We booked the Communism de luxe tour. The arrival of the Trabant at our four star hotel drew some interest. Maciej, our driver and guide, squeezed us into the vehicle. His first words were that as the Trabant was old we should be prepared to push is so required. What followed was four hours of good entertainment. A Krakow tour,... More

These tours prove that Communism (when safely locked away in the past) can be interesting - or even funny. It also showed that the age of miracles has not passed; as proved when our Trabi stalled in a traffic jam. We sat there, serenely certain that our guide could get it going again - and he did. It reminded us... More

My 20+ daughter suggested this and I cannot say enough positive things about it. The 20+ woman giving the tour was very personable and painted a picture of what living in the Communist Era was like (not all bad). The apartment we toured was small by USA standards, but she pointed out that the people came from the country side... More

Having ground up during the Cold War and watching movies about it, I thought I was on formed; but ti be on the "Communism Deluxe" with Jureg was observing the real thing. We drove around in the Trabant at 23 hp. And we visited a planned soviet town and visited still in the soviet era time warp. Don't miss it!

Also the drive there was interesting to see... More

I had a great tour. I really felt like spending a normal and funny Saturday morning hanging around with a friend, walking and driving the streets, having a coffee, eating lunch, but also learning and experiencing very interesting things about Nowa Huta.
