We are delighted with all the care and attention that Dominika and Marcel had with us during the entire trip. The Communication was unambiguous, and they were available at all times to answer any questions and adjust the necessary details. Excellent professional conveyed peace and security. We had a wonderful tour. I highly recommend it because I want everyone to have a wonderful time in Poland as we had.

Our tour today was fantastic! The driver was very witty and on time and the drive itself was comfortable. It was snowing really hard so the roads were a bit dangerous but our driver was very cautious and made sure we got home safely. Zakopane was indeed very busy and with a lot of tourists, but we had plenty of time to see everything we wanted to see. On the way to Zakopane we made two additional stops which were very interesting!

You get a good amount of time to enjoy zakopane I recommend getting tickets for the funicular! The little market at the bottom of the funicular is very nice, as is the market at the top! There are some really nice traditional stalls selling handmade products. I went when the weather was warm and will go back when it is winter as I imagine it is super pretty in the winter months. There is a lot to see, I recommend also going on the little Ferris wheel as you see some good scenes.

The driver was very nice and we were picked up right on time for our apartment. However, the town of Zakopane was a bit disappointing, is very touristy. I had chosen a self guided trip with thermal baths in Chocholowski. Was a very nice and clean pool with a beautiful view.
