Full description

Tour Leader will assist you with entrance to the museum. Sightseeing takes place 135 m below the surface. Get ready to walk down 800 stairs to get to the starting point.

The tour takes up to 3 hours. Channel your inner miner, exploring the depths of underground chambers, churches, and altars made of salt. After a 2.5 km walk with a licensed guide provided by the museum, you'll return to the surface with an original elevator used by the miners. The Wieliczka Salt Mine reaches a depth of 327 meters and extends via horizontal passages and chambers for over 287 kilometers (178 miles).

The rock salt is naturally of varying shades of grey, resembling unpolished granite rather than the white crystalline substance that might be expected.

I enjoyed all of the tour, unfortunately my wife was unable to do it due to mobility issues, you would need to be in full health to do this tour, apart from 800 steps down, there is quite a long walk to endure approx 3-4 km Not for the faint hearted.

The advice was wonderful. The only flaw was from getyourguide who were unclear in the email as they had written me that there was a time change and I had assumed that no confirmation response was needed. the guide in Italian and for this mistake they had canceled my reservation.Obviously I didn't accept that this would happen after I had paid online and they remedied by letting us go with the guide in Spanish that all in all we could understand a little bit. it's really gorgeous.
