1. Dunajec River Gorge and Zakopane: Full-Day Trip from Krakow

Travel from Krakow to the Dunajec River Gorge and Tatra Mountains, the most picturesque tourist attractions in southern Poland, on a 12-hour excursion. Marvel at the beauty of the gorge, featured on UNESCO's Tentative List of World Heritage Sites in Poland. Wooden raft trips have been offered since the early 19th century, when customers were guests of the nearby Niedzica and Czorsztyn castles. Your raft trip begins in the village of Sromowce Wyżne-Kąty and ends in the resort town of Szczawnica, 18 kilometers downstream. Enjoy a restaurant lunch at your own expense after rafting. Continue to Zakopane to ride a rail car to admire the Tatra Mountains from the peak of Gubalowka.

Our guide Marek Etgins was an excellent tour guide. He was very informative although his job was mainly to drop us off and pick us up. He was very accommodating. He allowed use to change our tour day of the tour. We were suppose to go to Gubalovka but we request instead to go to Kasprawy Wiech which was a mush better option with breathe taking views. He took us to a great restaurant where they served traditional foods and he took the time to explain the foods and culture. One of our fellow passengers forgot their backpack at this restaurant. He took the time to drive all the way back 45min drive to get it. He spent a lot of time with us the tour was suppose to be 2-3 hour shorter but he allowed us the extra time for a better experience.

Dunajec River Gorge and Zakopane: Full-Day Trip from Krakow

Philip our guide was great and was with us every step of the way to help, advise and translate as and when required. There was just Annie and myself on the tour so we had the luxury of a limousine to ourselves and of course the services of Philip on a one to one basis. We had a really nice day, we learnt a lot from Philip about life in Poland, he was so knowledgeable, he is a credit to the tour group. I highly recommend this trip. Thank you Philip

Amazing tour with an amazing driver. We were the only ones who booked the tour on Monday. Our driver Thomas showed us around and stopped as long as we wanted at every location. The rafting was definitely the highlight of this trip. I would recommend to put on something warm if you're going to do this tour in October.

Well organized trip. First stop was rafting with a nice scenery. Second we had the option to go to the tree top walk and then we went to Zakopane with a very nice view.

The guide Marrk was very nice and helpful The rail ride in Zakopane into a commercial area with a second rate views was a disappointment
