Sehr interessante und spannende Tour. Pünktliche Abholung vom Hotel mit freundlichem und kompetenten Fahrer und Guide. Unbedingt empfehlenswert. Auch die Tour Kazimierz, jüdisches Ghetto und Schindlers Fabrik mit Guide Valentino war super: tolle Organisation, kompetente und witzige Stadtführung mit einem grossartigem Guide. Beide Touren haben Krakau zu einem unvergesslichen Erlebnis für uns gemacht.

Salt mines, super cool! The visit is very interesting, it is not necessary to take a guided tour since yes or if they force you to go for a language with someone guiding you and explaining to you in a small group (very pleasant). The low rating is due to transportation, a rude carrier at the beginning of the tour, they made the wrong address and the return was more of the same. Apart from that, everything is great in the mines.
