    Very enjoyable day out and great way to see more of the Tatra Mountains. Journey was not difficult or long from Krakow and driver/guide was very accommodating and helpful as and when we needed. Plenty of time to enjoy the treetop walk although if we had walked up instead of taking the cable car this might have been tight. Recommend doing the slide down but it is an additional 2 euro-worth remembering you don't pay in zlotys as in Slovakia! Cable car extra as well which is 11 euro each, view at the top is beautiful. Tour in Zakopane is not really a tour more a chance to explore the main street which has plenty of shops, access to the cable car up to the top which is worth doing for the views and plenty of good shops to buy gifts. Arrived back in Krakow not too tired as well so a good use of a day exploring further afield

  • Tatra Mountains and Zakopane Full-Day Trip from Krakow

    We arrived in Poland hours before it was announced that the country shut down due to Coronavirus pandemic. All cultural institutions had already been confirmed to close and we were worried what we would be able to still do whilst in the country. I found this tour and it absolutely saved our weekend. The tour company were informative and helpful and the guide went out of his way to make us feel comfortable and to show us as much of the Tetra Mountain park as he possibly could, particularly in the face of closures and quarantines. The efforts he went through to make us comfortable and find us somewhere that would still serve us lunch was commendable and I would absolutely recommend this operator to anybody else travelling to the region.

We had a wonderful day with our guide. He gave us plenty of time to see the exhibits and he was very polite and talkative. We had some traffic trouble, but he didn't let that affect the tour - we still saw everything and he working about an hour later than scheduled. Overall an amazing experience and very well-organized!

This was the highlight of our trip to Poland. It was an expensive trip but so worth it. Our tour guide Gregory brought us to so many amazing places on this day. He was such a good tour guide that we used him for the remainder of the days in Kraokow.

Very popular so very busy but once at the lake it is fantastic. We went up to black lake and from there the view is great. Our guide had a lot to tell and that was a nice addition

Well organized trip. First stop was rafting with a nice scenery. Second we had the option to go to the tree top walk and then we went to Zakopane with a very nice view.
