My visit was fine but my visit time was changed from 11am to 9am. Apparently this is a common occurrence. Why let people select the time they want then change it? How do you know they haven't made other arrangements?

Amazing and not to be missed. Tour Guide was very knowledgeable and obviously loved the Salt Mine. Whole experience with headout was brilliant, company kept us informed about the trip on a regular basis. I have used the company to book more trips in Kraków and also for our holiday in the summer. Highly recommend to anyone who is looking to book trips.

At first I was only skeptical about the reservation because I wasn't getting any further directions, then the day before I was given all the directions, departure point, time and means of transportation, all accurate, upon arrival the guide picked us up and everything went well

The route is approximately 135 meters below ground level. You must descend down 800 stairs to reach the starting point of the tour. A guide will accompany you throughout the experience, giving you incredible insight into the salt mine. This route is approximately 2 kilometers and will take you about 3 hours to explore. At the end of the tour, you will take an elevator ride back to the top. You will then be transferred back to your hotel, completing an enlightening experience.
