Can you get door-to-door transport in Wroclaw?
Yes, it is possible to get all-inclusive door-to-door transport in Wrocław! If you are looking for reliable transport from airport, you are lucky to have found us. And if you are unsure what “door-to-door” means, here is a quick explanation. Door-to-door service is a service where we take care of our customer from the start to the end of their travel, picking them at an agreed pick-up point and then driving you to any point in Wrocław you want. We do not charge for distance traveled, time spent or fuel burned. The price is always fixed, which makes it a perfect choice for a lengthy drive, such as when your hotel is in either a remote area of Wrocław, or somewhere near the center. Why? Because Wroclaw has very busy traffic, and sometimes, you can spend a lot of time in a jam. This can make taxis and other transports charging you for time unfairly expensive. We believe that honesty and upfront costs are the only way to conduct the business fairly, so you will not be surprised by any hidden costs when deciding to take our door-to-door services. The offer extends beyond airport transfers. Our door-to-door tours function in a similar way. The biggest difference is that you can decide where you want us to drop you after the tour is done. It does not have to be your hotel. If you want to grab something to eat or continue sightseeing, we can take you anywhere within Wrocław.

Yes! There are many people in Poland who speak English, and we made sure that our guides and drivers can speak it too.

What people are saying about us:
FAQHere you can find answers for frequently asked questions.
There are so many great options it is hard to give a single recommendation. You might as well decide to start where Wrocław itself started. Ostrów Tumski island is the oldest part of the city. This is where the first people of Wroclaw founded their village at least in the Xth century, if not earlier. Atmospheric and inspiring, the island remains one of the favorite scenic points of both the locals and tourists. You also should absolutely make sure to not miss the Market Square! One of the biggest of its time, it was and still is bustling with life. The colorful tenement houses and unique Town Hall attract the eye and make for fantastic photo opportunities. If you are a fan of nature, you might want to take a break from architecture and visit the oceanarium and Zoo. Wrocław’s zoo is the oldest in the country!
If you want to get somewhere right here right now, it is hard to beat taxis. However, exactly because of that, they will drain your cash pretty fast if you try to use them too much. Taxis in Wrocław are very expensive. A more economical alternative is using public transport, which might look scary at first, but has been made much easier recently. Why? Because Jakdojade exists! Use the app to plan your routes, remember to have your tickets to avoid being fined, and jump right into the public transport. However, there is one alternative we would recommend above that. Wrocław has the amazing bike-friendly infrastructure and is eager to let you use it. Wrocławski Rower Miejski - Wroclaw City Bike - allows you to easily and conveniently rent bikes for even short trips. See one, grab one, and bike away! Just make sure to leave them at one of the bike stations when you are done.
In most cases, no. However, when coming to see the Panorama of the Battle of Racławice, the ticket you get is actually a bundle. It allows you to see the National Museum and the Ethnographic Museum. However, currently, Panorama of the Battle of Racławice is temporarily unavailable and will remain so until the end of March 2021. Additionally, entry to the National Museum is free every Saturday.
