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

During the trip, we were served stories of wonderful beauty related to the surrounding nature and monuments located on the route Krakow-Zakopane. We arrived at the place in a very decent time, Mr. His person was unimposing, extremely tactful. He perfectly adapted his statements to both a child and an adult! I used your services, but today you cannot treat it as a service, it was a wonderful time to spend
