Did not get picked up and waited about 40 mins! Hotel said they couldn't get through to them so we walked to tourist information and asked them to call. They were full of apologies and said it was because we hadn't called the previous day (our voucher did not say to do so), so they rearranged a 3pm p
Our guide was entertaining and knowledgable about nowa hutta and the rise and fall of communism. We had a more entertaining ride in a hot pink trabant with leopard spots. Definitely made people laugh!

Found the tour very interesting with our very friendly guide Ulrik giving us a really informitive insight into the history of Krakow, its surrounding hinterland and indeed the history of Poland itself.

Good tour and an ideal way to see Krakow. Pity Jenson Button was behind the wheel, fun though, other than that, it's a tour I wouldn't have missed. The local tour company is great, would do it again, yes

The Trabant was hilarious! Totally different kind of tour for us. It was funny that everyone was staring at us cause of the car.
I would not recommend this tour to anyone unless they had already toured the city and just wanted a terribly uncomfortable ride around the city. Granted I was not feeling well that day and the ride only made things worse, but felt the tour itself left a lot to be desired. The initial long ride followed by a long climb up some fortress just to see a view of the city seemed a waste of time. Saw a very ugly side of Krakow during this tour. Luckily my husband and I went to the Shindler museum followed by dinner in the Old Town Sqaure that were the only highlights of this stay. Several people said they took the "free tour" offered and weew extremely pleased. They were taken into the Jewish Quarter and Old Town rather than just shown where they were. Our guide said he was unable to show us Old Town because cars were not allowed. Would rather have parked outside and walked in than gone to the top of that fortress. Our guide Cuba was a very nice young man and tried to accomodate me as best as possible. What sounded like a fun day turned out to be a total waste of time.

Car and guide were fun and the visit to Nova Huta was interesting but sitting in a communist cafe and being given a modern history lesson with a few photos and only being taken to the front gates of the steelworks was a waste of time. Also, no visit to Kazimierz the old Jewish quarter, where Schindler's List was filmed as it was Easter Sunday - even though the tour guide was a self-declared atheist!!
