What people are saying about Wieliczka

very unique experience. Everything is well arranged. The driver was right on time. We were taken to the salt mines in a nice van. The driver stayed with the group until the guide arrived. The guide spoke good English and knew a lot about the salt mine. After the tour of the salt mine, the driver was waiting and brought us back.

It was really amazing. The driver who picked us up was a really nice guy, really took care of everything. Told us a lot about the city, showed us where we had to go, picked up the tickets and was waiting for us when we were done. Also the tour itself was amazing, really nice guide en everything was very clear.

Good tour. We did have to wait outside for about 15/20 mins waiting on tour guide but plenty to do Wee gift shop and could get a coffee go to bathroom. Tour guide had excellent English our group was around 20 people. I think if anymore would be difficulties hear guide as no headsets.

Janusz transported us safely from our hotel to the Salt Mine and back safely. Janusz waited for us while we were led on our tour of the mine by a mine staff tour guide.

The guided tour was a great way to spend an afternoon in krakow!
