Thomas was an incredible guide in every way. His English was superb and his knowledge of the history of Poland and Polish culture really brought our day to life. And we really appreciated his friendliness and great sense of humor. All of the events of our day were timed perfectly. Thomas is a real professional and worth every penny. We highly recommend him for your vacation in Poland. The day spent with him was the highlight of our trip!

Excellent Day Trip

The mountains were beautiful and we very much enjoyed the campfire and snacks at the end of the day. Tomasz was super knowledgeable about the history of the region, very flexible about the day, and made sure we had a memorable time. He was kind enough to send us videos of our sleigh ride and some restaurant recommendations in Krakow. We also really enjoyed chatting with Tomasz!

The day was great from start to finish . Our tour guide was very friendly and helpful and we enjoyed his knowledge of the local area.Zakapan was a magical winter wonderland and a must see if you visit krakow. The cable car ride to the top of the mountain was great and the views from the top were breathtaking. The sleigh ride in the national park with Bon fire and local food was excellent and a great experience . Over all this trip was the best part of our visit and would do it again if I return to krakow .
Great day
Alex_C, Feb 2022
A long but very enjoyable day. Janis our driver was very punctual and friendly and looked after us all day. We were picked up at 08:00 from our hotel in Krakow. We were lucky enough to have good snow conditions and a clear blue sunny day for our day. Janis recommended the chairlift option as it was such a nice day which was good advice and gave great views. The sleigh ride was excellent and the team looked after us and shared some interesting facts and information. The BBQ was very good and tasty. My only observation is that all promotional photos show a sleigh pulled by two horses when all sleigh's are pulled by a single horse (even with 5 people). Not a big issue but a bit misleading. We got back to the hotel at about 19:30.
A must for first time visitors

Getting to ride in a sleigh off a mountain carrying a torch. I can’t complain about that. Tomas is also the best tour guide in Krakow.
