What people are saying about Zakopane
Thoroughly enjoyed our day in the mountains especially the picturesque photo opportunities. We stopped at loads of different places to see points of interest so it never felt too much time was spent on the minibus. Gregory our guide was the best we had from all of our trips. Friendly and in-depth knowledge. He tried very hard to make it the day we wanted rather than just following the itinerary. The thermal baths were busy of course but the facilities of the place were good, again Gregory showed us what was what so we knew what to do. The baths were super relaxing and being outside in warm water with views of the mountains was special. We all said though, we should have visited the mountains and baths on our last day to relax after the many miles we had covered in Kracow! We know next time!
The excursion itself was a nice experience however I had to call the local partner twice to get to know the pick up time. They were very nice and helpful but other providers communicate straight away. Driver was very 'robotic'. Although he drove us to all sites mentioned in the programme he had poor knowledge and lack of customer skills compared to other drivers. It is not a complaint about the driver but a little bit of attention to clients would make this excursion an excellent one rather than a good one.
So much more than we could ever had imagined. Beautiful scenery lovely stop at the cheese farm which included Maliec our driver cooking us a polish cheese and cranberry snack with lemon vodka. Our driver was informative and extremely kind Zakopane is a lovely village. The whole day was magical. The thermal bath was amazing 2.5 hours totally relaxation if you have the time it’s just a given. Spectacular special day thank you. Absolutely the best value for money.
Philip our guide was great and was with us every step of the way to help, advise and translate as and when required. There was just Annie and myself on the tour so we had the luxury of a limousine to ourselves and of course the services of Philip on a one to one basis. We had a really nice day, we learnt a lot from Philip about life in Poland, he was so knowledgeable, he is a credit to the tour group. I highly recommend this trip. Thank you Philip
Zakopane is beautiful with a lot of interesting sites. It is a long day, I would budget 12 hours and that is without traffic problems. I think they could eliminate a couple of stops and get you back a couple hours earlier and no one would have a problem. I was with a group of 7 I think the capacity is 8 (seats in van) so it is a nice small group.
