What You Can Expect

Private Tour: Krakow City Sightseeing by Electric Car

See the sights of Krakow by private Melex

Choose a preferred departure time and meet your private driver at your central Krakow hotel. Hop aboard your Melex, a small, electric car similar to a golf cart. Your eco-friendly ride is ideal for touring the city, as it can access areas of the Old Town closed to normal traffic. The vehicle also comes with plastic, transparent covers to keep you warm during rainy days.

Travel first to the Old Town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and admire Europe’s largest medieval square, the Rynek Główny. Gaze at the impressive Cloth Hall and St Mary’s Church, where the famous trumpet calls out on the hour. Continue to the Barbican, a fortified outpost once connected to the city walls during medieval times. As you travel from each major landmark, gain extra insight into the city’s rich culture, history and architecture through the audio commentary on board.

Head to the former Jewish neighborhood of Kazimierz next, passing the historic synagogues and bustling restaurants and shops. Continue to Podgórze to see Oskar Schindler’s Factory, where many Jewish employees were saved from deportation during World War II, among other historic sites.

After an hour and a half of sightseeing, your tour will conclude with drop-off back at your hotel.

Booked in advance and we got picked up from our hotel.We did this on the first day of our visit to get a quick overview of the city.The driver was really friendly and gave us a good insight into the city in between breaks in the pre recorded audio tape.

We got to see the main market square in old town, Schindler's factory and the Jewish Ghetto and quarter.

A must do on your first day as the electric cars get access to places other tours cannot easily access.

Well done by guide and driver Matthew giving us all the highlights of Krakow on our first full day ! If not for a unexpected flat tire on the Melex vehicle I would have it rated as a 5 star experience and good value.

It was great. The pre-recorded language guide was really well used by the guide who would point to a building and name it , then play the story of it in English. The little car is great fun too. It's almost like a walking tour with advantages.

3 star rating: Worth doing September 2017

The concept with travel by golf cart through the wonderful town of Krakow with excellent information provided by the audio would have deserved a 5 if not for our driver not guide who pulled the rating down. Perhaps it was the rain but from the beginning of our tour on 23 September, our driver seemed in a hurry. He did motion to what was being described but did not remain at the site while the audio was describing it. We tried to ask that he stay so we could listen and see but language barriers prevented that. As we saw all similar tours stopping and letting people take pictures about half way through the tour, we were able to communicate stop, photo and then he stopped, opened the plastic door so we could get out and take a picture. He never volunteered to stop for us to take a photo, but was very helpful when we asked. Perhaps with more experience, he will be as good as some of the other driver/guides reviewed. Also, my recommendation would be to provide a list or map of the stops to the clients. We had hoped to have a feel for the layout of the city at the end of the tour but because of the many turns and circling back by the same sites, we did not have that nor were we sure what all we had seen. While we were disappointed with our driver, still enjoyed our experience. We chose not to name him in this public post.

Only way to get around narrow streets in city centre without walking - hence why chose over usual sightseeing bus tour. With teenager in tow and limited time was able to tick off sights with just enough commentary driver was personable and we spoke a lot about respective countries. Able to give my own time for collection and requested drop off at Schindlers factory with our suitcases as going straight to airport from there. So despite being quite expensive for just 2, provided a good taxi service also.
