Fab service
The driver called to confirm our pick up an hour before and promptly picked us up at the time arranged from our hotel. The drive was smooth, no erratic driving as you often get and the trip itself was fantastic. We had a guided tour around the mine with plenty of time to see the sights, take pictures, ask questions and finish the shops. We were then escorted back to the transport and driven back to our hotel. Couldn't fault the service and much cheaper than booking through our hotel reception. Would use again!

Although the salt mines were very beautiful- our listening devices and ear pieces were poor quality and we struggled to hear what the guide was saying she was muttering to her self and deep breathing constantly - we were in a group of 40 and felt rushed through the areas that it would have been nice to spend a little time taking photos like the grand hall
There was a lack of information boards to read if you hadn’t heard the guides commentary.

Krakow salt mine tour
Jan 2020 • Couples
Really interesting tour with some great salt rock carvings. Now very tourist friendly and you dont feel like youre 130m deep. It is warm though at a constant 16 degrees so dont wear a heavy coat. Well worth the money and you need to be pretty fit as its a LOT of stairs to go down into the mine and the lift back up holds 9 and should be ideally for 5! A bit claustrophobic. The main hall at the bottom is simply breathtaking

Fabulous skilled artisans on display!!
Sep 2019
Not very far Krakow, we went on this 4hr trip - highly recommend this if you appreciate skilled workmanship. The preservation of the works of art carved out in blocks of Salt in the Salt Mine is breathtaking! 800 steps down to 135mtrs, you don't feel it - as it well done with a lot of stops and talks from the guides who are excellent!

Mismanagement and Missing Information
Aug 2019
Worst experience ever. The salt mine itself is amazing but the way the whole tour was managed, it was a disaster.

First, We were supposed to get picked up from hotel and when I called in the morning to confirm it, it was said to me that it's not possible to do it, why I don't know. However, It is clearly mentioned in my ticket that price includes hotel pick up!

Secondly, when we reached the pick up point and waited for our tour guide, no one was there for at least 15 minutes. Then a guy came in picked us up and dropped us in another location which is just 5 min away and then again waiting!! Another bus came in and then finally we were picked up again. Mind you around this time the tour has already started 1 hour after the actual time.

Thirdly, We were dropped off in the entrance of Salt mine without any guide or without any proper instruction. The driver was no where to be seen. we were almost 20 people wondering around the entrance for another half an hour and asking salt mine employees about where should we go? Then they told us to wait in line and exchange the online ticket, which was definitely a wrong information but well we had no guide so why to tell us or guide us? It took us 45 min to sort this mess out.

Fourthly, At the beginning of the tour a guide from your company told us to wait at a certain point, after the tour ended the we waited there for 30 min, no one came to pick us up. Then when we called your office it was told that the driver is waiting for us in the parking. This took another 30-45 min. and of course the driver did not drop us hotel, he simply said he is not going there so we were dropped off 20 min walking distance away from our place.

I missed my flight due to this.

Missing information on tours .
Jul 2019 • Friends
Disgusting treatment of two pensioners within our party. Both paid 170 zl each to travel to the mines and gain guided entry.
On entering the start of the tour we were only then informed that it was not suitable for people with mobility issues as there were upto 500 steps to decend. This was not mentioned when booking or in the Gr8Way excursion brochure.
Both my mum and aunty were led outside and told to sit and wait 2.5hours for me to complete my tour.
They were locked out of the rest of the facilities so could not even use the canteen.
No guide to discuss a reimbursement on the coach back .
I have emailed the booking office twice requesting a partial refund for both , but not received a reply .
It should be made clear in the brochure that this does not suit less able bodied people or disabled.
Not impressed at all .

Fascinating
We went to see this with a tour group and I found it fascinating! Just to get into the tiny elevators and go down the shaft was a fun experience and the sculptures were amazing! I could not believe the things they were able to carve out of salt. I enjoyed the tour but our guide was new and you could tell he didn’t give any extra stories or experiences it was all pretty much a script. I was told before I came that this was a “must see” and I have to agree. Well worth your time it was about 20 minutes from the city center in traffic and the tour was about 2 hours. It took our afternoon but was well worth it!
