Should not be missed. Essential as part of your trip to Krakow.
Amazing. Good tour guide and route showed all aspects of the salt mines over he centuries. I would highly recommend. Lots of steps and walking. Would advise travellers no to do a very active activity for the rest of the day. People who had done Auschwitz in the morning looked shattered after the pm salt mine visit.

Beautiful place but very rude staff!
I would highly recommend coming here to anybody visiting Krakow providing they can stomach the walking required. The chambers are incredible and it’s very interesting. There are also plenty of reasonably priced souvenirs. The downside is that the staff are outrageously rude. Our tour guide was very snappy and if you asked a question she’d say “I’ve just told you that” and at the end of the tour the staff repeatedly refused to tell me how long we would be waiting for the lift. My partner and I both suffer from health issues which meant that the tour was quite hard for us and I politely asked how long we’d be waiting for the lift so that we could judge whether it was worth going to find a seat. Instead of giving me a rough timeframe or explaining why they couldn’t say, a woman repeatedly shouted at me “moment” which obviously wasn’t helpful!

Good day out
Was a lovely trip with lots of steps to walk down. The good news is that after a two/three hour tour you can get the lift back up. History of the place is amazing as are the sculptures. Our guide Isabella was very informative and had a good sense of humour.

Interesting place, the guides need to be better
Oct. 2021 • Couples
The tour operator were great, knew exactly where and when we had to be for pick up and collection. The driver and shared transport were spot on collecting and dropping off at our hotel, highly recommend the service.

As for the tour, it was interesting but feel like I missed a lot. Basically we set off in a group of 30 and unless you tailgated the guide you missed pretty much everything that was said. It was worth a visit, interesting but not amazing due to the guide.

Very good tour operator.
A very good service. Driver picked us up on time from outside our hotel. He was friendly, chatty and helpful. He also spoke perfect English.
The saltmines tour was very good, however once inside the female guide, I felt was slightly rushed, but still very good. Would definitely recommend and would go again.

Interesting, unique place
Jun. 2021 • Friends
The mines were incredibly interesting. Amazing what was built down there. However, we missed out on most of the learning and explanations because our guide’s accent was so strong he was not understandable. I don’t want to seem like an ugly tourist, and have taken many tours with guides who are not fluent in English and loved them, but this tour was basically unguided… and despite the fact that tours were capped at 15 people, we had 32, which didn’t help the situation.

I still recommend this very unique tour, just hope you get a different tour guide.

Dear, Thank you very much for your review. We always try to do our best and provide the best service possible. The guide is an employee from the Mine directly, so sometimes we do not have any power which guide will be hosting our tour. Thank you once again for your opinion and hope you had a great time in Krakow. Best regards, Zuzanna Platek Head of Customer Service

From pick to the actual salt mine was really good. it was raining and as the driver knew we would be stood outside for about 20 minutes in the rain he stopped off and brought us an umbrella.

the tour guide was really informative. she did sometimes start her talk before the whole group had arrived at the spot.

the salt mines are definitely something I would recommend and also bookjngvthroufh this provider.

Well worth a visit
Aug. 2020 • Friends
Really worth a visit. The salt mine guided tour was great, picked up from a convenient location , really comfortable journey and our driver pointed out places of interest on route. The driver guided us to the location at the salt mine for the start of the English language tour and gave us the relevant information needed. The salt mine is amazing and the grounds surrounding the mine are beautiful. Rejoined the driver at the end of the tour in the agreed location for a pleasant journey back to the hotel.
