Absolutely Fantastic Trip! A must if visiting Poland. Transfer was very smooth and picked us up and dropped us off right outside our hotel. Firstly driving to a small hut in the mountains where we had smoked cheese and vodka (tastes amazing!!!) then after a short drive - we were given 3 hours of free time. The ride on the funicular took us to the most scenic views of Zakopane (breathtaking). Then we wandered around town and ate lots of food and checked out local shops. 100% recommend. Book this trip.

Perfect tour in everything. Thomas, our escort, arrived on time at the hotel for pick up. The first stop was in the very charming and quaint village of Chocholow. The cheese tasting that took place in the second stage was also excellent where Thomas explained to us in detail how cheeses are produced, he prepared a cheese tasting accompanied by a very good jam and two small glasses of Vodka. We then headed to Zakopane where we had 2.5 hours free to tour the country and have lunch. The last step of the tour was the ascent with the funicular to the Gubalowka hill, the one at the top is really beautiful. Thanks to Thomas for taking us to these places and making the day perfect and smooth.

I booked this trip to Zakepone with my dad and it was the highlight of our holiday in Poland! Our driver and guide was Thomas and he was extremely friendly, patient and knowledgeable about the area. We loved the cheese tasting where Thomas cooked the highlander cheese for us and gave us some Polish vodka too. We had 2.5 hours in Zakapone which was plenty of time to explore and take photos of the picturesque town! We finished the day with the funicular up to see the town from the mountains. It was extremely great value and we would fully recommend this trip - it has all 5 star reviews for a reason! Thank you Thomas!
