Full description

Enjoy a hotel pickup and 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, hop on a shared transfer ride to the nearby town of Wieliczka. Sit back and relax along your journey, enjoying the view along your ride. Skip the hassle of booking on site, and enjoy the prearranged tickets hat 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, four chapels, and unique statues carved by miners out of rock salt. Immerse yourself fully in the experience of visiting a unique place and a must-see attraction during your stay in Krakow. Once the guided tour is over, take a lift from the underground back up to the main ground level, marveling at the space around you once outside. Your driver will then drive you back to your accommodation in Krakow.

    It was really amazing. The driver who picked us up was a really nice guy, really took care of everything. Told us a lot about the city, showed us where we had to go, picked up the tickets and was waiting for us when we were done. Also the tour itself was amazing, really nice guide en everything was very clear.
