Wonderful Tour
Wow talk about bang for your buck. Our tour guide Sean was an absolute delight. He was a wealth of knowledge and truly passionate about the history of this wonderful city. I was very impressed with his storytelling ability. My husband and I were both amazed how much we learned and saw in 2 1/2 hours!

Excellent personalised tour
I booked the day before we flew out to Wroclaw and immediately got a confirmation email back with the booking. My wife and I turned up a bit early to be greeted by Dorothea a local teacher who takes tours in her spare time. We found out that we were the only ones booked and off we went. Dorothea was very knowledgeable about her city and gave us a very in depth tour of the main buildings in and about the city centre. She told us of her favourite coffee cafe and we used it twice after this it was excellent.Herbaciania its in the market hall. The tour was meant to be 45minutes and Dorothea guided us through the street for 3 hours and nearly 8 miles!! not for the faint hearted but great value for money. It cant praise Dorothea highly enough, if you are lucky enough to get her your in for a treat.

From pick up to our destination and back 5 stars.
We were in Wroclow and picked from our hotel and brought to Auschwitz and back. Booked online, communication was an excellent service. Driver had excellent English. A 3 hour trip and a stop half way in either direction to eat or get a coffee. We had nothing to do but turn up, they organized all our tickets and tours guides and met us after again to collect us. Any questions we had on route were answered. Highly recommend this service to anyone.

Excellent
Our guide was excellent. He was very knowledgeable about the history of the town. Gave excellent advise about what not to miss while visiting the city. Explained why the gnomes were all over town, and pointed out many of them. We were also able to explore parts of town that we never would have seen without him. I highly recommend this tour. There were only 7 people so very easy to hear him, and get questions answered.

Breathtaking views and best tour guides :)
Our trip was amazing and Adam was the best guide! The drive was beautiful and Adam was very engaging with my father who was firing off the most historically obscure questions rapid-fire at him the whole drive there and back. And he had all of the answers! The hike around the area was trying breathtaking as well. We did another tour last summer with this company and another Adam was our guide and had a similarly stellar experience. Highly recommend any trips with this tour company :)

Great overview of Wroclaw
Sean, our guide was a veritable encyclopaedia of Wroclaw. He was thoughtful and patient and has a great feel for the city, happy to answer any question. We came from the tour with recommendations of things to do and a real feeling we had an understanding of this fine city. We simply could not have asked for a better walking tour. We have had a tour of Krakow recently by electric golf cart, there really is no comparison with the depth of experience you get on foot.

Highly recommend
We booked Maciej for airport pick up, drop off and a day trip to Auschwitz. From meeting Maciej at the airport, he was so friendly and full of information. He gave us loads of tips of places to see and restaurants/bars to try. The day trip to Auschwitz was a long day but Maciej made it run so smootly. He also told us if we wanted to stop at any point it was no problem. We will definitely use Maciej again and we have recommended him to our friends also.

Old Town Guided Walking Tour Wroclaw
During a 2.5 hr tour, we walked through the old town, including Sand and Cathedral Islands. Our guide Sean was an excellent guide with tremendous knowledge of everything in Wroclaw. Throughout Wroclaw, you can see gnomes everywhere, and Sean nicely inserted these funky creaturen in his journey.

Best private tour
Our driver Adam picked us up at 5 am which was very early but luckily he had pillows so we could continue sleeping. When we woke up he told us everything we wanted to know about Poland and a lot about the history of concentration camps. He was very helpful with showing us around. The guide in Auschwitz was somebody else but Adam walked with us to the guide so we were sure to find the right one. The tour is pricey but is totally worth it and I would definitely recommend everybody to go with Viadrina Tours.

Interesting, educative & immersive
A great walking tour of Wroclaw! We saw all the most important and most beautiful sights around this gorgeous city all in about 2.5 hours, including many adorable gnomes! Particularly if you have a short time in the city, or if you just want some help getting oriented, we highly recommend this tour!
