About
The mine, built in the 13th century, produced table salt continuously until 2007, as one of the world's oldest salt mines still in operation.  The mine's attractions include dozens of statues, three chapels and an entire cathedral that has been carved out of the rock salt by the miners. The Wieliczka mine is often referred to as "the Underground Salt Cathedral of Poland." In 1978 it was placed on the original UNESCO list of the World Heritage Sites.Today, the “Wieliczka” Salt Mine combines many centuries of tradition and modernity, the history of several hundred years and an underground metropolis with extensive infrastructure.

Fantastic visit for adults and older children. Worth going.

We were taken by minibus to the Salt mine. The driver was very pleasant and efficient. His driving was skilful and safe. We reached the salt mine with a little time to explore before our booked appointment with the mine guide. The descent into the depths of the earth was on wooden steps, more than we had realised! Safe footwear is a must! The guide was extremely knowledgeable and gave us an insight into the lives of the miners, the history of the salt mine and introduced us to the amazing salt sculptures created within the mine. One highlight was when tourists started singing around one of the religious statues in the chapel. Wonderful. It was hard to get our heads round the fact that the ceiling, walls and floor had been carved from and were all made of salt! The journey back up to the surface was in the mines lifts.

Salt mine
You need to be reasonably fit for this tour as it involves a fair bit of stairs and walking but it is a most impressive and enjoyable tour, our guide was very knowledgeable and humorous and the whole trip including being picked up from our apartment was on time and took 3.5 hrs we shared our taxi with two other couples and on the way back from the mine you could get dropped of where you wanted or back at your apartment or hotel. I would recommend this trip

We researched lots of firms on the internet for tours whilst in Krakow and for airport transfers. There are lots to choose from and you do have to take a leap of faith as most firms get good reviews.
We plumped for Krakow Discovery for a private tour to the Salt Mines and airport transfers. They couldn’t accommodate us for Auschwitz as they were fully booked.
Email comms before travel were really clear from Slawek containing precise details regarding meeting etc.
Our driver on all three trips was Tomasz. What a guy!
He was waiting for us in the arrivals area as promised and on the way into town he gave us loads of tips as to which restaurants to use, the best ice cream shops, places to visit
etc.... All recommendations were spot on.
He was really punctual picking us up for our trip to the Salt Mines and again gave us a good commentary. Tomasz arranged all the tickets for us and made sure we were in the right place for our tour. He was waiting for us again when we surfaced. His car is brand new and very comfortable.
The costs for their services are very reasonable but it their service that stands out. I think that the company is owned by Slawek - I hope he realises what a great person he has working for him in Tomasz!
Highly recommend using this company if you are visiting Krakow.

This is just a tourist attraction now as the salt seam is worked out. However, what a spectacle. The guide was excellent, the route taken very clever. Large chambers, lakes, a chapel and scuptures aplenty. A real visit with a difference, including a very rapid accent to the surfact because one of the large tourist lifts was out of action so we went up in a miners' lift. No words can describe this experience but it was a wonderful shock to the system. All good stuff.

So down the many steps to the Salt mines. Well worth it, but be warned its 64 degrees down there so do not go wrapped up for out door temperatures. Its beautiful down in the mines, with wooden and salt chandeliers and beautiful salt carvings. A must do trip. The lift is a bit claustrophobic but the journey up last seconds.
