Wow! What a wonderful way to see so much in the city of Krakow. We spent two days visiting Auschwitz Concentration Camp and the Salt Mine in Krakow during the day while exploring the streets of Krakow late afternoon on into the evening. However, when we took this bike tour on the third day we saw so much that we would have missed if we didn't! Sylvia was so knowledgable about all of the sites and did a great job keeping our large group together. This is a must do! Just be sure your tires are well inflated and you have a bell to ring for pedestrians before you head out!

I am so glad that we booked the bike tour because we seen things that we may not have seen if touring by ourselves. The knowledge and history that Mike our tour guide had was unbelievable. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Well worth it.

Our cycling tour of Krakow was colourful and comprehensive. This was in large part due to our guide Tom being very enthusiastic and knowledgeable. The topography of the city makes an ideal location in which to cycle. We would highly recommend that anyone visiting Krakow should book a cycle tour through Viator. Thanks Tom.
