An awesome day today. My wife and I ended up with a private tour. Our guide maciek was the best. So full of knowledge. As soon as we got in the car he pointed out local places of interest. We stopped several times to visit places such as churches and a cheese shepherds hut. We had 2 hours of free time in the town then went up the cable car. Our guide recommended is a place for lunch- and it was great. We were allowed up to 4 hours at the thermal baths- however with just the two of us we didn’t need the full 4 hours- our guide was more than happy to leave when we were ready. Overall a fantastic day and couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Thanks maciek :)

My son, 17, really enjoyed our time at the thermal baths - he particularly enjoyed the slides. For me, it was the view of the snow topped mountains from the outside thermal pool. It was nearly a 2 hour drive from our hotel (Hilton Doubletree) in Krakow, but worth it. Definitely one for the family.

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

Magnificent and exotic activities. Very good support from the driver. Strongly recommended !

Guide was excellent. The baths are well equipped. Nice experience.
