Full description
Start your tour from your hotel where your English-speaking tour guide will meet you according to the time of your booking. After a short meet and greet take a scenic 40-minute drive to the Wieliczka Salt Mine where your adventure begins.  Once you arrive in Wieliczka you will take an exhilarating walk downstairs, covering 64-meters, at which point you will have a personal session with a guide who will inform you of all safety regulations and health information for your mine visit. Next, your English-speaking guide will take you 140-metres underground for a 2.5 hour tourist walk. The walk will span almost 3 kilometres. Along the way you will have the chance to witness many unique chambers, carvings and statues made of salt. At the end of your walk you will have the chance to stop by the souvenir shop or purchase a bite to eat at the snack bar. After taking the high-speed lift up to the surface you will be returned to your hotel in Kracow.

Tour to the salt mine

The tour at the mine was great and I recommend it. But we ordered a private transport and the pickup time was 9:55 but we should be ready 9:40. At 10:20 I called and asked where the driver was. They checked and told me that the new time was 10:35 but I haven't got any message about that. The car came att 10:40.
