Best Tour you can get in Poznan. He knows a lot about the city and exactly what his guests want. Has a lot of great stories, which he thoughtfully puts together.

Took this tour with my family. Szymon was an excellent and knowledgable guide, making the time informative and enjoyable. Far more interesting than a walking history lesson, this was more of a deep dive in Poznan people and culture, with landmark references triggering the stories and insider view you wouldn’t usually find out about. Highly recommended

I had a wonderful tour with Szymon. Szymon is knowledgeable, insightful, and has a charismatic way of making the history of Poznan come alive and fit context of modern Poland. He came prepared with maps and historic Print-outs so I could compare ancient landmarks with their present-day conditions. We also toured the old city extensively and saw some hidden treasures of Poznan. If you are here in Poznan, I Highly recommended that you do this!

Really quirky, excellent experience we learnt about history of Poznan and saw what the city has to offer. Really enjoyable time and very informative. Would definitely recommend this to do if visiting the city. The coffee stop is a little secret treasure. Our host was very friendly and helpful, really nice guy and gave us top tips on eateries.
