Amazing

The guide was excellent. The amazing carvings and the grand hall were spectacularly. You should really try to lick the wall, as the guide pointed out you can, but try to find a spot someone else has not licked.

Was some confusion with pick up. They had to send a 2nd driver which meant a 30 minute delay but the mines are incredible.

The trip overall was good but we were split up for the lift back to the surface and when we came out, we had no idea where we were and nearly missed the coach back.

Boring guided tour, not adding any interesting information about the mine
Lone_J

Interesting to see the salt mine, and now we know, that we would have preferred to take the visit without the guide on our own hand. The guide was difficult to hear, but when we could her her she did not have interesting information about the salt mine and was not great with communication. We cannot recommend a guided tour, as we do not feel it added any extra information about the salt mines and with a close to staccato-like tour guide, who almost felt as if she was ready from a manuscript and with a monotone voice.

Not worth 1/2 a day out of your vacation

We had heard great things about the Salt Mines and were excited for the tour. However, when we arrived our tour group size was 40 people and the tour guide's microphone didn't work further than 6m. With such a large group it was impossible to stay within the 6m range the entire time so the tour guide kept cutting in and out. Also, there was another tour group right behind us and the tour guide was speaking very loud. It made it difficult to concentrate on our tour guide and to not feel rushed. Overall, we walked away thinking meh that was okay. Certain parts of the mine were pretty but everything else blended together - it was one chamber after another. We also walked away not learning a ton about the mine itself. There was little history shared about the mine itself - the content of the tour could be revamped significantly. Wouldn't recommend wasting half a day here when your time is limited in Krakow.

Dear Guest, thank you very much for your feedback. We are very sorry to hear that you were not satisfied with this tour due to low quality of the guide's microphone and headphones, we will share it further to the Salt Mines Office so they can improve this in future. Kind regards,

We went without my wife because her knees are bad and there is a lot of walking. Our English guide was speaking broken English. We could understand but not many stories about the mines.
