Highlight of my trip to Krakow. I left the tour with so much new knowledge about Poland and Krakow. Our guide was very sweet and she even drove me to wherever I had to go afterwards. Would definitely recommend this tour to anyone who has an interest in communist Europe.

If you visit Krakow and have any interest in the recent history of Poland you would be doing yourself a dis-service by not booking this tour. I highly recommend the deluxe tour as it also includes lunch in one of the legendary milkbars of the communist era. Sparse, but delicious. Also, if you have the ability to ask for a specific tour guide you must request Agnieszka Masternak. Not only is her English immaculate, but her knowledge and personal experiences of the transition from communism to capitalism made the tour and experience that much more enriching. A must if visiting Krakow.

Absolutely brilliant tour with Maciek whose knowledge of local history and depth of knowledge about Krakow made this a really memorable trip in a lime green trabant.
A must do if visiting this city.

We did the deluxe tour and I can't recommend the tour enough. It was the best thing that we did in Krakow.

What I didn't realise before I got there was that Nova Huta is a really special place and one of a handful of towns that are built in the Socialist Realist style in the former Soviet Union. It was an attempt to create a workers utopia through town planning and architecture, rather than how to build housing as cheaply as possible. As a result it had much more in common with a city like Paris than a Soviet sprawl of tower blocks.

The result was a fantastic guide taking us around an extraordinary place in a wonderful car, it was simply brilliant. The deluxe tour allowed us to see a bit more of what it was like in communist times and the lunch was delicious.

We were so fortunate to have Carolina as our guide. She was full of good information and fun to be with. We were especially interested in learning about Krakow during the Communist era, and this tour did exactly that. We even had a chance to visit an apartment that was furnished as it would have been during that time. The pictures and video added so much, in addition to being able to see how families lived during that time. It was an amazing four hours, and we highly recommend it.

What an amazingly fun time! From the moment our guide met us, folks marveled after his lime-green Trabant parked near our hotel at Wawel Castle, and were taking photos. So, it was a heady and unique experience even from the start. Nowa Huta was fascinating on all levels. While we were more interested in politics initially, we also came to learn lots about architecture, food and culture. And also about the Trabant itself. The shag carpet in the back seat was kinda the best thing ever! This tour is an easy and complete mix of fun, adventure and education, with a warmly personable and knowledgeable guide. Most highly recommended.

What a great tour, the authentic green Trabant - great! Our tour guide was fantastic, we must thank her for a really enjoyable trip, very knowledgeable, an all round lovely person, and we do hope that she will be able to go on and finish her studies as well. Cannot thank her enough for her insights and anecdotes into both the communist history in general and also how her family lived within the communist system.
Would we do this again - you betcha!

Nice couple of hours in rainy Krakow - funny guide, very relaxed atmosphere and unhurried cruising around in a Trabant, of course! I truly enjoyed this tour and the history of Nowa Huta the guide explained while we two visitors were sipping some Polish beer. Warmly recommended.

We were lucky enough to have an authentic Trabant for this trip. The guide was very knowledgeable and put us ease immediately. The meal in the milk bar was certainly different and something I'm glad I experienced. Highly recommended.

On the recommendation of other Viator respondents I booked the Deluxe tour and was not disappointed. The experience was brilliant and the guide outstanding. Driving the Trabant was great fun and perhaps the highlight of the visit to Nova Huta. We had coffee at an old haunt of the communist elite and lunch at a state supported worker's cafeteria called a Milk Bar. The tour of a worker's flat was also spot-on, especially the traditional welcome shot of vodka and pickle. The added experiences and time that are part of the Deluxe tour made for a memorable outing.

This was fantastic! The guide was lovely, very informative and the information was interesting. I really enjoyed having a go at driving the trabant and my son (who has not yet learnt to drive) was very jelous. Great half day trip - well worth doing!

This was the best time we had in krakow. Peter our guide was very informative and intelligent. He was also very funny and kept us entertained with anecdotes throughout our trip to nova huta. We both had a turn at driving the trabant on some waste ground and this was the cherry on the cake.

This is a must do trip if you are in Krakow. Olek was a great host and full of relevant and unique information. Traveling by Trabant is both an experience and an adventure.(pushing skills useful!) Upgrade to the deluxe trip - you will need the time. Thanks again for a great trip
