We had a small, quasi private tour through the beautiful city of Gdansk with Dorota as the German-speaking guide and had a lot of fun and lots of great pictures and information for 3 hours. You can feel Dorota's love for the city of Gdansk. We got tips from her where to eat or snack well and we also had a very pleasant chat with her in between. It was a really nice afternoon!

Perfect tour! Good bikes, good wheather and a very knowledgeable and enthusiastic guide who took us to a lot of different, but all interesting locations. Could not think of anything to improve! Highly recommended , motivated team.

Very good and, above all, interesting tour with lots of references to details that would otherwise be overlooked. Everything went perfectly in spite of the very short-term booking.
