I'm not much for cars, but the Trabant turned out to be half the fun! Nice concept and great guide, Cornelia. The tour seemed pretty flexible. I had wished to see something of the huge steel mill (check satellite images!), but it was only possible to take a look outside the gates. Arka Pana was a highlight for me, awesome architecture.

We opted for the communism deluxe tour- it was as fantastic as everyone else says. We recommend the lemon vodka at the style bar and the pierogi at the milk bar.

This tour was a blast!!! There were four of us, so two Trabants showed up at our hotel and off we went for four hours of history and laughs. The guides were much fun and filled with fascinating info about life during communism along with lots of jokes about Uncle Joseph (Stalin). My mom is 84 and she said that this tour was the most fun she had during our entire visit to Poland. I'm a history buff, but until this tour had no idea of what life was actually like for people living under communism. Very informative and extremely entertaining!

I took part in the deluxe trip today and was absolutely amazing! The guide was such a great guy, I had a lot of laughs with him as well as an extremely extensive knowledge of Nowa Huta. I could write and wrote all day about my experience but it wouldn't do it justice, you're missing out for not going

Booked the Communism Deluxe tour on the internet before leaving the UK, having visited Nowa Huta on our own previously. It was brilliant from the moment of theTrabant's noisy arrival at our hotel! An excellent mix of history, personal knowledge and anecdotes. Our wonderful guide, Goshka, responded to our interests and questions and made it a really personal experience. Leisurely pace, with lots of time to talk and chat. We especially enjoyed our lunch at the Milk Bar where there was loads of choice, even for us vegetarians! The car was the star of the tour and quite an experience - getting to try our hand at driving was a challenge, but not to be forgotten. These tours are not just for the young!! Can't recommend it highly enough.
