Would definitely recommend this day trip to anyone visiting Krakow, especially if visiting for a short period whilst wanting to visit Zakopane. Thomas was super helpful, provided insight/historical background on the sights visited as well as recommendations.

Absolutely Fantastic Trip! A must if visiting Poland. Transfer was very smooth and picked us up and dropped us off right outside our hotel. Firstly driving to a small hut in the mountains where we had smoked cheese and vodka (tastes amazing!!!) then after a short drive - we were given 3 hours of free time. The ride on the funicular took us to the most scenic views of Zakopane (breathtaking). Then we wandered around town and ate lots of food and checked out local shops. 100% recommend. Book this trip.
