What a great day out. This is a trip everyone who visits Krakow area must do. The scenery is amazing, the water is calm but still exciting enough sailing over rocks. Safe for kids and the raft guides are super entertaining. But they only speak Polish. So if you want to understand all the awesome jokes then bring a Polish speaking translator, you will pee yourself laughing. The booking company was great and the driver Milosc really cared about us all and made sure we had the best possible experience. He was very knowledgeable and tried to make the day unforgettable. The vehicle was super luxurious and the long drives were very relaxing and comfortable. If you are in the krakow area, then you must do this tour.

We were very enthusiastic about the tour with Rafał, he picked us up at the hotel on time and the journey began. He showed us a lot and explained a lot. What you should know, however, is that it is best to take a seat cushion with you for the trip on the Danube, the trip takes a little longer than 2 hours and the seat is uncomfortably hard. But it was very worth it.

Loved the tour.

Thank you for a wonderful tour! Rafting on the Danube is a fantastic sight! Safe rafting made it possible to see the mountains in all its beauty, caused a complete delight. Two hours passed quickly! And then we went to Zakopane and conquered Mount Gubalupka on the funicular, from where amazing landscapes open! Our driver and guide Cris drove the car very carefully along a difficult track, making our trip comfortable and safe! Thanks for the 12 hours of magical travel!
