Zakopane was amazing! We were picked up on time and the journey there was fairly smooth with little traffic. We had a private car and guide for the entire trip which was great. Jakub was very friendly and gave us plenty of time to explore. The first stop at the sculpture shop was adorable, and the cheese shop afterwards was amazing. We purchased souvenirs and tried 4 different cheeses - the whole experience even before we got to Zakopane was gorgeous. Once we got to the village, Jakub gave us plenty of time to explore and get lunch. There are many options and places to visit, plus the views are breathtaking. We had an amazing time. On the way home, we ran into trouble with traffic and eventually got stuck in the snow trying to go over a hill. Jakub was amazing and managed to drive us home in horrible conditions, and a massive thank you as well as the 4 guys who helped push us up the hill. We would not be making our flight home without him!
My guide Yola was very knowledgeable and passionate about the history of the castle grounds and its ancient roots and its time capsule nature in profiling the beginnings of Kraków. I learned from the tour how much the castle and the cathedral played an integral part for Krakow's, or indeed Poland's, history. Yola was kind enough to answer our questions from the group.
We arrived in Zakopane about 1:45 from Krakow. You reach a stunning area in its beauty. It is recommended to go to the cable car and enjoy the view of the Tetra Mountains. If you have time and the driver allows So it is also advisable to do snowmobile trips
The driver was early, polite and informative. We did this tour on our first afternoon and it gives you a good idea of the city and you can get your bearings. The Polish are a friendly nation and the driver was very pleasant.
Great way to see all city sites especially if you have walking difficulties Damien was a wonderful guide and had great knowledge of his city and you can tell he is proud to tell people about krakow
