Lovely trip and a great antedote to the sadness of Auschwitz. Thanks
Very informative and friendly tour guide. Unfortunately did not get to see the mountains due to the weather however it was a good tour
Excellent tour. Knowledgeable tour guide.
Our tour guide was wonderful! He was very knowledgable and made every effort to make the experience the best possible. Seeing the mountains is better with a clear sky, which we did not have on our day, unfortunately.
Zakopane is a lot more crowded than I had expected, so seeing the mountains wasn't a quiet experience of nature, as I had expected. However, the day tour allowed for everything to be done with ease and it was certainly the way to go for me.
Wonderful day away from Cracow and Auschwitz
Even though the weather was hazy and rainy we really enjoyed our tour of the Tatra Mountains and Zakopane. Our guide was informative and witty. The bus was roomy and comfortable. We had plenty of time to walk around Zakopane and view the mountains. We really want to come back to visit and enjoy the beautiful scenery.
Not to be missed
Great day out
If they come to your hotel to pick you up, make sure you're waiting next to the desk. We were in the lobby. No one ever called out our name or the trip name. When I called the phone number, I was told I should have been standing next to the desk. We had to pay for a cab to rush is to the central pick up area. No where in any of the literature did it say we had to be standing next to the desk. This was not a good start to our trip to Zacopane.
Bit of confusion at pick up. Driver good and very knowledgable. Very very quick tour of museum maybe give people 10-15mins to explore or a ticket for them to come back in the free time. Zakopane - worth going up the Funnicular for the view, the town itself packed with tourist market stalls all selling the same thing. Biggest annoyance why drive past the ski jump to show us the ski jump when one side of the bus can't even see it and the other side blinked and practically missed it.
Really dissapointing, stop at wooden village was a brief walk down the main road. Zakopane is just full of tacky tourist shops, hundreds of them in fact. If you have never been to see mountains it would be ok. Museum visit way too long and boring. Felt like we wasted our money and a day in Krakow.
His tour was brilliant. Zakapone is a beautiful unique place I would recommend it .
Scenery outstanding Tetra mountains
This is an excellent tour and our guide was entertaining and knowledgeable, would highly recommend the trip. The small bus was roomy, and there was time to explore by ourselves as well as the formal tour.
Would also recommend Poland as a place to go, enjoyed every day of our time in Warsaw, Krakow and Wroclaw.

Very informative and enjoyable tour.
Unique and Beautiful place well worth a visit .Guide was excellent very informative .good value foe money
Loved this tour, lots of free time in an amazing town. Food is out of this world, mountains are beautiful and journey itself very educating.
Amazing. Had a fantastic day. Great tour guide. Didn't spend as long as expected at the Bania Thermal Pools because they were so busy.
Everything was well organized and the only minus was too small bus.
En route to Zakopane, you see a village with wooden houses. In Zakopane, you can walk around the commercial touristy town to shop and snack on smoked cheese or potato pancakes. After visiting an anthropology museum, you walk as a group to the funicular. Up on top, you can hardly see the view of the Tatras Mountains because of all the souvenir kiosks filled with junk not made in Poland.
For me, the best part of this tour was a visit to a small cemetery in Zakopane. Many of the gravesites are very interesting.
Would like to have had more time at the Mountain. Beautiful scenic views and the weather was wonderful.
The Young Lady that was our Guide was very nice and full of information.
The minibus for the 4 hour round trip to Zakopane was cramped, dark and claustrophobic. For long trips, this mini bus is inappropriate - further, the guide needs to work harder - giving more general information at least on the out bound trip. Only on reaching Zakopane, were we told the funicular was out of service and we would see a second church instead. in fact Zacopane is a ski resort so if no snow/out of season, we really didn't think it worth the 4 hour travel. the market is very similar to that in Kracow. it was a disappointing day in an otherwise excellent 4 days in Kracow.
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
