I have booked the private tour for myself, my son and husband (my son being adult) and we enjoyed it a lot, having a driver makes the experience a lot more enjoyable rather then stressing where to go or park and figure out timing etc. Our driver Patrick was very intelligent and professional young man, highly recommended. As a procession I would just ask to pay attention to cost of the trip, as the price is not what you see as advertisement, specifically when reviewing in zloty but paying in dollars, totals are tripled.

Very nice boat-tour in the mountains.

Very nice day in the mountains! We had expected an ordinary rafting tour, but this was different. We floated slowly down the river in old traditional boats, together with polish families. Very nice! The surrounding nature was very beatyful. Our guide/driver Patrick was excellent! He told us so much interesting things, spoke English very well and was very flexibel. And a very skilful and safe driver.
