A 2.5hr tour squeezed into a 1960s Trabant may not be everyone's idea of fun, fun, fun but this enterprise and its young staff sure know how to make it a success. Our guide was a university student with plenty of local knowledge -- including about the inner workings of the two-stroke miracle of Communist vehicle engineering -- if not... More

Excellent afternoon with the Crazy Guides. Typical warm welcome when they picked us up at the hotel in 2 Trabants. Crazy drive into the old communist centre with excellent local cuisine in a Milk Bar - with the added attraction of a local drunk taking offence with the Capitalist Westerners. Amazing drive as the rain came down in buckets without... More

While visiting Krakow we spent a very informative and fun 4 hours with our Crazy Guides' tour guide visiting Nova Huta on their "Deluxe Communism" tour. The indepth look at life under communism in Poland was very interesting and hands on, as we were able to drive the Trabant, eat in a traditional Milk Bar, visit a "50s" style apartment,... More

We booked ourselves onto a communism tour for our last day and really did not know what to expect, but we are both SO glad that we went for it. It was easy to book - all we had to do was email them, and then we were picked up dead on time by our tour guide in his great... More

We toured Nowa Huta and had a wonderful time. Our guide picked us up in a brightly-colored car from the era of the Iron Curtain and took us on a tour of the city set up during the Communist era. Our guide was very knowledgeable, and gave us a history of Nowa Huta. He was friendly and a lot of... More

The Crazy Guide Tour was a lot of fun, but I knew it from the very beginning. Our guide, Gosia, was terrific and handsome, with an healthy ironical attidute in telling stories about the "commies good old days". For someone like me, with a passion for some architectures of the Fifties in Central Europe, was a glorius day. Gosia told... More

This tour is probably not something I would have done unless the previous reviews on TripAdvisor had been so positive. I decided to give it a shot, and it was worth every moment. Getting "chauffeured" in a Trabant makes for such a unique experience. Part of the fun was wondering whether or not the car was actually going to make... More

We loved our afternoon driving around in the Trabant and talking about all things Polish, not just communism. For example, our guide (who was smart and nice and whose name I'm so sorry I don't have --J....) gave a good theory for a real puzzle: why 400 people were waiting in line for ice cream at one particular place in...

Crazy Guides was an expected "win" in Krakow. Our guide (Johanna) made our Polish Food Tour so fun and engaging, and then we were thrilled when she surprised us for our second tour to drive the Trabant. So fun! How often do you get to try to drive a (stick shift) former-soviet era vehicle on a dirt, back road?!

This is a fun little tour where you get driven around in a Trabant. Our guide spoke good English and gave us lots of information on communist Poland. Most of the information came from his parents who lived it. I would have like to have seen some of the steel mill that the communists built but it is owned by... More
