With Marek, our guide, you could feel the enthusiasm with which he spoke about his city and his personal stories. After a tour of the city center we took the boat to Westerplatte where WWII started. Then we went to Oliva, where we could listen to an incomparable organ concert in the Cistercian monastery. The entire park and the mighty monastery complex are worth seeing! Finally, we drove to Zopot and looked at the sophisticated beach promenade. The house of Klaus Kinski and the "crooked house" were also worth seeing.

We spent the day together with Barbara. she awaited us punctually in front of the ship, where she dropped us off just as reliably a good seven hours later. in the meantime we spent a very pleasant time with lots of information, anecdotes and interesting facts about the Tri-City. It was a great day and we can warmly recommend Barbara as a tour guide. Thanks!!!

Our guide's name was Krzysztof. He was at our hotel on time, could speak German very well and responded to every question and every request. Despite the November weather, we had an impressive and entertaining day and got a great overview.

Everything is fine. I met with a sign, drove to the hotel, showed where the old city was and left. In short, he did his job. It's just a transfer from the airport to the hotel.

Our guide was on time and very knowledgeable abort the area and the castle. We both enjoyed the trip
