The van was a bit cramped with 8 of us. But the trip and stops were amazing. It was definitely worth it and I would do it again. Our driver was good, but at each stop he smoked and I am allergic to smoke so it was a bit tough, as I was in the middle up front!

Couldn’t have asked for a better tour and a better tour guide - jacob Krupa was amazing, very patient and accommodating. Went with my husband and parents and couldn’t have asked for anything better, this trip is such good value for money.

We would have preferred more time in Zakopane and less time in the baths. 3 hours is too much time in the baths we would of preferred 3 hours in Zakopane

Driver was very sweet and enthusiastic throughout the journey. Trip was relaxing and the view was breathtaking. Was worth the money in my opinion:)

Artur is a nice tour guide, the highlight in Krakow would be Zakopane day tour and thermal spa
