What people are saying about Old Town, Wroclaw

The Wroclaw tour was great. We can recommend them unreservedly. There is probably no better and more personable guide in Breslau than Norbert, with whom we had our tour. He speaks fantastic German and has an extremely extensive knowledge of his city and its historical context. He showed us all the major sights. In addition, he found exactly the right mix between data and facts as well as interesting and entertaining side stories. 5 stars for this tour in a 5 star city.

We booked the city tour very spontaneously, only in the morning at breakfast for 2 p.m. The guide was very punctual and then made a tour specially tailored for us, which was perfectly tailored to the ages of the children and adults. The mix of information and chatting, running and looking, as well as the scope and nature of the tour, was perfect. In addition, the guide was super friendly and his German was very good. It has to be like that! Thanks very much

Our guide Andrzej was able to report an enormous number of interesting details and thus provide a lot of input in a short time. The needs of the group were well taken care of too!
