Lovely giude and well organised. Tour. Well worth doing. Giude was very knowledgeable and answered all questions.
Fantastic Visit
, Mar 2020
Well worth a visit and only a 25 minute drive from Krakow. Guide in the salt mines was very knowledgeable. You must be able to walk down steps (over 800). The salt mines were mind blowing especially the church.
Trusted tour operator

Great experience although there are over 800 stairs to go down so not for the infirm! Very interesting and beautiful, great tour guide, my only complaint is the safety of the lift back to the ground, you are packed like sardines and the door would not even open when we got to the top as there were so many people squashed in!! I dread to think what would happen if it broke down!
Tour guide very knowledgable

This tour was great, our pick up time was confirmed with a time 24 hours before and the driver was not late. It took about 40 minutes to get there and from start to finish it was great with enough time to break before it started and during. The tour guide spoke great English and was very knowledgeable. The only downside was that we felt rushed at the end through the restaurant and shop. Apart from that I’d still recommend this tour
Very enjoyable day 😁

Salt mine visit

Very interesting and well worth going. Be prepared for a lot of steps down ( about 500 in total) and quite a brisk walking pace.
Tour great, driver ...ermmm?
, Feb 2020
The salt mines are only around half an hour from Krakow so not too far. The tour is fabulous and a great experience. Worth the money to see something different. Only missed out on a 5 star review as the driver of our minibus for pulled over by the police and wasn’t permitted to continue driving.... not great from a tour company. Viator did explain that the driver was subcontracted but to be honest, better checks are maybe necessary! We got the public tram back to town as couldn’t wait an hour for a replacement driver to turn up!
Viator transport & salt mine guided tour.
, Feb 2020
Viator transport arrived on time & it was a great service from start to finish, same as many other times we have used Viator. The salt mine guided tour was wonderful. Plenty of stairs and plenty of walking so wear your comfy walking shoes. Highly recommended if you are interested in history as there is so much to learn.
