The tour guide we had Joanna was very good and we understood her well. The place had hundreds of steps and lots of tunnels but it was amazing to see everything sparkling with salt. The St Klinga church dug by just 3 miners was incredible.

Well organised and enjoyable tour apart fro the claustrophobic lift back to the surface!

I really enjoyed this trip. It was different, well organised and the guide was terrific, she really made it come alive with her in depth knowledge and obvious pride in the vast amounts of beautiful sculptures, chandeliers and artefacts throughout the underground kingdom. There are a lot of steps and quite a lot of walking through the various levels of the mine but there is a surprising amount to see and the walk is well worth the effort. The only thing I did not like was the lift back to the surface. There were nine adults squashed into a very small area, really, it was only about four foot square, and then you are catapulted back to the top. I was seriously frightened and very relieved it only lasted less than a minute. If you have no claustrophobic tendencies you will be fine but if Id have known at the beginning I think I would have give the trip a miss which would have been a huge shame.

Tour was great. Meeting point was convenient and the transportation was timely. Local guide at the Mine was knowledgeable. Mine was very interesting. Ride back to town was quick and efficient. Warning: this is a walking tour! You walk down steps and paths to a depth of 135 meters. Elevator back up.

Our tour guide was very patient and friendly with our group especially some of the really annoying kids that were running around. She had a lot of interesting information, gave us time to take photos, and overall I loved this tour. It was worth the money!

The tour was excellent, the salt mines are amazing and well worth the time and money to see. The tour guide was very informative and knowledgeable. There is a fair amount of walking and stairs on this tour, it is not for the people with limited mobility.

Organised, on time for pick up from our hotel and informed us how the trip would be carried out. Lots of walking down steps, so good shoes needed! This should not put you off as the steps are manageable. Our expectation was exceeded as to the salt sculptures and the various caverns, in particular the cathedral at the base of the mine was magnificent. Short trip back to the top by a mine lift which was most welcomed!
