We have just got back from an absolutely AMAZING day with Matthew. Firstly, I’d like to thank him for his patience when I got the tour times wrong. Matthew was extremely informative and knew so many historic facts that made the trip so much more personal. The trip in the cable car was so enjoyable and even though we had a lot of fog, we still got some amazing pictures at the top of the mountain. Then we went for a traditional lunch in Zakopane which was so delicious. Then we had a chance to look around Zakopane itself and finished the trip with a visit to a Shephard hut for some traditional cheese tasting. Matthew was a fantastic mountain and tour guide, we highly recommend him and will definitely use him again on future trips.

Zakopane is well worth the visit, such beautiful scenery, and a great trip up the funicular railway. Our driver was super, very knowledgable and keen for us to have a great trip. Thermal baths were very relaxing! I’d recommend this tour

Tour was as described and driver/tour guide got us safely to/back, was pleasant, friendly, polite, and on time. Would highly recommend!
