"Great Value Excursion"

Our driver Thomas was simply superb & spoke fluent English & explained everything so well !! The mini-van was clean & comfortable for the 4 passengers . Rafting was so lovely & the only down side was our aching bottoms sitting on the wooden plank style seats as it was a two hour ride down the river . Zakopane was really lovely with the funicular tickets provided & sufficient time to enjoy the town etc .This was a 12 hour trip door to door & absolutely GREAT -THANK YOU THOMAS !

Loved the tour.

Thank you for a wonderful tour! Rafting on the Danube is a fantastic sight! Safe rafting made it possible to see the mountains in all its beauty, caused a complete delight. Two hours passed quickly! And then we went to Zakopane and conquered Mount Gubalupka on the funicular, from where amazing landscapes open! Our driver and guide Cris drove the car very carefully along a difficult track, making our trip comfortable and safe! Thanks for the 12 hours of magical travel!

A Nice Relaxing Tour

Pickup and dropoff at hotel was included. Started with river raft tour which lasted about 2 hours. Our guides did not speak English. Then went to Zakopane. Only complaint was that I wish we would have gotten our tickets to go up the hill when we got there instead of meeting up later after lunch and shopping, since a lot of the fun stuff was already closed when we got up there and were allotted 45 minutes.

We were very enthusiastic about the tour with Rafał, he picked us up at the hotel on time and the journey began. He showed us a lot and explained a lot. What you should know, however, is that it is best to take a seat cushion with you for the trip on the Danube, the trip takes a little longer than 2 hours and the seat is uncomfortably hard. But it was very worth it.

Excellent tour and excellent service. Is to be recommended without reservation. Perfect support from the guide. Thank you so much!
