My husband and I had our tour guide, Mike, all to ourselves on a beautiful day in Krakow. The cycling was easy, nice and flat and though the cycles weren't the newest I've seen, they were comfortable and pleasant to ride. Mike was knowledgable, stopping every few minutes to give us info on various buildings and statues and other sights. We cycled along the river on the cycle paths, over a bridge, leaving the Old town behind us and heading into the ghetto and on to the Schindler factory. We stopped for lunch at a fascinating little restaurant in the old Jewish area, Kazimierz, before heading back into town. I was so glad we did this tour as it gave us a much better feel for where everything was and we wouldn't have learned anywhere near as much on our own. And it was so much more fun (and cheaper) than the electric tour cars that do some of the sights we visited. I would heartily recommend this to anyone visiting Krakow.

We had a great afternoon riding around Krakow with Mike. This is a great tour to start with when arriving in Krakow. It is a great way to orientate yourself with the city. Not a strenuous tour, very flat no hills to contend with.
Mike the tour guide was extremely informative and interesting showing us the major historical sites of the city. We had lunch en route and meandered back to Krakow main square. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone

Excellent, Mike excellent guide but main problem was negotiating Krakow traffic. No helmets provided so you pays your money and takes your chance! Mike does tend to race off ahead so trying to keep up was sometimes a problem but I survived! Nice place for lunch.

FANTASTIC tour! The tour guide (Mike) was awesome - extremely knowledgeable and personable. We had beautiful weather (actually it was 39.9 celsius that day) and biked all over the city. This is definitely my new favourite way to tour a city from now on! Krakow is full of history and fun facts, not to mention beauty... so get on it and book this tour - you won't be disappointed!

Was anxious but excited about this trip as i'd not rode a bike for 25 years but soon got the hang of it and Mike our tour guide was sympathetic! Mike was friendly, very knowledgeable, and he answered all of our questions about the city and the history, he made the tour fun too!!. We rode for around 14km and it was so much fun. We covered everything from the main square, the churches, basilica, jewish quarter and ghetto, schindler's factory, the river, castle, and much more. This was by far the best tour of Krakow and would recommend everybody who visits to go on this amazing tour.

This was worthwhile tour, informative, a great way to a good look around and most of friendly. Bikes were well maintained, the only cause of concern is if you are from a country where you drive on the left side of the road, be aware :-) Otherwise it is great and I would do it again, it equals perhaps even surpasses the city tours by the golf cart operators. Enjoy.

Very enjoyable bike ride, for beginners sometimes it was very congested. Very different way to see the sites and the tour guide was very patient with everybody and introduced us to a great resturant. Would do this again.

Absolutely brilliant tour. A great way to get an overview of a wonderful city. We took 2 children aged 10 and 11 and they enjoyed it too. Very informative and well paced.

We were there for 9am, it started at 12pm, our fault! We turned up again at 12 and were the only 2! Our guide was fantastic and a good laugh. He went slowly (for my sake) and was full of interesting information. There were only a couple of places where we had to cross or ride on roads that we found a little hairy, but then we're not bikers. We stopped outside of Schindler's factory and he told us how to get there from our hotel for a visit. A stop in the Jewish quarter in a very old Jewish cafe made the day. Even if you're not a biker, it is a must for all who can balance on a bike as it set us up for where to walk to on our own, into areas we'd never given much thought to. Well recommended.
