Great trip !. A very flexible approach. There is no rigid, mandatory framework. Everything can be arranged with a guide. It is worth going to the Museum of World War II before such a trip, there would probably be more questions. We did in reverse order and we regret it. I would probably recommend to friends who want to have a unique trip with their own exclusive guide. A knowledgeable guide. He spoke about Gdańsk with great passion, you can see that he is proud of where he lives and that he can talk about the history of this city.

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.

Marek was professional, and knowledgeable of historical information. There is so much to cover in a tri-city tour. Marek was perhaps too quick in attempting to show us as much as possible. My wife was not able to maintain his walking pace. Overall we very much enjoyed the tour. In particular, Gdansk, and Gdynia.

Very well structured, interesting and entertaining!
