I loved Zakopane! so stunning and great shopping too! You have to try the local cheese with cranberry too!
Good tour - great to see Zakapone.
Our guide ,Jack, was superb on this tour. Very knowledgeable on the geography, geology, and fauna of the areas en route to Zakopane. Zakopane is a small town at the foot of the Tatras Mountains is is well known for its large market place with a vast array of hand made crafts and local foods. To reach the summit of one mountain range we took the railway to the top with incredible views of the valley and mountains. Decided to walk back to the village- worthwhile, with even more stunning views on route.Visited the local museum which was fascinating ,as it showed the harsh environment endured by the early occupants. A long journey but worthwhile.
The bus ride to Zakopane was very scenic and the tour guide gave a great commentary on interesting aspects of the sites. Unfortunately cloud cover was low on the day, so we weren't able to see the peaks of the mountains diving us from Slovakia, but they lifted late in the day to give us a glimpse of its splendour. Some heavy showers further complicated the day, but the vibrancy of the Zakopane village shone through and all those enjoying its pleasures didn't allow a bit of rain to stop them! Highly enjoyable and highly recommended.
Beyond words. So beautiful. Informative, gorgeous scenery.
Well organised. Good Tour Operator ,comfortable coach and excellent English speaking guide. Would highly recomend this tour.
Booking was straightforward, we also received reminders about printing off our tour vouchers before we left the UK. We were a little confused about the collection arrangements on the day of the tour which involved us being taken to a main collection point by a coach with no indication of where we were going, if this possibility had been included the initial literature it would have saved us some concerns. However, once we were on the minibus everything went very smoothly. The guide was excellent, relaxed, friendly and very knowledgable. We were given plenty of free time and yet our guide was always on hand to offer advice and help if needed, especially during our time in the market in Zakopane.
Would definitely recomend this trip to anyone who is interested in the mountain scenery (even though this was the one day on our holiday when it decided to rain and the cloud covered the peaks) and the history of the area. Excellent value for money
The place was beautiful, but our guide, Jack, was fantastic
We had a great day out in Zakopane. The tour guide was very helpful and very knowledgeable. Thank you.
Tour was spoilt by the weather but it was well organized and Andrew, the guide, did everything to make it as enjoyable as he could. Area is lovely although Zakapone is very touristy and I didn't really like it for this reason. Worth doing for the scenery there and back even if the Tatras are hidden from view!!
Really well organised- the tour guide was absolutely amazing, very informative and a warm personality. The Zakopane mountains are beautiful, as is the surrounding area and I am soooooooo happy that I booked this trip :)
We had the guide Marek all to ourselves and he was a great source of info on Tatras and Poland in general.
A great day out. Our guide was amazing and this town is the true Poland. No commercialised boring plastic city here, authentic Poland!
You will love it!
This was a first class trip,the tour guide was so informative and zakopane is a must for anyone visiting Poland.
What a beautiful place to visit. It took about 2 hours to reach Zakopane but well worth the trip. We went up the mountain on the funicular railway to get the best views across the Tatras We visited an old wooden church and the graveyard which was very enjoyable. We then had 4 hours of free time to explore the town of Zakopane which had plenty to offer. Our guide was very good and spoke excellent English. Another 5 star trip
