Tour to Salt Mines

Does anybody know of a tour operater in Rzeszow that runs trips to the salt mines at Weiliczka?Have found plenty from Krakow but none from Rzeszow...for about 10+ people.

Many Thanks

I suspect you'll have to organise a bespoke trip with a local transport company, as Rzeszow is at least 3hrs drive from Krakow so not an obvious place to start trips to an attraction in Krakow. The journey by road can also be more if there are problems on the main East-West road, which is a single carriageway for most of the way and heavily trafficed.

An alternative could be to catch the train to Krakow (approx 2.5hrs) and organise for a tour company to pick you all up from the train station.

If you're going to Krakow anyway, forget about a day trip to Wieliczka (it's good, but not worth spending 6hrs+ in a bus/train just to get there and back) and go to Zamosc, with its amazing Renaissance architecture, or visit the palace at Lancut - the last owner of which loaded the most valuable items from his vast art collection onto 11 railway carriages and fled to Lichtenstein before the Russian army invaded in 1944.
