Descend to the atmospheric depths of one of the world’s oldest working salt mines on a half-day trip to the Wielickza Salt Mine from Krakow. Alongside your guide, you’ll travel to a depth of 462 feet (140 meters) and navigate an atmospheric tangle of underground chambers replete with mining machines and impressive carvings. Marvel at structures made entirely from salt as you listen to the salt mine’s rich history and ascend to sea level in a swift lift. Round-trip transport from your Krakow hotel is included.
The Salt mine was an excellent tour with lots of really interesting information from our guide Michael. I can confirm that the walls actually do taste like salt! It's incredible all of the statues and the chandeliers made from the salt. Our favourite part was probably listening to Chopin by the salt water. We'd definitely recommend a visit and perhaps if we went again, we'd take the advice of our guide at a different tour and count the steps on the way down stops you feeling so dizzy!
Recommendations: try and stick closer to the guide as sometimes the earphones cut out due to signal being underground so we didn't always hear what was being said, but what we did catch was very funny/interesting and we'd recommend Michael!
Tour was brilliant very interesting and I would thoroughly recomend it. Expert guide who was very knowledgeable and funny. We were picked up from our hotel and driven to the salt mine by a very friendly drive who was there to meet us after our tour finished and drove us back to our hotel
Our guide picked us up directly at our hotel. Instead of a giant bus we were joined by others to be a small group of 12 I now a mini-bus/van. Our guide walked us right where our tour started tour is run by the salt mine. Tour group within the mine had about 30 people and then picked us up when we were done. Our guide was knowledgeable and professional. It was worth it to us having the less crowded/more personal ride out to the salt mines. The salt mines themselves are a unique, interesting place to see.
Impressive place it was worth it to experience. Great tour guide a lady the driver pick me up and at the end ask me if I want to go back to my hotel or want to be near to another place, therefore I went to the main plaza. For me was an extra push :
Fascinating underground experience with a knowledgable guide. Pickup and drop off at hotel was on time courteous driver, too.
Fab. My husband was really surprised at the statues and especially the church. Not what you expect from a normal mine. Lots of steps downwards. A bit slippy at times but ok if you hold the rails.
Great day out worth every penny. Very professional and knowledgeable guide.

The whole experience was great. Good value for money as the tour was very well organised.

Great experience and well worth while visiting whilst in Krakow.0
