We visited during the easing of lockdown in Poland so were subject to the restrictions in the mine but they were brilliant. Temperature tested before entry and queuing outside to wait for a tour guide (shelter provided). The groups are roughly 20 in size and are guided with a very knowledgable employee. There are 800 steps down to the mine with two sections to have a rest on benches (with places for snacks and the toilet). The mine is an incredible experience with great photo opportunities and takes about 2-3 hours. Just remember to take good shoes and a light jacket as it is between 14-16 degrees down there.

This tour was excellent! Well organised, on time and communicative making sure everyone knows where to meet, when, etc. The drive to the mines was shorter than taking the normal bus and access all arranged and well managed. Highly recommend! Visiting the mines was a great experience! I was awed and surprised at the amazing things the miners turned many of the carved out spaces into. A chapel still used today for mass, restaurant, other interesting things. Really worth a visit!

We were picked up at the designated place and whisked away on the 25 minute journey in a lovely clean car. The mines themselves are like nothing I've ever encountered or even imagined! The tour guide was full of insights about the rooms as well as life down in the mines. There is ALOT of stairs (all going down) and you cover alot of distance so comfortable shoes are a must! At the end our driver met us and took us back to where we were picked up.

Be aware that at the start of the tour, there are a lot of wooden stairs to descend. I felt a bit panicked at first but it was fine, people took their time. As you go down, there are numbers on the wall. The bottom of the stairs is number 54, each flight was 6 steps. There is a lift at the end of the tour to bring you back up. And there's a restaurant in the mine to rest and have something to eat. It's worth the effort.

He was very nice before and after the tour, and he was punctual yet patient at the same time. I was about 4 minutes late for the initial meet-up time, I was lost and he saw me circling around the meeting point and came to me and kindly called out my name :) Respects privacy, but at the same time endearing and cheerful. Plus his driving was great! Smooth but fast, he'll get you there on time in no time :D
