A Recent Review of this tour

I had a 48 business trip to Sopot planned and wanted to visit Gdansk. I followed the Solidarity movement during the 80's and wanted a tour with someone who could provide good historical and economic perspective. Michael picked me up at the airport and took me to the European Solidarity Center, the center of Gdansk, and then dropped me at the Grand in Sopot. An intense 5 hours with me firing questions no stop. Michael very knowledgeable and friendly. A hectic and enjoyable 5 hours
