What people are saying about Presov Region

Very enjoyable day out and great way to see more of the Tatra Mountains. Journey was not difficult or long from Krakow and driver/guide was very accommodating and helpful as and when we needed. Plenty of time to enjoy the treetop walk although if we had walked up instead of taking the cable car this might have been tight. Recommend doing the slide down but it is an additional 2 euro-worth remembering you don't pay in zlotys as in Slovakia! Cable car extra as well which is 11 euro each, view at the top is beautiful. Tour in Zakopane is not really a tour more a chance to explore the main street which has plenty of shops, access to the cable car up to the top which is worth doing for the views and plenty of good shops to buy gifts. Arrived back in Krakow not too tired as well so a good use of a day exploring further afield

small group, well organized, friendly driver. Unfortunately the driver told us in front of us that we had to buy tickets for the gondola and the Baumkronenweg and when we bought them he gave us tickets and had them twice ... still recommended.
