    De e hele exursie was goed georganiseerd. Alles was goed begeleid en sloot goed op elkaar aan. De zoutmijnen zelf zijn zeer de moeite waard. Er is heel veel interessants te zien. De gids Bart was een enthousiaste jonge man die op een prettige manier, luid en duidelijk (vanwegen corona zonder geluidsapparatuur) de groep informeerde en in de gaten hield. De mijnen zelf zijn zeer goed onderhouden. De trappen en paden zijn goed toegankelijk voor mensen die 'goed ter been' zijn.

    We had such a brilliant time on our tour. Our guide Marek was fantastic. He was funny and welcoming and well informed. The driver to and from was excellent too. Well organised and worth the money.
