Mya organised the trip very well through WhatsApp before and during the trip. She explained and described important cultural and historical facts that made the trip all the more interesting. The only problem was the rain, but there is nothing that can be done about that.

Highly recommend, our guide Maja was extremely helpful and friendly, also very informative throughout the trip. The trip has lot’s of beautiful scenery to take photos of, the cheese was delicious, going up the mountain was very fun and doing the gravity ride.

May I suggest that the guide use the two hours drive to the place, to tell the turists - most of them having the first trip to the area - to tell about what we see, about the country, culture, some music --- added value on an expensive ride.

couldn't fault the trip to zakopane it was a great day out also pass on thanks to Maja our guide who was excellent and a credit to your company

The trip was amazing. So much to see along the way. Wellnworth the money
