A meaningful journey back in time

This tour was certainly the highlight of our weekend in Krakow over the bank holiday weekend. Our guide, Maciej, made the tour a very special experience in being both passionate and very knowledgeable about the development of the Nowa Huta area and Poland during Communism. Maciej was able to relate his family’s experience of living and working in the Soviet inspired new town which greatly benefited the historical context. The tour was very well organised, my wife particularly liked the folder of communist era photographs shown to us at the oldest cafe in Nowa Huta - a very welcome coffee break- whilst I loved the civil defence bunker - a real time capsule to the 1970s/1980s Cold War. Our Trabant ride greatly enhanced the experience with the rain dripping in through the roof just adding to the authenticity! Highly recommended for those looking to do something a bit different in Krakow….

The best thing to do in Krakow

I loved this experience. The tour was probably one of the best thing that I have experienced in Krakow. Thanks also to our driver who was fantastic. She brought us in a total different area from the city center, something that probably the occasional tourist wouldn't go visit by himself. The Communist tour was really interesting and the guide/driver explained lots of things. We ended up eating in the most traditional milkbar and it was an amazing experience. Thanks a lot!

Great little tour, liked the guide. The Trabant really added to the immersive experience. Works well as a short trip when visiting Auschwitz on Saturday and filling the time before the airport on the Sunday morning. Our guide even drove us to the airport and saved us the price of a taxi.

We were touring Eastern Europe for a month. This tour was a major highlight of our trip. The itinerary was very well thought out. Touring Nowa Huta, the Soviet « utopian » city in an era car and experiencing a little bit what it was like to live there (including the propaganda) far exceeded our expectations. What really made the trip was our guide. Claudia is a outstanding young woman. Her knowledge and passion made a deep impression on us in helping to understand life in Cold War Kraków. And her mastery of the ancient Trabant is fantastic. We would strongly recommend this tour with Claudia.

Our lovely guide Cornelia was as funny and fun as the car, and the areas she took us weren't covered by any other tour. After you've done the conventional tours, try this one for an unforgettable experience.

The tour is very engaging and interesting, you learn so much and riding in the Trabant is exciting if not a little scary. Our tour guide Maciek (apologies if misspelt) was fantastic and very friendly, it was a great experience overall and I definitely recommend to anyone visiting Krakow.

The driving experience is great and completely authentic - uncomfortable, noisey plus you feel vulnerable in traffic, and the overall feeling that the 33 year old car you are travelling in may not actually make it to your destination. The guide was young and well trained, but perhaps lacked the depth of experience and knowledge than somebody that may have lived through the era would have had. Our main issue with the tour was that we were placed together with another group which negatively impacted the entire experience for us. It was hard to see why this was necessary as we had two guides, two cars and in our view was totally avoidable. A private tour should be as advertised.

TOUR OPERATOR COMMENT: Thank you for your feedback. I'm glad to hear that you liked the experience (the car, the guide and the concept). I'm sorry though that you did not feel comfortable with sharing this experience with other travelers. It happens occasionally that guides follow the same route if they meet in Nowa Huta with our guests on same tour. We look into this issue more comprehensively to avoid further unpleasant situations. Once again I'm sorry for the inconvenience.

Highlight of my trip to Krakow. I left the tour with so much new knowledge about Poland and Krakow. Our guide was very sweet and she even drove me to wherever I had to go afterwards. Would definitely recommend this tour to anyone who has an interest in communist Europe.
