Excellent experience!
Have used Viator in the past and once again it didn’t disappoint. I had trouble finding the pick up location (my hotel doesn’t allow minivan size however pick up location was not easy to find without google maps) and driver worked with me. Driver was professional and friendly. Van was clean and comfortable. Will use Viator again.

Its a must go
A must visit when in Krakow. Contact with the provider extremely easy even messaged the night before confirming pick up time Minibus was clean, exactly on time. The tour is done by a official tour guide of the mine, really informative. Lots of walking but incredible.
