It was a private tour. The driver was punctual and pick up from the hotel. The driver was very friendly, speaks English and had good conversation throughout the journey. Safe driving was important. The tour inside the castle was with audio guide and was very efficient and informative. The lunch was decent. The Walk in tour in Gdansk was so much fun with the tour guide. Overall I am happy with the trip.

Starts off a little slow but gets very interesting as you progress through the day, I highly recommend ending the day in the cellar pub in the Old Town, grabbing a bite to eat off the square (really amazing food and not at all expensive) for lunch is a great idea.

Our driver picked us up at appointed time and place. She was professional, knowledgable, personable, and fun. We spent 16 hours with her and enjoyed ever minute. Highly recommend this service.

An absolute must for any Chopin fan! George was a fantastic guide and there were so many sights to see.

Mark was an excellent guide. He was informative, intelligent and understood our interest in the tour.
