Due to rainy weather, we decided to not participate in the tour. They did offer us the opportunity to do the tour on another day, but our tour schedule did not permit it.

We were very fortunate to have Pawel take us on our bicycle tour of Krakow. We had so much fun and learned so much about the area that we would never have known. Our group was very small only 3 tourists which was great. Pawel told us about the local history, legends, and also some personal stories about himself and others that were entertaining and informative. Lunch was great and we very much enjoyed chatting with Pawel while enjoying some traditional Polish food. Pawel also did a great job ensuring that we were always riding safely, and that we were able to keep up without difficulty.

Our bike guide was wonderful! HIghly recommend. He even helped us with directions to train station and post office to pick up our tickets after he was done with the tour. Fantastic!! Be prepared however for lots of bike riding with lots of stops every 10-15 min for informational updates. Loved it but wish I was in better shape.

My husband and I had a private tour with Tom after a few people bailed due to some rainy weather. The sun ended up coming out and we had an amazing tour with Tom. He was informative and very personable. We got to see all the main sites and we got a good feel for the town. I highly recommend!
