  • Krakow: Wieliczka Salt Mine Guided Tour

    8. Krakow: Wieliczka Salt Mine Guided Tour

    Depart Krakow and journey to the incredible Wieliczka Salt Mine in a small group of no more than 8 passengers with an English-speaking driver. Meet a local guide employed by the salt mine on arrival, as your driver takes care of your entrance tickets. Make your way into the Danilowicz Shaft in a group of no more than 35 people, and learn the history of the mines on a 2.5-hour tour using earpieces to hear your guide clearly. Descend into the bowels of the earth using 800 steps to reach a depth of 135 meters (442 feet). Marvel at the rock salt walls and sculptures made by contemporary artists. Navigate the subterranean corridors and visit 20 different underground chambers, including the impressive St. Kinga's Chapel. Walk back to the shaft to return to the surface aboard an original lift used by the miners.

    Definitely a must see if you visit Krakow, the tour guide who brought us there, Jakob, was very friendly and knowledgeable. Our guide at the Salt Mines, Simon, was amazing, such a sense of humour and very informative. The only concern I had was that when we booked and paid for our tour we were not told that this does not include the entrance fee, we had to pay a further 270 zolties between 3 of us, we assumed that the cost included both travel and entrance fee, very disappointed in this.

The tour of Auschwitz was very informative and really put it into perspective when seeing the remains of the buildings and belongings that are there. I really liked that the tour provides you with a headset so you can hear the tour guide a lot clearer and easier as we were in a big group and had we had been at the back this would have not been possible. I didn't have much of an expectation for the Salt Mines but I was WOWed when we dove deeper into the mines. What has been done over the years is absolutely insane and amazing, definitely a must see even for those like myself who thought it wouldn't be anything special. I only wish the tour guide had the same headset idea that Auschwitz had as I found it very hard to hear the guide at times and had to keep asking my partner what they said. My only real negative is the small bus we were on that was almost full, was very cramped and hard to eat your lunch in comfort on. I could see no way to open any windows.

Excellent service from the tour company, and lunch was simple but really tasty. The guide for the Auschwitz tour was okay, but the one for the salt mine was amazing. I almost didn't go to the salt mine but I'm so so so glad I did. highly recommend this whole your!

New and very clean vehicles. Very professional and calm drivers, clear in the explanation of the daily activities and very helpful. Right times for visits and breaks between activities.

Perfect choice for everyone who wants to save time and visit both places. Guides, transportation, and all other service were worth every unit of money we have spent.

Very friendly guide and the ride there was great too!
