The 'skip the line' only means that you don't have to queue up for a ticket at the location, it doesn't mean you just walk straight in. You are given a set time, usually 20 - 30 mins after you arrive, which is fine if the weather is good. The tour itself is very informative and well planned. I recommend you take some water or other drink as the tour is quite long.

Great experience. Brilliant. I was picked up on time. The meeting point is clearly marked. The driver was brilliant, got me there and back safely. Explained everything to me so I knew exactly what to expect. What an experience, if you are thinking about this and booking with this company.... Stop thinking... Just book it!!

Overall the information given was not sufficient. The morning pick-up was not good, we drove around twice to the same place wasting about half an hour. When we came out from the mine nobody knew what to do - so to begin with we all just sat around outside. And then under our own initiative we went to find the coach. The guide inside the mine was fantastic. The earphones were useless, so we missed a lot of what was said.
