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!!!

Very nice food and equally nice cocktails recommend it. There is a 5 course taster option but I did the three course one and think it was better as you could pick your dishes and cocktails.

Everything went great. The driver was there on time and the food was great. We had great weather and a wide view over Gdansk. I can only recommend it to everyone

It was a really good experience even though we had to pick up 6 others at another hotel. Good food, and super drinks

Very good and friendly trip with good advice from our hotel "Lido" to the Olivia Star. Perfect!
