Very good experience, mines well worth the visit, well organised
Most amazing place ever and all staff very nice and great guides
This tour is totally worth doing. However, the tour group was a few persons too large, so we felt hurried and did not have time to take in the sights and sounds. This mine is 700 years old, therefore has lots of history. It is fascinating, so it would have been great to have time to stroll through. We must stress that this is beyond the control of the tour operator as the salt mine tours are run by the mine organisation.
It was a very nice tour, the only thing which was bad was that we wanted to have some more time to go around in the cathederel. That place was fantastic. We also wanted to have more time after the tour to shopping.
Fantastic...I had read previous reviews re the steps ! and yes there are many in fact 838 if I remember correctly but well worth it when you see the sights of each of the three sections....it is a wonderful trip and of course the best bit is the salt cathedral with the beautiful sculpture of the alter...in fact this whole room is fantastic...you do not have to walk back up the steps to exit the mine but instead use a lift which carries 9 people at a time....thankfully this only takes 45 seconds to reach the surface and is better than having to walk up all those steps but I was thankful when we reached the top....this shouldn't put you off though it is well worth the visit
It was an excellent tour and enjoyed the history told by the guide.
