This was a great tour, but don't think it's just an easy ride. You will ride a good distance to see a lot of the sites and it will take the entire 4 hours. However, it's worth the time. Also, remember sometimes things happen unexpectedly. My bike got a flat tire which the guide quickly fixed. Flat tires happen. However, in this case, I got a second flat tire and the guide had to have another inner tube brought out by a team member while we took our meal break. The other team member found glass inside the tire which was VERY unexpected. I've never seen it happen and I do a lot of biking. It's life, things happen, it's how they are handled which is important and this was handled very well.

Wonderful way to experience beautiful old Krakow and a great way to get your bearings and learn some of the history. Our guide was brilliant, friendly and knowledgeable. Much of the route was on cycle paths or through parks but such roads that we were taken along were very quiet of traffic on a sunny Saturday morning. So even as novice electric bike users we felt completely safe. Would thoroughly recommend this tour to anyone visiting this city and definitely choose these guys as they're great.

Well organised picked up bikes from just off main square and Sev led the way through the old town. He has great knowledge of history of the city - we would never have experienced as much on foot! Well worth it - all on flat ground except for 20m! We cycled to castle, Jewish quarter, Schindler’s factory although we did not go in - and many more! Over 3 hours and we are all over 60!! Learnt a lot about Krakow - very pleasant activity and thoroughly recommend it!

Had a thoroughly enjoyable day exploring kraków. Michael was very informative and provided a fantastic day touring the city. His knowledge was second to none x

Very informative, interesting experience, lots of fun!
