Fab day!
, Mar 2020
Amazing day, So much history! Tour guide was fab and really knew her stuff. Highly recommend this! Be prepared for the 400 steps down under but thankfully there is a lift at the end!
Must do

This tour was excellent! So much history and our guide was so funny ! Never a dull moment with this man, unfortunately I cannot remember this mans name (shame on me !) Beware to bring comfortable walking shoes as you will get your steps in during this tour !
Worth visiting

Interesting, informative and plenty of steps - all downward. A good place for adults and children. Recommend.

Hi Neal, Thank you for the feedback and review! I am sure that this recommendation will be useful for our future tourists that wish to visit Wieliczka Salt Mines
Not worth 1/2 a day out of your vacation

We had heard great things about the Salt Mines and were excited for the tour. However, when we arrived our tour group size was 40 people and the tour guide's microphone didn't work further than 6m. With such a large group it was impossible to stay within the 6m range the entire time so the tour guide kept cutting in and out. Also, there was another tour group right behind us and the tour guide was speaking very loud. It made it difficult to concentrate on our tour guide and to not feel rushed. Overall, we walked away thinking meh that was okay. Certain parts of the mine were pretty but everything else blended together - it was one chamber after another. We also walked away not learning a ton about the mine itself. There was little history shared about the mine itself - the content of the tour could be revamped significantly. Wouldn't recommend wasting half a day here when your time is limited in Krakow.

Dear Guest, thank you very much for your feedback. We are very sorry to hear that you were not satisfied with this tour due to low quality of the guide's microphone and headphones, we will share it further to the Salt Mines Office so they can improve this in future. Kind regards,
Nice trip lots of walking

We went without my wife because her knees are bad and there is a lot of walking. Our English guide was speaking broken English. We could understand but not many stories about the mines.
Fun trip!

You will never be able to experience artwork like this in this setting. A must visit when you are in Krakow!
Fantastic Tour

An amazing informative tour. Highly recommend it. Lots of stairs but luckily all down and a lift back up.
Good tour

Enjoyed tour, tour guide amazing. Not happy with having 30 mins break as soon as arrived at Salt Mine destination, it is freezing and nowhere warm to wait?! Wish we could've gotten straight on with tour upon arrival

Dear Guest, thank you very much for your feedback. We are very sorry that you had to wait before start of the tour, some time it is very hard to coordinate the time of the arrival with entrance to The Salt Mine. Road traffic in Kraków is very unpredictible therefore we always organize the transport with time safety to avoid situations when the bus is delayed. We will put our effort to improve that in future. We are also very glad that you enjoyed your visit to The Salt Mine. Kind regards,
Would not recommend this tour

Was expected to contact someone whilst in a foreign country to get the exact details of this tour rather than it being confirmed to me. Missed the pick up by 5 minutes and almost spoiled part of our trip as we had a schedule of activities. Ended up having to make our own way to the mines and pay again for the tour! Not impressed at all, never had a set up like this before.

Hreat trip really interesting. Berta our guide really knew her stuff .lost hers voice over the ear piece a few times as she went out of range. Carvings were amazing. Hard to believe that the main hall was carved by 2 guys in their spare time.....over 67 years. Brlliant
