    The Wieliczka Salt Mine is on UNESCO's 1st World List of Cultural and Natural Heritage due to its' importance in the history of mining. The mine is also notable for a long tradition of tourism. This famous breath-taking site has been visited over the centuries by Nicolaus Copernicus, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Alexander von Humboldt, Dimitri Mendeleev, Boleslaw Prus, Ignacy Paderewski, Pope John Paul II, and crowned heads of state, not to mention millions of people from all over the world. Included in the tour is a stunning "underground town" with lakes, passages, and the marvelous Saint Kinga Chapel. The whole tour lasts about 4-5 hours. You will spend around 2 hours in the Salt Mine.

The guy who took us to the salt mine was quite miserable really. Plus, he did not explain that we would be offered to look in a museum and to have lunch inside the mine whilst down there. We did not know if we had time to look in the museum or if he wanted us out after out the guided tour , he didn’t tell us a time to meet back, we didn’t ask as we presumed the tour guide would just take us around and then out again. The mines were nice to experience but there was a lot of tedious waking through tunnels between chambers with nothing to see. It did feel rushed by the guide. Had to wait ages to get out , half of our tour were waiting ages for us on the bus as they had left before us (I had been to the gift shop for a minute, good job I didn’t go in the museum). When we finally got out we didn’t know where we were, the drover didn’t explain either that we would have a long walk back to where he was parked.

I booked a non cancellable tour with my elderly parents.On the day of the tour my father felt unwell and we couldnt go on the tour. Although the tickets were non refundable, the company was kind enough to refund 40 percent of the value. They also took the trouble to ensure that I got the refund as there were some issues on the part of the Bank regarding the money transfer. I really appreciated this.Thanks!

Well worth going, everything was gone through at a heck of a pace, so I don’t know how some people combine it with another trip in the same day.
Don’t bother getting a coffee at the cafe under ground, you won’t have time to drink it.
Over all a really good trip, but be aware you do lots of steps up and down (mostly down as you get a lift back up), so you need to be able to do this. There is no turning around once you start. You can stand up and walk without bending all the way
round, so no pot holing which was something my wife was very worried about.
It is also a constant temperature all year round (15C) so you don’t need 2 coats in the winter or tee shirts in the summer

This is the most overrated tourist tour I have experienced in recent years. Called a "mine" it was more of a walk along wood-clad tunnels, occasional chambers, a few worker recreations and some carvings in salt.
The guides attempted to make it interesting with some anecdotes but even they were sometimes incorrect.
I felt like some cattle being herded along and i kept looking forward to the conclusion of this boooring tour.

Dear RemcoPerth, thank you for your opinion. The Salt Mine in Wieliczka is one of the largest tourist attractions in Poland, attracting around two million visitors every year. It is also included on the UNESCO World Heritage list. We are therefore sorry to hear that the trip to the mine did not meet your expectations. Could you please provide us the incorrect information that the guide in Wieliczka gave you on the trip? We hope that despite this situation, the rest of your stay in Kraków was pleasant and valuable. Best Regards, SeeKrakow Team

It is absolutely a place that must be seen. You can go there by yourself (by train, by bus), but the visit can be done only with a guide. There are a lot of steps to go down (about 400 only at the start), and about 3 km to walk, so be prepared. It is really interesting to listen to the information provided by the guide, along the tour. All what you see is beatiful, but when you'll get to the St. Kinga Chapel, you'll be amazed, because that one is a really stunning place, and the light show with the music is really breathtaking and worth the whole visit.

It would be a lot cheaper to get there by yourself (bus, taxi, uber) and buy an online ticket to the mines, this agency was not worth the money, we paid 180pln for the whole thing.

The bus was 10 minutes late picking us up, the people on the bus left us outside the entrance of the mines for approx 30munes, where as they said they would be 10min (in an cold end of october).

Lack of communication from Seekrakow would be the main issue here.

A very well organised trip extremely punctual with pick up and very well informed guides not a trip for the faint hearted and quite energetic as you have to go down hundreds of stairs well worth a trip to see the salt sculptures done by the miners very impressive and thank goodness they bring you back up in a lift a well spent couple of hours worth a trip

Tour provided excellent transport - transfer was easy, directions to collection point where provided at the time of booking, so we had plenty of time to plan.
Transfer was fairly swift, had to stop off to collect a few more tourists.

The tour guide we were provided with was fantastic. Very insightful, answered all our questions and was very amusing! Which added to the tour.

I would highly recommend going here (i was told by a few friends not to bother, but we are so glad we went!)

My Dad and I almost didn’t visit the Salt Mines during our trip to Krakow, but I’m glad we did!

The pick up point was right around the corner from our hotel and very easy to find. The minibus was on time and the drive to the mines was quick and comfortable. Drop off at the mines was straightforward, and it was a relief to have our tickets sorted by the guide as it was quite busy. We were able to skip queues and walk straight in with our group at the designated time.

The only downside to this trip was that, once inside the mines, the equipment used that enabled us to listen to our guide didn’t work properly. You needed to stay close to the guide for them to work, which wasn’t often possible in the large group we were placed in and the speed that our particular guide took us around. This was a shame as our guide was obviously very knowledgeable, and it meant we missed out on useful information.

The tour involved being on your feet for a long time and was quite physically demanding, so I would agree with other reviewers that it may not be suitable for everyone, but my Dad and I found it very interesting and are really glad we went!

Overall, I would recommend making the visit and would definitely recommend SeeKrakow Day Tours.
