I took part in the communist tour and the Shooting experience. Both took place in a class car (Trabant) The communist tour was very good and very worthwhile, I wouldn't quite say excellent but very very worthwhile to see a bit of modern history, you had to remember communism was active less than 30 years ago. This is still a... More

Our very sympathetic guide, Gosia, took us to a time travel tour of Nowa Huta in a trabant ! A very special moment, and a very interesting tour. We've learnt a lot about the recent history of Poland, from a citizen's point of view. For those interested in architecture and urbanism, this tour is also a must. Overall, probably the... More

Jurek picked us up from the hotel on time and I knew from that moment we were going to get on well. We had a chat while waiting for my Norwegian friend Rayner to finish whatever he was doing in the room and headed off to Nova Huta in our 600cc Trabant. Jurek's way of presentation is completely natural. He... More

We had Kuba as our guide, was knowledgable and fun. The car wS good fun. It's nice to get out of the town and see a side of Kraków you didn't know was there. Good value for money and some history. We paid at the end of the tour in cash. Probably better to do it as a group In... More

What a fun way to explore Nowa Huta....not a place you'd gravitate to as a tourist. It was fascinating to experience life in communist time from the milk bar (cafeteria), to the main square, the apartment pods, and a timewarp in a very small apartment that housed whole families. There was a lot of memorabilia displayed which further enhanced our... More

Our limo arrived promptly at our hotel, well a 2 stroke 600cc Trabant in authentic vomit brown colour did. We accelerated away and put the air con on, well opened the window. I was confused whether it allowed the exhaust fumes out or let more in. A Trabant smokes more than Port Talbot steel works. But fun. We had a... More

Learning about the Communist City of Nowa Huta was definitely enhanced by doing it in a Trabant! This is something I never thought I would do and certainly will not forget. We took the deluxe tour and were treated to a drink in a timeless restaurant, lunch in the "Milk Bar" canteen and vodka in the 1970's apartment. I think... More

I recently took the communism tour around Nova Huta and thoroughly enjoyed it! There's nothing like riding around town in a now defunct trabant, which sounds and smells like a lawn mower. It was hilarious to see how many people were giving us a 'thumbs" up when driving around town. My tour guide, which I am embarrassed as I forgot... More

I have somewhat of a fascination with the history of Communism and Eastern Europe during the cold war, and a trip to Krakow would not be complete without experiencing this and getting to see the whole different city that is Nowa Huta (quite literally, a city on its own within the city of Krakow!). I have done similar tours in... More

Honestly the best tour I've been on. Laid back, good fun and very informative. One to check out if you're not keen on large, impersonal tour groups. Our guide was fantastic company, the transport is exciting to say the least, and there is a surprising beauty to the communist era buildings of Nowa Huta. 5/5, 10/10, 100% success and full... More
