What people are saying about Tatra Mountains

Our guide, Bart, was absolutely amazing. Among the best. The only thing you pay for here at GYG is the booking fee and then you pay whatever you want directly to Bart after the guide. It's quite a long walk so make sure you have comfortable shoes and it may not be for small children or you who are physically challenged. But the guidance is fantastic. Informative, in excellent English and lots of facts and anecdotes. Highly recommended but as I said, it's a long way to go at 2.5 hours.

Anna our driver was brilliant. Communication before hand was spot on with good directions to pick up point. Lunch bag was pleasantly surprising with 2 large rolls, chocolate bar, water and fruit. Experience was well organised and our guide around Auschwitz was knowledgeable and gave plenty of time for looking and contemplation. Would recommend

Our guide Michael was the best! He was on time , very polite and explanatory. We really enjoyed this ride as we managed to see very easily the mail attractions in Old town and Jewish part of town. Michael is the best!

Absolutely incredible and so informative. Filip was an excellent guide and answered every question we had. I would have paid £80 just for schindlers factory tour! 100% recommend and absolutely worth the money.

Large collection of aircraft with a wonderful array of Mig and Sukhoi fighter jets. A great history of Polish built aircraft too.
