Great tour! So nice to get put of the cities and see the beautiful countryside. Its very different to Krakow. I was by myself and Thomas, my guide and driver was great, gave me plenty of information and answered my continual questions! The mountains are spectacular, and along the way I saw gorgeous UNESCO villages, tasted some of the delicious traditional cheese as learnt about how it was made at a very authentic stop, as well other other buildings (I wont spoil it for you) and areas. Plenty to see along the way! Zakopane itself is bustling very beautiful town, full of traditional and tourist style markets and great places to eat. Beautiful scenery and views. Highly recommend.

Thomas was a wonderful guide. He explained everything to us. He gave us enough time at each stop and never felt rushed. Wonderful day.
Tomac - the best tour guide and the most loveliest gentleman.

Wow, what a trip? Tomac was an amazing guide and driver. Couldn’t have done more for us. Even helped my mum put on her coat every time she got out of the car. Told us we could stop any time for the toilet or a coffee. Took us to Zakopane with some stops on the way. We did the famous cheese tasting which I have to say is a must to try, it was delicious. Tomac did it all for us, even grilled the cheese on the fire for us. We stopped off at a really pretty village where all the houses were made from wood. Also stopped at the biggest ski slope in Poland. He told us at every stop to take our time and we did t have to rush back. He was so attentive and so lovely. We are coming back and booking him for more trips!!
Beautiful views and wonderful culture

I accidentally booked a private tour and turned out to be the best accident I could have made! I was able to move more at my own pace and wasn’t worried about time at all. I was able to enjoy and take everything in.
One day trip to Zakopane

I enjoyed my day trip to Zakopane as Tomek picked me from Krakow to Zakopane main square(center) where all the cute shops, cafes, and shows were live on the street. Loved the cute little houses of Zakopane it gives a different vibe than Krakow. Lastly after a day well spent in the center of Zakopane, Tomek got me a cable car
