The trip was brilliant from the pick-up to the full tour. The guide was very knowledgeable and excellent. The salt mines are amazing and huge your visit is just 1% of the mine. Be prepared for walking lots of steps downwards so wear appropriate footwear. Definitely recommend this trip if you are visiting nearby.

Tour company average but Tour guide at the mine excellent
Andrew_E, Apr 2024
Tour guide at the Salt Mine was excellent. The transport company/driver didn't provide much communication and should have given a little time at the end to explore the gardens and grounds which I believe are very nice?
Good enough
Holly_O, Apr 2024
Our trip to the salt mine was very enjoyable. The tour guide spoke great English and was easy to understand. She was very knowledgeable and friendly, she made the tour a special experience we'll never forget! However it would be nice if there was time to visit the museum in the salt mine as well as we were told we would not have time to do this. Also, the hospitality going to and from the salt mine was poor. No one told us what was going on and we were passed between multiple people, none of whom introduced themselves or made any effort to build a rapport.
Very beautiful
seenu_k, Apr 2024
Very beautiful and the lighting inside was amazing to take pics. There are quite a few stairs going down but you take an elevator back up. Def recommend visiting.

Beautiful but difficult descent
Heather_L, Mar 2024
Great tour guide, friendly , interesting and knowledgeable. Did not like the descent into the mine at the beginning of tour - very long and endless flights of stairs. Would have helped if person at top had given us a heads up as to this. I felt quite panicked by it. Utter relief to get to bottom. Tour guide really calming with voice when we met her. The mine itself not at all claustrophobic, airy and wide spaces and high ceilings. Beautiful cathedral. Amazing carvings. Just be prepared for that descent.
Do not trust the word of the local tour operator
Kevin_L, Feb 2024
I have just walked 45 min to a pickup point to go to the Salt miner in the pouring rain. I received an e mail to tell me to go to this meeting point because road works prevented this company from picking us up from our hotel. This was a complete LIE. There were no road works as I checked with my hotel. We even drove past our hotel on the way to the salt mines. The only saving grace was our tour of the salt miners was excellent.

From start to finish this was an excellent tour. Highly recommended. Tour guide was very knowledgeable. It was amazing.
Wow!!
AnneCaroline_S, Dec 2023
Visited on the recommendation of friends. So glad we did. Such an amazing tour and we were also fortunate that transport to and from also included. So much to see and learn about the history of the mine and also what goes on there today. We have some fantastic photos of a memorable visit. Not to be missed.
Awe-inspiring salt mines
Alexander_C, Dec 2023
The salt mines were incredible, and it was great to have a no-frills booking that provided round-trip transportation and arranged for our entry tickets. I only wish our driver had given us a rough time to aim to be back on the bus. Because he didn't, everyone trickled back at different times, so I ended up waiting on the bus for a while when I could have spent it exploring or grabbing a snack or coffee instead.
Excellent tour guide but bus was very delayed
Miriam_R, Nov 2023
The bus was scheduled to collect us at 9am, but we got a text the night before to say it would be rescheduled to 9.25am which was fine but unfortunately the bus did not show up until 10am and there were alot of us left waiting. The tour was due to be back in Krakow at 12.30pm but didn't arrive back until 2pm. The delays were disappointing as we had other plans for the day but the tour itself was excellent. Agnieszka was our tour guide who works in the Salt mines and she was very knowledgeable.
Great trip
Brenda_G, Nov 2023

Peter_B, Nov 2023
Excellent tour, with a very experienced knowledgeable guide. We all thoroughly enjoyed the experience. There was only one thing that slightly tainted the day, the driver was very rude & needs lessons in courtesy & general manners.
Salt mines
Andy_D, Oct 2023
Really good tour and guide. Not for those with walking or mobility issues. Over 70 floors of steps and very claustrophobic
Superb Trip
Nicola_H, Oct 2023
This was recommended to me, I actually had no idea what to expect but it was amazing. Our tour guide was brilliant, very knowledgeable with a great sense of humour. Would highly recommend.
Great experience
Alex_H, Oct 2023
This was our first trip with Viator and it was great from start to finish. Pick up was on time, the driver was professional and shared the itinerary as we started to drive, the Salt Mine tour was great and going back to Krakow was smooth.
After a bad start it was excellent
JANET_T, Oct 2023
Brilliant trip despite coach over 30mins late and paying for hotel pick up option then told they don't do this! The mine is an amazing sight to see. Excellent guide too.
Great company
Ruth_D, Oct 2023
