We have booked private transport from the airport in Krakow to the Hotel in Zakopane (return) and it was all very professionally arranged. There were 4 of us - all with big cases and we had 7 seater with personal panel for air con in the back. The gentelman who picked us up was already waiting for us with our name on display, helpped us with cases and even allowed for a cigarette brake on the way. He kept us updated all the time when there were any troubles on the road and when there was possibility of alternative routes that would take us around any traffic we were kept informed (probably so we don't think that they try to kidnap us:)). On our way back different gentelman arrived in the same car allowing plenty of time to pack our cases. We were dropped off to the airport with plenty of time before our flight which allowed us to check in and have something to eat before setting off home. When it came to paying we didnt have to pay any money upfront while booking. We paid the driver when he dropped us of to the hotel for that part of the journey + little deposit for the way back. Originally, we though the deposit was to secure the journey back but as we found out no other cab firm could match the price anyway. I would definitely recommend the Altius Travel agency and I would not hesitate to book with them again. They are very professional and friendly company and everything can be arranged via e-mail. They also offer other services and it is all displayed on their web page: I would definitely try them if i were going back to Zakopane.

Brilliant service- Thank you Barbara for all your help! :)

Dzien dobry, pisze do Pani w zwiazku z przewozem jaki pani dla nas zorganizowala na czas naszego przyjazdu i wyjazdu do Zakopanego. Musze pani serdecznie podziekowac i pogratulowac tak wspanialego serwisu. Przesympatyczny pan ktory odbieral nas na lotnisku w Krakowie czekal na nas juz w hali przylotow i nie musielismy go nigdzie szukac. Pomogl nam on z walizkami i poczekal na wszystkich spragnionych papierosa palaczy z usmiechem. Po drodze nie mial nic przeciwko przystankowi na siusiu i informowal nas o kazdym problemie na drodze/objezdzie tak ze nie musielismy sie martwic, ze wywozi nas gdzies na manowce:). Rowniez samochod ktorym zostalismy odebrani byl super! Czysciutko, duzo miejsca i do tego wlasna kontrola klimatyzacji - czego chciec wiecej?!?!!!:) W drodze powrotnej samochod zjawil sie kilka minut wczesniej co pozwolilo nam spokojnie zapakowac walizki, wypalic ostatniego papieroska i dojechac na lotnisko na czas bez nerwow i stresu. W przyszlosci na pewno znowu skorzystamy z panstwa uslug i z pewnoscia polecimy panstwa uslugi naszym znajomym. Jeszcze raz bardzo dziekuje za pomoc w organizacji i za wspaniala realizacje zlecenie.

Pozdrawiam serdecznie. Nina Roche

Hi Kasia, Just want to say thank you for the airport transfer you arranged for me and my family. First driver was very helpful when we arrived at destination to find a locked door and a sign in Polish, the driver asked me for booking details and made a phone call to speak to the apartment manager. We were very grateful he got us into apartment. Both drivers were helpful with all our luggage and vehicles supplied were first class, I will definitely recommend to anyone travelling to Krakow.
