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.

excellent tour but not enough time to see everything. we arrived at 11.20 and had to wait till 12pm for the tour to start but needed to be back on the bus for 14.15 so missed seeing alot. I would have liked another hour to see the museum and the shops.

What an amazing experience from start to finish! Our taxi driver was lovely and gave clear instructions regarding meeting points and time slots. The mines itself are breathtaking our English speaking guide was brilliant, very informative. I would recommend this trip to anyone and everyone, thank you! Stacey & Mike
