PRIVATE TOUR: Definitely worth paying some extra for a Private tour with Personal Tour Guide. (Request information) We surpassed queues and groups of tourists and descended quite fast the 378 wooden steps (64m) down to level 3 at 135m.

Totally amazing experience! Incredible salt mine underground which is decorated by miners themselves and revails a lot of history. Guide was amazing and told us a lot of very interesting stories about the mine and Poland in general. Don't remember the price (it was quite expencive) but definitelly worth it!

this is a lovely attraction and I would highly recommend it. We went on the same day as we went to Auschwitz. I would not recommend doing that! Especially if you are relying on public transport or driving yourself. We had hired a driver for the day and pre booked all our tickets. It was still a push to get... More

Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. This was a fascinating place and really well organised for visits. If you are visiting Kraków, and have 3+ hours to spare, I would strongly recommend it!

We recently visited the wieliczka salt mine on a day trip from our stay in Krakow. We had hired a driver for the day and first went to Auchwitz. After a very solemn , memorable morning, we went to the salt mine on our trip back. We very much enjoyed it. First you take a very small elevator down into... More

First of all this is a 3 hour long trip so be prepared. I also recommend to take own headphones because the ones provided aren't the best. The experience is extraordinary and there is also miners route trip for more adventurous people.

It doesn't matter what time of day or time of year that the salt mine is visited. The experience will be the same, and that experience would be a great one. The tour guides of the salt mine are very friendly, speak perfect English and are happy to answer questions throughout any time of the tour. They give an in... More

That female tour guide of salt mine explained unclearly, her English tones were all the same from the begining to the end that made me fall asleep! It's NOT worth 79 PLN!

The salt mines are an amasing place and great visit for you g and old. It is only 12 km from Krakaw and excellenty suited for a day trip from there. The tour in the mines takes almost 3 hours but is never bouring and the mine itself is an amasing place.

This is a must see attraction if visiting Krakow. It is vast and the tour, 2-3 hours covers barely 1% of it! The caverns are vast and include restaurants, a concert hall, wedding venue as well as shops and a lot of information. My favourite item was the chandeliers made of salt followed by the beautiful polished floors - also... More
