A few people - including one from our party - couldn't handle the 400 step twisty staircase descending into the mine. You need to be fit and not claustrophobic to do this tour. My teenage boys even felt dizzy and their knees were wobbly when they reached the bottom. It is however well worth it - it's spectacular. I would... More

Well worth doing this. The sheer scale of it is what is most jaw dropping. You are shown around by a guide (one we had was excellent) and each group has 15 people or so so it is not crowded at all. Well organised. Recommend.

Loved the salt mines. Our guide was informative and witty all the way through constantly checking we were all together. Alot of walking steps down were not a problem but theres also alot of walking to get further down. Beautiful sculptures and history all throughout. I was nervous about the lift going back up as i had heard bad things... More

Quite a few of our friends had heard of this place and had told us how wonderful it is, so we chose a tour there as opposed to going to Auschwitz. You certainly couldn't do both in one day as each takes a few hours. An incredible place and be prepared for lots of walking. The lift back to the... More

I am amazed by all of it. About 2-3 hours long tour through the mazes of the salt mine is not even slightly tiring. It is not even cold there, so the whole walk is very comfortable. I cannot even start to describe the mightiness that we saw there, you just have to go and see for yourself. We did... More

Whilst indeed this has become a major tourist attraction, it still is amazing. We took a guided tour and lasted about two and a half hours. You go 135m deep mostly by stairs but don't worry there is a lift up unless you feel like walking up another 400 steps. The chambers and cathedral are amazing and only to think... More

The mine is very interesting and beautiful.We had very good guide,so I mean that was the reason that our tour was very interesting and funny. The best time for visiting is morning because later are here a lot of tourists (big traffic). In mine is good restaurant

This was the highlight of the 4 day trip to Krakow that I took in August. I took a guided tour and the guide was knowledgeable and also humorous too. The mines are a true wonder to behold especially St Kinga's chapel.

It took only 25 minutes on a mini bus to get there and it was well worth the visit. The first 378 steps are not for the feint hearted but worth the walk. I have arthritis in my knees but I managed them ok. The sculptures are great but when you look down on the church for the first time... More
