Description

Choosing this tour- you will be able to enjoy the comfort of private transport straight from your hotel to the Wieliczka Salt Mine. Save your time- you will not have to drive around the city during the pick-ups (like during the regular tours). Your English-speaking driver will take good care of you- in the Salt Mine you will join the group under th supervision of Expert guide from the place.

The tour starts with a descent down the stairs to the depth of 64 meters. Visitors are led through a number of chambers and shown underground lakes, shrines and salt monuments.
Visit the first tourist trail in Wieliczka which was established as early as at the turn of the 19th century. About a hundred years later the salt mine was designated as one of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites (1978). The underground trail leads through numerous drifts, galleries and chambers, where traces of mining activity have been preserved, as well as examples of sacred art, theme compositions relating to the history of the mine and legends. Moreover, the microclimate of the mine has a beneficial impact on visitors who suffer from asthma and allergies. The trip finishes at the level of 135 meters below the surface. Visitors return to the surface by lift.

After the visit you will be driven back straight to your hotel.

The whole tour (with the transport) takes around 4h including 2h visit in the Salt Mine.

We had a private driver booked from 9am until 1:30. Paid. Our flight was delayed by 18 hours. So we got to Krakow at 10am. But although everything was paid and in theory our driver with us until 1:30. There was no flexibility. Nothing. But they took the money Worst company in Poland

Poor communication and lack of communication with details of procedure. Also, no one to meet me at end of tour so I had difficulty to find my car for the return journey, and was not aware the driver had been changed which caused another problem in trying to locate him.

L'escursione in se e per se bella, ma l'organizzazione pessima. Soprattutto durante il recupero delle persone alla fine dell'escursione. Abbiamo vagato oltre 30 minuti per poter trovare il ns transfert. Incredibile!
