I can only recommend this tour if you want to see, for example, the Centennial Hall in addition to the city center and don't have enough time to visit everything individually. The driver was very friendly and also spoke German, the information came over loudspeakers, but they were difficult to understand in the rear area of the vehicle with background traffic noise. There are also 3 sightseeing stops, at the Cathedral, the Centennial Hall and the Baroque Jesuit Church.

The e-car ride was an unforgettable trip around the most important monuments of Wrocław. The Lord, despite his young age, found in his stories a kind of pill of very interesting information, it was pleasant to listen to. With a clear conscience, I can recommend such an attraction to all those who want to visit the city of dwarfs and not get bored with it.

Our very first Tram Tour proved to be a fascinating and unique experience and very informative of many interesting places to visit in Wroclaw. The guide was excellent and the tram driver drove the old tram through many streets changing the tram rail points on numerous occasions by having to get off the tram with a lever!

The boat trip was pleasant and showed us a new point of view of this wonderful city. The guide is very prepared, available, speaks perfect Italian and was also attentive to the needs of my 5 year old son.

Guide was really nice. Had a lot of knowledge and a lot of patience. Really recommended.
