Great trip to the Polish Mountains organized by the Poland Active and lead by Maciek. Definitely something to remember for a long time and repeat in the future with other directions to explore nature and culture around Krakow and Zakopane. Individual approach, comfortable car, on time, relaxed atmosphere, good sense of humour, and nice way of sharing knowledge during the tour. Amazing trip and great day. Strongly recommend to Others. Many thanks to Maciek from Patryk / Carlos & Bela.

Absolutely stunning place to visit, especially this time of year when the whole village and surrounding mountains are covered in snow. Attempted the cable car up to the tatra mountains, but as an acrophobic I probably shouldn’t have done! The tour guide was lovely, explained and answered anything we wanted, and as it was only us two, it was pretty much a private tour and we got to choose where we went and what we did. Highly recommend coming here if you’re visiting Krakow

Szanowni Państwo, jestem po raz ósmy w Krakowie i po raz ósmy w Zakopanem. To co wydarzyło się dziś nosi znamiona ,,czegoś" całkowicie odrealnionego. Ale może od początku wycieczka do Zakopanego niestety jednodniowa, rozpoczęła się o 8.00 ku naszemu zdziwieniu miast pojazdu w typie bus, czekał na nas terenowy samochód wraz z bardzo kulturalnym przewodnikiem, od progu uśmiechniętym, otwierającym drzwi wejściowe do auta! Podczas podróży serwowano nam przecudnej urody opowieści związane z otaczającą nas przyrodą i zabytkami znajdującymi się na trasie przejazdu Kraków- Zakopane. Na miejsce dotarliśmy w bardzo przyzwoitym czasie, Pan Mateusz zaproponował rozkład dnia, był niesamowicie kompetentny, otwarty na rodzące się potrzeby. Swą osobą nienarzucający się, niezmiernie taktowny. W sposób fenomenalny dopasowywał swoje wypowiedzi zarówno do dziecka jak i osoby dorosłej! Korzystałam z Państwa usug, jednak dzisiejszego dnia nie można potraktować w kategorii usługi, był to cudowny czas spęd
