The tour was great, our guide Sabina was fantastic, was passionate about the city and was so knowledgable! There was just our group on the tour which was nice. As well as the tour itself being great, being on the scooters meant you can cover so much more ground and see more! Not to mention they are great fun and we all now want one!!!! Would recommend to anybody!

Starts off a little slow but gets very interesting as you progress through the day, I highly recommend ending the day in the cellar pub in the Old Town, grabbing a bite to eat off the square (really amazing food and not at all expensive) for lunch is a great idea.

Very informative trip, saw everything we wanted to see and more. Our driver Michal was lovely, would recommend trip to anyone. Tip, do the tour when you first arrive as you see so many lovely places to visit.

It was a funny and informative afternoon. The guide is really great and has a great knowledge of Kraków. I can only recommend this tour :)

Lovely way to tour around the city. Great bikes but the best part was our lovely guide Seweryn. Definitely recommend this tour. Thanks
