Overview

Zip around Krakow in an electric car on this sightseeing tour. Led by a private driver, soak up the city's rich history as audio commentary offers background on the passing attractions. Travel through the Jewish district of Kazimierz, see the Barbican and Cloth Hall in the Old Town, and experience a poignant piece of World War II history in the former Jewish Ghetto of Podgórze. Your private tour concludes back at your original departure point.
  • Private Krakow tour by Melex electric car with audio commentary
  • See the sights in a chauffeured Melex that can access areas closed to normal traffic
  • Pass top Krakow attractions around the Old Town including Rynek Główny, the Cloth Hall, and Barbican
  • Visit the former Jewish district of Kazimierz, and Podgórze, the Jewish Ghetto during WWII
  • See emotive Ghetto Heroes Square and Oskar Schindler’s factory
  • Experience a personalized atmosphere and see the best of Krakow on this private tour
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.

Your tour concludes with drop-off back at your hotel.
Itinerary
Pass By:  
Krakow's Rynek Glowny Central Square
This is the place of the most “mosts”: the most important public space in Kraków, the most expansive Market Square of medieval Europe, it gathers everything most characteristic of the city and has its most distinctive hallmarks, and last but not least: the most beautiful, the most important, the most charming, the most…
Pass By:  
Sukiennice (Cloth Hall)
One of the symbols of city, a pearl of renaissance architecture, Krakow’s oldest “commercial centre”: Sukiennice or the Cloth Hall is one of the most important elements of the architectural heritage of Kraków.
Pass By:  
Museum of Krakow Town Hall Tower
70 metres (230 ft), 110 stone steps, the executioner’s dungeons, and 700 years on the Main Market Square: this is the Town Hall Tower, the only remnant of the original seat of the city authorities.
Pass By:  
St Mary's Basilica
A history spanning over eight centuries, a high altar by Veit Stoss (Wit Stwosz), a bugle call, the star strewn murals by Jan Matejko covering the vaulting: all this in a single church! Moreover: in the very centre of Kraków!
Pass By:  
Slowacki Theatre
One of the most famous and most recognised Polish stages, it has operated continuously since 1893. The building of the Juliusz Słowacki Theatre is counted among the most precious examples of theatre architecture in Europe.
Pass By:  
Muzeum Krakowa - Barbakan
The pearl of Krakow’s fortifications, the Barbican is one of the most exquisite examples of medieval military architecture in Europe. Never captured during a siege, it passed into legend when its defenders repulsed the attacking enemy forces with – believe it or not –a single shot!
Pass By:  
Kazmierz The Former Jewish District
Once independent, the city situated south of Wawel was the hub of Jewish life in Kraków for centuries, and today it is one of the greatest tourist attractions of the city.
Pass By:  
Reformed Tempel Synagogue (Synagoga Tempel)
The Tempel Synagogue is worth a visit for at least two reasons. Firstly, the stained glass windows, which are among the best preserved of their kind in Poland. The other is its “non-orthodox character”.
Pass By:  
Muzeum Krakowa - Stara Synagoga
Standing on Szeroka Street Street, known not only as the stage of the final concert of the Jewish Culture Festival but also as the centuries-old centre of Jewish life in Kazimierz, is one of the oldest synagogues in Poland preserved in such a good condition.
Pass By:  
Szeroka Street
Szeroka Street is the heart of Jewish Kazimierz. Let a testimony to its significance be the fact that four synagogues used to stand on the street, which was unheard of anywhere else in Europe.
Pass By:  
Remuh Synagogue (Synagoga Remuh)
The smallest of the seven synagogues of Krakow, it has long contrasted with the others due to its decidedly more modest decor. After the renovation completed in April 2016, it became the main site of prayer for the members of the Jewish community in Krakow.
Pass By:  
The Ghetto Heroes Square
Situated in the Podgórze district, which in 1941 was turned into the Krakow Ghetto, the former Plac Zgody [Concord Square] was designated 'Umschlagplatz' under the Nazi occupation, the place where the Jews had to congregate to be deported.
Pass By:  
Muzeum Krakowa - Apteka pod Orlem
Tadeusz Pankiewicz could not possibly have foreseen while taking over his father’s pharmacy that he would make history together with the enterprise.
Pass By:  
Muzeum Krakowa, oddzial Fabryka Emalia Oskara Schindlera
Where the tumultuous history of a world war meets everyday life, and private lives – a tragedy that affected the whole world.

The electric car city tour is a great way to get an overview of the city. You can then decide what you want to see in more detail. The guide/driver was very nice, knowledgeable and spoke very good English. I recommend it ic you have just one day in the city or as an introduction

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.

Did not turn up on time at the hotel and had to ring to sort it out. The guide tried hard but it is difficult to hear in the traffic.

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.
