Nice, casual and interesting
It was great to have such an easy going and fun guide with great personal insights from his own and his family's experience. Though it would have been nice to get more info on the history side and how it shaped Krakows society today. Otherwise, it was a refreshing interesting tour, far from the traditional touring experience!
Krakow Crazy Communism Tour in Trabant

Having done a similar tour in other Eastern European countries, we were keen to see the communist district of Nowa Huta and learn more about Kraków under communist rule. Our guide, Blazej, was absolutely brilliant - interesting, entertaining and incredibly friendly. He was really great to talk to and made the whole experience very enjoyable. He even managed not to laugh too hard when I fell over (very embarrassing!)
I was really impressed that, even though I booked the communist tour, they gave my friend a chance to drive the trabant on our request. They were very willing to make the tour work for us. The car was great fun and the sites we saw were interesting and provided a good contrast to the old town where we spent most of our time. It was nice also to sit in an unchanged restaurant, have some vodka and chat about both communist life and the more current problems faced by Poland.
A great morning, a great guide and a great experience. Thanks very much.

Most fun tour of our 7 week Europe trip
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. She was both knowledgeable and personable, and she spoke excellent English. Kornelia picked us up at our hotel in a lime green Trabant, which was fun to ride in, and our tour included lunch at one of the few "milk cafes" left from the time that the communists were in power. It was a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon, and I would highly recommend taking this tour while you are in Krakow. I promise that this is a tour that you will be telling your friends for months after you return home.

Communism Deluxe...best thing to do in Krakow
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 of Poland during the tough time of Communism. Apart from driving around Krakow in a cool Traby, you went to an old style MilkBar and ate traditional Polish dishes. We visited a typical apartment and drank Polish vodka. If you visit Krakow and have 4 hours to spare, this tour is a must. This was a true highlight of our time in Krakow even though it rained all day. The price of the tour is well worth it. Best money spent during our time in Krakow. Thanks for the memories Kuba, hope to see Krakow again real soon.

Awesome tour!
Ticket line incredibly long. Arrived without pre purchased tickets early afternoon, one ticket window open only, on line probably an hour behind possibly 150people. Took English speaking tour. Guide extremely knowledgeable. Wear sneakers! Cobblestone-like walking surface leads to tired feet. Beautiful, beautiful, carvings etc. very informative and amazing tour. We didn’t eat at restaurant but food looked and smelled delicious. Don’t miss museum tour at end. More to see outside mine when you exit. Leave a little time to walk around outside. Highly recommended.

Highlight of our trip to Krakow
I can't recommend the deluxe trabant tour enough.

Firstly Nova Huta is a really cool and unique place and not something you are going to see in other ex-comunist cities. It is a soviet version of paris rather than a string of tower blocks.

Secondly our tour guide was really great and we absolutely loved driving around in the Trabant. The deluxe tour gave us extra time to explore and my wife fell in love with the Milk Bar pierogis.

The Communist tour was part of a four day trip to Krakow, and was one of the highlights. Marieck our guide and driver was very enthusiastic and knowledgable. Driving around in an old Trabant, learning about life under communism was so interesting and left us wanting to learn more. The lunch at the milk bar was tasty and different. Would definitely recommend this tour and the guides. Thank you for an interesting and enjoyable morning.

Interesting tour exploring life behind the Iron Curtain
I booked this tour for my parents and me (a little bit difficult for an elderly person to squeeze into the back of the Trabant, but not impossible). Our guide Claudia was very informative and personable. We learned a lot about life in Poland under communism; sampled some vodka and received an excellent recommendation for dumplings. The tour gives you an opportunity to see a totally different side to Krakow. I would recommend.

Great tour!
The tour was absolutely worth every penny. The guide knew everything about the Nova Huta area, drove the Trabant like a goddess and was also really nice and easy going.

We were shown the lots of parts from area, went to a genuine shop, had a coffe and were invited to a well preserved flat. Everything accompanied with lots of facts from our guide.

Well worth the money!

Great experience
The guide, Natalia, is professional, funny and friendly; it made the photoshoot a great experience, where I could relax and be comfortable.

Not only was the photoshoot great, however, our conversation about the city and history regarding Krakow was also pleasant.

Used Crazy Guides for a tour of the historic Communist area of Krakow. Our guide Kornela was wonderful and made our time with her thoroughly enjoyable. This tour included being picked up and driven around in a Trabant and I was even allowed a go at driving it!

We went on this tour with Kuba and had a brilliant time driving around in the Trabant, learning about life under communism and the propaganda. Kuba's friendly relaxed nature made it a brilliant day, the vodka and cafes made it a memorable day.

Nowa Huta great trip!
Our guide was friendly and informative. It was great travelling in the Trabant and visiting the Milk Bar. Watching the propaganda film in the authentic appartment drinking Vodka took us back in time. Highly recommend this trip.
