What people are saying about Wieliczka

For anyone thinking of doing this trip it does fulfil everything it says, commutable coach ( although be wary if you book a late time slot and they are not busy you'll get pushed to an earlier time , we went from 9am to 7 15 am , which kind of ruined the night before as we were up early. The salt mines were OK ,not spectacular really, well maybe one or two rooms , but it was included in the trip so happy we went . Traveling times are not bad , roughly an hour and 20 mins was the longest ride . Auschwitz ,well that needs no description, a must see to keep the memories alive of those that died and survived its horrendous past . So I do recommend this trip, comfortable shoes are a must , take snacks , water , suncream , also take pictures at Auschwitz , it will give you something to look at and remember,take pictures of any writing on information boards with pictures or just writing, theres so much information you can't take in whilst you're there, research names on the suitcases!

Anna was a friendly guide who told about Krakow, Auschwitz and the Wieliczka-Saltmine. The day was very interesting. It's terrible what has happened in the second world war and it may never happen again. The Saltmine is beautiful from the inside. Really an amazing day!

Everything was perfect! Our driver very polite and helpful, driving very carefully, and wanda the guide in auschwitz just amazing. Salt mines also worth the visit, but be prepared for a long day with a lot of walking!

The guide was very helpful, he was always making sure we all were happy and making sure we all had everything we needed.
