My name is Mike and I'm the founder of Cruising Krakow.
Born in Krakow, I left Poland at an early age with the rest of the communist era-exodus and moved to Vancouver, Canada. During my childhood I was always surrounded by Polish language and culture, but after years in the rat race I had enough; I finished my degree in philosophy at the University of British Columbia, sold my car and moved to the opposite end of the cultural spectrum: Spain.
I worked for Fat Tire Bike Tours in Barcelona, but after 3 years of beaches, sunshine and sangria I returned to the city of my birth, bringing with me the vast experiences of life in these wonderful places.
Growing up in the New World, I have come to expect a high level of customer service that is absent in some parts of Europe. That's why at Cruising Krakow - which has been running since 2006 - we provide an exceptional tourist experience for all of our customers.
Looking forward to riding with you soon!

My name is Chris.
Born in Lublin in the east of Poland at the age of 19 I moved to Krakow to study Mechanical Engineering in the University of Science and Technology.
I started working for Cruising Krakow in 2013 as a bike mechanic, and after 3 years of maintaining our bikes I became a partner taking advantage of my engineering knowledge and experience to provide our guests with the highest quality of equipment, whether its a Segway or bicycle.

Caroline the Administrator
As a student of Management in Tourism Caroline came to Cruising Krakow in order to gain new experiences in the tourism industry after a few years of sitting behind a hotel reception desk. She loves to travel, explore new places, and cultures. In Caroline's spare time she enjoys almost every kind of sport, meeting new people and planning her next city break.
Tomasz the magician
Tom came to us with a background in entertainment. He worked with both adults and children as a magician and now shows his tricks off to our guests since 2015. Tom likes to focus on the history of Krakow and brings the historical buildings of Krakow to life by describing what they saw since their construction. In the evenings you can see him behind the bar at Cafe Szafe and in his spare time you reunites himself with nature on long strolls in the woods.
Veronica the Thespian
Veronica came to Krakow to study psychology from the Silesian city of Gliwice. Although studying psychology she promises not to psycho-analise tourists while showing them the city. Her other interests include theatre, art history, and painting.
Anthony the Dandy
Besides possessing a wardrobe that even Liberace would be jealous, Anthony enjoys hiking in the mountains, art and art history and is also a scout leader.
Simon the Scholar
Simon was born in Krakow, has been cruising with Cruising Krakow since 2018. His passion to the city started in primary school and since then he continues to discover it. Simon is especially fascinated in Krakow's urban development, architecture and social history. Besides guiding tours, he is studying two degrees in International Migrations and Law. In Simon's spare time he likes to spend money on alternative coffee, craft beers and traveling. See you on 2 wheels!
I am Douwe. In 2015 I moved to Krakow. Coming from a small village next to Leeuwarden, I have been enjoying this beautiful city for years. After working in the brevity of offices for a number of years, I now cycle and whistle through the city every day. Krakow is a beautiful city and there is a lot to tell and see about it. I like to share all my knowledge and personal experiences about the history of Krakow, the Polish culture (and the differences with the Netherlands), but of course also all the restaurants and other interesting places that you do not immediately notice as a tourist.
