don't miss this trip. Guides were great and so friendly and helpful. Everything was perfectly arranged and we were well looked after. Not to mention the spectacular salt cathedral. get the audio guide if you prefer not to be in a big group of 40 plus people.... definitely just as informative and you get to spend longer taking photos or simply enjoying the experience.
