Our driver was at the airport waiting on our arrival despite a delay at Stansted. Although he didn't speak perfect English, he could understand what we meant and found my attempt at pronouncing where we were staying entertaining ! haha. The car was pristine, lots of room and was very comfortable. On the way back, our driver was excellent. He picked us up from our apartment with plenty of time and we had a lovely chat on the way back to the airport. Shame he had to bring us back as we'd have loved to have stayed. A very efficient service and we'd recommend them for any transfers.

Driver came at wrong time. Waited an hour and had to call to see where he was. Not good for Viator ..
Response from Host, Apr 2024
Thank you for choosing Discover Cracow. We are very sorry for the situation. I just want to point out that we pick up customers 2.5 hours before departure. Maybe there was a misunderstanding when providing the pick-up time and we got the pick-up time instead of the departure time.
Early Pick-up
JoelP_B, Mar 2024
The timeliness and professionalism of our driver, Paczka, was remarkable. Early 3:30 AM pick up. Was at the airport in 15 minutes. On the way, the driver shared a bit of history of Krakow and sights to see if we ever decide to return. This service is highly recommended.

Nice clean car with a reliable service
William_B, Jan 2024
Nice clean Mercedes MPV that appeared promptly and on time, with good communications. It was our transfer from hotel to Krakow airport, so didn't want to rely on public transport on New Year's Day. Only tip is to be sure when booking to put in the time of your flight, not the time of your desired pick up (which is how I read their question), since we were nearly picked up at 5.30 am!

Never arrived to collect us
Kevin_T, Jul 2023
Booked a 0415 transfer and the driver never showed up and the contact number provided is only answered during normal office hours. We ended up having to pay extra to find a taxi to do the transfer
Response from Host, Jul 2023
Dear guest, thank you for your reviev. We are very sorry for this experience. We will try to find out what happened in this particular situation and we will not allow something similar to happen again
Awful service . Will never use again . Driver didn’t show up
CLAIRE_M, May 2023
I paid and had confirmation driver would pick us up at the hotel to take us to airport . After waiting half an hour no driver showed up and no contact from company. I also had no tel number to call . We had to quickly get 2 taxis for 5 adults at our own cost . Despite leaving numerous messages the company have failed to respond to me at all to refund me . This is the most important pick up to get you to the airport on time to catch a flight. Not showing up is disgusting. Luckily our taxis sped to the airport and we caught our flight. I would never trust or use this company ever again . Totally let down and ruined the last moments of our holiday due to the stress caused. I am now out of pocket having paid and no refund and having also paid for 2 taxis. I have had no communication from the company at all about this .

Thank you for choosing Discover Craow! We are very sorry for the situation. However, we always provide a number to contact in case of any inconvenience. There is a high possibility that the wrong pick-up time has been given, because for departures, the flight time must be entered, not the pick-up time. We apologize for the situation.
Excellent service
Rod_J, Apr 2023
Sebastian was early for pickup and let us know. He was friendly and the car was roomy for all our luggage and the four of us. Excellent.
Wiktoria_K, Nov 2022

Let down the day before we flew
Sarah_O, Jul 2022
Mixed experience. Despite booking months in advance and reconfirming twice our pick up was cancelled the day before we flew. Apparently they could not get a driver. I a, glad we got 24 hours notice and we’re not allowed to find out on the day or after we landed but I a, very disappointed that despite everything they chose to cancel our booking. They offered a refund and this was processed via Viator for 50% of the cost of the return booking. However, taking a taxi cost us a lot more than the refund so we were left out of pocket. Therefore I cannot recommend this company. Return journey to airport was without incident.
Response from Host, Jul 2022
Dear Sarah, We are very sorry about this situation. We know this must be disappointing as you have booked months before. Unfortunately we only learned the day before that there are no drivers that will be able to do this tranfser. We did everything we can to find you a replacement for that day but unfortunately couldn't. We hope we can make it up to you on your next visit to Poland. Best regards DiscoverCracow

Did not show at all got a cab which was cheaper and nicer car. Complete scam and I’d never touch it again.
Reliable airport transfer
Sharon_W, May 2022
Always nervous when ordering a taxi in case doesn’t turn up. No issues with this. Was waiting in arrivals with board with my name on it and arrived at 4am to take us back. Thank you!
Great airport transfer
Karen_R, Apr 2022
Our driver waited, sign in hand and smile on face. He helped with baggage, drove safely and was a great local guide, sharing information about the area, places to visit, good food and when to be cautious etc. we felt really looked after and relaxed arriving at our rented apartment. Thank you.
