What people are saying about Chochołów

What a great day out. This is a trip everyone who visits Krakow area must do. The scenery is amazing, the water is calm but still exciting enough sailing over rocks. Safe for kids and the raft guides are super entertaining. But they only speak Polish. So if you want to understand all the awesome jokes then bring a Polish speaking translator, you will pee yourself laughing. The booking company was great and the driver Milosc really cared about us all and made sure we had the best possible experience. He was very knowledgeable and tried to make the day unforgettable. The vehicle was super luxurious and the long drives were very relaxing and comfortable. If you are in the krakow area, then you must do this tour.

We booked at the last minute, but Paul made every effort to accommodate us the next day. We were picked up on time by the driver: Tony. A very friendly man who did everything to make us wish. The boat trip was a unique experience. You were pushed by two men in traditional clothing and they told you everything about the nature reserve. It's not nearly as touristy as Zakopane. Really very nice! Tip; bring cash if you want a drink at the starting point. Unfortunately, you can't pin.

Excellent experience and superb guide. Pawel was extremely nice and caring and always ensuring we were having a good time! Our satisfaction and wellbeing was his top priority and left us without words with his kindness and excellent service. Could not recommend him enough!! Both rafting and thermal baths were really nice and we had a great time.

Really good trip on the river, so nice. The guide did not speak much English, but a really good local experience. The guide who picked us up was incredibly good, knew a lot about the things we saw, spoke perfect English and drove safely and well.

Amazing experience, our driver Pavel really went above and beyond to make sure we had a fantastic time in a beautiful part of Poland.
