Vodka shots and pickle to go with Nowa Huta apartment visit. We are converted communists now😉 A must if visiting Krakow

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

Our tour of Nowa Huta in a Trabant was one of the most fun, fascinating things we did on our Eastern European trip. The two guides were so incredibly knowledgeable about the creation of this model Communist city outside Krakow. Highly recommend!!!

A friend and I booked the Communism Deluxe tour in late May 2016. We were picked up at our hotel in a green Trabant by the best crazy tour guide ever...Kuba M. He was relaxed, fun to spend time with. Knew how to be informative and fun throughout the tour. You really got to experience the sights, sounds and tastes... More

Contacted Crazy Guides to arrange for 6 people to go shooting in Kraków. The communication was great and they managed to arrange it at short notice. They driver picked us up in a large minibus and took us to the range, Grotgun Shooting Range. We had 3 guns each with an option to fire additional guns at an extra charge.... More

This is a fun way to get away from the historical centre and find out about the recent Soviet history of Kraków. A short tour of the new town of Nowa Huta, built by the Soviets in a grand Parisian style and then somewhat ruined by sticking the worlds biggest steelworks next to / in it! Half the fun of... More
