The tour guide need help translating and understanding

The tour guide spoke virtually no English and could not relate to us anything. I think he was just the driver that was tapped at the last moment to be the "guide" as well. He was so concerned about traffic that he wanted to return to the city early so he didn't have to deal with traffic. The place was beautiful but we didn't have enough time to explore.

Fab day out - wonderful to get out into the countryside

We met our guide Tomac at the tourist office in the main square and were told it was just us in the car - so in effect a private tour. Tomac was really knowledgeable and explained lots about the area. Zakopane had snow 2 days before so was really picturesque. We went up the funicular railway to the top where there were lots of xmas market stalls. We then met Tomac a couple of hours later and went into town where he dropped us off for another couple of hours. He then took us to the Olympic ski jumps and showed us the typical wooden houses on the way home. A full day out but really worth it.

Cracow Local Tours is a guarantee. We trusted them and they were very kind, precise and efficient. Above all, our driver Miki was a great help; nice, kind and very helpful. He accompanied us throughout our journey, without any problem. I recommend any experience with this agency, because I was satisfied with mine.
