    What a fun, quirky and informative tour. Having booked the 2.5hr Nowa Huta tour, we zoomed around town in a noisy, stinky, bouncy blue Trabant. And it was brilliant! The tour guide was knowledgeable...

    Really well organised and informative tour. A great insight into life during the communist era. The guides managed to make what could have been a dreary tour fun and engaging.
