We had a wonderful time on tour and would highly recommend!! The bus which takes 2 hours either way was lovely, clean and modern with charging outlets. The views driving up to Zakopane were beautiful. Sadly it was cloudy when we went but we still utilised the mountain metro that’s included in the price and the free cheese and vodka tasting that was included was a nice touch. The thermal spas were a must and much needed after the day prior travelling around the city. It’s a great chilled tour and would recommend to anyone going to Kraków. Hubert was out tour guide and it wouldn’t of been the same without him, hands down the best tour guide I’ve had. He was funny, informative and welcoming. There was no pressure to upswell or make us buy anything just a nice guy wanting to make sure we had a great time! He gave us lots of tips for the best places to eat and even provided snacks and water for the was back after the thermal baths. Thanks Hubert you really made our day!!!
Extremely recommended tour !!! Although the tour lasted all day, the tour was not heavy at all. First stop Chocolow, a small village with characteristic wooden houses, typical of the mountains. Nearby, a few minutes away, we made a short stop with tastings of typical cheeses and a 40 degree but pleasant shot. From there we then headed to Zakopane. Take the cable car and get to 1700 meters, have lunch overlooking the snow-capped mountains really wonderful !!! It was quite cold but we warmed up with a glass of hot beer / mulled wine. Then we had time to take a tour of the village which was really enjoyable! From there then we headed to the spa, a must-do stop! The spas of Zakopane include sauna, indoor and outdoor pools with possible soaking… a true paradise !!! We then returned around 8 pm. Gregory was our driver who always gave us exhaustive information on the different places visited and was always able to satisfy us.
Eri and Sebastian were our guides who were helpful and informative throughout the trip .. checking we were ok and making sure we knew where to go..at each stop. In the return journey they stopped nearer our apartment..which was great after a long day of activities. They checked we were ok with pickup day before and we were picked up promptly at agreed time. We had a lovely drive down to zakopane stopping first at a shepherds hut where we were served hot sheep’s cheese and vodka. We had a trip in the cable car to the top of the mountains where the views were amazing. We spent approximately 2.5 hours exploring zakopane before a 25 minute ride to hot thermal baths. A fabulous day out if you don’t mind the 2 hour drive there and back.. well worth it to see lots more of Poland.
We really enjoyed the food, singing and dancing. Everything was beautifully done.
Amazing. Perfect communication, friendly, informational, and very kind.
