    Historical tour offers insight into how this mine developed.

    The entire experience of physically walking down stairs, viewing the size of the mines and learning how the mines started in the 13th century.

    Learning the history and surprise as to how old it was! The church and halls were magnificent, a total surprise so deep in the mine.

    Anne_M, Apr 2024
    The tour was brilliant very lovely and informative tour guide. Only downside was the lack of signposting to return from the building back to the bed park.

    An excellent tour!
    Georgia_S, Apr 2024
    We booked onto this tour last minute as another tour cancelled on us at very short notice. The pick up location was easy to find and the bus was on time, despite the Krakow Marathon being on the same day! Our tour guide at the mine was brilliant - she spoke in excellent English and was extremely knowledgable. I would highly recommend booking this tour.

    Hugely overpriced but excellent tour
    Janet_C, Apr 2024
    Exceptional organisation - collected at times specified, very informative/friendly driver but hugely over priced. 30 minute drive cost over £80.

    Awesome underground salt sculptures.
    Leandre_M, Apr 2024
    Awesome underground salt sculptures from many years ago. The massive church chamber is certainly the highlight. Miles of tunnels and exhibits - not exactly the Louvre, but a good visit, well organised. Felt perfectly safe - No hard hat required. Be ready for 2 hours of walking and staircases though - not for the faint-hearted!

    A great tour close to Krakow
    Julie_N, Apr 2024
    A great trip & just a short coach ride from a pick up in central Krakow. A fascinating tour & only for the more mobile due to steps down & walking distance around the mine. The only negative was the tour group was too big meaning you missed out on the tour guides information especially if you were at the back or hard of hearing - maybe headsets would help?
    Response from Host, Apr 2024

    Interesting experience
    Carina_S, Apr 2024
    The mine is worth a visit and it is a special experience. Good guide who,however, could not be heard if you were not nearby all the time. It would have been better if she had had a microphone. The ending was not so successful as we had to wait a long time before we were allowed to go out and we had to walk for 20 minutes before we got to the lift.

    Fitness session
    Rob_R, Apr 2024
    Rushed around, very busy , if your were not reasonably fit would be struggling to keep up,bus delayed because people did not come back at stated time
    Response from Host, Apr 2024
    Thank you for choosing Discover Cracow. The guide has a limited time to guide the tour, and the mine area is very large, so you may feel rushed. However, we hope that the mine itself was a unique experience for you.
    A must do

    Suzette_A, Mar 2024
    Enjoyed the trip. Was busy. A lot if steps but very interesting. Wasn't given a time to get back to the coach. Not much break time and no time time for lunch. All in all worth a visit.

    Really good trip. Didn’t feel rushed. Peter? (He called us Peter’s group but not sure if that was his actual name) was a great tour guide. Really informative but with a little humour too.

    Don't rely on transport via operator to mines, get an uber
    Judy_O, Mar 2024
    The mines were lovely our guide was great however our transport from hotel was prearranged with vivator. Terrible, for a journey that should take 20 mins it took an hour and a half, we drove in circles picking up other people booked on the tour, all around the same area close to old town, we arrived 10 minutes late to mines for our allocated time slott, driver dumped us out, we had to wait an additional 2 hours to get in next available slott and driver did not come back, we had to call him which took another 40 mins. My advise get an uber out to the mines to meet yr guide as the appointed driver via vivator is a nightmare if u want to spend all that time driving around krakow.
