The joys of this tour lie not only in what you will discover but also in the simple pleasures of biking through the leafy Planty gardens, following the path of the city moat, along the lazy Vistula river and through the colorful streets of Kazimierz. Despite being extensive, the tour is not too strenuous and is suitable for all levels of fitness. There are plenty of stops for historical explanations and photo opportunities. The duration of the bike tour is 4 to 4.5 hours, including a 45min break for lunch at a traditional Polish restaurant where you can order anything from perogies to our favorite Żurek ( sour wheat soup ).
Our City Bike Tour begins everyday under the Adam Mickiewicz statue in the main market square. No need for bikes quite yet. We meet first, introduce ourselves and the city before heading off together to equip each of our guests with his or her very own beach cruiser bike.

The country tour takes you along the Vistula river to Tyniec, a small town 12km west of Krakow, famous for its 11th century Benedictine abbey. Founded in 1044, the abbey played a crucial military role in Poland's Christian restoration and the nation's rebuilding. The tour begins along the Vistula river on a smooth bike path and leads you through southern Poland's picturesque countryside. You will pass through age-old woods, see crumbling forts and cycle past some of the lakes that surround Krakow. Upon arrival at Tyniec, you'll have a chance to explore the ancient grounds, take photographs of breathtaking scenery and visit the gift shop, which is full of products prepared by the monks. The essence of the tour is a relaxed, scenic country cycle rather than the stop-start nature of the city tour. You'll cover a total of 24km on a ride lasting nearly four hours. The tour departs in the afternoon and returns in the evening. A backpack is recommended as it will allow you to transport food, water or gifts back from Tyniec. Keen photographers take note: the country tour will stop at a point overlooking Krakow and is timed to coincide with the sunset.

Nestled north east of Krakow's old town is the worker's paradise built for the employees of Lenin's steel mill plant. Ride with us back in time to a not so distant past and visit a city that to this day is the ideal example of urban socialist architecture and design. Along the way we will get to see Krakow's airbase that was destroyed during the second world war, the church of Our Lord's ark that was a symbol of communist revolt, and of course the steel mill plant that once held Vladimir Lenin's name.
