Price structure: Here at CKAC, we know how hard it can be to save money for that dream adventure, so that’s why we offer a deposit scheme on most of our trips. The idea is that you can pay an initial deposit for your chosen event or trip, in order to reserve your spot, but you are still left with the remainder of the payment, to pay at your own convenience, allowing you more time to save.
Once the deposit of £100 + PayPal fees have been paid, and you are ready to pay the remainder of your payment, simply visit our website, using the link: http://katsadventures.com/events/event/hiking-in-tatra-mountains-and-sightseeing-in-krakow/, and choose the ‘remainder’ option from the drop-down list, in order to make the payment. Simple.
Please be aware that the remainder should be paid no later than a month before your trip and can only be made in one full payment. The remainder payment will complete your trip or event payment and will secure your place.
We will be visiting the former capital of Poland – Krakow. It is one of the oldest cities and the most beautiful one. The Old Town, together with the Wawel Hill and the Kazimierz district, are on the UNESCO World Heritage List. The Medieval urban layout of the Old Town has not changed for centuries. We will enjoy a guided tour of the old town as well as an evening expedition to the old Jewish quarter where we will soak its magical atmosphere over a traditional glass of beer. You will also have a chance to party there (at Kazimierz) on Saturday night where there are all the best bars in town, all walking distance from the hostel.
