www.discoverzakopane.com 20th anniversary


This year, my Discover Zakopane com website turns 20. I created it myself, thanks to a friend who explained the basics of html to me. Since it was publicized in 2003, the website has been changed many times, but I still maintain it myself, using the same html editor for 20 years. Through Discover Zakopane com, I used to organize integration events, airport transfers, ski touring trips, ski courses and various other services. On the occasion of this impressive (for the website) anniversary, I decided to publish here some of the nice testimonials and references I received from my clients. They all gave me a lot of joy and it was very nice to read them again, remembering the people from whom I received them, Barbara

Dear Barbara, Thank you so very much for your help with the sleigh ride. We had a totally amazing time and it will be unforgettable .The organisation was superb and so many personal touches. Your father introduced himself so well we had an unforgettable experience and when Jurek picked us up the small souvenir of a sleigh bell was a lovely touch. I will certainly recommend your services and I will give an excellent review on Tripadvisor, Thank you for making our trip so memorable regards Angela

Barbara! We enjoyed a lot our sleigh ride in Chocholowska. I would like to thank the attention that you had with us. I have no doubt I'd repeat with you again (and with the same weather!!!!). The driver of the sleigh ride was very friendly too. I hope to repeat next year if we can visit Zakopane again!!! Thank you very much!!! Dani

Dear Barbara, Thank you so much for your wonderful ski instruction during our recent trip to Zakopane. We enjoyed meeting both you and your Dad. We thank you for your patience and your good humour. We had a memorable holiday and look forward to going back next year. Don't forget to send me the link for an apartment in Zakopane. We might go back in the summer for a few days. All the best and thanks so much again. Johanna, Ciaran, Olga and Caolan

Dear Barbara, Thank you very much for the great organisation of the sleigh ride today. We had a lot of fun and it was an amazing experience. Big thanks also to your dad for dropping us off at Gubalowka. Thank you again, Maria

Dobry wieczór Barbara! We really had three great days with you as our ski teacher. I can't imagine anyone better suited for the purpose. You helped us to improve from zero to red slope in two days. That's impressive! Today we stayed until four... I will gladly recommend friends to go to Zakopane and if they need a ski teacher I will of course invite them to contact you. And we do hope to come back here again ourselves. Best wishes, Mi

Barbara, Thank you so much for the ski lessons , we thoroughly enjoyed the trip and were back in Krakow early enough to get some sights in. Zakopane is so beautiful and we had a great weekend. Thank you for arranging the transfers and everything.Regards, Caroline & Declan

Bonjour, Merci à vous et votre papa, ainsi qu'à notre cocher pour ce super moment dont nous avons pleinement profité sous ce magnifique soleil. Nous avions fait une promenade l'année dernière avec les torches, c'était original, mais nous n'avions pu voir le paysage, ce qui nous avait manqué. Nous sommes donc très heureuses de la découverte que vous nous avez proposé. Je vous joins quelques photos et ne manquerai pas de mettre un avis très favorable sur internet. Encore merci pour avoir ramené le gant que ma maman avait oublié dans la voiture. A une autre fois j'espère. Estelle

We wanted to thank you for an incredible experience, what a fabulous way to spend Christmas Eve, it could not gave been more perfect! Thanks again Barbara and Merry Christmas. Regards, Stephen and Kim

Thank you so much for the photos and the great ski lesson! We enjoyed it so much! We went skiing yesterday and we have improved a lot thanks to your ski lesson :) :) Regards. Leigh / from the Republic of South Africa

Barbara, I did not realise that we would not see you after Saturday morning...... so I apologise that we did not get to thank you (and your father) so very much for the amazing support you gave us during our trip. We had the most fantastic holiday and really appreciate the work that you had put in to make sure it all went smoothly. On top of the great ski arrangements and pick ups etc, the help you gave us while we were there is very much appreciated. The restaurant you recommended was just what we wanted, fantastic.
Going for the sleigh ride early made all the difference - we could see how crowded it would get later, but what an amazing experience!
We are planning to come back next February, and the only thing we would change is our accommodation.... Oh and we plan to learn some Polish!
I'd love your help, as we'd like to book early to know we'll have the right place, but let me know when you have some time to help! Thank you Georgia (UK)

Hi Barbara,thank you for the video and photographs, we had a wonderful time and are delighted that we were able to do some basic skiing, we are looking for flights for next year to come back and improve a little bit,the instruction that we received from you both was amazing. Thank you Brian and Cathy (UK)

Dear Barbara, Thanks for your help, we were very lucky to have you as an instructor. We would also like to send many thanks to your father who came up just in time with a very precious piece of advice and showed us a new exercise. Best wishes from Moscow, Elena and Alex

Hi Barbara, just wanted to thank you for a wonderful sleigh ride. And special thanks to your Dad for collecting us. He is a lovely man. We enjoyed his company. Also could you pass on our thanks to our sleigh driver - I didn’t get his name, but I think he is the Boss / Owner. He made us laugh and he was lovely also. As this is part of our Honeymoon - it was so romantic. We will definitely do it again on our next trip to Zakopane. Thank you, Reg and Sarah

Hi Barbara, I just wanted to say thank you for a wonderful time in Zakopane, we loved every minute of it. I would like it very much if you could teach us next year when we come back. Gail wants to say thank you for giving her some confidence and ske's looking forward to getting some more snow next year... Thank you, Ian, Gail & Ashley

Hi Barbara, We really enjoyed our stay in Zakopane. Thank you so much for organizing everything for us, we couldn’t have asked for more everything was perfect. Rest assured that I will recommend you to any of my friends who might be planning on visiting Zakopane, regards Jonathan (Malta)

Thank you for organizing a great outing! Everything was perfect — from pickup to drop off. Couldn’t have asked for better weather. Very nice and accommodating staff making my brother and I feel at home. I will forward you some photos once I download them. I will be sure to leave positive/recommending feedback throughout the web.

Hi Auntie Basia, We absolutely loved snowboarding in Zakopane and am so happy that we booked with Altius! Our instructor took us to the shorter lift and it was hard getting off but we hope to practise more in Slovakia. Thank you for all your help and support. You have been amazing and your father was lovely to chat to. Also, you'll be happy to know Verity enjoyed your link about Polish soup!!! She'll get her mum to cook her some when she's back in Australia. Have a great winter, Dara and Vee (Australia)

Hello Barbara I would just like to take time to thank you for arranging our transfers and snowboard lessons last week. Everything ran very smoothly and we were very impressed with the amount of snow. Nosal ski school were lovely and very accommodating when I changed from snowboarding to skiing which I found much more enjoyable. We enjoyed Zakopane so much that we hope to return again next year and visit some different slopes in the region. Once again thank you for your help. Kind Regards JO
