What people are saying about Chochołów

Wonderful trip that surpassed all expectations from start to finish... Denis was a brilliant guide and very knowledgeable. The tour ran very smoothly and my only minor criticism is that the communication from the organisers could be slightly more prompt (I had to chase them to confirm final details for the trip the evening prior). We thoroughly recommend all 3 activities. Though I would say as we visited Zakopane towards the very end of the season (11th March) there wasn't quite as much to do/see as you would have during peak times.

We had a wonderful day with our guide. He gave us plenty of time to see the exhibits and he was very polite and talkative. We had some traffic trouble, but he didn't let that affect the tour - we still saw everything and he working about an hour later than scheduled. Overall an amazing experience and very well-organized!

This was the highlight of our trip to Poland. It was an expensive trip but so worth it. Our tour guide Gregory brought us to so many amazing places on this day. He was such a good tour guide that we used him for the remainder of the days in Kraokow.

A nice get away from Krakow. The driver was extremely good, knowledgeable, giving us the right information and giving us options what to do. I recommend this tour if you want to get away from the city and meet the countryside!!!

Patrick is a great, knowledgeable and considerate guide. Many shops etc were closed due to the Corona measures but that’s not up to the tour organizers of course (maybe some research before would have helped though).
