Really enjoyed the trip . At times we couldn’t hear the tour guide as the group was very large and the signal for the earphones wasn’t great, this a little disappointing . Fantastic place and well worth a trip

Amazing place. We booked to be part of a group tour. It felt a bit rushed but what you see is really impressive! To think all this built underground out of salt years ago. The lakes and candelabras made of salt make you think of the hard work and determination of centuries ago.
