I booked this trip to Zakepone with my dad and it was the highlight of our holiday in Poland! Our driver and guide was Thomas and he was extremely friendly, patient and knowledgeable about the area. We loved the cheese tasting where Thomas cooked the highlander cheese for us and gave us some Polish vodka too. We had 2.5 hours in Zakapone which was plenty of time to explore and take photos of the picturesque town! We finished the day with the funicular up to see the town from the mountains. It was extremely great value and we would fully recommend this trip - it has all 5 star reviews for a reason! Thank you Thomas!

Absolutely Fantastic Trip! A must if visiting Poland. Transfer was very smooth and picked us up and dropped us off right outside our hotel. Firstly driving to a small hut in the mountains where we had smoked cheese and vodka (tastes amazing!!!) then after a short drive - we were given 3 hours of free time. The ride on the funicular took us to the most scenic views of Zakopane (breathtaking). Then we wandered around town and ate lots of food and checked out local shops. 100% recommend. Book this trip.

Easy to book - Excellent value for money - Fantastic guide. Patryk was attentive, informative, and an all-around great guide. The description of the experience was spot on and even exceeded expectation. We were messaged the previous day with pick up place, time and type of car - number plate. It's definitely worth booking!

Adam was great and gave super service and we highly recommend him to anyone. Thank you Adam.

Very lovely driver, beautiful trip and stunning views. Recommend doing this!
