This was one of the most interesting tours I have ever been on! We visited in January so the mines were really quiet and there were only 10 people in our tour group. Our tour guide was really knowledgeable and answered all our questions. Involves a lot of walking and stairs, which we didn't care about, but it may be... More

At start of tour you have to go down about 200 steps on a windy wooden staircase, you need to be fit for this tour. Some fantastic carving and the underground chapels are amazing. Takes a good few hours to go round. At end of tour you need to get in a 4'x4' lift that is so fast its frightening... More

We chose to do the Miners Route based on the reviews from TripAdvisor. It was interesting to see the inside of a salt mine, but all of the "experiences" were really a bit corny. On this route you don't see any of the salt mine creations. Our tour was a group of about 15 people, so not crowded, like I... More

Myself and my 2 friends hopped on a tour here! It was only us and the guide as and this allowed for a very nice tour. I was amazed by the whole mine and particularly the lakes and Chapel all made out of salt. Didn't take any pictures inside as I didn't want to pay the 10 zloty to do... More

Definitely worth a visit although the 380 steps down to the 1st level are a bit hard going. The sheer size of the caverns and structures are awesome these miners are craftsmen. tour guides very informative had a great visit. The only thing to remember is that as you get a lift back to the surface when getting into said... More

I visited Wieliczka Salt Mine in December 2016 just before New Year. We booked the tickets online for "Tourists route". The tours are in Polish, English, German, Italian and Spanish. Our group was in english. At the engrave you get an audio- guide and follow the guide all the way. At first we went about 150 meter down by stairs... More

Be warned there's lots of steps down to the salt mine and lots of walking when you get there but it's definitely worth the effort. It's 15C down there so a welcome escape from the Polish winter too! Our guide was excellent and informative and the pace was just right. We used radio headphones to listen to her commentary and... More

Worth visiting, if you are fit and well. There are a LOT of steps. Our legs were feeling the burn the next day. But it is absolutely stunning and well worth it! We were lucky to have my dad on holiday with us to watch our young son because it wouldn't be interesting for kids. It really is stunning.

One recommendation, if you are staying at a hotel with concierge or have some time in your day to plan ahead, get your tickets earlier in the day so you won't have to wait in line as long. I really enjoyed the history of a place that was completely unknown to me, make sure to have a sweater or jacket... More
