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

Arrived to be picked up by Kuba and his old Communist car a Trabant. What a great gimmick. He then proceeded to pour vodka shots and supply us with gherkins before we left the airport carpark. Great start and a classic old car. We then did the tour of Nowa Huta. Interesting but not what I would put on the... More

A great tour, our guide, Kornelia, picked us up in a Trabant and we rattled and bumped in this piece of East German mechanical magic to Nowa Huta, Stalin's 'Utopia' outside Krakow. She was very knowledgeable, informative and fun. The journey was an experience in itself! We stopped in a Communist bar and she explained the origins, construction and anecdotes... More

I did the communist tour and enjoyed it the day. Because one of the other members of the tour wanted to do the deluxe tour I had to go along to that, although the company kindly only charged for the standard tour. However, having said that I really think the standard tour is more than enough time. Crazy Guides obviously... More

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

This Tour was as good as eveyone says. I enjoyed everything about it. The car was so fun to be in and drive. Our tour guide Marek Kielbasa made it such a unique guide and like no other i have experienced. It's a great way to get a unique outlook on Krakow and see how the real Krakovians live their... More
