Andrzej our amazing guide was just perfect he made our trip so specia!

We are really pleased we booked this guided tour, 3 hours was not enough, our guide showed us everything we wanted to see and more besides. His English was perfect we learnt so much, we saw so much, we would recommend his tour to anyone who wants to discover the history of Szczecin right up to the present day. We were able to walk in the steps of my ancestors, visit the places they lived and worshiped before the end of WW2. We now have an understanding of life for Germans living here before, during and after the war when they had to leave and Stettin became Polish. This city is so friendly but without Andrzej our guide we would have missed so much. We have no reservations in recommending this getyourguide tour. Worth every ‘penny’ as they say in England! Thank you!

Our guide Dominik was extremely well-founded, charming and humorous! He was able to answer all of our questions, including those that went far beyond historical questions. We would like to thank you very much for a wonderful afternoon!
