What You Can Expect
This guided tour is complete with transportation in genuine Trabant automobiles - cars manufactured by the Eastern Bloc specialists.

Upgrade to the Communism DELUXE Tour in Krakow (4 hours):
The Communism DELUXE Tour upgrade is a must-do for any visitor to Krakow! This tour was recently made famous by travel documentary maker Michael Palin after his feature in 'Palins New Europe' series in 2007. Also recommended by the BBC, Reuters, New York Times, Lonely Planet guidebooks and many others. An extended version of the standard Communism Tour in a Trabant automobile, the Communism Deluxe tour includes a trip to a Communist-era restaurant and guided visit to our private museum. Explore everyday life in Poland in the 1970's in our exclusive and unchanged Communist apartment. This deluxe tour includes the rare opportunity to eat pickled cucumbers and toast times past with Communist relic, Mr. Vieslav (upon request). You can also try your hand at driving the trusty Trabant. Enjoy lunch in an authentic Commie milk bar canteen.
Nice couple of hours in rainy Krakow - funny guide, very relaxed atmosphere and unhurried cruising around in a Trabant, of course! I truly enjoyed this tour and the history of Nowa Huta the guide explained while we two visitors were sipping some Polish beer. Warmly recommended.
This tour was great! The tour guide was incredibly knowledgeable and friendly. I had a lot of fun and learned quite a bit. Would recommend this tour to anyone interested in the communist era.
A million thanks to Maciej (i think that's the right spelling) for providing the highlight of a fantastic 4 days in Cracow.He was an genuinely knowledgeable,enthusiast with an obvious passion for his polish history.The more we asked questions the more accommodating he was.This introduction to Polish communism is a must,augmented by period car travel.Dont hesitate,get booking!!

We were lucky enough to have an authentic Trabant for this trip. The guide was very knowledgeable and put us ease immediately. The meal in the milk bar was certainly different and something I'm glad I experienced. Highly recommended.
Excellent tour. The guide was friendly, informative and was very willing to anwser all questions. Would strongly recommend.
Was fun riding in a Trabant and enjoyed the milk bar
Fantastic. Very unusual. Drivers/guides excellent knowledge and very good English.
On the recommendation of other Viator respondents I booked the Deluxe tour and was not disappointed. The experience was brilliant and the guide outstanding. Driving the Trabant was great fun and perhaps the highlight of the visit to Nova Huta. We had coffee at an old haunt of the communist elite and lunch at a state supported worker's cafeteria called a Milk Bar. The tour of a worker's flat was also spot-on, especially the traditional welcome shot of vodka and pickle. The added experiences and time that are part of the Deluxe tour made for a memorable outing.
This was fantastic! The guide was lovely, very informative and the information was interesting. I really enjoyed having a go at driving the trabant and my son (who has not yet learnt to drive) was very jelous. Great half day trip - well worth doing!

This was the best time we had in krakow. Peter our guide was very informative and intelligent. He was also very funny and kept us entertained with anecdotes throughout our trip to nova huta. We both had a turn at driving the trabant on some waste ground and this was the cherry on the cake.
