We loved the beauty of the scenery on this trip,sadly the weather was poor but we still enjoyed.
Fantastic trip ..Guide really interesting even in the cemetery in Zakopane ! Honest never seen such fascinating tomb stones before, steeped in history. Our guide Andrew gave us the option of free time or explaining more ...good measure of discussion without being overbearing. HIGHLY RECCOMEND TRIP :)
Beautiful scenery, comfortable ride, excellent guide. A very enjoyable day.
Although this tour takes you to breath-taking scenery on the Tatras mountains and the picturesque village of Zakopane, I had to give this tour 5 stars because of the tour leader 'Jack'. Definitely, in all my travels he was one the best tour guides I have ever met. Soft spoken, friendly, full of knowledge and very informative. A man who really love his job!!!
Fantastic day out in the mountains. Excellent guide (Jack) very passionate about the Highlander people and their traditions. Nice comfortable journey from Krakow and informative all the way. Went up the funicular railway to top of mountain with spectacular views.
Viator has never fail us. We had a pleasant and very enjoyable experience travelling with our tour guide Mr. Jacek Nowotny. He is very friendly and knowledgeable. We were told that we are very brave to choose this trip during winter as the temperature could dip drown to -40 deg C. As there were only three of us, we travelled in his family car and were given a first class service.

I could not have been happier with my experience to Zakopane. Jacek, my guide, was amazing- so knowledgeable about the area, and about Poland and its history. A vey pleasant drive from Krakow, great weather, amazing food. The market was great, so much to choose from, and good prices. This was a day I will never forget.
I loved Zakopane! so stunning and great shopping too! You have to try the local cheese with cranberry too!
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.
We had a great day out in Zakopane. The tour guide was very helpful and very knowledgeable. Thank you.
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
