The owner and guide for the pushbike tour was Mike. He was on time at the meeting point and very easy to talk to. The tour went for 4 hours and Mike had organised lunch at a restaurant in the Jewish Quarter (own expense, a great traditional Polish meal at a special tour price). Mike was extremely knowledgeable and took the tour at an easy pace. Mike was very happy to stop and start to allow us to take photos along the way. The push bikes had wide tyres and even better for the girls, wide seats!!! Very enjoyable tour and worth the money. I'm 54 years old and hadn't ridden a bike in some time but thoroughly enjoyed the day.
Tour guide Mike was excellent. Saw a great deal of the city of Krakow, excellent for a first thing to do!
Absolutely Fabulous! Not only very enjoyable but also truly informative - almost wish I had taken notes or had a little voice recorder to keep all of my facts straight! Mike was my tour guide - Born in Poland, raised in Canada, so his English and Polish speaking skills were perfect. Even took me to lunch where "the locals" hang out. covered roughly 10 miles of history in 1 day
The weather was a bit cold and rainy, but Mike was willing to brave the elements with us and show us interesting places in Krackow. Mike was very knowledgeable about Krackow history and the culture. We had lunch at a very quaint Jewish restaurant in Kazimierez and Mike gave us recommendations for meals and things to do for the rest of our time in Krackow. Seeing Krackow by bike was definitely worth the small fee you'll pay for this unique and interesting tour.
Beautiful city and what a great way to see it. Out in the open with fresh air and a little exercise. The guide was great and we saw a lot of places I know would be missed if one just took a bus tour.
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.
What a great way to see Krakow !! We really enjoyed the tour and our guide was great !
Very good tour, with a small group and excellent guide. The lunch stop was particularly good
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.
Was a great way to see the city and my daughter and I enjoyed it immensely and highly recommend this as a way to see the city. The gentleman who took us on the tour was extremely knowledgeable and made the tour very interesting. Loved it
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.
Brilliant!!! We would recommend it to anybody, who would like to discover the real Krakow, it's history, people, fantastic places, the soul of the city. Tour guide- kind, friendly and very knowledgable:)
Excellent tour! Great way to see the sights of Krakow, Mike (the guide) was fantastic, his knowledge and enthusium made the trip. Would recommend the bike tour to all who visit the city.
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.
Suberb cycle ride round Krakow with an excellent guide! Useful orientation around the city with a well informed, friendly guide. Much more efficient than walking the route, and a lot more fun. Highly recommend it!
excellent excellent excellent!! could not recommend highly enough, we saw so much that we would not have seen on our own, mike our guide was brilliant.
EXCELLENT, EXCELLENT, EXCELLENT. We didnt get the weather but our guide mike made up for it. The tour was informative, extensive and extremely interesting. Where we stopped for lunch was also some of the best cuisine we sampled in Krakow. Its a fun, energetic way to see and learn the history of the city. Its a must for anyone going to Krakow, its a leisurely cycle, with no hills, almost relaxing!!!
