The trip is about half a day. We went when it was hot outside 30 degrees and were advised to take jumpers as it is 55 inside the mines. We didn't need jumpers as it was not cold . The carvings are fantastic and you...More

The place has changed in a really good tourist object, which is a must. For saftey they are thinking the most, which is nice, but wanted to get some freedom, or atleast 15 min on your own time.

Whilst the chapel was beautiful and some of the caverns very impressive the tour was let down by the very softly spoken and disinterested tour guide. The tour is rather long and gets very repetitive - 'this room is made of salt' There are many...More

As part of a group of 11, this was my wife and my second visit. It is still amazing. Our nine friends loved it, and it was just as interesting as last time. If you're visiting Krakow, this is a must see visit. I would...More

Recently visited the salt mine with SeeKrakow and was organised by the hotel. Picked up from the hotel by some sort of Kamikaze driver who was not in a good mood. We arrived later than intended at the salt mine where the staff were rather...More

we had a guided tour and you could take as many photos as you like, I wouldn't like to go without a guide as the mines are vast and they tell you all about the mines...tour lasted about 3 hours

I travel to Krakow often, when I need a guide or a car/driver I always use krakow tourtime. John Gale has organised the tour to the salt mines. All went well! His number is: 00 48 507 984 199. Good luck!
