    We arrived in Poland hours before it was announced that the country shut down due to Coronavirus pandemic. All cultural institutions had already been confirmed to close and we were worried what we would be able to still do whilst in the country. I found this tour and it absolutely saved our weekend. The tour company were informative and helpful and the guide went out of his way to make us feel comfortable and to show us as much of the Tetra Mountain park as he possibly could, particularly in the face of closures and quarantines. The efforts he went through to make us comfortable and find us somewhere that would still serve us lunch was commendable and I would absolutely recommend this operator to anybody else travelling to the region.

A nice get away from Krakow. The driver was extremely good, knowledgeable, giving us the right information and giving us options what to do. I recommend this tour if you want to get away from the city and meet the countryside!!!

Patrick is a great, knowledgeable and considerate guide. Many shops etc were closed due to the Corona measures but that’s not up to the tour organizers of course (maybe some research before would have helped though).

Well organized trip. First stop was rafting with a nice scenery. Second we had the option to go to the tree top walk and then we went to Zakopane with a very nice view.

absolutely fantastic trip excellent driver/guide whole day was 11 out of 10
