    Just wanted to flick you a quick email to say thank you to you and your team for making our trip so awesome. 

    You made my job of organising 10 people very easy and stress free and everything that was arranged was great.  The chalet was perfect for us, and your team of instructors were wonderful at catering for all our abilities. 

    Sorry I didn't get a chance to say hello to you.  I think every time you were around I was in the very back of the van. 

    Thanks again.  Might see you all next year!

    I hope you and the guys made it home safely. We all did, pretty shattered, but everyone said they had a really great trip!

    So the passport saga got worse as tony pointed out john only had 1 month on his passport and for NZ (where he was flying at midday Tuesday) needed 6months. He spent the entire night awake trying to sort it and somehow managed to get a renewal 8am-1030am at the passport office - rocking up the Heathrow 30 mins before his flight (and had to go hand luggage only!) haha typical! But at least he forgot his passport in the first place so he realised the date before he got all the way to the NZ border and had to fly back again! 

    We had a really fantastic time, and very impressed with everything you did for us, including being great company and very patient! Aside from the skiing, it was also great to have all of the drinks/dinners booked so we didn't have to trapes around looking for somewhere that could host us. You really did go above expectations! 

    The only small improvement, if it's helpful to know, would have been slightly more structured lesson times - as some people has a fair few hours and others just 30 mins at the end of the day. I think more people may have booked onto lessons/guides if they knew what to expect. Always tough in a mixed ability group I know!

    All in all a brilliant, well organised trip and much more personal than that you would get with the likes of a large corporate holiday company (but much easier than organising it all myself!). And all of the little touches like the cake that your and Ellie arranged, and shuttles to the slopes on day one to save time, really did make it (I must see if we can get a similar cake in Warsaw if you know the name - it was amazing!) 

    Happy to leave a formal review if that's helpful, and if you have Twitter or FB I'll post something there too.

    Hopefully we will have another opportunity to ski wth you guys in future! Back to work for me today sadly!

    This is a bit overdue, but we just wanted to say how satisfied we were with our Sunshine World Ski package!!! Looking back, I wish we would have booked the week long package, if we had more time. Zakopane is lovely! Logistically everything went smoothly, the Krakow-Zakopane, and Zakopane-Krakow transfers were both on time (even though we were late to our meeting spot going to Zakopane!) The Villa Karpinski was excellent, the staff there was so sweet and the food was wonderful. It was extremely convenient to be served both breakfast and dinner. It was also a short walk to Krupowki St, which was so great to be near to. Ski gear fit perfectly, and minus the bad weather on Monday, we had a great time skiing! We participated in the sleigh ride excursion, which was awesome! Our ski instructor Sergei, was also flexible with our lesson. After the first one was way to easy, we were able to switch to a different time, and learn a few more intermediate skills. Everything was prearranged, so it was very easy for us to just sit back and enjoy our vacation, and not have to work out any logistics. There were no hidden costs once we got to Zakopane, and everything went as planned. I do have a Trip Advisor account, and I would have just posted there, however there is no link to Sunshine World. However, we just wanted to let you know that we had a great time and would highly recommend Sunshine World to our other American friends, if they happen to be looking to Ski in Poland!

    Thanks again Greg,

    Having returned from Zakopane last week, I wanted to write to say thanks on behalf of everyone in our group for a fantastic holiday! All 19 of us really enjoyed our time in Poland and cannot praise you and your team highly enough. From the moment I first contacted you, to leaving last week, everything was brilliantly organised, everyone we met was friendly and professional, and eager to help in any way.  

    We were impressed by Bialka and are talking about a return next year. Are there options to stay nearer the resort to eliminate the transfer time, particularly during the busy half term?  

    Many thanks again for a fantastic time.   Kind Regards

"we first skied with Alan, a man who exudes an almost childlike enthusiasm for winter sports. Experienced we may have been, but he quickly taught us a few new tricks, some great warm-up exercises, and explained better than anyone before how best to ski on carvers."

Hi Al,

Just wanted to say on behalf of all the Pearces, Mckinlays and C-T’s thanks for an amazing skiing hols.

We were super impressed with the set up and all had a brilliant time.

The kids are most disappointed to be back at school rather than flying down the slopes with Joseph, Barney and Georgia so please also pass on our thanks to them for making it such fun for the little people.

Hope you have a great rest of the season and the glorious weather holds!

Best wishes,
Sarah Pearce

Good morning Alan,

Wanted to drop you a quick line to say a massive thank you.

The hotel is fantastic exactly what we were hoping for.

And as for Rob and Billy they are simply the best. I have achieved more in one day with Rob and his instruction than I achieved in France in a week, and that was meant to be a ski school! Rob is incredibly patient and his instruction is just the right place for me as a complete novice he has given me the confidence to truly enjoy the experience. Massive thank you for all your assistance in making this a truly wonderful experience, and it's only day two.

A very grateful,
Helen & Mike.

Hi Alan,

Just want to drop ye a message to thank you so much for a wonderful week. I haven't stopped talking about it to everyone and also recommending sunshine world to my friends and family. I have to compliment your staff, they were absolutely amazing, Rob was such a laugh on the slopes, great instructor and very to the point and his great humour had us in heaps of laughter. We really enjoyed our lessons each day with Rob as he always tried new tricks and techniques each time with us and always kept us laughing. It was Ejay's first time ever to ski and after 3 day's Rob had him skiing backwards it was so amazing. Billy and Peter were so welcoming, friendly and helpful throughout the week. You have a great team and such an amazing set up we were absolutely delighted with our stay. Thank you so much and we hope to see you's all again some day.

Kind Regards

Tara & Ejay

Hi Al,

We had a terrific time and were well looked after the whole holiday. Our family were complete beginners but by the end of the holiday, we had all progressed massively and my three children aged 15, 13 and 6yr were skiing down red runs. Millie and Barney were just fantastic instructors and were also great company for our family in the chalet! Thank you very much.

Hope you have a great new Year. I am already looking at flights to Krakow for next season...!

Best wishes, Wendy
