What people are saying about Wieliczka Salt Mine

Informative & Made You Feel Like You Were There

The tour of Auschwitz was unbelievable! The guide spoke with such pain, love, emotion that at moments made me tear up. The way she looked at you as if you were the only person she was taking on the tour was hypnotizing and hew emotions in her voice sounded as if she were about to break into tears as well - made me want to hug her. Highly recommend this tour! Wish I caught the tour guide's name to compliment her directly (Short, dark curly hair - if that helps?). The tour of the Salt Mine was absolutely mind blowing! To think what we explored was only 1% of the full mine is crazy! The tour guide was very friendly and informative as well as patient for a lot of us in the group taking photos. This was a great tour to do! The driver that collected me and my friend form our hotel for this day trip was great. Spoke professionally in the van, was VERY helpful with lending a charging point in his van for me and my friend as our phones batteries were not keeping up with the photo taking.

Smooth, well corridinated and informatiive tours

We had a great tour of the Salt Mine and Auschwitz-Birkenau. The pick up was on time, the tours were on schedule and given by very well informed and passionate guides. All sites were very crowded and the guides did a great job of moving us through the main highlights of each site. All transportation from Krakow, to the Salt Mine, then to Auschwitz and finally to Birkenau was on time and smooth. The tour bus was comfortable, clean and air conditioned and the driver was great. Total walking distance from our hotel in Krakow Old Town to the pick-up location and back to our hotel was 16km. The total time from pick up to drop of was about 12 hours. We brought food and that was wise as although there is some food available at the sites, often with the short time between locations, there were always crowds of people who had not brought food so there were commonly lineups that would make some of the transfers between sites a challenge to get food. A long day but well worth it.

Helpful and informative while not too overwhelming

The tour is very informative. Driver was very helpful in all occasion from waiting for us earlier than the promised time, helping secure our belonging, leading us to the tour guide and preparing the food for us. The journey to Auschwitz didn’t feel long at all with the documentary shown. Anna, our tour guide for Auschwitz and Birkenau was very knowledgable and passionate on educating us about the lesson learnt from the holocaust. The tour guide for Wieliczka Salt Mine was charming and funny, lightening up our mood and putting the perfect ending to the tour.

Auschwitz is a hard, but must see site and the Salt Mines are amazing!

This is a great tour at both venues. It is a long day, but worth it and we scheduled to do both in a day from Krakow. Our driver's personality left a bit to be desired and didn't really seem to like what he was doing. Fortunately, he wasn't our tour guide at the venues. The guides we had were great at both places. There was a bit too much time in Wieliczka for lunch and waiting for our appointed tour at the mines for some reason we didn't quite understand, but wondered the small town and found some ice cream to pass the time.

Very well organised, great value for money!

Obviously the subject matter of this tour is horrific and it is difficult to contextualise what these people suffered. None the less I strongly believe it must be experienced and these people never forgotten. To that end the tour we booked was fantastic. The driver and the tour guides were great and the whole experience was easy and convenient. The salt mines is an absolute must as well and genuinely stunned me, in a very different way to Auschwitz.
