We had an amazing time with our terrific guide (and friend of Iceland) Przemymslaw who could not have done a better job. He took us on a magical tour of beautiful Wroclaw, was friendly and approachable as well as being incredibly knowledgeable. I would highly recommend this tour and this guide to anyone wanting to see the best of the city.

We had a guide (Christopher) who spoke German for the audio guide. That was an advantage because you could also ask questions. The audio guide itself was a bit lost in the driving noise. But basically an informative tour to get an overview.

It was cold, unfortunately it didn't work out at 2:00 p.m., but only at 3:00 p.m., then we got into the dark, it was just about okay, but still a nice thing.

The roof was rolled up and therefore visibility was limited. It took 90 minutes not 120. Guide very nice and competent.
