The salt mines are amazing. Our guide was very knowledgeable and kept us laughing. Be prepared for lots of walking. It’s a popular place so the tour is a little fast paced. A must see if visiting Krakow.

Excellent tour. Really enjoyed going to the salt mines. I also used their driving service which was very convenient.
Great Tour in Krakow
Steve_S, Dec 2023
We were in Krakow to visit the Christmas Market. One side trip we were told to take was a tour of the Salt Mines. We were not disappointed. The trip for Old Town Krakow to the mines was about 40 minutes. Our driver was very prompted in picking us up and also very clear in telling us where to meet at the end of our tour. The Tour guide at the mine was great. Her English was very good, and she was very knowledgeable about the mines. It definitely is a lot of walking, but it is worth it to hear the fascinating story of the development of the mine and the carvings within. We would certainly recommend a tour it your schedule allows for it.
Worth a visit
Heather_K, Dec 2023
Well worth a visit, the mines are extraordinary. I went with elderly parents who still walk but are a bit slower, they made it but were tired. Group was probably a bit big, lots of barging and trying to get a seat for an 80 year old man off a group of 20 year old...impossible! Lifts were an expensive option down. The tour company were excellent, on time with both pickups and driver David, friendly.
This tour is overrated....
Michael_C, Nov 2023
This tour is overrated. We were all expecting the wow factor. Also very expensive compared to other Krakow tours
A must

Fantastic service . My driver Maciek was utterly brilliant and kept me informed on pick up times . He was friendly and polite and drive with care Thanks to Jim and you’re your I had a great time
Needs smaller groups
Phillip_W, Oct 2023
The Salt Mine was interesting; however, we were in a group of about 40 so it was difficult to hear the guide if you were short and didn’t elbow your way to the front. Also, with so many people, difficult to take pictures. Need smaller groups!
Unforgettable Tour of Salt Mines
