Sofia was a wonderful guide, showing us the main landmarks of the city. The story of the city was very interesting and I have learnt a lot. Thank you for the recommendations.

We enjoyed the tour very much. Lots of historical facts, storytelling and smart humour. Not all the locations, including the main town gems, showed by our lovely guides, pani Kasia (Dynamite) and pani Sandra, can be found easily in the online city guides. They engage you very effectively, keep great dynamics of the tour, and bring your attention to the details one definitely would miss, when walking in the town on their own. Pani Kasia and pani Sandra are really recommended!
