    Well organized, entertaining, must-do in Cracow!

    I booked this tour for myself and my 2 English-speaking friends. I loved how easy it was to find the meeting point and how everything was well organized. There was no need for transportation since there are public buses running between Cracow and Wieliczka (bus stop: Kopalnia Soli). The Salt Mine was really fun and we learned a lot from the tour guide. I only wish we had more time to explore the mine but I guess these are the constraints of such a touristy place. Great tour!

    We really enjoyed this Tour . We travelling via tram/bus from Krakow Jewish Qtr. It was cheap, simple & punctual . The Salt Mine was fabulous to see and to explore its vast history. Our English-speaking guide - Matthew - really knew his stuff. We’re so glad to have visited today .

    Cheap way to get a tour

    There was a bit of faffing around when we first arrived the tour rep was running late and so we had to wait a bit longer than expected to get lined up to a salt mine tour guide. It was however cheaper than arriving at the salt mine and paying for a tour on the day so didn’t mind. Definitely a tour that should be done!
