Full description
Starting at the Wieliczka Salt Mine main gate, an English-speaking tour guide will hand you your entrance ticket and your tour will begin. The group will then descend the 378 stairs 64 meters down to level 1, where you will receive a brief explanation about safety regulations in the mine. Following this, your English-speaking guide will take you 140 meters deeper underground for a 2.5-hour tour almost 3 kilometers in length. The tour consists of a regular tourist route during which you will discover long corridors, unique chambers with amazing carvings, and statues made of salt. You will hear of the legend of St. Kinga and see her amazing underground chapel, as your guide explains to you the miners' daily routines. You will have an opportunity to get to know everything about salt extraction whilst hearing stories about past times when salt was referred to as "white gold". At the conclusion of the route you will be granted time to explore the souvenir shop and snack bar, and from there you will return to the surface with the high-speed lift.

CATASTROPHIC organization! We had reserved a ticket for 3:50 pm, the guide calls us at 12:45 pm saying "where are you? I am waiting for you to collect the tickets". So first error on the part of the tour, not resolved since finally on our electronic tickets it was noted 3:50 pm or the visit officially started at 3:30 pm !!!! We had to call / finally see 4 different people to resolve the problem. NOW, incredible site, once we got there. Our guide Evelyna (?) Was top notch. Headphones not necessary because confined space and much better sound!
