  • The Salt Mine tour is simply awesome - well organised, amazing sights. You will be walking down a lot of steps !! But well worth the effort there is a lift back up

  • Transport arrived on time, driver was friendly and knowledgeable. Tour was brilliant and we really enjoyed it. Very stress free, would recommend as queues at mine were long and booking like this was so much easier than trying to sort ourselves on the day.

  • We enjoyed this trip and there was lots to see
    The only thing was they don't give you long enough breaks to get a drink/something to eat

  • Hotel pick up was on time and the driver was very friendly and knowledgeable on explaining not just what to expect at the Mines, but general Polish history for general knowledge. Trip was good - very insightful.

  • This is a must see and do tour. Our guide was brilliant - very knowledgeable and funny. The time went really quickly and I would go back again if I ever get the chance. It is important to be able to walk down a lot of steps and then you are on your feet for a couple of hours. but it is very worthwhile.

  • super

  • This is a fantastic trip and our guide was great and very witty. The Chapel is beautiful and worth the 800 steps to get to it. May not be suitable for those with walking difficulties or young children although there is a lift which is used for weddings and it would be worth asking about this as it is a trip not to be missed.

  • Great tour!! very well organized and guides are very knowledgable.

  • Nice trip, not too far from Kraków (about 20 minutes). We got picked up at 09.30 and was back in Kraków 13.30 so we still had a lot of the day to do other things which was nice.

  • unbelievable , highly recommended
