    Tour to the salt mine

    The tour at the mine was great and I recommend it. But we ordered a private transport and the pickup time was 9:55 but we should be ready 9:40. At 10:20 I called and asked where the driver was. They checked and told me that the new time was 10:35 but I haven't got any message about that. The car came att 10:40.

    The trip was well organised, the driver was excellent, gave us a lot of information about Krakow when he was driving us to the mines and the guide was excellent, extremely knowledgeable. Would recommend this trip to anyone who is visiting Krakow.
