Fantastic experience! Szymon is a great instructor - open, helpful and has a good way of transferring the necessary knowledge. Also funny! I was the only one that day so I paddled on a single kayak which I had never done before. As far as the tour goes, it was a fun route which included facts, stories, angry swans and a beautiful sunset. If you’re looking for a more active experience in the city then I highly recommend it!

As a traveler to many countries, i have never met a tour guide as Marek. So knowledgeable and kind. He is so fun and charismatic. Do not hesitate to book a tour with him. This is a real review and i wish Marek the best in the near future.

Elwira was our wonderful guide. She was extremely knowledgeable and really kept our kids (ages 10, 8 and 5) engaged. Highly recommended.

Very nice guide, a lot of knowledge about the area. Informative trip to the concentration camp
