I was picked up from my hotel by young Polish guide Weronika in her 1988 bright green Trabant 604S. Also on board was cheery Australian traveller Brian. With the street's pedestrians staring wide eyed and open mouthed, we chugged out of the Old Town and hit the streets to Nowa Huta. Just off Ronald Reagan Square we ditched the Trabby,... More

Our guide Izabella was brilliant! Spoke, drove and toured in a manner loyal to the 'Crazy' title - she has been a blast. We learned a ton about the History of Nowa Huta and of Poland, saw a lot, and experienced a lot. It's well worth the money and the time and would be a huge huge miss if you... More

We spent seven weeks touring various cities in eastern Europe, and our tour in Krakow with Crazy Guides was one of the highlights of our trip. We took the Deluxe Communism tour, which goes to the communist community, Nowa Huta, which was established by Stalin as the "model" communist community after WW2. Our guide was Kornelia, and she was terrific.... More

First time I did this tour was in 2007 with my class of tourism & recreation management. We absolutely, totally, completely loved the experience. We had a party van and a few small trabants on the tour. It was the coolest, alternative tour I had ever done and a great way to learn more about what life was like in... More

We had a 2,5h ride to Nowa Huta with a lovely & well educated local guide in an old Trabant. It was an amazing and unique experience for us as westeners.

We scheduled a genuine Communist airport pickup with transfer to our hotel by Trabant. I was expecting the guide to be in character as a good Communist from the 1980s and was prepared to play along. However the Communist act was minimal, which was a bit of a letdown, but it also might have been hard to keep up the... More

When in Krakow you definitely have to do the communist tour. Interesting, fun and overall very enjoyable -you will see things that we don't typically have in the west. You will be driven around in a Trabant and visit what was communist Krakow. Our host, Karolina was great fun with an awesome sense of humour. A brilliant way to fill... More

Our experience with Crazy tour was the highlight of our time in Krakow. My 14 year old grandson and I took the tour with a delightful young lady called Veronica, whose bright personality and clever wit kept us fully entertained. While she may have been to young to remember much of communist rule she had obviously gathered stories from her... More
