Sightseeing Bike Tour of Krakow

Enjoy a Sightseeing Bike Tour of Krakow on a comfortable beachcruiser

We bike pass a 900 year old market before riding along the Planty gardens to the Jaggiloninan University, where we walk inside the medieval courtyard and listen and watch as figures representing Queens of Poland's history chime the hour. We continue our journey to the Bishop's Palace for a glance at the famous window of Pope John Paul II, before glimpsing the old residence of Oscar Schindler. And what tour would be complete without a stop at the Wawel castle as well as the Dragon dwelling. Take pictures as the dragon breaths fire just for you!

Now its time for a relaxing ride along Krakow's Vistula river before entering the Krakow Ghetto and seeing remnants of the Ghetto wall. See remnants of Krakow's historical Jewish quarter known as Kazimierz. By this time your appetite has grown enough to enjoy a Polish meal in a traditional Polish restaurant. The restaurant is an old Jewish carpenter's shop, tailor shop, general store and a pantry. You will have the opportunity to sit amongst the authentic equipment and goods dating back to the 19th century, such as sewing machines, dresses, carpentry tools, and other objects once sold. There are also fragments of the walls that once divided the shops.

We begin our journey back from the restaurant through the bar saturated areas of Kazimierz, before we follow the royal route from behind the castle all the way to the resting area of Poland's only Leonardo De Vinci, Lady with Ermine. We stress that you do not have to be fit to do this tour. Krakow is completely flat and ideal for bike riding.

The guide met us at the Market Square right on time and gave us a quick introduction to the city before walking us to the bikes.
The bikes which were adjustable for height and sit up and beg style.
The ride took in the city centre, the Jewish quarter, the site of the ghetto, Schindler's factory and many other sites.
There was lunch in a Jewish/Polish restaurant and towards the end of the tour streets which had featured in the filming of Schindler's List.
The guide spoke excellent English and was very knowledgeable and he timed tour so that we saw clocks chiming on the hour and trumpeters playing from the church tower.
This was an excellent tour which I would absolutely recommend.

This is a great little tour of Krakow, not rushed, the guide knew the subject very well. We had a small group which allowed the guide 'personalise' the tour and spent lots of time answering all our enquiries. Well done!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

A lengthy trip, about 4 hours including about 40 mins for a late lunch around 2.45, but really worth the effort. A great way to see the town with a very knowledgeable guide. Krakow is cycle friendly and the trip covers about 12km on essentially flat ground.
