We arrived in Poland hours before it was announced that the country shut down due to Coronavirus pandemic. All cultural institutions had already been confirmed to close and we were worried what we would be able to still do whilst in the country. I found this tour and it absolutely saved our weekend. The tour company were informative and helpful and the guide went out of his way to make us feel comfortable and to show us as much of the Tetra Mountain park as he possibly could, particularly in the face of closures and quarantines. The efforts he went through to make us comfortable and find us somewhere that would still serve us lunch was commendable and I would absolutely recommend this operator to anybody else travelling to the region.
We enjoyed it! Was kind of like a private tour because it was only two of us joining the tour + the driver haha And the driver is so friendly too. Gubalowka mountain and zakopane were indeed beautiful. Was given 3 free hours so I played snowmobile up there, And took a horse drawn sleigh haha , took a lot of nice picture and enjoyed a breathtaking view from up there was really unforgettable. Had lunch with a view of snowy mountains felt surreal . But 3 hours obviously not enough, we wanted more free time up there please
I have booked the private tour for myself, my son and husband (my son being adult) and we enjoyed it a lot, having a driver makes the experience a lot more enjoyable rather then stressing where to go or park and figure out timing etc. Our driver Patrick was very intelligent and professional young man, highly recommended. As a procession I would just ask to pay attention to cost of the trip, as the price is not what you see as advertisement, specifically when reviewing in zloty but paying in dollars, totals are tripled.
Our driver - Andrew and our guide - Magda were fabulous. Very courteous, gracious, knowledgeable and kind. The salt mine tour and tour of Krakow are interesting and enjoyable. The details of our trip were confusing. Pick up times changed 3x and the pick-up place changed 2x. Our itinerary also stated that we had a ride from the train to our apartment and when I called, I was told there would be no driver. So the arrangement details were not reliable
Patrick is a great, knowledgeable and considerate guide. Many shops etc were closed due to the Corona measures but that’s not up to the tour organizers of course (maybe some research before would have helped though).
