This trip was a lot of fun and our guide was great! He told us to call him Jack but I think his real name was something like Jacques. It was a nice break to get out of the city and though the weather that day wasn't the best, we still had a good time. There were things to do inside too like the museum we went into and it was a nice, relaxed pace. Our guide was really knowledgable and made suggestions of different foods that were special to the area to try. He also was flexible in the schedule to try and fit things with the weather as it was off and on raining. He even agreed to come down on the ski lift with 3 of us crazy girls despite it starting to rain though it stopped shortly before we headed down so it worked out alright but he didn't know it would so bless his heart all the same! o I'd recommend this to anyone!
A well organized tour with a very affable and informative tour guide.
We had poor weather but the guide was good and the service excellent
We had a great tour, the tour guide was excellent, friendly, would do anything for us, was genuinely upset it was a cloudy day for us, but the weather really didn't matter as it was fantastic either way. We went up the funicular walked across the mountain tops and came down the ski lift, just in time for the skies to clear and give us spectacular views! Highly recommended.
It was agreat day out and myself and nephew enjoyed it very much
Our guide was very good but due to the rain and fog we were not able to fully appreciate the whole view of the mountains and surrounding countryside.
I was expected a little bit more of walking un the mountain.
The guide talked too much and zakopane did not really have much to offer. Interesting to see the mountain area
Krakow tours has amazing staff for these tours! Thank you very much Jacek for the trip, the info provided and your assistance with the locals at Zakopane. It is really a place to visit! Do go and ask for Jacek if possible to be your guide, he is the best! Highly recommended!
The drive in weekend traffic was very long. Perhaos a weekly trip would be better. The poor guide had a stomach upset but he still soldiered on and it was a fabulous day. The guides are amazing - so passionate and knowledgeable.
Highly recommended day trip in Zakopane from where you can have great views of the Tatra Mountainsyou don't actually go to Tatras Mountains. If you have the opportunity it definitely worth staying there for 2-3 nights! Very beautiful place with outstanding views and lots of thinks to do.
This was a very rewarding tour delivered in spite of difficulties arising from traffic jams and congestion at Zakopane arising from the public holiday. All problems were overcome by the sheer infectious enthusiasm of the guide for what appears to be a location that holds a special place in the hearts of the Polish people.
Long day but very interesting and enjoyable. Our driver/guide was very good.
Fantastic! Lovely day trip. We were a small group, had a Nice driver, only Too much People in BaniaThermal Pools.
The places visited were fantastic, however the tour guide could have been more informative, especially when considering the cost of the tour. We take a tour to avoid reading all the information about a place...in this case, we could have taken more information if we researched about it ourselves. Otherwise it was a pleasant tour.
A very enjoyable day with an excellent English speaking guide. The scenery was great and as your tour guidance had said.. it was exactly what it said on the tine. We were really impressed with Krakow and its surroundings and we will be going there again!
Great day tour worth your money and worth seeing
What a great day! Prompt pick up service quality transport and a well informed, friendly guide who explained so much to us in an interesting way.
This was an excellent tour. However, when we got to Zakopane, the cable car was not in operation as they were refurbishing it. I felt that this was something the tour company should have been aware of. We ended up taking a chair lift up to the mountain. All in all it was a good experience.
Well worth the price, interesting visits to wooden village and ski resort, great views when the clouds clear, interesting just seeing the countryside . Great guide knew about everything and sense of humour as well.
Really a 'must do' if visiting krakow.
On the way we stopped off at Chocholow where there are wonderful wooden houses. It was interesting to see the different housing throughout the trip from the Alpine type houses to the Zakopane-style ones around the town. Beautiful green countryside, primarily forested.
Zakopane was plentifully supplied with tourist stalls selling everything from clothing to food, especially Highland cheese.
The funicular up to Mount Gubalowska was efficient, and it was surprising to see a sandy area at the top with people sunbathing on deckchairs. The walk along the top to the cable car was lined with more tourist stalls and cafes and, while the views were good across to the Tatras Mountains, there did not seem to be much to do and it lacked focus.
We had expected that have spent time nearer to or in the Tatras themselves and had a more exploratory experience.
We thoroughly enjoyed our day, sadly the weather was less than perfect to experience the full impressive beauty of this mountain range BUT despite that we heartily enjoyed Andreas's joy and wealth of knowledge in the history of the region. His excellent English and bright disposition was a real joy. Would recommend this trip.
Perfect time of year when i went really interesting tour
Fabulous guide Jack English version of his name, so passionate about his job, fantastic day out, highly recommended.
