What people are saying about Wieliczka Salt Mine
Had a great trip to both Auschwitz and the salt mine. Was picked up on time by driver and tour guide Michael who was lovely. Our tour guide at Auschwitz was very good and passionate. And our tour guide Tomas at the salt mine was really good.
Salt mines are well worth a visit tho the tour inside the mine was a little too long. Guide was very informative Transport to and from our residence was excellent .
this was one of my beautiful visit experience...there`s over 800 stairs to go down but with a comfortable shoes you don`t even know that you have made it, but for the rest of your mind there will be an elevator to go up again....the tour leader was great and the audio system was perfect.i do recommend this tour its worth it.
This is a trip that I have wanted to make for some time. I was taken aback by the sheer scale of the camp at Birkenau. The exhibition and camp at Auschwitz 1 was just mind blowing. How anyone can behave the way the nazis did is beyond comprehension and this shows at first hand the hell that these prisoners experienced and endured. Sadly, the human race doesn't seem to learn from history as we see scenes such as this taking place in Africa, Syria and the Ukraine. It should be the duty of all governments to make this trip part of the school curriculum to teach us all about the horrors of what people went through. Id also like to mention our guide, Justyna, who was excellent.
Fascinating place. Informative and friendly guide. We went in late October so it wasn't as busy as some reviews have suggested it would be. Well worth a visit if you are in Krakow.
