We would definitely recommend this tour! Thomas the tour guide was so friendly and spoke very good English. The tour itself was brilliant start to finish, it was great to see some traditional polish cultures and point of history along the way to! Thomas made the whole day run soomthly for us tourists, and nothing was too much trouble. We really couldn't have wishes for a better day or tour guide, if you're heading to Krakow this is a must do trip!!

Excellent day - definitely a must do when in Krakow! Tips - don’t spend too much time up the mountain or you’ll miss out on seeing Zakopane town. I’m not a fan of jacuzzis but the thermal baths are really cool and a welcome end to the day! Monika our guide was wonderful, if you’re doing this tour go with Thousand Miles as they were faultless from being on time to the minute to giving us recommendations whilst we’re in Krakow. 10/10

Pros - Tour guide Joanna was lovely and very helpful. Shepard’s hut was a nice , added a cultured stop on the trip to try there cheese and wine. Lovely view in the mountains and lots of little markets. Hot springs - best part, relaxing and time few by. Cons- Almost 6 hours is driving. (But worth it) Minibus’s was about 100 degrees. Ideas - Add another stop or two to view more of Poland so that the drive doesn’t feel as long.

The tour was amazing!! Plenty involved and provided plenty of time for us to explore by ourselves. Guide was extremely helpful and friendly Adam and Patrick!! . Thoroughly enjoyed the thermal spas with the outside bar!! Couldn't recommend highly enough and best part of our trip so far!! Aisha

Had an amazing day, our driver and guide patryk was lovely and made the day run very smoothly, thank you again :)
