We had a great young girl has our guide, she was very knowledgeable about the mine. There are lots of steps to go down to start the tour but a lift brings you back up. But is very cramped but good.. it’s amazing down there in the big halls. Coffee shop and toilets half way round tour. Highly recommend.

The day started with being collected on a very nice, clean and comfortable mini bus by our driver.
He was very up beat and told us about landmarks we were passing by.
We arrived at the salt mine after a short drive and he sorted all our tickets and headsets for our guided tour.

We set out on our climb down to the mine it’s self which was 380 steps on a fairly easy descent.
The guide was very knowledgeable and gave us lots of information along the way.
There are lots of impressive caverns with carvings done by the miners as well as a cathedral and other places of worship. These are simply breath taking and come from no where!

Well worth the visit, my only criticism is the tour felt quite rushed.

We used this company for airport transfers from and to the airport ( booked through our accommodation at Stradonia apts). The airport transfers were perfect both arrived early for us and exceptionally comfortable vehicles and delightful drivers. We also booked a salt mine tour through the Stradonia apts with this company and it ran like clockwork again with fantastic driver and very good air conditioned minibus. I would not hesitate to use this company again and thank you to all our wonderful drivers.

We used this company for our trip to the Salt Mines. We were picked up on time and driven to the mines where we had skip the queue tickets and a guide to take us round. Driver was really friendly and we were dropped off at our hotel on the way back. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend them.

We used Kraków Direct for all our activities during a 4 day visit to the city. This was a definite highlight! Picked up promptly from our hotel by a very polite driver in an immaculate Mercedes mini bus. The salt mines are incredible and a real must if you are staying in the city, with an English speaking expert guide and eat pieces linked to her mic so that everyone could hear. Such good value too. Hugely recommend.

We (3 of us) wanted to be sure to be collected at the right time and the right place to and from the Salt Mines, and we were, excellent informative helpful driver Michael, so this is particularly to recommend Krakow Direct.
We joined the English speaking tour of the Salt Mines, Michael gave us tickets, and we got ourselves the authorisations to take photos (only 10 zloty each) before it started. The tour of the salt mines itself is outside the control of Krakow Direct, but actually the tour is excellent, up to 40 people, but you have audio, so you can hear, no problem. We enjoyed it, very interesting.
You could presumably arrange a private tour if you wanted, but we didn't think it was necessary at all.

Brilliant tour, we had Michael as our driver, who not only was very funny with he's jokes about America embassy (McDonald's) but was also very informative and pointed out places and sights of interest.
The mine is great be prepared for a lot of steps and walking but its all worth it, i can assure you.

The tour was good, and the atmosphere in the mine was pleasant. It wasn’t too cold or hot. Our driver was timely and very courteous.
