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

The best experience ever! Our driver Philip was so kind. The weather was beatiful, the views. I recommed this company to everyone
