Loved the Salt Mine however didn’t get a chance to go to the free museum due to needing to be back at the van for pick up. Also was supposed to be picked up from meeting point at 10:30/11 but it got pushed back to 11:45 and I was informed at 10:30 when I was already at the meeting point which was quite annoying. The driver to the salt mines isn’t the same person who guides you around either. Would still recommend visiting the mine either way.

‘Was fab!’ said one traveller. 'Guides were friendly and helpful’ said another. I personally thought it was really well paced and full of rich history. One pice of feedback is that since we went in the middle of winter we would have preferred a hot lunch instead of the cold pasta and roll we were provided. But otherwise excellent tour

Mine and breathtaking visit. A bit of a wait at the start and an organization that skates a bit for the constitution of groups and the distribution of tickets, but nothing serious.

Excellent tour. Just had an issue with meeting the guide. We were informed to meet in front of unesco sign. Not clear at all.

It was an amazing and truly eye opening experience
