This was a very interesting trip so much to take in what a talented people the salt miners were.
Excellent local organisation, and a great relief to escape from the Siberian weather above ground. Amazing sights to be seen all of which engendered a previously unfelt respect for men who after their working day toil found time to carve out such exceptional religous images. A lifetime highlight!
Much more to look at than underground tunnels, it was very interesting and the guide was excellent
A brilliant trip which far outshone our expectations. Must do when visiting Krakow.
Excellent tour, very informative and attentive guide. A trip well worth doing.

Well worth the visit. Thomas our guide in the salt mines was hugely entertaining and very informative. You will not believe the enormity and scale of the place before you visit. Only twenty minutes by coach from krakow.
An absolutely superb trip. It was a privilege to experience the Wieliczka Salt Mine: words simply cannot describe the beauty of what has been created here. Our tour guide was outstanding: we could not fault her knowledge, humour, professionalism and enthusiasm. An unforgettable half-day excursion.
A totally amazing experience. I didn't expect to see such elaborate large spaces decorated with chandeliers, a statue of the Pope and a framed picture of The Last Supper carved out of salt. Our tour guide's English was perfect and even had dry sense of humour. Would definitely recommend this tour.
One of the world wonders. The guide was great and the visit amazing.
I'm actually quite claustrophobic but the trip was do-able in that regards. There are a lot of enclosed spaces and high drops but the experience is worth over coming any of these issues. The cathedral and the various rooms give an excellent incite into the past.
The tour was excellent and very informative. The only thing I would change is that we should have been given time to visit the souvenier shops outside the mine.
Very enjoyable tour and well worth a visit. Comfortable coach journey and knowledgeable guide. Easily booked through Viatour.
Absolutely fantastic. The place is breathtaking. Our guide was very knowledgable.
All arrangements for the tour went well. The tour ran smoothly and our guide at the Salt Mine was interesting and knowledgeable. I would recommend this tour.
Interesting and enjoyable, but be warned this is a long walk and you need to be good on your feet!
The salt mine is incredible. I never imagined it would be so amazing. Seeing all those chambers, statues, the church and hall all made of salt so many metres underground is absolutely incredible. Our mine guide was very good and spoke excellent English. I would highly recommend this experience to everyone. Its not surprising that the mine is a World Heritage site.
Amazing place. Really enjoyed it. Would recommend this to everyone
An excellent tour, surprising, and visually fanastic. Well worth the money, great guide very informative. Wear sensible footwear for there is a few kilometers of walking and stairs to negotiate. The restoratation and building of the underground structures to accommodate cafes waiting rooms etc is excemplary.
a brilliant trip and very well organised.It is an amazing place and we went at a popular time so it was crowded but if you listen to the guide and dont wander off it flows as it should.limited time at gift shops was a criticism we read on this site before going and it was correct but the fault lies more with the shop staff, although friendly and helpful they were not quick thinking.we are so glad we booked and did not try to do it alone.
AMAZING PLACE. Tour very informative, wonderful sculptures. A must for all visitors to Krakow. Easy to book with Viator.
