Such a brilliant tour! Jacob was very friendly and knowledgeable about Polish culture. We enjoyed the visit to the village house and cheese tasting but most of all the mountains were beautiful. Such a great escape from the city. Highly recommend!

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).

Our tour guide Patrick was great, gave us lots of info and took us to wonderful places. I highly recommend this tour.

Magnificent and exotic activities. Very good support from the driver. Strongly recommended !
