“Excellent tour - do not miss it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2009

I think that we were the first to do the tour this year (26th Feb). This is by far the best bike tour that I've ever been on, it is a brilliant way to get your bearings in Krakow. Our guide John was excellent, very knowledgeable about the history and culture of Krakow and he gave us some top tips to get the most out of our trip. This is a tour for all age groups (99% flat) and is an absoute bargain (60 PLN - for 4 hours)!

I cannot recommend this tour enough!

Thanks for the kind words & we're glad you had great time with us. Just a quick note here to let anyone else reading know that after seven years at the same price, we've had to raise it just a bit to 70pln (currently around 14 pounds). Let's hope it's another seven years before it has to change again!

“Excellent way to see more”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2008

We've been to Krakow three times now but learned more in four hours this last time than the first two trips combined. We were a bit afraid that the pace would be too much for us (we're both 55+), but truth be told it was easier and less tiring than walking the same route would have been. Also great for seeing places that we probably wouldn't find on our own like Schindler's factory & the Jewish ghetto. Fantastic time & well worth it.

“Krakow Bike Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2008

We read review for this tour and plumped for it. I am so glad we did. Our guide Philip was extremely knowlegeable, friendly the pace was perfect (as was the day) We had an absolutely BRILLIANT time and couldn't recommend it highly enough. Do it at the start of your break if you can as you get a very good overall picture of the city and its areas of interest/ culture. It combined most elements of the individual more specialised tours and rolled them into one great afternoon.

“2 days of sightseeing in a few hours”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2008

We found this English guided cycle tour a great way to orientate ourselves in Krakow and see places we might not have seen by ourselves. The guide, John, was excellent- keeping the group together and safe. He is a brilliant guide telling the stories and history with an engaging delivery. The 4 hour tour seemed all too short even though we had visited many sights, for example-"Krakow's beautiful old town; the main square; the Dragon of Wawel (pronounced Varvel) Castle; the Jewish cemetery; Kazimierz, the old Jewish quarter; a ride along the Vistula river; the Jewish ghetto from WW2 and the ghetto wall; the monument to the missing people; Oscar Shindler's factory and locations from the film Shindler's List and a fantastic panoramic view from a vantage point and more. 60PLN- was a very reasonable charge- roughly £15 for 4 hours!!!

The bikes are well maintained and easy to ride- great care is taken to ensure everyone is comfortable with their bike.

We also hired bikes a couple of days later- a very easy process- a lock is included in the very reasonable price.
