Full description
Start your day trip in the morning where you will be picked up at the reception of your hotel. Enjoy a 2-hour drive to the lovely village of Zakopane while your English-speaking driver provides commentary along the way.   After arriving in Zakopane, you'll have 5 hours of free time to explore the village on your own. You can try delicious Polish cuisine, or visit the local market to admire the creations of Polish craftsmen and try the popular smoked cheese. Enter a wooden villa built in a traditional architectural style, or walk through the picturesque streets — the choice is yours.  Select the option including tickets for the funicular railway and travel to the top of Gubałówka mountain. Enjoy the view of the village and admire the peaks of the Polish Tatra Mountains around you. During your visit, the driver will wait for you, and after 5 hours you travel back to Krakow together.

You get a good amount of time to enjoy zakopane I recommend getting tickets for the funicular! The little market at the bottom of the funicular is very nice, as is the market at the top! There are some really nice traditional stalls selling handmade products. I went when the weather was warm and will go back when it is winter as I imagine it is super pretty in the winter months. There is a lot to see, I recommend also going on the little Ferris wheel as you see some good scenes

The driver was very nice and we were picked up right on time for our apartment. However, the town of Zakopane was a bit disappointing, is very touristy. I had chosen a self guided trip with thermal baths in Chocholowski. Was a very nice and clean pool with a beautiful view.

Lovely day

Early start but the driver was there to pick us up in good time. Good journey with comfort stops. Plenty of time in Zakopane. Beautiful place with lots of markets and had a ride in the lift to the top of the mountain. Had lunch with spectacular views. It even snowed a little which added to the atmosphere. The bus was comfortable and the driver helpful.
