A truly great guide Marcel Kubinsky, helpful and patient, he was prepared for different situations throughout the climb. Nice interlocutor, we spent the whole time talking about mountains, life at the mountains, mountaineering etc. We are happy about this climb.

The hike was much more difficult than I was prepared for but it was worth every view! Marcel is a very experienced guide and very patient, and has a lot of knowledge about the Tatras mountains and surrounding regions. I would recommend Marcel to anyone who is looking for a guided trek or tour in the Tatras / Carpathian ranges, either in Poland or Slovakia :) P.S. Hiking poles are good to have while descending from Rysy peak. Thank you very much!
