Our guide Mirek was really helpful and ensured we had a great day. We were sent loads of useful tips on where to go to get the very day out the the trip. It was fun and informative. Mirek also arranged all of the bits of the day in the best order so that we could enjoy it according to limitations with the weather. We would recommend the trip. The bus was a little tight but everything else was great 👍 x

The trip was excellent. The guide was perfect...the right level of humour, information and helpfulness. The one issue was the music on the bus. Some of the lyrics were highly inappropriate for a young audience and the same few tracks were played repeatedly for the 1.5 hours return journey. Loved the experience.

our guide for the day was Adam, he was great! so friendly and informative, had a really good day!

Mido, our driver and guide made the visit so much more memorable. We can't thank him enough.

Wonderful trip! Dawid was an excellent guide and driver. Highly recommend this tour!
