Our tour of Gdansk, Poland was the biggest and best surpise of the ten countries we visited on our cruise. Maggie did an excellent job of showing us the sights and picking things we told her we were interested in seeing. She also showed genuine concern from my walking issue (stroke 7 years ago). She picked an excellent restaurant in Gdansk for our "local Polish" lunch of Perioges. it was an enjoyable day. The vehicle and driver she hired for our tour was excellent.
