    Full description
    Benefit from private roundtrip transportation from Krakow to the famous Wieliczka Salt Mine and take an in-depth guided tour through the stunning 13th century UNESCO-listed site. Witness beautiful chambers carved in salt on a 3 km underground route. After your hotel pickup in Krakow, enjoy a private transfer ride to the nearby town of Wieliczka. Prearranged tickets will be waiting for you at the salt mine along with a local guide. Start the tour inside the salt mine by walking down long sets of steps, taking you 135 meters underground and through labyrinthine passageways, tunnels, and shafts. See underground lakes, 4 chapels, and unique statues carved by miners out of rock salt. Experience a unique place to visit and a must-see during your stay in Krakow. Once the guided tour is over, take a lift from the underground back up to the main ground level. Your driver will then drive you back to your accommodation in Krakow.

    Unique tour....don’t worry about steps they are all wide, well banistered wooden ones and you use a lift to ascend at the end of the tour. However, be aware that there is 6k of walking at a reasonable rate. Collection and delivery to hotel well organised with freedom to call when ready for collection.

    Transfer excellent

    Mines interesting and well organised. Very busy tourist attractions all about the salt not much about workers hence 4 stars. Felt a bit of a conveyer belt experience.
