I’va had a great kayak experience here! Excellent services and the best instructor/guide ever. He’s telling the history about Gdańsk all the way, it was all worth it. He even took a video for me, he did not mind it at all. I’ll definitely go back and do it again whenever I’m here. Recommended truly.

We were very satisfied with our very good German-speaking guide and the bike tour we had booked. He showed us Gdansk from interesting angles in 4 hours. We have seen places that we would never have known without him. Very, very recommendable!

Couldn't be happier with the trip - the guide was great and very knowledgeable, we learn loads about the history of Gdansk all while enjoying the kayaking part

The Guide is nice and told us the story about the city. Very recommended!
