Adaptable guide with good knowledge of Gdansk

Very nice and skilled guide who took on challenges with children on a 3 hour walk on a straight arm. We made adjustments along the way and the guide found good alternatives to what was on the plan based on our wishes. We had a tour on a Monday, and then there is free admission to some museums. This led to longer queues than normal and that we chose to skip the amber museum. However, we got to see great amber on the trip to the medieval castle Malbork, so it was not problematic for us. A visit to a candy store / workshop is a big hit, but this can also be done without a guide if you wish. St. Mary's Church, Dominican festival days, the Neptune Fountain and the town hall, as well as the crane, the various city gates presented with a lot of information about the city and Poland. Has become much better acquainted with the city, its history and the country after this trip. Can be recomended.

It was wonderfully organized and the pick up was great. We had a nice tour guide but were a dissapointed by the tour as we had expected it more children historically filled.
