Amazing to see so far underground, and so much.
Be aware that ther are many steps down and a lot of walking.
Well worth it
This was my second time on this same tour.I was just as amazed the second time as the first time.This is a must do tour.
Fascinating and well worth while but be aware there are LOTS of steps and LOTS of walking!
Great experience. No photos can ever show the reality. Stepping down through the centuries gave a very good understanding of the workings. Tour guide provided by the mine was very professional, also able to answer individual questions. Do it!
Fantastic tour, one of our holiday highlights. The deeper you go the better it gets.
Fantastic tour. Great guide. Would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Krakow.
We enjoyed it! You start by walking down lots of steps...but came back up with an elevator. Great guide!
Great tour! The Salt Mines are absolutely magical, and our guide was funny, charming and very well informed.
Loved the salt mine,we had an excellent guide who knew everything there was to know about the mine,plus a good sense of humour.A definate must if you travel to Krakow
Beautiful and worth the stairs down! Lots of walking involved. Amazing a whole underground city.
The tour itself was excellent and would recommend the visit to anyone.
The pick up and waiting times to get there however , were very tedious 8.55 pick up then transfer to bigger bus in Crakow, which was another 45 min wait. 2 hours before arrival at mine!!
Well worth the visit. A most unbelievable tour 135 meters underground. Stunning sculptures and caverns
Collected by air conditioned coach, journey time approx 25 mins. Tour provider was friendly, organised and informative. Handed over to Salt Mines tour guide, queued to enter for approx 15 mins. Tour lasts 2h 10 mins, 4km of walking with two short 5 min breaks. The scale and facilities of the Salt Mine is impressive. Tour information about the statues carved, the mining techniques, the historical origins of the mine and the function of the rooms visited. I have never visited anywhere like it, I am recommending it to anyone I know planning to visit Krakow.
An interesting, unusual and very well organised trip. The salt mines are very impressive and well worth a visit although I would hesitate to recommend it to older visitors or those whose mobility is impaired as our tour guide marched us round at a fair pace and we covered quite a distance in the two and a half hour tour. Otherwise I would fully recommend a visit and we found viator to be very good value for money
Fascinating tour, made all the more enjoyable by the excellent local guide speaking fluent English. Hard to believe that the mining had been going on for so long.
This was a fascinating trip. St Kinga's cathedral is amazing. Our guide was very informative.
This was a great trip! The tour guides were excellent and the mines were incredible! A MUST see in Krakow!! !
