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. Alternatively, choose the option which includes tickets for 2.5 hours in Chochołów Thermal Pools or the other option which includes guided visits to Gubałówka Mountain, Wielka Krokiew Ski Jump, and a Wooden Mansion built in a traditional architectural style.

Visit itself was pleasant, with some great scenic views. Lots of time to stroll around and eat/drink. Souvenir stalls mainly cheap rubbish. Didn't really appreciate the driver hurrying us up when he arrived 15 minutes before the time I was advised. Also drove way over the speed limits on the way.

We had an amazing day at Zakopane! Our driver Igor kept us updated on our pick-up time in the morning via WhatsApp (due to traffic in the area) and we thoroughly enjoyed visiting the Tatra Mountains! After the cable car ride up there, Igor took us to the Tatra Museum and to the Ski Jump! He was a great driver/guide and we got free time to visit the centre which is a must! Great day out and felt very christmassy!

the pick up to begin with was on time and the comfort for the journey was first class. As for zakopane it's self what a beautiful place to visit. We started our visit with our trip on the funicular railway not knowing what to expect at the top and we were blown away with the spectacular views and the amount of amenities and stalls available aswell as the amount of different activities you would be able to do. We then went for a walk around the town centre that was beautifully well kept with lots of different stalls, shops and restaurants to visit. then on our journey back our driver took us on a slight detour so that we could stop at a look out point with spectacular views
