I recently visited with my Family of 5 adults - (3 early 20's) in June of this year and I have not had many better days or trips if i'm honest...

Because- Jacob.....

Jacob if you are lucky enough to get him is absolutely superb..

So what is it all about - you book and then Jacob gets in touch to confirm what you need (Towel etc for swimming) and confirms times and collection location.
Day before you get a confirmation Text to let you know all is well - Brilliant Communication

Jacob arrives in a very smart and comfy vehicle for your "Private Tour" exactly on time outside you Hotel door - good start.

He makes sure you are all seated and comfy and introduces himself, tells you that "it is your day, so please enjoy and ask me anything"
We set off out of town for a 1.30 mins drive to our first destination, Jacob happy to tell you about everything and keeps you informed of local interests and surroundings, tells you about the houses, the families that lived there, the areas you are passing through - even the new road that is being built to take the increase in tourists up to the mountains

We arrive at our first destination Chocholow, where we are introduced to an 'Old lady' that looks after a 300 year old house, she speaks no English at all but Jacob is the perfect translator and you are given the full experience of 'how is used to be'. The Old lady just loves to tell you about all the bits and bobs they used to use and it is simply brilliant. There is no time constraints as Jacob is happy for you to take as long or as little time as you wish. Soak it up, the history is amazing

Next it is on to the next stop - Zakopane, again a full commentary from Jacob (now don't get me wrong here, Jacob is happy to be quiet or happy to answer any questions you ask. If you fall asleep on the journey he is cool with that and he is just as happy to keep you company. It is a rare quality that I really appreciated

We arrived in a Market Car Park and we were taken by Jacob into the market to enjoy some ' Grilled Cheese with Cranberry' - Try it, it's brilliant. Looks a bit strange but the flavour is awesome. Jacob will leave you at this point for about 40 mins to look around the market, whilst he goes off to get the tickets for your ride up the mountain for lunch.

Lunch can be taken on the mountain top and is very reasonably priced, lunch for 5 for less than £40 including a drink each, good food too
You can take as long as you like - Jacob gives you his mobile number and just text him when you are on your way back down. He meets you at the bottom and is generally interested to make sure you have had a good time

Then is it off to Bukowina Thermal Pools, we were lucky as we had brilliant weather, but don't worry as the Complex is first class, the water is really warm and there is plenty of stuff for the 'little and big kids' to do. We had 2 1/2 hours here and it was so relaxing and the air is so fresh and clean. The complex is clean, the water is clean and everything is just how it is supposed to be.

You come out and Jacob is waiting for you - makes you comfy, asks if you had a great time and then it's the drive back about 2 Hours, fall asleep - no worries, Jacob brings out neck cushions - OMG superb touch, plus we finish off the small picnic type bags Jacob gave us in the morning (forgot to mention earlier), Water, Banana and Chocolate Croissant.

I must add at this point that Jacob is an EXCELLENT DRIVER, never once did I feel nervous or anything. very smooth and controlled which is again a rare quality - even to the point of switching off the outside air when he noticed a vehicle in front with a 'not so clean engine'

All in all I simply cannot recommend the trip enough - Value for money is just ridiculous and .....

Jacob - you are an absolute credit to your company and your country - you made our day so special it was an absolute pleasure for me to write this review for you and I just hope that many more people take this trip as it was the highlight of my Holiday and a much needed break to the other trips taken the days before

Thank you so much from Paul, Chris, Josh, Lauren and Joe

The visit to the wooden house, up the mountain in Zakopane and the thermal pools are all great in their own ways but our guide Jacob really added something extra to the day. Very friendly, polite and really just wanted to ensure we had and did what we wanted. Highly recommended!

We’ve been in a krakow a few days and by far this was our best day yet!!
Our guide Jakob was the key to this whole day! He spoke English very well and it made all the difference! He thought of everything - from bathroom stops, to drinks and snacks, charging cords for our phones and even towels!!
The entire day was almost 11 hours and we honestly couldn’t have seen or done as much if he wasn’t with us.
The journey to Zakopane was almost 2 hours and we learned so much about Poland and he also learned a lot about America! I felt kind of bad for him because my dad talked nonstop asking some silly questions too but he laughed and answered and overall was a good sport the entire ride! We loved the entire trip and it was worth every penny!

We were a party of four and all found the trip to be a superb experience.
We were picked up on time by Jakub and were immediately greeted with a small packed lunch for the journey. Jakub was willing to answer all questions and to talk about his experiences and opinions while driving safely. Nothing was too much trouble, even recommending a restaurant to eat at afterwards, booking a table for us, dropping us off there and even walking us from the vehicle to the restaurant door! He is a very impressive young man and we were sorry to say goodbye to him! The views from the mountain were absolutely breathtaking and this was a side of Poland we would have missed without doing this trip.
Thoroughly recommended.

We spent morning until evening on a day trip to Zakopane, the beautiful Tatras, and the thermal pools. I could describe how fun, exciting and cool all of those sites were, but honestly, the best memories I have from that day trip were spending the day with our guide, Jakub.
I've had the good fortune to travel consistently over the last decade to many parts of the world, and I've not had a guide in any country, in any setting, as outstanding as Jakub. He was attentive, considerate, knowledgeable, a very very good driver, and overall just a joy to be with. Seriously, book this tour and ask for him.
In addition to the Zakopane day, we had arranged reservations through VISITUS for a dinner the previous night....transportation was not included in the package - but Jakub insisted on driving us *both ways* despite the fact that it was a many-hour-long dinner, and we ended late in the evening. He's just that kind of nice guy who goes above and beyond.
In sum, super fun outing to Zakopane, the gorgeous Tatra mountains, the relaxing thermal pools, and all of the wonderful scenery in between. But the best part was the world class guide, Jakub.
(There is more than one Jakub in the company - he is the young man pictured in this also glowing review https://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowUserReviews-g274772-d13230326-r708655934-VISITUS_Tours_Transfers-Krakow_Lesser_Poland_Province_Southern_Poland.html#UR708655934)

A full days tour of picturesque villages followed by a relaxing time at the springs. Jacob our tour guide was fantastic, very knowledgeable and nothing was too much trouble for him, even getting us to the thermal springs even though the road was closed for the final stage of the tour of Poland cycle race.Excellent value for money with breathtaking scenery.

Jacob was an excellent guide and we had a lovely day. He was very accommodating and flexible to our needs, providing snacks for the journey and he was happy to answer any questions we had. He also recommended and booked a restaurant and provided us with the opportunity to to try a polish cheese. Visiting a traditional Polish house was an interesting cultural experience, the views from the top of the Tatra mountains were beautiful. Also the hot springs were very relaxing. We had a great day and would recommend to anyone.

Our tour guide, Jacob, was a great guy. He was extremely personable, helpful and took care of everything we needed throughout the 10 or 11 hour day (a little longer than we expected).
The van was comfortable.
Chocholow was fascinating. The unique architecture was so interesting to see, and the museum was great.
Zakopane was just gorgeous! We got to visit an incredibly vibrant and inexpensive market, try delicious local farmers cheese, take a funicular ride to the top of a mountain and enjoy lunch there. It was a whirlwind, but it was absolutely breathtaking at the top of the mountain. The only downside was that we did not see any of the city itself.
The Thermal Pools were wonderful! So relaxing and comfortable. The place was huge, so you didn’t feel crowded by others.
This tour is highly recommended.
