What people are saying about Wieliczka
A good day out. Amazing place. Lots of steps & walking involved but other options available for different disabilities. Temperature is always constant 14-16deg controlled, but was actually more like 20deg... no jackets needed. Air quality was really good & healthy! They have free storage of items you don't want to carry around. Guide was good & entertaining, although he spoke quickly and muffled/mumbled a bit. Headphone system didn't work great... better to be close to the guide & not use. Legs ached the next day, so it was a good workout :)...
What a great trip, our driver was very friendly and spoke good English. Once we arrived at the mine everything was very well organised, and our guide was very knowledgeable. My wife and I both thoroughly enjoyed our trip well worth the visit. One thing to bear in mind is that you will need to be fairly fit as you will descend to 145 metres underground and it is all steps, hundreds of them but don't be put off as the lift back to the top is quite an experience. Go for it and enjoy.
I booked this tour for myself and my 2 English-speaking friends. I loved how easy it was to find the meeting point and how everything was well organized. There was no need for transportation since there are public buses running between Cracow and Wieliczka (bus stop: Kopalnia Soli). The Salt Mine was really fun and we learned a lot from the tour guide. I only wish we had more time to explore the mine but I guess these are the constraints of such a touristy place. Great tour!
The tour itself was excellent with a extremely knowledgable guide in Joanna. Only criticism was the organisation from the pickup point and transportation was chaotic. We were dropped of at a completely different place from where we were picked up. There was also no guide on the return journey on the coach.
A lot of queeing and brakes which is due to the unavoidable physical circumstances and huge crouds of people. As always guides are young and "run" - they forget that they will be old some day. We were adviced before that it is cold in the mine - actually there is warm and sweaty !
