Superb and you shouldn't miss this! You have to go if you're in Krakow!
Dec 2019
Every part of this visit was fantastic and how anyone can leave a bad review is beyond me. Well organised, the queues seemed to move quite quickly and, once were inside, the guide was great too. In total, you walk down 800 steps but you'll hardly notice. To see the vast caverns and the chandeliers made of salt is quite outstanding. The good news is that there's a lifft to get back up. Great value for money too!

Left a bitter taste in mine mouth.
Mar 2020
After reading all of the 5* reviews i thought i was in for a magnificent day and i am afraid to say that i was hideously disappointed.
Upon group arrival we were told that we didn't have a tour guide available.. That's fine - I'll grab a drink!

When we did start to go through i found that it was all very rushed and we were constantly waiting behind a bigger group who seemed to be able to enjoy and understand the mines - Unlike us who were zoomed around that fast it felt like an episode of supermarket sweep with all the gift shops.

Worth a visit if you're in Krakow but don't expect a jaw dropping tour like i did!

Amazing Experience, not to be missed!
Sep 2019
The salt mine was a 15 min drive from Krakow. We walked 800 steps down to the largest chapel located at 135 metres depth. There were elaborate carvings on the solid salt walls and chandeliers made from salt crystals. Just an amazing sight. The floor in some locations was made of solid salt tiles. Going back up to the surface is by way of a lift. Good fitness and walking shoes are a basic requirement for this tour. We spent approximately 2 hrs underground and had a very good guide. Amazing Experience, not to be missed if in Krakow.

The best thing I’ve ever done!
Sep 2019 • Couples
If you go to Kraków you HAVE to go to the salt mines. It’s the best thing we did and still to this day I’m amazed by it. It’s ALOT of walking our feet ached at the end of the day but would do it again and again. Our guide was so factual and thorough it was really great. 10/10

Salt mines at wieliczka
A must see. Amazing, grandiose mine-unbelievable to imagine miners working in this. There are many delightful sculptures inside the mine. we were told that the miners carved them in ‘their spare time.
People also rent the mine out for special events.

Must see
Dec 2019 • Couples
Visiting both this and Auchwitz are recommended if you are planning a trip to Kraków. There are a lot of steps down (and a lift back up) our guide was informative and insightful. We were given a good background into the conditions the miners were put under and it was very factual. you can’t fathom the scale of it unless you see for yourself.

Worth a visit but be warned ... lots of steps and walking
Dec 2019 • Friends
Really enjoyed this tour which we purchased on the gate upon arrival. Took my 72 year parents which was a mistake. We knew there was a lot of steps but we’re not prepared for the amount of walking involved and at one point I genuinely was worried they were going to collapse.

Be prepared if you visit -it’s not suitable for the unfit, young children or the elderly. However us younger fitted members did enjoy it even though our feet were sore at the end of the day. Just when you think your ready to get on the lift back out, the tunnels are endless until you finally get to the lifts.

The changers however and carvings were worth it and the added bonus of a choir singing in the largest chamber was amazing with fantastic acoustics.

We also visited the newly opened observation tower - not sure really what it was for apart from therapeutic apparently but it was worth a look at just over £1 entry fee.

Unbelievable
Dec 2019 • Couples
While planning a recent trip to Krakow everybody who was previously there recommended very strongly that I visited the Salt Mines. Recommendations were so strong I felt I had no choice. I’m glad I went because any preconceived notion I had could not have prepared me for this spectacular visit. As captioned unbelievable, has to be seen. Great tour, great guides. Do not leave this tour behind if you visit Krakow

Also a very good tour and well organised.It was amazing what the miners achieved over all the years and the engineering to create a working mine for many many years.
