Hike in the Tatras exceeded expectations! My friends and I were staying in Zakopane, PL and decided to book a tour with Erik as we really wanted to see a European brown bear in the wild! Erik was so helpful, especially when booking the trip. He gave great advice, was quick to respond and the whole booking experience was seamless. We drove over the border into Slovakia the morning of our booked tour and met Erik and the rest of our group who were all lovely. After a hefty hike in during darkness, we were rewarded with a glorious sunrise and incredible panoramic views of the beautiful mountain range and valley that we were walking through. Once the sun was up, our gaze headed to the top mountain meadows on the search for a bear. Unbelievably on our walk back through the valley one of our guides spotted a very large brown bear high up in a meadow, minding his own business and what looked like, feasting on berries. It was incredible!! Erik was knowledgable, professional, helpful and I would highly recommend booking a trip with him. We will certainly be booking again in the future! Lily, Harry & Steven.
