Excellent guide on Oskar Schindler's Traces Small Group Walking Tour
We booked the trip a day before, out of interest in Jewish history during the Second World War. We started from the old town, walked through the Jewish quarters, crossed the bridge into the formal ghetto area. Our group had 4 people, which is a very pleasant size. Our guide was knowledgeable, draw many reference to the movie Schindlers list. She focused not only on the movie itself, but also on history about the Jews. History definitely came alive during this tour, and we would highly recommend it. The tour ended at Schindler's factory. We didn't have time for the museum, and we took tram nr 24 back to the jewish quarters to explor further after the 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!

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.
Review by Olijr / TripAdvisor • November 24, 2016
We spent ten days in Krakow with 3 different tour operators. Definetely this (DiscoverCracow.eu) was the best one. We really regret we discovered this tour operator only at the end. The tour itself is very nice. Sightseeing marvelous (it was sunny). Museums and Art / Picture Galleries (inside some castles) beautiful and very well manteined. Mr. Pjotr, who guided us, was both professional and kind. He gave us also informations on other tours, and thank to his effective advice we got the opportunity to visit ourselves places we would have missed. We thank him very much. His vivid and passionate descriptions made us love more both Krakow and Polland.

Very interesting tour. A lot of history. Excellent guide! Small group. You se a bit of the countryside. A lot of walking (sometimes not so easy) and standing. Our 16 year old thougt it was too much information and too many castles. But he was interested in the torturechamber and the weapon-exhibition. The 18 year old who is very intersested in history enjoyed the trip more.

We had a great tour through Krakow with our guide, Tamara. She was passionate about culinary adventures and everything on our tour was very well organized and delicious. The tour was a delightful way to spend a Sunday afternoon! Highly recommend.

I enjoyed a great food tour with Tamara from Eat Krakow. We covered Polish street food, markets, casual and fine dining as well as dessert. Needless to say, we were pleasantly satiated! Tamara was an excellent tour guide and a passionate foodie - it's clear she loves her work. She kept the group moving at a good pace and was full of information about Polish cuisine. I recommend doing the tour at the start of your time in Krakow so you can take up her wonderful suggestions!
Review by fionalouise2109 / TripAdvisor • April 10, 2015
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.

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!
Review by MarksTeyTraveller / TripAdvisor • April 09, 2015
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.
Review by Linda A / TripAdvisor • April 09, 2015
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.

the Krakow Old Town Walking Tour is worth booking. We were lucky to meet Grzegorz Skalski as a licensed guide who is interested in his city history and able to share this special feeling with its guests.
Review by Irena S • February 25, 2015
Very well organised and a brilliant guide both on the coach and at the destinations. A must if going to Krakow. A very humbling and thought provoking experience that will stay with you forever in a good way.
