This was a very good tour it lasted 2 hours during which our guide who spoke fluent English filled our heads with tons of information and history . The food offered was a great typical polish dish of pork tartare. We visited 3 bars drinking vodka and beer as we went Overall great fun and such a nice man

Adam was great! Excellent knowledge of the city and its history, including funny stories. We have truly enjoyed this tour. Done many walking tours across the world, but this one was the best ever. Recommend Adam with no hesitation. Thanks Adam!

Much love to our driver Bart(?) He was so kind and really took care of us. The tour itself was as you'd imagine, unsettling and upsetting but probably something we should all take the time to experience just once in our life time.
