The driver, Simon, was great! He was there on time as agreed, super friendly and professional! The guide, Thomas, on site was perfect. We were treated to a tour of the camp with an explanation on all points. The guide was open to questions and discussions. He was also very honest in his answers. I recommend this experience!!! Thanks

Exciting visit to Stutthoff. Our guide was knowledgeable and good at English. Can be recommended if you are interested in the Second World War and the history of Poland.

A stop-gap dose of history, led by an excellent guide. A suitably long tour and relevant in a concise and informative format. A lot to see. I recommend visiting.

A great experience. The guide was great! Told details that I wouldn't have stayed to hear/read anywhere else.

Great tour with a great guide 100% recommend to anyone going to Gdańsk!
