Spectacular but overcrowded.

We enjoyed the spectacular salt mines trip but had paid for a visit with a group of no more than twenty people. However the groups were not segregated properly and we were placed in a group numbering more than 50 people. This was not acceptable. The mines themselves were nonetheless worth the visit.

Not recommended - and lousy for photographers
DaveConroy

Not far from Kraków. It's an OK trip but TBH too long and too dull. Would recommend the early trip so you avoid heavy traffic on the way back. The guide was just long winded and no spontaneity - like a million facts one after the other and spoken very quickly all through the whole trip. Not really my thing. At the end you think it's the exit as you go through a gate thing that says exit. But you then have many tunnels further and it's quite quite exhausting not knowing where you're going and when the lift up will appear. Finally, you reach the lift. You're then finally let out into a completely different area to where you entered and you have to find your driver not knowing where you are on the site - then it's another random long distance walk with no signage. Just fill in details for your guests please. Don't just treat us like cash cows on a conveyor belt. Not recommended. Some of the carvings are good! I'm an accomplished photographer but the tour is so whistle stop and the place so busy with other groups, and the light so poor, that the experience is a mess.

Travelled alone as husband is claustrophobic and decided he could not go in the lift. Well worth the money. Kept updated on pick up times. Driver was brilliant and pointed out places of interest on the way to the mine. The mine guide was very informative and amusing at times. Personally I thought the lift was brilliant but might not be quite so much fun when busy and crowded

Well worth a visit and only a 25 minute drive from Krakow. Guide in the salt mines was very knowledgeable. You must be able to walk down steps (over 800). The salt mines were mind blowing especially the church.

Great experience although there are over 800 stairs to go down so not for the infirm! Very interesting and beautiful, great tour guide, my only complaint is the safety of the lift back to the ground, you are packed like sardines and the door would not even open when we got to the top as there were so many people squashed in!! I dread to think what would happen if it broke down!

This tour was great, our pick up time was confirmed with a time 24 hours before and the driver was not late. It took about 40 minutes to get there and from start to finish it was great with enough time to break before it started and during. The tour guide spoke great English and was very knowledgeable. The only downside was that we felt rushed at the end through the restaurant and shop. Apart from that I’d still recommend this tour

The salt mines are only around half an hour from Krakow so not too far. The tour is fabulous and a great experience. Worth the money to see something different. Only missed out on a 5 star review as the driver of our minibus for pulled over by the police and wasn’t permitted to continue driving.... not great from a tour company. Viator did explain that the driver was subcontracted but to be honest, better checks are maybe necessary! We got the public tram back to town as couldn’t wait an hour for a replacement driver to turn up!

Viator transport & salt mine guided tour.

Viator transport arrived on time & it was a great service from start to finish, same as many other times we have used Viator. The salt mine guided tour was wonderful. Plenty of stairs and plenty of walking so wear your comfy walking shoes. Highly recommended if you are interested in history as there is so much to learn.

A very nice trip to go to and a great sight for the city of Krakow. Along with All the amazing things you can see in the Saltmine, you learn about the history behind it. The excursion was very well organized. We were picked up from our hotel on time, and our driver explained us about our visit. Our guide was also very nice and informative. Definitely worth the visit and the trip is highly recommended!

The mine is absolutely stunning. I feel for all the thousands of workers who worked there as well as all the scultptors. Excellent trip and very informed guide.
