The salt mines are beautiful, from Krakow with the minivan we have about 3 quarters of an hour to get there, so very little. The driver picked us up at the scheduled time and showed us where we wanted, not outside the hotel. The very kind driver, he waited with us for the time we entered, and at the exit he was found in the parking lot to return, all very organized. Tour that I highly recommend, and worth what you spend. However, those who suffer from anxiety may not be able to go, because they go down many meters underground, so it may not be favorable if someone suffers. Finally, I'd give 10 stars if you could, everything perfect.

I highly recommend visiting the salt mine for both the charm and the experience. The punctual driver is very nice and accompanied us to the queue for our tour in Italian and provided us with the newly arrived tickets. At the exit he was waiting for us to take us directly to the house. The experience of the mine was very interactive and also quite lively during all the 800 steps that went down to reach 135 meters underground.

Very good transport (Mercedes) with a very friendly and courteous driver. Guide in the salt mine perfectly prepared and very friendly. Attention: many levels I would book again!

Everything perfect from the pick-up, to the visit with the guide, exhaustive and professional! Very beautiful mines!

The mines are exceptional, the communication has been perfect.
