I can not recommend this tour enough which was made even better by our outstanding guide Krzysztof! His abundance of knowledge and enthusiasm made this trip one to remember.

On the journey to Zakopane we had a comfort break, stopped at a traditional highlander house and even crossed the boarder into Slovakia. Arriving in Zakopane we had a coffee break/second breakfast and then visited the local museum. We then visited an original highlander church before riding the funicular to the top of Mt.Gubalowka. We witnessed amazing views and tucked into a tasty traditional goulash. We were then given free time to explore Zakopane before journeying back to Kraków.

Very interesting and knowledgeable guide
Oct 2019
We were greeted at the pick up point by our guide Jacek and driver Marek. Both were very polite and professional. The weather throughout the day was awful but obviously that's just one of this things that can't be helped. Our guide Jacek was great, full of information and didn't stop from collection right through to being dropped off later on that day. With the weather being so bad Jacek did fantastically well making sure that the day was still an enjoyable one.
First we stopped off at a place called Chochołów which was a small village where the majority of the houses were made out of wood. We called in to a typical "Highlander's" house where there was a bloke carving stuff out of wood. Was more interesting than it sounds.
From there we stopped off at one of the many cheese making huts en route to Zakopane. Here we tried some of the cheeses and some of the incredibly strong vodka. After here we made it to Zakopane where we visited two churches and a cemetery. We then called in to a museum for approx 50 mins and then went for lunch and a wander around the town. After lunch we took the funicular railway to look at the mountains. As it was raining we didn't see a great deal but thats nobody's fault. Afterwards we took the funicular back down and wandered through the market at the bottom and then back to the bus.
All things considered Jacek did an amazing job keeping us entertained and finding things of interest to do with the weather being so dreadful so I can only commend him for this.

A beautiful change from the City of Krakow
Sep 2019 • Family
Well worth taking a day out to visit Zakopane. The scenery is stunning & there's plenty to do in the town or if you ride to the top on the train.
Beware though even if you decide to walk down there's a charge???

Dear Customer, Thank you for your feedback! Yes, it is crazy! but there is an area which is privat and there is fee if you want to use the path which is the nearest to the funicular, but there are a lot of paths where you don't have to pay. Hope you wil reach the top of Gubałówka again! We are looking forward to see you in Kraków ! Regards, Cracow Tours Team

One of the best tours we have been at. Jacek our tour guide really made a lot of effort to keep everyone entertained and made us laugh lots of times. His knowledge about Zakopane history and culture is outstanding we would definitely recommend this to anyone who wants to have a good time and learn about Polish history and culture. The trip went very smooth just too short!

Far too touristy
The guide was terrific and told us lots of history about the highlanders; the weather was great and the visit to the wood carver and traditional homes was interesting. We were, however very disappointed with how touristy it was at the top of the funicular. We couldn’t believe how many stalls lined the route selling everything from souvenirs to rides on jumping castles. I think it would be much better if it was all a national park and you could do day or half day walks from the top of the funicular and enjoy the scenery.

Well organise, great company and good guide.

From the moment we got on the bus we were made welcome. The guide was warm and friendly and was there to make our day as enjoyable as possible. The group of people were lovely and we soon made new friends.

Our guide was very knowledgable and there were plenty of places to see and plenty of things to do. On a good day I think the views from the Tatra Mountain would be wonderful but if its raining I would take the option to stay in Zakopane and do some more exploring.

Very lovely
This was a smaller group tour from Krakow. It was about a 3 hr drive from the city, along mostly major highways.
Unfortunately, the weather was rainy and chilly, but it did clear enough to get some great views!
In the town, we had free time for lunch and shopping.
The group visited an interesting little folklife museum, complete with an authentic wooden cabin.
Our guide was very nice and informative, giving us a lot of background information on history, geography, etc of the area. A very enjoyable day, despite the weather.

Lovely day trip in bad weather.

Weather let this trip down but the tour guide more than made up for this. He was a wealth of information and was very interesting to listen to. We could not see the mountains as the mist was thick and it was raining which was a shame but the place itself was lovely.
