What people are saying about Wieliczka

Our driver - Andrew and our guide - Magda were fabulous. Very courteous, gracious, knowledgeable and kind. The salt mine tour and tour of Krakow are interesting and enjoyable. The details of our trip were confusing. Pick up times changed 3x and the pick-up place changed 2x. Our itinerary also stated that we had a ride from the train to our apartment and when I called, I was told there would be no driver. So the arrangement details were not reliable

Moving, moving, touching. Too bad that when we choose these two activities with the included meal we do not have time to eat. We need to plan a little more time ... We were given an appointment at 7:00 a.m. and our pick-up was at 8:20 a.m.

Well worth doing. Can get quite warm underground so advise to wear layers that can be taken off. Book in advance to save queuing.

It has been very well. The best guides and companions

Very well coordinated everything. The guides and companions very correct, polite and attentive. I would repeat and I recommend it

Excellent tour and guide, there was a lot of walking involved, maybe not so good for people who cannot walk far.
