A sunny day, a lime green Trabant, the Communism Deluxe Tour: off we went in a puff of smoke (well, exhaust really - they are a 2-stroke after all) to spend the morning with our new friend and driver, Blazej, exploring Stalin's post-war gift to Poland - Nowa Huta. Would wholeheartedly endorse all the good things that have been said... More

I took the Community Deluxe Tour with Crazy Guides. Our guide was, J-something, young 27 year old guy. He knew some of the history since his grandmother was part of this Nowa Huta settlement. Since I didn't have access to a car there, I would have missed this cool place if I hadn't taken this tour--and, to me, it was... More

Loved getting picked up and driven around in a Trabi car. Our guide Jarek was not certifiably crazy but he was knowledgable and informative. Sampling some fare at the Milk Bar and visiting the Communist-era Apartment were highlights. We like leaning about the history of Nowa Huta and Kraków during these times. Our guide was also patient with our fellow... More

Due to rain being incompatible with the Trabant cars used by the normal tour, we elected to go to the shooting gallery offered as a separate tour. You were allowed to shoot a variety of guns from pistols to shotguns, an Uzi and a Kalashnikov AK 47. The attendant was ex-Polish Army and made sure every thing was safe and... More

This wasn't on the main to-do list so we did this towards the end of the holiday when we had all the other done. We VERY nearly didnt do it and what a shame that would have been! We were told the guide may be a few minutes late on arrival (due to traffic and the car) but he was... More

They really do cater for everyone and bring a new dimension to the term "Personal Tour". There's nothing "crazy" about them. They are organised,personable and very helpful. There really are no problems. You'll have a wonderful day out. Well, that's not strictly true, especially if you really have time for only one tour. Which one do you choose? Personally, I... More

The Communist tour was part of a four day trip to Krakow, and was one of the highlights. Marieck our guide and driver was very enthusiastic and knowledgable. Driving around in an old Trabant, learning about life under communism was so interesting and left us wanting to learn more. The lunch at the milk bar was tasty and different. Would... More

After coming across Crazy Guides on the internet we booked a 2.5 hour Communism tour visiting Nowa Hota, an old style cafe, (drink included), steel works, and all done in an old Trabant. Communism isn't something I know a great lot about, but I wanted to educate myself further and this tour proved a great insight into what life was... More
