We had an amazing trip! The tour operator knew a lot about Zakopane and its surroundings. Before visiting Zakopane we had a stop at a cute village with a local cheese smokery. We tasted a lot of amazing sheep cheeses and some local wodka! In Zakopane we received the freedom to fill in our own hours. That was great! I can recommend this tour to everyone. We had an amazing time, it was really worth the money!

The Zakopane tour was great. Really nice to see the countryside and a different way of life compared to Krakow. The cheese tasting was amazing! I cant remember the name of our guide but he was really helpful and would definitely recommend

Very nice and very patient driver. He was 5 min late: hop, a sms warning us! Impeccable. Unmissable excursion. The mountain under the snow was magnificent. Nice walk to recommend.

We (family with 2 teenagers) can recommend this tour to everyone. Everything was great, driver and the transport were perfect.

Fantastic day trip up to Zakopone! Our guide Kamil was great and the vehicle was very comfortable.
