Really interetsing
, May 2022
We were picked up as advised an arrived at the salt mines after about half an hour. We had booked the trip for 12.30 and was surprised that when we arrived our entry ticket was for 2.00 so we had to have a drink while we waited. The mines are great and the guide was informative. Wasn't as cold in there as I had expected and you do get chance for a drink/toilet break half way through. You can visit the museum as part of the trip however you need to be aware that if you decide not to visit it you have to wait at the pickup point until everyone in your party returns.
Brilliant experience, needs to start faster

The salt mine was fascinating, Agnieskwa was a great and engaging tour guide. Too much waiting around before the tour started though, 25 minutes standing around when we arrived plus the bus driver wasnt exactly friendly. Apart from that, brilliant tour.
Great half day trip

Just the beaut of the way the mines are preserved.Great insite of the way people lived.The chandeliers are beautiful the rooms are lovely.
Very interesting but exhousting
, Apr 2022
The history of the mines was very interesting, in particular,the way the technology has evolved over the centuries. The statues and carved figures are amazing and the chapels are beautiful. The guide was very informative but she could have given us a little more time to take photographs, especially when you consider that some of us older visitors had to cope with amount of walking and the 800 steps down to the lower levels. The advertising should make it much clearer the level of fitness required to undertake the tour
Breath taking

Fantastic architecture, unbelievable sculptures. Well designed tour. The added interactive experiences of the presentations added to the reality of the work in the mines, very well presented
Amazing tour. A must visit

The tour was ok but we was in a very large group we could not hear the tour guide. People were fighting to be at the front all day. By the time we go into the rooms the displays had finished. Would recommend but in a smaller group.
