      Skilled, gentle and professional guide. Her name is Kaja and can be recommended. The trip lasted for 2 hours which was just right. We took great advantage of the city walk and it made our stay in Gdansk even better than it would have been without. We were a group from Norway of 8 people. In addition, a nice lady from Italy participated. The group size was perfect. Kaja spoke good English. Mvh Inger Østensjø

      The guide we were to have had sick leave. The guide we then received had a lack of English skills. So it became difficult to keep the thread in what she wanted to convey. But she was friendly and knowledgeable. So we definitely benefited from the guide.
