What You Can Expect

Best Krakow Half-Day Tour by Trabant

Krakow Half-Day Tour by Trabant

Krakow is an old city, even by European standards, and one of its greatest assets is the fact it has never been razed throughout its long and tumultuous history.

After being picked up in a genuine Trabant automobile, your tour begins with a visit to the Nowa Huta district, Krakow's famous communist enclave. Originally a gift from Stalin, the working-class quarter boasts some classic communist architecture. Your guide will share first-hand accounts of what it was like to live behind the Iron Curtain.

Next, you'll visit the city's historic burial mounds, some of which date back to pagan times. The mounds were built as a memorial to Poland's most famous leaders and provide great panoramas of the city. From this vantage point, your guide will point out some of Krakow's more unusual landmarks.

The tour ends with a trip to Krakow's Jewish quarter. After being razed by the Nazis during World War II, this area is slowly being revitalized and is now home to the city's artist community. It's lined with great pubs and cafés, and you will definitely want to come back later to enjoy Krakow's authentic nightlife.

This is a fantastic tour. Pick up from the hotel was punctual and the guide was brilliant. A great opportunity to see a completely different dimension of Poland and Krakow, with an excellent background commentary from the guide. The Trabant was great fun, and very memorable. We loved the little cafe in Nova Huta which had stopped in time, and we both felt that when we left the tour we had learned so much. This is a must do.

Great experience. It was well worth having our own private transport as we could decide where we wanted to go and how much time spent at each attraction. Our guide Lucas was very well informed and great company, so much so that we bought him lunch in a proper and fantastic Polish restaurant called Dorothy's Kitchen.
