Visited the Salt Mine through Krakow Direct Tours and we really enjoyed it. If you want to go as part of a group I would recommend them. The Salt Mine is worth seeing, its amazing how big the mine actually is and thats only what we see in the tour. Our tour guide Marek (Mr Salt Man) was good fun... More

If You have a trip to Krakow, than the Wieliczka Salt Mine is a must see. Its really close to the city and easily approachable. Its better to buy the tickets in advance, because many tourists are visiting this mine. We had a very nice guide - Magdalena - who explained to us (in english) everything clearly. The tour takes...

Very professional and competent guides and format lead you don through history and reveal section by section at times jaw dropping works, yes some machinery used, but by far the majority of which was carried out by hand. The chaple itself, well not really a chaple as it is a full blown church is simply slack jaw dropping and even... More

You will not believe whats under your feet !! Descend some 300mts to vast caverns. See amazing sculptures and carving dating back 800 years. You must be prepared for quite a walk involving going down some 500 steps but it is well worth it. Relax - you come back up by lift !! A must visit probably as a separate... More

It's an amazing place but we also felt bad because we had to leave! Our english tour guide I think was named Dominika and she was super cool and funny, making the whole trip even better. The tour has 2 parts, the second is optional but included in the price. Please also visit the 2nd one as it is very... More

We had a day to spend in Krakow and decided to visit the Salt Mine, I did not have any idea what we would experience and I had my husband in tow who does not do culture. We arrived at the mine with my brother and his friend who is polish. We agreed on an english tour for which my... More

This tour was great! It starts off with about 500 steps down into the mine which I thought was going to be hell but actually wasn't too bad. The whole tour is pretty good - some cheesy plastic people to show different things within the mine but apart from that it was great to see. The three chapels are absolutely... More

Very beautiful tour! Our tour guide, an English young man was great. A lot of humor and really made the trip two times better.

An absolutly lovely trip. We booked with Crackow City Tours for about £20 each, which was at the most £5 more than if we had got our own transport and tickets (which is very doable.) For this we were picked up from our apartment so we did not have to worry about the bus/train linking up with the tours, got... More
