We were picked up directly from the hotel. With the electric car we went to the most beautiful sights (very pleasant). Big compliments to our guide (young woman), she accompanied us in English and the historical context was explained in German via audio. There was often the opportunity to get out and take photos. This type of sightseeing is highly recommended, it was neither strenuous nor boring and is worth the money. Thank you The booking was easy and very convenient for last-minute travelers.

We chose a personal e-car tour as a way to spend a rainy day in Wroclaw. It is in awesome way to get to know the city and learn its history. Kubert (our guide) along with some audiotapes helped us learn so much.

Our tour guide Paweł was well-versed in local history and offered colorful commentary which made the tour worthwhile. Highly recommended.

It was a great tour in a small group. We went early in the day and avoided the big rush. That made the tour incredible.

Nice young man talking and drining around. Good time
