What you'll do

You will visit and uncover the intriguing history of the oldest buildings (700+ years old), feel the 22 carat gold petals dance across your taste buds as you drink your shot of traditional, 420 year old locally produced vodka. Try 7 different types of cured Polish meats . . . then later, it's time to taste the most famous of all Polish sweets . . . the “pączek” which is a very old ancestor to the doughnut - yet so much more enjoyable, it's hard to stop at eating just one.

Alex was really knowledgeable and told us many unique stories of Gdańsk that we probably wouldn't have discovered otherwise. The whole experience was educational and entertaining and the structure of the trip was well thought out.

BOOK IT! Alex showed us beautiful places that we were probably going to miss when visiting Gdansk on our own. He told us many stories and parts of the History we never heard of or read about before we came here. The foodie stops were brilliant and were nice recommendations during our stay here too. Alex is very knowledgeable and fun and Gdansk is so rich culturally! Don’t miss this tour!

The tour combines with many aspects of the city, like history, food, culture, people...etc, giving me a deep experience in Gdansk. It is a great way to know the city for people visiting Gdansk first! Also, the schedule is well-organized. You can have a break or snacks during the tour to restore your energy.

Alex ist ein sehr sympathischer Guide mit sehr fundierten Kenntnisse , die er in besonderer Weise seinen Teilnehmern vermittelt. Die Zeit verging im Flug und war in englischer Sprache gut verständlich. Bucht bei ihm eine Tour, sie ist toll.
