Wieliczka Salt Mine Tour

The chapel of Saint Kinga in Wieliczka Salt Mine is one of the wonders of Poland. Hand-carved one hundred years ago by a group of highly gifted miners, it is an awe-inspiring thing to behold. It would be a great shame to miss it if you're coming to Krakow, and besides, there are many other attractions to be explored here too, including underwater lakes, as well as ancient, smaller chapels - the mines here date all the way back to the thirteenth century.

We will drive you direct to the mines, which saves you having to mess around with buses or trains. We will pick you up straight from your hotel. Once there, we'll see to it that you can join an English speaking tour of the interior. Of course, after the tour of the mines, we'll drive you back to wherever you would like to be dropped off in Krakow!

As always, our tours are original and free of overcrowded buses!. We'll make sure you know all the info and that you won't miss anything along the way. All of our guides are locals with great personalities and they really know their stuff. They'll make sure each and every tour is perfect!

Very good tour, only downside is the waiting in queues

Guest 11th July 2016

Tour was ok, everything went well. Wieliczka was little disapointment.

Jane Richardson 12th June 2016

Superb and interesting experience. Very informative guide. Your driver was good. My husband hadn't been well so he was able to phone ahead to arrange for him to take the lift for initial part of tour.

Guest 27th May 2016

Great tour and guide

Laura Harrison 24th May 2016

The salt mines were a fantastic experience which we thoroughly enjoyed the guide was very knowledgeable a must do if visiting krakow

Guest 14th March 2016

Impressive. The structure for tourists at the Mine impressed me. Great tour!

Guest 18th February 2016

OK, but the salt mines is verry commercial. We dont realy have the idee what was the work in the mine

Massimiliano 6th January 2016

I would give 10 for the service you provided, the overall 8 is due to a guide who was little bit too boring.. a little bit more of verve would help when you spend 2 hours 135 metres underground :-)

Ray Dawson 24th December 2015

The tour felt a bit like a route march. Although I am sure we saw everything we were meant to, it felt rushed (well inside our expected timings). The lift to the surface is not a good experience.

Rhona McIlear 4th December 2015

Great tour. Our guide was very informative and funny

Tracy McNamara 22nd September 2015

Lovely tour. So many steps down but the view at the bottom is so worth it. Informative guide.

Guest 3rd September 2015

Very impressive place. But a long Time waiting on Line to get inside.

Guest 3rd September 2015

A good tour, but we had to wait for a long Time and big group Beautiful sculpturs and I was very impress by the mine

Prescott 28th July 2015

very interesting almost unbelievable. what a great achievement.

Christopher Moss 11th June 2015

The salt mine itself was amazing, but the guide lacked enthusiasm. At the end of the tour he had to take us to an alternative lift which was a long walk. Then once above ground we were at a different exit point nd let out in torrential rain to find our own way back to the coach. Same driver as on the Auswitz tour. Very friendly and kept an eye out for us.

S. Gitelson 1st June 2015

The Salt Mine was fascinating and we enjoyed the tour, however the guide spoke softly and the equipment she used was staticky so we missed some of the commentary. The driver was prompt and the drive was good and he took care of everything perfectly.

Debbie Beeforth 19th May 2015

Well worth a visit. It was just a shame we had a 20 minute walk through the mine to another lift ! But even with that its still and excellent place to visit.

Rajiv Gandhi 13th May 2015

We were in a private transport and so had to wait for the group to arrive as we were to join the group for the salt mine tour. This took away a lot of our time. Very undesirable to combine a private transport with a group tour.

Martin Adams 29th March 2015

Amazingly good do much hard work when in to this the miners were kept very busy indeed what a fabulous part of polish history recommend for all.

Mick Nutt 27th February 2015

didn`t expect the tour to be as good as it was. much better than we expected. Great

Guest 25th February 2015

The group was a little too big and its was difficult to hear our guide as her voice did not carry felt a bit rushed with groups behind

Guest 10th October 2014

My husband and I enjoyed the tour thoroughly. We found it very educational and beautiful. It was something on our bucket list. It wasn't taxing physically either. The guide was easy to understand. One of the best aspects was that, for us, it started at 4:15. So we had all day to enjoy the outdoors. And we were back in time for dinner.

Aidan Mallon 6th April 2014

excellent tour very proffesionally run

Mario Ferrante 4th March 2014

The Salt Mine at Wieliczka really must be seen. It was a totally new experience for me, I had never seen anything like it before. I would strongly recommend doing this tour.

Linda Hutchon 24th February 2014

10 = brilliant. We went as a family of 5 with the youngest 11 years of age. We all found it so interesting and would highly recommend it as a place to visit.

Ray Perkins 14th February 2014

very good tour amazing place

Jane Heaton 30th November 2013

Couple of areas under refurbishment but that can't be helped otherwise brilliant!

Sarah 13th November 2013

Very interesting tour, well worth seeing

Ross McGill 12th November 2013

The Wieliczka salt mine tour went smoothly mainly because of the advice I had received from Kasia on conditions and what to expect. The guide was a young student who enjoyed the day, he was very good.

Guest 18th October 2013

Must see - very interesting site - a bit chilly underground

Mrs Karen Mackrodt 19th August 2013

Warn people if they are slightly claustrophobic this is not the place for them, someone in our party had to escape almost at the beginning.

Guest 4th July 2013

I was there 16 years ago and now it looks like Disney. It was nicer when not many people were around, even i took the lift to go down and this last time stairs. Too many changes but it´s been spoilt, from my point of view.

Anna Randall 30th June 2013

A wonderful trip, and well worth seeing.

Robert Jankowski 19th June 2013

Our guide was top notch. Treated us really well throughout.

Tony Colaizzo 22nd April 2013

Anthony Wynn 1st April 2013

It was a great surprise and our guide provided a really helpful insight into the history and culture of salt mining near Krakow

EVELINE LENNOX 28th February 2013

The tour was very informative , yet entertaining

Bjørn Solem 12th December 2012

Very satisfyed,

Guest 13th November 2012

I can't hear the guide's voice even standing very close to the guide. It would be good if we can have head phones. Most of the sections are decorations. It will be more real and interesting if it shows the actual view of every mining procedure.

Guest 3rd October 2012

unbelievable workmanship

Elizabeth Hardwick 2nd October 2012

Our guide was absolutely great. She walked a little fast and more time in the St. Kinga Cathedral would have been nice. I can't say enough good things about it.
