      Great tour of the castle, informative guide. Westerplatte is interesting too. Door to door service. Great food and experience at Maly Holender restaurant - what a historically interesting spot (Polish Mennonite culture!)

      We really got a grip on Gdansk this way!
      This was the by far the best bike tour ever for us, with an outstanding guide who promised to show us 1,000 years of history in 3 hours...and she delivered! The bikes were new and easy to learn, the foot and car traffic was totally manageable, and the history we learned along the way came to life a bit as we visited sites where it was made. It was so interesting and enjoyable that we didn't want the trip to end. This is a great way to quickly get your bearings around Gdansk, and decide what sites you'll visit afterwards!

      Wiki Tour-de-Gdansk
      Our day began with a little bit of stress because the tour operator was ~15 minutes late due to traffic (she tried texting me, but I have no int’l data). If this happens to you… Have faith — they are coming. The tour guide, Bozena, quickly recovered. She picked us up in her 8-person VW van, and took us on a lovely Baltic tour. I ask hard questions — obscure factoids on all sorts of things — Bozena had answers. True to its name, this was a tour of ‘Poland by Locals’. Does Gdansk have a native beer? Why yes, Jopenbier, which botanical archaeologists reconstructed recipes from a hidden stash of forgotten 15th century bottles. Why don’t I see more oak trees? I only see Linden and Locusts… she knew the history of trade deals that describe the Polish lumber market. Why was Westerplatte the opening salvo for WW2? Why Gdansk and not Danzig? … She knew. AND — she was kind and tolerant of the two-tweens with us. Also — the ‘lunch’ mentioned here is a pretty bland advertisement for the really neat, local spot they take you. I had no ideas that they had a Mennonite Enclave that has excellent pierogi as well as… Crawdads like the Mississippi Delta (!!) because, Gdansk (whose name is derived from lower wetlands!), is that kind of place, too. 100% Recommend.

      Best Bike Tour
      Our guide Bastian showed us some hidden gems we would never have found on our own. We were at our own pace, so much more able to see the sites and learn from a local expert. Cycling is the way to go, much easier than walking for long distances, and lets you really see better than from a car or bus. The bikes are great and so much fun to ride on the great trails and lanes in the tri-city area. Gdansk is the most beautiful and interesting city, and Sopot is an inviting resort, so the bike tour and information from Bastian makes me want to return again for an even longer stay.

      Superb
      Fun, interesting and efficient. If you’ve only got a short time in Gdańsk, like riding a bike (it’s quite leisurely), and want to know the outline history of the city, this is the trip for you. It’s great to be guided on a bike route and to hear all the stories from an expert. Sebastian, our guide, was laid back and very informative.

      Beyond Exceptional Tour
      A friend and I contacted Poland by Locals through their website and arranged two tours. One day was spent on military and non-military highlights of Gdansk, Gdynia, and Sopot. We visited an amber artisan's workshop, two hills around Gdansk, the Shipyard for street food, a forest in Gdynia with old bunkers & an old artillery battery, a WWII destroyer (military ship), a microbrewery in Sopot, and the pier at Sopot. It was an awesome day. The second tour was even better. We visited the Museum of Military Technology Gryf and Hel Peninsula. At the museum, located on a former military base, we saw/touched much military equipment, rode in a military vehicle on an obstacle course, shot guns, and rode in an old Soviet-made tank! Super cool! Then we went to Hel where we saw its coastal defense system from WWII. An awesome, awesome day. Our guide was the very gifted Sebastian, who was friendly and knowledgable. I can't say enough good things about our Poland by Locals Experience.

      A small group tour
      I was on a bike tour led by Bojanna (sorry if spelling incorrect). There were only 3 of us plus the guide. The chap at the bike shop helped set us on the bikes. The tour started around the old town then into the ship yards and back the new marina. We saw sights and our guide told us stories I not seen on the walking tours. Pace was easy to follow. I would be interested if they offer any other tours further say to Westerplatte or other areas.

      Fantastic tour with Bozena.
      I have always had a interest in Eastern European history from post war right through to the present day, and on a recent visit to Gdansk, I could not pass by the chance to visit the birth place of the Solidarity movement. I only knew the basics of the events that took place in the ship yards, and probably less on Lech Walesa (while I was doing my trip solo, my Ukrainian wife knew all about him and told me that I would love this tour as it will be right up my street) and had no issue booking it. I met my guide Bozena at the entrance to the European Solidarity Centre, and for the first hour we went around the museum getting a real in depth account of the events on 1980, and what had been leading up to it, with discussions on the 1970's strikes, what caused the 1980 strikes and the straw that broke the camels back, with the rise of Lech Walsea, the birth of the Solidarity movement, the knock on effects from that, not only in Poland (starting with Martial Law), but with the first free elections that followed and the domino effect it had across Eastern Europe and the Soviet Union, with its effects still having ripples to this day. After this we went out in to the actual ship yards themselves, which as someone from a construction and metal work background, was something that really appealed to me. Tour ended at one of the converted warehouses in the shipyard which is now a Hipster Hangout with street food, coffee and craft beer (my type of place!!!!). All in all Bozena was a fantastic guide, and I got out of this tour exactly what I was looking for, and that was the whole in's and out's of the history of the events in Gdanks 40 years ago. Can fully recommend this tour for anyone.

      Superb cycle tour!
      Superb start to our holiday! Casper, our tour guide, had exceptional historical knowledge of the city and we appreciated his personable character. What a perfect way to see the city. We hired bikes the next day and cycled to Sopot which we loved. Thanks again to Casper and Sebastian x

      Fantastic- on all counts. The Tour, the Bikes, the tour Guide
      BLUF: Outstanding. Fantstic- on all counts: Sebastian is knowledgeable, personable and conveys a good sense of humor. Bicycles provided were first class- Poland’s version of high end TREK. Impressive. Our tour was tailored to Gdansk. The three hour tour was a very easy ride and suitable for all bike riding ages. Recommendation: Make the bike tour your first in city activity. The tour provides area familiarization very helpful as you decide where to visit later. -PS: I liked their T-Shirts.
