guide. He responded to our personal wishes and gave us a comprehensive tour of the Tricity.

A very interesting excursion. We are well accompanied by the guide. This visit, even if it lasts almost all day, is essential to do when you come to Gdansk.

Very knowledgeable guide, I told her my interests and she accommodated them into the bike tour. I throughly enjoyed it.
